Producer: Château Mouton Rothschild, one of the five First Growths of Bordeaux, needs no introduction. Its iconic label and bold character have established it as a legend in the realm of fine wine.

Vineyard: Nestled on the "Plateau de Mouton," the estate's vineyard boasts prime gravelly soil and meticulous planting. Cabernet Sauvignon thrives here, forming the backbone of the blend (81%), complemented by Merlot (15%), Cabernet Franc (3%), and Petit Verdot (1%). The specific proportions vary with each vintage, showcasing the unique personality of each year.

Vintage: The 2002, blessed by warmer-than-average weather and an exceptional Indian summer, reveals exceptional ripeness and concentration.

Tasting notes: A lovely, clear and glittering ruby red of remarkable intensity, the wine has a nose that opens on generous animal notes then goes on to develop fruit aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant, combining elegant oak with a touch of minerality. The attack is dense and rich, on still-firm, refined and very well-rounded tannins. The mid-palate reveals a powerful structure and beautiful balance between fruit and oak, displaying perfect harmony between notes of toast, mocha, blackcurrant and cherry liqueur, and leading into a long and stylish finish.

Label Art: Ilya Kabakov's "Okho" for Château Mouton Rothschild 2002 masterfully marries graphic art and layered perspectives. Through a "window" in the bottle, a vortex of endless wings ushers us towards dreams and bliss, a captivating allegory for the enchanting power of this exceptional wine.
