Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 Pauillac

100 Punkte von Jeb DunnuckAlong with the Château Lafite, the 2016 Château Mouton Rothschild is the wine of the vintage from the Médoc and is a truly profound, magical, blockbuster wine in every sense. It’s based on 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, raised in new French oak. Boasting a saturated purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of thick black fruits, lead pencil shavings, new saddle leather, and burning embers, with just a hint of its oak upbringing, this beauty hits the palate with a mammoth amount of fruit and texture yet stays fresh, pure, and light on its feet, with a thrilling sense of minerality as well as building tannins on the finish. It’s one of the most profound young wines I’ve ever tasted, and while it will probably keep for three-quarters of a decade, it offers pleasure even today. Bravo!

100 Punkte Vinous für den Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacAntonio Galloni Januar 2019:

A towering. thrilling wine. the 2016 Mouton Rothschild is unbelievably beautiful today. Aromatics. fruit density and vertical structure all come together. In the glass. the 2016 is remarkably vivid and powerful. and yet a gentler. more feminine side emerges with time in the glass. The intense. mineral. savory profile recalls the 1986. but the 2016 has more grace. inner sweetness and sophistication than that wine. Even so. the 2016 is going to need at least a number of years in bottle before it starts drinking well. although it won't be the bruiser the 1986 remains to this day. This is breathtaking wine from Mouton. Tecnical Director Philippe Dhalluin and his team.

100 Parker Punkte für Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacLisa Perrotti Brown am 30.11.2018

The 2016 Mouton Rothschild is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon. 15% Merlot. 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. with the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot vinified together. It has a very deep purple-black color and slowly slides out of the glass with spicy notes of Sichuan pepper. cloves and cinnamon stick giving way to a core of perfumed black fruits and florals—blackcurrant cordial. candied violets. blackberry compote. rose hips and black plums—plus suggestions of espresso. damp soil. tar and beef drippings. Medium-bodied. the palate is very firmly structured and jam-packed with latent energy about to burst. offering superbly ripe. grainy tannins and bold freshness to support the intense floral and black fruit layers and finishing very long and very minerally. Powerful. profound wine.

Mouton’s congenial managing director. Philippe Dhalluin. was unfortunately in Napa while I was in Bordeaux in October. so I was hosted by Eric Tourbier—Mouton’s technical director—and Clerc-Milon’s winemaker. Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy. While discussing the particularly abundant range of aroma/flavor compounds I was perceiving in the 2016 reds. Danjoy commented. “When you have a wet spring. you tend to have more aromatic precursors. Also. it was a long maturation period. The vine made a lot of aromatic components. The gap between the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon for ripening was very long. In fact. Cabernet was very late this year. We didn’t know if the Cabernet Sauvignon was going to make it! The big surprise for us was the Cabernet Franc—all of it was delicious. We used it all in the grand vin at Clerc Milon.” When we came to taste Le Petit Mouton and Mouton Rothschild. Eric Tourbier. smiling like the cat that got the cream. said simply. “It was a dry summer. We had very small berries and a good level of ripeness.” He then added. matter-of-factly. “I’ve been at Mouton for 30 years. I think this is my best vintage. The 2016 may be compared to the 1986?” Maybe. but while I’m a huge lover of the incredibly provocative and sometimes formidable 1986 (I had it again just a few weeks ago). I’m thinking this 2016 is going to give a lot more hedonic pleasure in its first 25 years in bottle than the 1986—just coming around now—certainly did.

100 Punkte Vinous | Neal Martin für den Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacNeal Martin im Januar 2019:

The 2016 Mouton Rothschild bowled me over when I tasted it from barrel. Philippe Dhalluin compares it to the 1986 in terms of intensity of fruit. although there is more maturity and refinement in the tannins apropos of the 2016. Bottled in July 2018. this has an intense bouquet with pixelated black fruit. crushed stone. hints of blue fruit and a touch of India ink. But it is the delineation and focus that take your breath away. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin framing the pure black currant and cassis fruit. The acidity is pitch-perfect. and there is a gentle but insistent grip toward the extraordinarily long finish. Racking my brains to think of another Mouton Rothschild that I have tasted over the last 20 years that was as good as this. I simply cannot come up with one.

100 Punkte James Suckling für den Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacJames Suckling im Februar 2019:

Dark ruby. purple color. Aromas of blackcurrants. black truffle. crushed stone. licorice and hints of tar. Full-bodied. deep and vertical on the palate. drawing you in and down. The structure is very tannic and powerful. yet the tannins are folded into the wine. One of the most powerful Moutons ever for me. Try after 2027.

