Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2006 Pauillac, Half Btl. 375ml
Half-Bottle, 375ml
The wine of the vintage according to Robert Parker. Scoring it 98+ points he has deemed the 2006 Mouton Rothschild their best wine since 1986. "A sensational effort, the 2006 Mouton Rothschild exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a classic Mouton perfume of creme de cassis, flowers, blueberries, and only a hint of oak. Dalhuin told me that in whisky barrel-tasting vintages such as 1989 and 1990, Mouton was aged in heavily-toasted barrels, and they have backed off to a much lighter toast for the barrels’ interior. I think this has worked fabulously well with the cassis quality fruit they get from their Cabernet Sauvignon. The full-bodied, powerful 2006 possesses extraordinary purity and clarity. A large-scaled, massive Mouton Rothschild that ranks as one of the top four or five wines of the vintage, it may turn out to be the longest-lived wine of the vintage by a landslide. The label will undoubtedly be controversial as a relative of Sigmund Freud, Lucian Freud, has painted a rather comical Zebra staring aimlessly at what appears to be a palm tree in the middle of a stark courtyard. I suppose a psychiatrist could figure out the relationship between that artwork and wine, but I couldn’t see one. This utterly profound Mouton will need to sleep for 15+ years before it will reveal any secondary nuances, but it is a packed and stacked first-growth Pauillac of enormous potential. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060+." In a half bottle it will mature more quickly and sooner be ready to enjoy. Very Limited!!!!

Delivery came quite suddenly. I was notified in the morning and it arrived in the afternoon. I wasn't home that day and had to get somebody to come and sign for it. I wish I were given more time.
