Dear Wine Lover,
Mouton Rothschilds new artistic collaboration for the 2015 vintage has finally been revealed! Designed by one of the most influential contemporary European artists: GERHARD RICHTER! And price has already moved up to CHF 545.00 + VAT this week due to the increasing worldwide request! A couple of weeks ago the price was only at CHF 515.00 + VAT. I would need to know ASAP if you are interested, as I can only guarantee this price for a few days. This is a real bargain in my opinion.
Beyond the exceptional quality of the 2015 vintage and the worldwide reputation of the German artist Gerhard Richter, this bottle of Château Mouton Rothschild will now be signed by Philippe Sereys de Rothschild on behalf of the three family owners. After Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Baron Philippe de Rothschild before her, this new signature reflects the continuity of the family history.
Just for your information, here are some other interesting comments on Mouton 2015:

Robert Parker 97-99 Points: The 2015 Mouton-Rothschild is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc matured entirely in new oak, as usual. This represents a relatively high percentage of Merlot simply because, as winemaker Philippe Dhalluin told me, that quality was so good. I afforded my sample four to five minutes to open as it was a little reduced at first, but eventually it reveals a gorgeous, extraordinarily intense bouquet of blackberry, cassis, incense and cold slate aromas. In some ways it reminds me of Latour as much as Mouton Rothschild. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, perfectly pitched acidity, wonderful tension and impressive length. There is a strong graphite theme running through from start to finish that is little grainy and so it will require preferably a decade in cellar. But what freshness and panache here, a classic Mouton-Rothschild that will live for 50 or 60 years, not a million miles away from say, the 1986 or 2010. Expect this to settle at the top of my banded score once in bottle.
