CHATEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1959
Château Mouton Rothschild 1959
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé
u. ts, heavily torn, deteriorated and bin-soiled label, slightly bin-soiled and slightly corroded capsule, excellent color and clarity

Label Artist: Richard Lippold Incredible plummy nose, full of scented spices. Real mintiness as well, à la Heitz Martha's Vineyard at its zenith. Glorious, sweet and heady. Super chocolate finish, like chocolate-covered blackcurrants. Marvellously fascinating, ripe and exotic. Riveting to compare with the stylistically quite different 1961 and the room usually divides on this one. At its half century, this was an absolute knock-out. Peppermint, eucalyptus nose. Incredibly rich and voluptuous on the palate - total glycerol. A wine for hedonists! Burnt cassis berries and liquorice, with coffee beans on the end. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 100
