1983 BARON PHILIPPE DE ROTHSCHILD

87 pointsJean-Marc Quarin

Dark red medium intensity with a little old wood. Strawberry jam with notes of cigar, raspberry. On the finish, at the second sip, it still concedes a simple tannin, always with a dry tendency.

wine specsAbout the Domain

Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired the château in 1853, but the legend of Mouton did not really begin until 1922 with Baron Philippe de Rothschild. At the age of 21, full of ambition and original ideas, he decided to devote his life to forging the wine’s identity and its international reputation, which, from the very beginning also had an effect on the image of Bordeaux’s wines as a whole. In 1924, faced with the numerous irregular practices of Bordeaux’s wine merchants, he inaugurated the bottled at the château guarantee. In 1945, to celebrate the Liberation, a V for victory crowned the label for that vintage, an initiative which marked the beginning of a series of original works created each year for the label by a famous artist. In 1973, even though no change had ever been made to the 1855 classification, Baron Philippe obtained – not without some difficulty – a revision that officially made Mouton one of Bordeaux’s elite Premier Grands Crus Classés. On his death in 1998, his daughter Philippine took over the reins, assisted by an unparalleled technical team, and successfully continued her father’s projects until her death in 2014. Today, her three children, Camille Sereys de Rothschild, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild run the estate together.

wine specsOur Thoughts

The last of the trio of wines produced by Baron Philippe de Rothschild. Again, this wine really possess the character of Mouton 83 as well, except that it ages faster than the other 2. However, it does not lose out to Mouton 83 or Clerc Milon 83 very much, the style of the 3 wines are rather similar, so if u want to not splurge on a Mouton 83, get a clone like this bottle, you will be satisfied too.
