Medoc Crus Classes, Chateau Mouton Rothschild
32 of 39

July - Medoc cru classé 2002

Château Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac 1CC

Opulent yet restrained aromas which give the impression of ripeness. A sense of hedonism pervades here - and it's very welcome too. Long and elegant with good depth of fruit, well woven tannins and a long, sensuous finish. 18.5pts/20
