Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 2004 Pauillac 1er-Cru 150cl
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.
This 2004 vintage bottling features artwork by HRH The Prince Of Wales.
Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation. Indeed, this "Magnum" presents a fantastic investment opportunity for long-term cellaring.
Please note there shall be a shipping charge for 2 bottles applied to this lot.
