    Estimate

    Château Mouton-Rothschild 2005
    Pauillac, 1er cru classé
    Offered in an original wooden case
    Tasting note: Grand Vin Cépages: Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Merlot 14%, Cabernet Franc 1%. Unsurprisingly dramatic in every aspect: intensity of colour; the immediacy of its varietal aromas, great depth, opening up richly and sweetly in the glass; spicy, cloves (new oak), an exotic wine with fair strength (13.1% alcohol), silky, leathery tannins and great length. At the château, April 2006 (*****) 2020 – 2040. MB.
    12 bottles per lot
