Mouton 1995


There are so many things to say about Mouton Rothschild that we would need to write a book to even attempt to comprehensively examine this historic Château. Today, we focus on the 1995 vintage in which Robert Parker said:

"Mouton did indeed hit the bull's eye in 1995, making the greatest wine produced at this estate since the legendary duo of 1982 and 1986" (Robert Parker). 

What was 1995 like in Bordeaux? In short, a very good vintage, especially considering the four previous years. After a hot summer that was said to resemble that of 1990, the red wines produced were supple, harmonious and extremely high quality. It was the largest yield they had seen in the region since 1986 and in density, the wines from 1995 are often compared to them. 

Our pricing on these pristine OWC's is the best in the country as the next lowest price is nearly $8,000! We have perfect provenance and FOUR cases available. 




“A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 19% Merlot, it reveals an opaque purple color, and reluctant aromas of cassis, truffles, coffee, licorice, and spice. In the mouth, the wine is "great stuff," with superb density, a full-bodied personality, rich mid-palate, and a layered, profound finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. There is outstanding purity and high tannin, but my instincts suggest this wine is lower in acidity and slightly fleshier than the brawnier, bigger 1996. Both are great efforts from Mouton-Rothschild.” 97, Decanter


“Still remarkably dark, intense and youthful in appearance, this Mouton shows more flamboyant characters on the nose than other vintages, with spices, cigar-box and blackcurrant leaf all to the fore. Rich, dense and fleshy palate with plenty of stuffing for further ageing. An impressive Mouton which lives up to the ‘star’ billing for the 1995 vintage with nearly all of the components in great balance.” 95, Robert Parker
