2008 Ch Mouton Rothschild - 1er Grand Cru Classe

2008 Ch Mouton Rothschild
2008 - 1er Grand Cru Classe - SKU: 129756

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot.  Powerful aromas of fine chalky minerals, blackberry and graphite.  Silky and very suave on the palate, where there are elegant, ripe red and dark fruits, excellent freshness and extremely fine, polished tannins.  Very complex, and with a long long-lasting finish, this is the epitome of elegance with power.  98 points, drink 2020 to 2040.  (April 2011).
