Lot Details


Château Mouton Rothschild 1996

Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé

Excellent levels and appearance, tissue wrapped; Excellents niveaux et apparence, enveloppées de papier de soie

Label Artist: Gu Gan

In 2019 and from Jeroboam, wonderfully youthful and full of Cabernet Sauvignon ebullience. Exuberant and fresh on bouquet and palate, it is packed with black fruit and cedarwood promise, utterly gulpable now but obviously headed for future fame, especially in this format. This has really flowered, with impressive middle fruit and a long finish- it still looks like a teenager! In 2020, from bottle, just a glorious blast of cassis, rich and full and all velvety volume. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
