Made from 88 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 12 percent Merlot, the 2009 Chateau Mouton Rothschild shows a deep, inky-black colour with incredible intensity and vibrancy; The fat, opulent palate is massively complex with dark forest fruit flavours, cedar wood, fresh pencil shaving and spice - Don’t even think about opening until 2020, then enjoy for the next 30+ years.

The 2009 Mouton Rothschild has a striking label from Anish Kapoor. The wine is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot that begs comparison as a young wine with what the 1982 tasted like in 1985 or, I suspect, what the 1959 may have tasted like in 1962. Representing 50% of their production, the wine has an inky purple color to the rim and not terribly high alcohol for a 2009 (13.2%), but that is reflected by the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a remarkable nose of lead pencil shavings, violets, creme de cassis and subtle barrique smells. It is stunningly opulent, fat, and super-concentrated, but the luxurious fruit tends to conceal some rather formidable tannins in the finish. This is an amazing wine that will be slightly more drinkable at an earlier age than I thought from barrel, but capable of lasting 50 or more years. Kudos to the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and the entire Mouton team, lead by Monsieur Dalhuin.
Pauillac is situated in the heart of the Haut-Medoc and is arguably the most famous of the left bank appellations, not least because 3 of the 5 first growths are in the Pauillac appellation. The starting point for Pauillac's outstanding quality is the soil - largely free-draining gravel, which is ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Although the Chateaux have become increasingly adept at creating their own individual character, nonetheless there is still an identifiable Pauillac style: full, rich and characterized by the classic cassis and cedarwood aromas of oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon. The majority of Pichon-Lalande's vineyards are located to the south of the appellation on the border with St. Julien
