Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2000 Bordeaux Jeroboam 5l
Chateau Mouton Rothschild, First Growth Bordeaux has 90 hectares of vines in Pauillac, in the Médoc. Its history is that of a magical encounter between a terroir and a man, the legendary Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988), renovator of Mouton and a pioneering figure in the world of wine. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (1933-2014) who owned the property, has continued her father’s work and reaffirmed the link between Mouton and art while ensuring the continued excellence of one of the world’s greatest wines. Now it is owned by Baroness Philippine children.
"The 2000 Mouton Rothschild is at its best with about 24-48 hours of decanting. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, the wine offers a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to reticent but promising aromas of toast, coffee, licorice, creme de cassis, and roasted nuts. Dense, chewy, and backward, with tremendous purity and density in addition to obvious toasty oak, it is full-bodied, powerful, tannic, and backward. Twenty-four to 48 hours of aeration only hints at its ultimate potential. This blockbuster will be exceptionally long-lived.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050+."
