Mouton Rothschild 1996, 750mL (WA94, ST96, WS96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Mouton Rothschild

750mL

Vintage: 1996
Region: France--Bordeaux
Appellation: Pauillac

WA94, ST96, WS96
Rated 96 points by Stephen Tanzer`s International Wine Cellar: `(77% cabernet sauvignon, 13% merlot and 10% cabernet franc; pH 3.85; IPT 73; 12.7% alcohol; 83% new oak):? Bright ruby with a palish rim.? Intense, fragrant aromas of strawberry, iris, coffee, white pepper and bay leaf are lifted by an aromatic spice note; one can recognize the cabernet franc here.? Rich, dense and suave, with very pure red fruit, cedar and herb flavors that coat the palate and are nicely carried by vibrant, harmonious acidity.? Finishes with outstanding length, noble tannins and a late spicy, floral kick.? This outstanding Mouton has improved enormously since its release.? Tourbier agrees:? `We were a little worried initially that this Mouton seemed too rigid, almost austere.? Instead, it did a complete turnaround once bottled, surprising us as well.``
