Tua Rita Redigaffi 2012

Mouton Rothschild 2005

£3,600 per 12x75cl case



Previous peak price was in June 2011 when this vintage was trading at £5,850.00 per case.



First Growth market certainly represents good value given the quality of the wines and recent price correction.



Mouton 2000 96 points trades at £11,200 per case.



96+ pts from Parker from arguably one of the three top vintages alongside 2009 & 2010.



2005 vintage set to re-score by Parker next year, a lot of commentators feel that many wines could be upgraded.



5 Year Target Price: £6,000 / 12 (£500 per bottle)



66.67% Growth Projection



In 5 years, the 2005 vintage will be 14 years old – the same age currently as the 2000 – which is worth c. £1,000 per bottle.



Top performing First growth estate in 2014 and as this area of the market picks up, we expect the well-received brand output to be leading the resurgence.




‘Tasted blind againstits peers, this brilliant Mouton-Rothschild

trumped both Latour and Lafite!’

Neil Martin – Wine Advocate

Mouton Rothschild 2005 Liv-ex Performance 2010 - 2014


As the graph above quite clearly demonstrates the current position of theMouton 2005 represents very strong investment potential. With demand firmly back in favour for First Growth wines we would expect the price to return to the level we saw in 2011 and gradually continue in line with older back vintages as supply diminishes further.

Recent auction results also confirm our sentiment and confidence in Mouton as a brand with many lots far outstripping their pre-auction estimates. As the table below demonstrates Mouton Rothschild is still a highly desirable brand amongst consumers and collectors alike, and will undoubtedly continue to provide investors with a stable return over the medium to long term.


Tasting Notes

The 2005 Mouton Rothschild will have to take a back seat to the prodigious 2006, but administrator Philippe Dalhuin deserves considerable credit for pushing Mouton to higher quality levels over recent years. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot, the dark purple-hued 2005 exhibits a restrained but promising nose of cedar, tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, and toasty oak. Full-bodied, tannic, and extremely backward, with the vintage’s tell-tale acidity, it appears to be even more closed in the bottle than it was from barrel. It does possess a long finish and multilayered mouthfeel. This is an undeniably outstanding, yet restrained, shy wine for a Mouton Rothschild. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040+

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (176), April 2008

Score: 96 pts



Tasted blind against its peers, this brilliant Mouton-Rothschild trumped both Latour and Lafite! If it lacked the same level of breeding out of barrel, then it sure as hell is making up for its now. The nose is incredibly ripe and is perhaps more accessible than those aforementioned Pauillacs. Dark cherries, kirsch, cedar and some lovely vanillary new oak – sleek and sophisticated. Great definition. The palate has a viscous entry, fat round tannins, voluptuous, generous and sensuous. Great depth with blackberry, raspberry, a touch of black olive tapenade. Sensuous, feminine finish. Sublime. Drink 2017-2040+ Tasted January 2009.

The Great Vintages of Mouton Rothschild

Current Market Value per 12x75cl

Price difference to 2005



















The table above is designed to show the price disparity between the 2005 vintage and other ‘great vintages’ from Mouton Rothschild. The 2005 vintage is widely regarded as one of the top 5 vintages from Bordeaux in recent times, and with Parkers 10 year retrospective looming the Mouton is highly tipped to have improved since its last official tasting.
