This sublime Pauillac offers an explosive nose filled with coffee, asian spice, crème de cassis, tobacco, pepper and toasty oak that is dense, plush, rich, opulent and intense. With an exotic leaning, this stunning, mouth coating Bordeaux wine feels like pure silk and velvet meshed with power. This is a beautiful, exotic expression that shows all the reason why Mouton Rothschild deserves its reputation and First Growth status.
