    Description

    Composed of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Mouton Rothschild has an opaque garnet-purple color. WOW—the nose explodes from the glass with powerful blackcurrant cordial, black raspberries, blueberry pie and melted chocolate notions, plus suggestions of aniseed, camphor, lifted kirsch and the faintest waft of a subtle floral perfume in the background. Full-bodied, concentrated, bold and totally seductive in the mouth, it has very fine-grained, silt-like tannins, while jam-packed with tightly wound fruit layers, finishing in this wonderful array of mineral sparks. Magic.  RP/100

    A generous, pure and lush ball of Cabernet, with wave after wave of unadulterated cassis and blackberry puree flavors rolling through. Features notes of roasted apple wood and sweet tobacco, offset by a long tug of sweet earth, but that’s all background music to the impressive core of fruit, which steams along like a cruise ship with enough stores in reserve to go around the world twice without stopping. Best from 2025 through 2045. WS/98

    The rich fruit in this wine nearly envelops the tannins. Flavors of black plums, blackberries and blueberries meld with intense acidity to mask the power and concentration of the polished tannins. With this structure, will age for many, many years. Do not drink before 2026. WE/98

    The 2016 Mouton Rothschild bowled me over when I tasted it from barrel. Philippe Dhalluin compares it to the 1986 in terms of intensity of fruit, although there is more maturity and refinement in the tannins apropos of the 2016. Bottled in July 2018, this has an intense bouquet with pixelated black fruit, crushed stone, hints of blue fruit and a touch of India ink. But it is the delineation and focus that take your breath away. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin framing the pure black currant and cassis fruit. The acidity is pitch-perfect, and there is a gentle but insistent grip toward the extraordinarily long finish. Racking my brains to think of another Mouton Rothschild that I have tasted over the last 20 years that was as good as this, I simply cannot come up with one. AG/100

    Dark ruby, purple color. Aromas of blackcurrants, black truffle, crushed stone, licorice and hints of tar. Full-bodied, deep and vertical on the palate, drawing you in and down. The structure is very tannic and powerful, yet the tannins are folded into the wine. One of the most powerful Moutons ever for me. Try after 2027. JS/100

    格付けの歴史の中で唯一、メドック格付け第一級に昇格したシャトー・ムートン・ロスチャイルド。5大シャトーの中で特に明快かつ最も豪勢と評される味わいと、毎年、稀代の著名なアーティストが描くアートラベルで、世界中のワインラヴァーを愉しませる一流のシャトーです。2016年のラベルには、素描をコマ撮りした「動くドローイング」と呼ばれる手描きアニメーションで有名な、南アフリカ・ヨハネスブルク出身のウィリアム・ケントリッジ氏による作品が選ばれました。実は、アフリカ大陸出身者がラベルのアーティストとして選ばれるのは今回が初。作品『バッカス神の勝利』で描かれるのは、楽しげな行進のシルエットで、数々の巨匠の絵画に描かれてきたバッカス神のキャラクターに着想を得ています。偉大なワインは何よりもまず楽しむものであると同時に、尊敬と節度を求める文化の伝統とも不可分である、との同氏の思いが込められています。黒味を帯びた、深みのある紫色の外観。黒スグリやスミレ、ブラックベリー、バラ、プラムの濃密なアロマに重なる、アジアンスパイスやクローブ、エスプレッソ、土、タール、シナモンなどの様々なニュアンスが実に巧妙なアクセントになっています。エネルギッシュな口当たりに、強固なストラクチャーが印象的。洗練されたミネラルと継ぎ目のない、熟したタンニンが広がり、熱を感じるほどの豊満な味わいに誰しもが魅了されます。グレートヴィンテージを証明するかのごとく、力強い余韻がいつまでも続いていきます。
