2014 Mouton Rothschild from Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux

The esteemed 2014 Mouton Rothschild marks a vintage that rises defiantly above the challenges posed by the climatic rollercoaster of Bordeaux's 2014 growing season. Championed by late ripening conditions that delivered a reprieve from the earlier threats of dampness, this vintage bears the hallmarks of Chateau Mouton Rothschild's indefatigable dedication to excellence, even in less than ideal years.


A Vintage of Tenacity and Triumph

While the year unfurled with a shaky start, an Indian summer swooped in to salvage the grapes’ magnificence. The prolonged warmth and sunshine gifted the 2014 Mouton Rothschild with an unexpected poise and a sumptuous ripeness that belies the vintage's initial prognosis. Insightful investors recognize this turnaround as a testament not just to nature's grace, but to the perspicacious vineyard management and astute selection practices at Chateau Mouton Rothschild.


A Palate Painted with Precision

The palate reveals a mélange of lush blackberry and cassis notes intertwined with the subtlest hints of cedar and vanilla imparted by its judicious sojourn in oak. Compelling accents of graphite lend an assertive structure that promises further complexity with ageing. One would be remiss not to appreciate how these elements coalesce into a harmonious expression that is quintessentially Pauillac.

This wine elegantly straddles robustness and finesse, embodying a character that could become a cornerstone for diversifying fine wine portfolios. The investment potential of this lesser-celebrated vintage lies in its exemplary performance under constraints—a narrative that connoisseurs find irresistibly compelling.


Summation: A Collector’s Consideration

In summary, the 2014 Mouton Rothschild from Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a shining beacon of resilience within a challenging Bordelais tableau. It presents as not only an intellectual delight for those who seek pleasure in undoubted quality tempered by adversity but as an intriguing prospect for investors who appreciate the nuances brought forth by such distinct vintages. It remains one of the more sophisticated narratives in your procurement chronicles—a tale to savour both in glass and portfolio alike.

The 2014 Mouton-Rothschild was closed at first when I tasted the wine in bottle with winemaker Philippe Dhalluin. But as it transpires, this First Growth is just toying with you. Initially quite understated, it responds to aeration like a young child peeking from around a corner and then running out, waving its hands. It suddenly hits you with gorgeous black cherries, bilberry, cedar and wilted rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry. This is utterly seductive: a wine without a hair out of place. It is not as powerful or as complex as the 2015 Mouton-Rothschild, yet the precision and focus here is beguiling. It will require five to seven years to absorb the 100% new oak, then it will be an utterly delicious and to use a term employed at en primeur, "cerebral" First Growth that is destined to give two or three decades of pleasure.
