Incredible iodine, oyster, currants, peat and cedar. Yet subtle. Full body, chewy yet polished tannins and great depth and complexity on the finish. I love the spice and blueberry character on the finish. Vibrant. A sexy...

The grilled character on the opening beats is more campfire than gunsmoke, just a little warmer and more evident than with the Lafite, meaning both estates are very much staying true to their character. Here you get waves...

Unquestionably one of the great wines in the vintage, the 2014 Mouton-Rothschild offers more flamboyance, depth, and texture than just about every other release out there. Crème de cassis, violets, lead pencil, and ample...

The Wine Independent, March 2024

The 2014 Mouton Rothschild is deep garnet-brick in color. Notes of creme de cassis, cigar box, and forest floor open out to nuances of crushed rocks, new leather, and truffles. The medium-bodied palate delivers muscular...

Vinous, March 2024

The 2014 Mouton-Rothschild is one of the strongest wines from the First Growth in that decade when Philippe Dhalluin nudged quality higher. It has a showstopping bouquet with black fruit laced with freshly rolled tobacco...

TheWineCellarInsider.com, November 2022

Youthful, but developing well. This full-bodied, precocious wine offers a solid, chewy core of Asian spiced, black and red currants, blackberries, smoke, espresso, cedar, and cigar box. There is a depth of flavor and...

Wine Enthusiast, April 2017

The label of this vintage is designed by David Hockney in memory of Philippine de Rothschild. It is a powerful wine in the rich style of Mouton with strong black-currant fruits from 81% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is dense and...

Wine Spectator, May 2017

Sleek and racy in feel, with a sanguine edge leading the way, backed by gently mulled currant and blackberry fruit. Lovely tobacco and iron notes thread through the finish, though the fruit easily has the upper hand...

Decanter, April 2015

Explosively floral nose – the usual exotic Mouton fruit underlined by 16% of ripe Merlot. The classic ‘iron fist in a velvet glove’, with ripe tannins and marvellous structure. Its true qualities will need time to...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2017

The 2014 Mouton-Rothschild was closed at first when I tasted the wine in bottle with winemaker Philippe Dhalluin. But as it transpires, this First Growth is just toying with you. Initially quite understated, it responds...

### 2014 Mouton-Rothschild [Bordeaux Blend] 750

![2014 Mouton-Rothschild](https://www.jjbuckley.com/permalink/bottle/image/2014-201-750)

The 2014 Mouton-Rothschild is a Bordeaux blend hailing from the celebrated Pauillac region in Bordeaux, France. This First Growth wine, produced by Mouton-Rothschild, has garnered high praise across the board from professional reviewers, emphasizing its complexity, structure, and aging potential.

The wine's rich profile is largely attributed to its composition, featuring 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, which provides its strong black-currant fruits. With an alcohol content of 13.0%, this red wine, sealed with a cork closure, is poised for long-term aging.

Wine Spectator awarded the wine a score of 96, describing it as "sleek and racy in feel, with a sanguine edge leading the way, backed by gently mulled currant and blackberry fruit." They highlight its "lovely tobacco and iron notes" and suggest that the wine is best enjoyed from 2025 through 2045.

Wine Enthusiast also rated the wine 96, noting its powerful style and density. Roger Voss comments on its readiness to age and advises drinking it from 2026 onwards. The label, designed by David Hockney, adds a sentimental touch in memory of Philippine de Rothschild.

Vinous' Neal Martin praised the wine with a score of 97, calling it "one of the strongest wines from the First Growth in that decade." He mentions its "showstopping bouquet" and "wonderful delineation and focus," highlighting its elegance and subtle complexity.

James Suckling gave a near-perfect score of 99, describing it as "incredible" with flavors of "iodine, oyster, currants, peat and cedar." He appreciates its "full body, chewy yet polished tannins," and suggests trying it from 2022.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate also lauded the wine with a 95, noting its initial closed nature that blossoms with aeration into a "silky smooth" and "utterly seductive" profile. Neal Martin suggests it requires five to seven years to mature fully.

Jeb Dunnuck echoed these sentiments with a 97 rating, praising its "flamboyance, depth, and texture," and suggesting it can be enjoyed over the next three to four decades.

Decanter awarded the wine 95 points, describing it as having an "explosively floral nose" and noting its "ripe tannins and marvellous structure."

Jeff Leve from TheWineCellarInsider.com gave it 96 points, commending its "solid, chewy core" and layers of "juicy, fresh currants."

Jane Anson rated it 98, appreciating its "waves of peony and rose petals" and its "expansive and complex" nature.

The Wine Independent also awarded it 97 points, noting its "muscular black fruits" and "seamless freshness."

Overall, the 2014 Mouton-Rothschild is a standout vintage that promises to provide decades of enjoyment for those patient enough to let it mature.
