Read Decanter's tasting note for Château Mouton Rothschild 1996, simply one of the most aromatically interesting Mouton's ever.

Château Mouton Rothschild 1996

A Mouton of absolutely outstanding perfume, in which the 10% Cabernet Franc really shines: cocoa, white pepper, strawberry, simply one of the most aromatically interesting Mouton’s ever. The 13% Merlot and only 77% Cabernet Sauvignon in this blend have made for a suppler, more open knit Mouton than usual. Knockout wine.
