Château Mouton Rothschild 2006 is a captivating Bordeaux wine that embodies elegance and sophistication. With a deep and enticing color, it commands attention. The nose reveals a complex bouquet of blackberry, cassis, and subtle hints of tobacco, creating an alluring and layered aroma. On the palate, it offers a harmonious fusion of flavors, including dark fruits, plums, and delicate notes of spice. The wine's well-integrated tannins provide a smooth and velvety texture, contributing to a satisfying mouthfeel. The finish is long and graceful, with hints of dark chocolate and a touch of cedar. Château Mouton Rothschild 2006 showcases the artistry and craftsmanship of this esteemed estate, delivering a wine that is both refined and memorable.

Robert Parker - 96 Points

"Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2006 Mouton-Rothschild was really the wine that put winemaker Philippe Dhalluin on the map, in the sense that unlike the 2005 born in a great vintage, this 2006 had to transcend it. It remains one of the standouts of the growing season and actually replicates previous showings just the week earlier and in January. As expected, the nose has quite brilliant delineation with blackberry, graphite, here an almost cold slate-like scent. The palate is harmonious with the carefully judged acidity, fine-grain tannin and immense detail on the finish. Recent bottles suggest that it may close up for several years, in which case, either enjoy this in the next few months or cellar this for a few years and receive vinous dividends down the line. Tasted May 2016."

Antonio Galloni - 92 Points

"The 2006 Mouton Rothschild is dark, powerful and intense, with firm tannins that need time to soften. This is an especially dark, somber Mouton. Dark black fruit, smoke, menthol gravel and cured meats are some of the signatures. Slight vegetal notes underpin the fruit. I am not sure the 2006 has enough freshness to be a long-term ager or the depth of fruit to outlast the tannins. The blend is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot, harvested between September 20 and October 5."
