Château Mouton Rothschild 1959 

Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé 

u. h/ms, label soiled, scuffed and slightly torn, slightly corroded capsule, US import slip label and with Taiwan importer's slip

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

酒標藝術家:理查•利波爾德。美不勝收的李子芬芳,充滿著香料的馥鬱香氣。極純正的薄荷味就像納帕谷的海氏.瑪莎酒莊(Heitz Martha's Vineyard)巔峰時出產的佳釀。愉悅佳美,甜蜜可口、令人眩惑。極濃郁的巧克力回甘,就像巧克力包裹著黑加侖子。引人入勝的妙曼佳作,成熟且極具異國風情。這款佳釀經常被人拿來跟風格迥異的1961年份互為比較,眾人一般都此佳釀一票。於幾乎半個世紀後的2008年,此酒已是技壓群雄。既有薄荷、尤加利葉的香氣,也有濃鬱飽滿的奇美口感--如甘油一樣。是為享樂派而生的醇美珍釀!收結時帶燒焦的黑加侖子、甘草及咖啡豆氣息。施慧娜 (葡萄酒大師M.W.)
