Tasting Notes

Vinous – 95

The 2012 Mouton-Rothschild is an excellent wine for the vintage. Copious blackberry and blueberry fruits burst from the glass with incense and crushed violet scents, beautifully defined and perhaps even “audacious” for the growing season. The palate is “glossy” when compared directly to the other First Growth, yet there is brilliant delineation with a sense of tension on the finish. It’s a vivid and almost brash Mouton-Rothschild, but quite compelling. Tasted blind in Bordeaux. [Neal Martin, 26/01/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2050

Very heavy bottle! Intense, glamorous nose with real density and pizzazz. Sweet end. Neat and convincing first-growth quality. [05/03/2022]

Robert Parker – 96

Tasted blind at the 2012 Southwold tasting, the 2012 Mouton-Rothschild showed magnificently (as it subsequently did in a vertical just a few weeks later). It has an open, intense bouquet with pencil lead and cedar infusing the black fruit, tertiary in style at first but then transforming with aeration to a more marine-influenced bouquet-seaweed and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit. The tannins are ripe and fine, the acidity very well judged with a velvety, detailed finish that lingers long in the mouth. Density and harmony combine to make a stunning Mouton-Rothschild that should be afforded 15 years in bottle. It might be destined to be one of those wines forever eclipsed by recent outstanding vintages. Tasted January 2016. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2027-2060
