Brand: Chateau Mouton Rothschild
Grape Varietal: Bordeaux Blend
Bottle Size: 0.75L
Tasting Notes: The 1999 Mouton-Rothschild is a useful, perhaps over-looked vintage from the First Growth estate. It has a clean and precise bouquet - you could almost describe this as dainty, which I mean in a positive sense. The fruit is beautifully delineated, almost pastille-like with subtle floral scents emerging with time. The palate is fresh on the entry with supple red berries pierced by a fine line of acidity. No, it is not complex and it has lost a little substance in recent years, yet it is well balanced with sufficient depth and body on the tobacco and cedar-tinged finish.
