Tasting Notes

I was always under the impression that the '69 Mouton Rothschild was an unqualified failure, as well it should have been given the difficulty of the vintage...I was wrong. While brick in color, the wine has an engaging forest floor/cedar/smoked meat quality and a Right Bank Merlot-like warmth to it. Medium bodied, balanced acidity, and moderately lengthy finish. A great find in the hard-to-locate 1969 vintage. "Off year" Moutons will always be a bit pricey, as the scarcity of bottles from these years has driven up the price to collectors. Enjoy the 1969 Mouton — but don't linger over it: the wine should be drunk within one to two hours after opening. The artist is Miró. (Joe Zugelder, 2010)
