Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1973
9.5 stars
26 Feb 2021

This was the year that Mouton Rothschild got promoted from 2nd growth to 1st growth, and thus the famous motto from Mouton Rothschild; “First I am. Second I used to be. Mouton does not change.” To celebrate their escalation to the top class, they invited Pablo Picasso to draw their yearly-changing label. Bear in mind 1973 was a relatively weak vintage, I never had anything impressive except for Cheval Blanc 73 which was easy to drink but with some green stalky notes. After more than 25 years of drinking, I finally fill the void of the missing vintage of Mouton Rothschild 1973. It did extremely well, did not feel like a wine with Cabernet Sauvignon denominated, and unlike Cheval Blanc, there wasn’t any green stalky note. Nose was so seductive, sexy and high class. Content was silky smooth, with totally resolved tannins and definitively the best window to drink right now. Wine was with relatively high acidity and not much complexity, however, it more than made up with it’s hedonistic and seductive taste.
