Lot #468. Mouton Rothschild 1959

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
I am always blown away by the 1959 Mouton, one of the greatest Moutons made in the last thirty-five years...Astonishingly young and unevolved, with a black/purple color, the wine exhibits a youthful nose of cassis, minerals, and new oak. It is exceptionally powerful and super-extracted, with the fruit supported by high levels of tannin and some lusty quantities of alcohol... Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1, Jan 1998
Notes: High shoulder, heavily corroded and scuffed capsules, heavily bin soiled, damp stained and lightly scuffed label, import tag partially covering label. Richard Lippold label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,250
