Lot #72. Mouton Rothschild 1955

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 RP.
"Tasted 3 times with consistent notes. The 1955 should be a vintage to buy at auction as I suspect the price is more reasonable than what such acclaimed vintages as 1959 and 1961 fetch. The color reveals no amber or rust, only a slight lightening of intensity at the edge. The nose offers up that explosive Mouton perfume of mint, leather, cassis, black olives, and lead pencil. In the mouth, there is stunning concentration, magnificent extraction of fruit, and plenty of tannin in the long finish. The wine still tastes remarkably young and could easily last another 20-30 years. Amazing." Wine Advocate #95, Oct 1994
Provenance: The Alton Cellar
Notes: Upper mid shoulder, very lightly scuffed, partially exposing top of cork, very lightly scuffed, very lightly damp stained, very lightly mold stained, very lightly bin soiled label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,300
