Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1956 Pauillac 1er Cru Classe
Chateau Mouton-Rothschild is one of the great Bordeaux wine estates. In spite of its prominence, the estate was listed as only a 2nd-Growth in the famed 1855 Classification of Medoc - an injustice that was finally confirmed with their promotion to the exclusive rank of 1st-Growth in 1973.
The vineyards of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild are planted to 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot - a ratio to which their wine roughly follows with slight annual variation.
1956 vintage. Bottle No. 60,470.
The bottle bears an additional neck-label bearing the name Ed. Kressmann & Co. - a prominent Bordeaux negociant firm.
This bottle is in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
