Über das Objekt

A CHURCHILL OF A WINE\nHistory\n\nChâteau Mouton Rothschild is a member of an elite group of Premier Cru estates in the commune of Pauillac and has the enviable position of controlling 207 acres in arguably some of the world's most important terroir. While Pauillac is not the largest of the communal appellations, that honor falls to Margaux, it is no coincidence that no fewer than three of the four Premier Crus and no fewer than fifteen other classified châteaux, nearly one third of those in the 1855 Classification, reside on this most important place of French 'terroir'. As a commune, Pauillac is split in two by a stream which flows diagonally across the territory in a north-easterly direction. North and west of this stream the land gently rises to a height of 27 meters above sea level, it is on this side that both Rothschild estates and Pontet-Canet can be found. South and east lie the Bages and Grand-Puy-Lacoste plateaux, the Bataileys, the Pichons and of course Château Latour. The soil in Pauillac is heavy gravel, thicker to the north than to the south and based on a subsoil of larger stones and iron based sand. It is precisely this soil quality that lends itself to excellent drainage in damp years. When combined with the old vines found at many of the estates and the relatively high water table the ability to withstand a dry season is the secret magic underneath this venerable terroir and of the resultant wines.\n\nAt Mouton the classic Bordeaux varietal mix of Cabernet Sauvignon (77, Merlot (12, Cabernet Franc (9 and Petit Verdot (2 is observed in the vineyard. Average age of the vines are 48 years and are planted to a high-density ratio of plants to acre. At it's best this combination produces as full and concentrated a wine as you are likely to find in the Médoc. To be "Mouton" the wine will have its unmistakable opulence and a seductive aromatic cedar wood like complexity which makes for an exhilarating consumable liquid.\n\n\n\n\nProperty of a Gentleman\n\nRecently removed by Christie's from a temperature and humidity controlled, professionally maintained storage facility.\nChâteau Mouton-Rothschild--Vintage 1945\nPauillac, 1er cru classé \nLevels: base of neck; one cut capsule verified château stamped cork with vintage visible, lightly bin soiled Réserve du Château lables, Reserve Nicolas neck labels and stamped labels \nIn original wooden case\n"I originally coined the phrase 'a Churchill of a wine', meaning larger than life, imediately recognisable, complex, endlessly fascinating, unforgettable. The only first growth I tasted in its (relative) youth. In July 1954 I wrote 'dark, deep, (yet) translucent; amazing nose. Quite unlike any other claret, spicy, Indian mango chutney (!). Loaded with tannin, acidity and all the good things. Full and flavoury'. Apart from the chutney, it still applies. The first thing to notice is its extraordinary colour. I have on more than one occasion recognised the wine by this alone. And its bouquet is equally distinctive, in fact one of the most astonishing smells ever to emerge from grapes grown out of doors. The power and spiciness surges out of the glass like a sudden eruption of Mount Etna: cinnamon, eucalyptus, ginger, 'Friars Balsam' (noted once!). Impossible to describe but imimitable, incomparable, and, because of this and its appearance, several times 'guessed' blind. There is simply no other wine like it. Its taste is a component of smell, its fragrance is reflected on the palate. Still lovely, still vivacious. Seemingly tireless -- indeed another half century anticipated. June 2001 ****** (6 stars)."
