A cold winter was followed by a mild spring which encouraged early growth of the vine.
A frost on 21 April caused considerable damage but Château Mouton Rothschild, Château d’Armailhac and Château Clerc Milon were spared thanks to their favourable situation.
The crop matured well in a fine, hot summer and the harvest began under excellent conditions.Oenological sheet
The wine has a brickish colour with an attractive, slightly orange hue.
The nose displays rather refined aromas, with subtle floral touches of jasmine and more forward roasted notes. Touches of blackcurrant and spice enhance the first nose with airing.
The palate is fresh and full, on acidulated berry fruit, with refinement and elegance on round, well-integrated tannins, as smooth as can be, leading into a rich and dense finish.
