About blend, 2015 Mouton-Rothschild is made from 82% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% of Merlot and 2% of Cabernet Franc. This Pauillac has an attractive, deep and dark colour with a purple tint. The refined and elegant nose reveals fruity wild blackberry and bilberry aromas. Notes of toast, liquorice and blond tobacco then emerge to fill out a rich and complex range of aromas. The fresh, full-bodied and slightly saline attack shows great intensity, opening on smooth and creamy tannins which enfold a silky texture lifted by a touch of minerality. The impression on the palate is very full, rich in ripe fruit and peppery spice flavours. An exceptionally long finish concludes a remarkably balanced wine.
