1959 Château Mouton Rothschild Reserve de Chateau Eta 2-3 days$9,999.99
Very rare from Baron Philippe de Rothschild Barron's private stash of the best barrels from each vintage he typically drank these at the Chateau or gave them as gifts.
Parker rated the regular bottle 100 points see below: I am always blown away by the 1959 Mouton, one of the greatest Moutons made in the last thirty-five years. Every time I have this wine it is undeniable that Mouton made a richer, more persuasive wine in 1959 than in 1961. 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. This mammoth, full-bodied Mouton-Rothschild should continue to evolve for another 20-30 years. It may well be a 100-year wine! Last tasted 3/97.