James Suckling am 04.04.2017

This is a phenomenal. muscular red that shows incredible power and depth. Full-bodied and with great concentration of tannins but this remains agile and polished. The form to this is stupendous. Such precision and clarity. The new 1986 but better. (bei beiden Verkostungseindrücken vergab James Suckling die 100 Punkte)

A mouth-filling wine with supple and complete tannins that are caressing and engaging. Fascinating aromas and flavors of blackberries. iodine and violets. Extremely long and beautiful. Wait until 2024.

95 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Pavie Macquin 2017 Saint EmilionAntonio Galloni im März 2020:

The 2017 Pavie Macquin is a rich. deep and super-expressive wine with remarkable persistence. As always. Pavie Macquin is a potent Saint-Émilion. but the 2017 has terrific energy as well. In 2017. Pavie-Macquin is not as forthcoming in its youth as it can be. and is going to need a few years in bottle to truly come together. A bit of time in the glass brings out very pretty floral top notes and rich. sensual fruit that is such a signature of this site. Tasted three times.

97 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Pavie Macquin 2017 Saint EmilionLisa Perrotti Brown im März 2020:

Deep garnet-purple in color. the 2017 Pavie Macquin comes charging out of the glass with exuberant scents of warm black cherries. blackberry pie and wild blueberry coulis plus hints of menthol. licorice. candied violets and charcuterie. Medium-bodied. the palate is an exercise in precision and poise. featuring a beautiful frame of wonderfully ripe. very fine-grained tannins and bold freshness. finishing very long and multilayered. Simply stunning! The blend here is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. 70% new.

Chateau Figeac 2016 Saint Emilion

Chateau Figeac 2016 mit 97+ Parker Punkten bewertetLisa Perrotti Brown 30. November 2018

The 2016 Figeac is comprised of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon. 36% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored. the nose is a little broody and reticent at this very youthful stage. slowly unfolding to reveal profound plum preserves. crème de cassis. black raspberries and star anise with hints of moss-covered bark. truffles and tilled loam plus a waft of red currants and raspberry leaves sparks. Medium to full-bodied. the palate is practically quivering with energy. offering glimpses at tightly wound black fruit and mineral/ferrous layers. framed by very firm. ripe tannins and wonderful tension. finishing long with the spices coming through. This will need a good 7-8 years to come round and then should cellar for 40+ years. Very serious. beautifully poised and sophisticated personality this vintage.

“There was a little more water stress in 2016 than in 2018.” Frédéric Faye mentioned. “The cooler nights here helped us to avoid too much water stress this year. We are not de-leafing a lot now—just on one side to expose the grapes to the morning sun. but we do not de-leaf on the afternoon sun side. where it can get very hot.” Figeac continues along its upward trajectory in terms of heights of greatness and consistency. Faye has adeptly managed to maintain the energy in the wines that is a signature of Figeac while revealing more layers. polishing the tannins and. ultimately. offering slightly more muscle to the fruit core. Once his considerable efforts in the vineyards really kick in and the new winery is completed. I am incredibly excited to see what the future holds for this historic. truly special place.

98+ Punkte bei Vinous für den Chateau Figeac 2016 Saint EmilionAntonio Galloni Januar 2019:

The 2016 Figeac is simply extraordinary. A wine of pure energy and vitality. the 2016 pulses with a real sense of drive. Lavender. mint. crème de cassis and cedar start to develop in the glass. but what is most remarkable about the 2016 is its total sense of harmony. There is natural tension. a sort of push and pull. between the wine's intense fruit and structural underpinnings that makes the 2016 a marvel to taste and contemplate. It was positively stunning in two separate tastings. Technical Director Frédéric Faye and his team made an epic Figeac in 2016.

96 Sucklingpunkte für den Chateau Figeac 2016 Saint EmilionVerkostungsbericht vom 03. Februar 2019:

This is a very linear and driven Figeac with smooth and fine tannins. Full-bodied. yet compact and reserved. Blackberry. chocolate and hazelnut flavors. Direct and structured. A blend of 38 per cent cabernet sauvignon. 36 per cent merlot. and 26 per cent cabernet franc. Better after 2024.

Chateau Canon 2016 mit 98+ Punkten bei Robert ParkerLisa Perrotti Brown 30. November 2018

Composed of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in 70% new French barriques. the 2016 Canon is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. and—WOW—it opens with the most stunning perfume of violets. red roses and kirsch. giving way to a core of black cherry preserves. chocolate box. licorice. warm plums and Chinese five spice plus an earthy waft of underbrush. Medium to full-bodied. the palate is completely filled with expressive. perfumed black berry layers accented by lively red fruits and exotic spices. supported by impressively fine-grained tannins and fantastic tension. finishing very long with jaw-dropping energy. Tasted three times. I had one opportunity to taste the 2015 and 2016 Canon side by side. While I love the bold. rich. seductive nature of the 2015. this 2016 kicks it up a notch in terms of polish. precision. depth and persistence. Most notably. the superbly ripe. exquisitely fine-grained tannins on this 2016 bring to the table a whole other level of sophistication. Bravo!

