Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1996

Regular price $1,255.00

🍷 Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild bought Brane- Mouton at auction in 1853 and re-named it to what we now know as Mouton-Rothschild. The Estate is Paulliac has remained family owned till this day, now run by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, who took over from her father in 1988. She stepped down from her acting career to carry on the family legacy. Her father, Baron Phillipe de Rothschild, who was only 20 years old when he took over! Quite the shock at the time, Baron Phillipe made Mouton Rothschild what it is today. 🍷 The 1996 still has the racy acidity common with the vintage. Loads of Earth, black current, sweet red fruit, graphite, cedar, and tobacco notes. 🍴 Braised Oxtail over creamy, buttery mashed potatoes.
