Château Mouton Rothschild 1978

SKU:1035/78 Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 12.5° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 85

A first growth since 1973, Château Mouton Rothschild is one of the world's greatest wines. Owned by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, the only child of the legendary Baron Philippe, Château Mouton Rothschild has 84 hectares of vines in Pauillac. The terroir is outstanding, with well-drained soil and great sun exposure. The greatest care and attention are lavished on Mouton Rothschild at every step of the way, from the vine to the bottle, combining both age-old methods and state-of-the-art techniques. In 1853, Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild, acquired Château Brane-Mouton, which he renamed Mouton Rothschild. In 1922, his great-grandson, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, decided to take over management of the estate. He oversaw winemaking, leaving a strong mark on the estate and introducing many innovations. In 1926, he built the famous grand chai, one of the major attractions during a visit to Mouton. 1945 marked the beginning of a painting by a famous artist on the label of every vintage of Mouton. Inaugurated in 1962, a Museum of Wine in Art, displaying three millennia of works of art revolving around the theme of wines and vines, attracts thousands of visitors.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
In many ways the 1978 Mouton is nearly as disappointing as the 1979. Medium ruby-colored, with a straightforward bouquet of green coffee beans, dried berry fruit, and new oak, this compact, angular, austere wine is lacking concentration, and appears to be dropping its fruit more quickly than its brutal tannin. It is a dubious effort, particularly for a first-growth. Last tasted, 6/93.