97 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Canon 2016 Saint EmilionNeal Martin Verkostungsnotiz aus Januar 2019:

The 2016 Canon has the unenviable task of following the astonishing 2015. and it does a damn good job. even if it doesn’t reach the same ethereal heights. There is a pleasing strictness and poise on the nose; this is less immediate than the 2015. yet intellectual. a Canon that expresses its terroir rather than tons of fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. a fine bead of acidity. a smooth texture and a slightly savory but persistent finish. which feels a little plusher than the 2015. implying that this might drink a little earlier. But there is unquestionably immense breeding locked into this rejuvenated Saint-Émilion. which is now firmly ensconced among the top-flight Right Banks.

97 Sucklingpunkte für den Chateau Canon 2016 Saint EmilionJames Suckling im Februar 2019:

Complex aromas of blackberries. iodine. oyster shell and wet earth. Ever so perfumed. Full-bodied. yet reserved and tight with very silky tannins that are energized and minerally. Takes off at the end. The freshness lifts it. Try after 2024.

Chateau Angelus 2016 Saint Emilion
98 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Angelus 2016Antonio Galloni Januar 2019:

The 2016 Angélus is a total stunner. Despite its late bottling in September 2018. the 2016 is simply magnificent. Soaring aromatics and layers of bright. vibrant fruit are two of the main signatures in the 2016. The tannins. so often hard in young Angélus. are almost impossibly refined. Pomegranate. blood orange. raspberry jam. wild flowers and mocha are some of the many notes that race through the 2016. All the elements fall into place in a memorable. exquisite Saint-Émilion that is clearly one of the wines of the year. Don't miss it!

100 Sucklingpunkte für den Chateau Angelus 2016 Saint EmilionJames Suckling Februar 2019:

Subtle and profound aromas of blackberries. wet earth and sweet tobacco. Hints of spice. too. Full-bodied and so deep. It’s incredibly vertical and long. Just like looking down a well. Firm and powerful tannins. yet polished and balanced. Goes on for minutes. One of the greatest ever. Try after 2025.

The 2016 Angélus is composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. aged 18 to 22 months in new barrels and foudres. Deep garnet-purple colored. it drifts effortlessly out of the glass with sensuous notes of lavender. candied violets. garrigue. Ceylon tea and iron ore with a core of warm black cherries. mulberries. ripe plums and aniseed plus wafts of cedar chest and cloves. Medium to full-bodied. the perfumed fruit whispers of great intensity and depth. with the vivacious fruit well knit into the plush. seductive frame of velvety tannins and seamless freshness. finishing long and mineral laced. Still very tightly wound with amazing tension at this stage. it truly needs a good 6-8 more years in bottle to deliver the fully expressed layers that this soft-spoken. profound beauty promises

Chateau Montrose 2014 mit 96 Punkten bei Parkerfür den Chateau Montrose 2014 | Neal Martin März 2017:

Tasted twice in Bordeaux in the early part of 2017. the 2014 Montrose replicated its showing at the property as part of the vertical in September 2016. It has that exquisite blackberry. cedar and blood orange scented nose that feels so effervescent even at this early stage. The palate is beautifully balanced with crisp. tensile black fruit. filigree tannin. perhaps in recent months developing a little more spiciness on the finish. It is just a beautiful. regal and complete Montrose that will give decades of drinking pleasure. Tasted February 2017.

Tasted at the château. the 2014 Montrose builds on the promise it showed in barrel with gorgeous blackberry. raspberry. cedar and orange sorbet scents that are extremely pure and refined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. very precise acidity and layers of crisp black fruit laced with vanilla from the new oak at the moment. That will be subsumed in time. What you have here is a very precise. multi-layered. almost sensual Montrose that is going to delight many for years to come. This is highly recommended—one of the finest Left Bank wines this vintage. Tasted September 2016.

Easily the greatest example from this château that I've tasted, the 2018 Château Calon Ségur checks in as 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot aged 20 months in new French oak.

With full-bodied richness, a layered, multi-dimensional texture, gorgeous tannins, and one seriously long finish, it hits that palate with 15% alcohol, yet you wouldn't know it by tasting it, and the wine is perfectly balanced, has incredible purity of fruit, and stays fresh and lively, with a clean finish.
