This is a mixed case of 2002 vintage wines from the three Bordeaux wine estates owned by the Rothschild family. The chateaux are the three northmost estates in Pauillac.
The centrepiece of the case is the 2002 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, featuring the artwork of Ilya Kabakov; a tunnel of angel's wings to another world.
Following the Premier Cru wine, are two Fifth Growth chateaux; Chateau Clerc Milon and Chateau d'Armailhac, acquired by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1970 and 1934 respectively.
2002 Chateau Mouton Rothschild (18.5/20)
"Deep crimson. Firm, strongly cassis nose. Very voluptuous texture. Appetising and beautifully balanced. Obviously Médoc. Dried out a little on the end but the contrast between the flesh of this wine and skinniness of the Margaux tasted immediately beforehand could not have been more marked. It was still fresh and clean 24 hours afterwards but had lost a little density." (Tasted on 04/11/2012)
2002 Chateau Clerc Milon (16.5/20)
"A bit sweet and more suppressed than the other wines from the Mouton stable, d'Armailhac and Petit Mouton. Just slightly more tarty. Tarry. Not as ambitious as the first two in this flight, but the wine has an attractive dry finish." (Tasted on 13/20/2009)
2002 Chateau d'Armailhac (17/20)
"Really rich and dense and solid. Racy, with great balance and punch. Dry finish." (Tasted on 13/10/2009)
