1er Grand Cru Classé

2014 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac, France

Climatic conditions
2014 will be remembered as a year of contrasts.

Spring arrived in due course after a typical Bordeaux winter, though April was much sunnier and drier than the average. A wet and cool May was followed by a spell of bright and sunny weather, despite some highly localised heavy rainfall, mainly due to storms on 22 and 23 June. The weather in summer was very changeable. July was generally fine and slightly warmer than the average, whereas August was quite a lot cooler and much less sunny, though drier, than normal. With the end of August came one of the longest and most exceptional Indian summers in winegrowing memory, bringing a succession of hot, sunny, and dry days which lasted until the end of October. Warm weather in April encouraged early budbreak, especially for the Merlot, while the extraordinary late season enabled the grapes to reach perfect maturity, retaining all the fruit flavours and favouring phenolic compounds. The harvest took place in ideal conditions, leaving plenty of time to pick the grapes at optimum maturity.

Harvest 19 September to 9 October 2014

Varietal mix Cabernet Sauvignon 81% Merlot 16% Cabernet Franc 3%

Tasting notes
The colour is a deep red with a purplish tint.

The refined and distinguished nose reveals very mature fruit aromas, pleasantly mingled with subtle spice and vanilla notes. The velvety attack fills the mouth with a mature and smooth body on silky, firm tannins which enfold a satin texture with a hint of minerality. The very long finish displays a harmonious combination of c0omplexity, opulence and freshness.

The 2014 Mouton-Rothschild was closed at first when I tasted the wine in bottle with winemaker Philippe Dhalluin. But as it transpires, this First Growth is just toying with you. Initially quite understated, it responds to aeration like a young child peeking from around a corner and then running out, waving its hands. It suddenly hits you with gorgeous black cherries, bilberry, cedar and wilted rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry. This is utterly seductive: a wine without a hair out of place. It is not as powerful or as complex as the 2015 Mouton-Rothschild, yet the precision and focus here is beguiling. It will require five to seven years to absorb the 100% new oak, then it will be an utterly delicious and to use a term employed at en primeur, "cerebral" First Growth that is destined to give two or three decades of pleasure.
