Appellation: Pauillac, Bordeaux (First Growth, 1855 Bordeaux Classification)
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
The Mouton-Rothschild 2004 was the first vintage for Philippe Dhalluin, who was so successful in persuading the late Philippine de Rothschild to institute a more strict selection with respect to Mouton-Rothschild. The outstanding 2004 exhibits delicious notes of cedarwood, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrants and toast. The wine possesses outstanding concentration, medium to full body, excellent purity, hints of forest floor and underbrush, and sweet, velvety tannin. It is on a fast evolutionary track, so consume this over the next 10-15 years. Drink 2014 - 2029.
