2012 Château Mouton-Rothschild, 1er Cru Pauillac

With a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend (90%), Mouton this year is a darkly attractive wine. Almost delicate on the nose, with perfumed notes of dark fruit, woodsmoke, cedar and violets. The palate is incredibly fresh and lively, bright acidity balancing silky-fine tannins. This framework of acidity and tannin encases the pretty dark berry fruit core, melding with more complex and fragrant notes of star anise, bitter chocolate and tobacco. Long on the finish, this is both elegant and serious.
