A Toast to History and Art

The year 2004 marked the centenary of the Entente Cordiale, a diplomatic agreement that strengthened ties between Great Britain and France. Seeking a unique way to commemorate this event, Chateau Mouton Rothschild entrusted the label design to a renowned figure: King Charles III, then Prince Charles, known for his passion for art and his deep appreciation for French culture.

King Charles chose to portray a serene French landscape. With vibrant washes of watercolours, he captured the essence of Pauillac – rolling hills bathed in sunlight, verdant vineyards stretching towards the horizon, and a peaceful river meandering through the countryside. Each stroke exudes a sense of tranquillity and harmony.

Vintage/Vineyard Notes:

    • Exceptional 2004 vintage: characterized by a long, warm summer and dry, sunny autumn, resulting in ripe, high-quality grapes.
    • Prime Pauillac location: deep gravel soils and perfect sun exposure, ideal for cultivating Cabernet Sauvignon, the dominant grape in Mouton Rothschild wines.

Winemaking:

    • Traditional methods: meticulous hand-harvesting, sorting, gentle fermentation, and aging in oak barrels for 18-24 months.
    • Classic blend: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, showcasing the unique character of the vintage and Pauillac terroir.

Critics' Reviews:

    • 18 Points - Jancis Robinson MW: "An extremely distinctive wine - almost mid Atlantic rather than Pauillac and therefore of course very winning. Very dark purple. Hidden, deep-flavoured nose. Some rather sweet notes - even ripe Merlot notes which dominate at the moment. Very smooth and flattering in texture with real polish - very supple tannins with lots of fruit on the front palate. Not nearly as dry as one would expect of a first growth Pauillac - almost a hint of Opus One in texture? No hint of oak. Very interesting and not at all severe. Drink 2015-30."
