The wine has an intense garnet hue with glittering highlights. All the depth and refinement of Cabernet Sauvignon is expressed on the nose in aromas of vanilla, bitter almond and nutmeg, with subtle mineral notes on airing. Very supple on the palate, this Mouton Rothschild displays perfect harmony on a linear structure that combines tannic heft with a pleasant minty freshness. The finish is complex, ending on spicy and very ripe fruit flavours. A great success for the vintage, the blend makes the most of two fully mature grape varieties, combining the body and complexity of Cabernet with the depth of flavour of Merlot.
