Pauillac - Premier Grand Cru Classé

   

90/100 Parker

When to drink this wine : 2019 - 2030

Tasted by Lisa Perrotti-Brown in 2019: "Notorious for not living up to the reputation of the estate or the vintage, I have to say that this 1990 Mouton Rothschild was not as bad as I expected. It was a hot, dry vintage, which can be a challenge for vines on soils as poorly draining as the deep gravel mounds that form the backbone of Mouton's vineyards. The effect of the struggling vines is apparent in the wine, which produces less density and chewier tannins (a nice length on the palate). Nevertheless, the pedigree of the terroir clearly shines through in the background."

   

Label designed by artist Francis BACON : 

- On brightly coloured, flat canvases, muscular figures stretch and contract as if reflected in a distorting mirror. They seem captive in a network of geometric lines that leave no sense of perspective. Fascinated by wine, perhaps even by drunkenness, Francis Bacon created a strange and striking choreography for the label of Mouton Rothschild 1990, while sipping his glass.

- Francis Bacon, the Dublin-born English painter (1909-1992), claimed that he had only found his style in 1945, when he produced his "Three Studies of Figures at the Foot of a Crucifixion". However, it was not until the 1980s that Francis Bacon was finally recognised as one of the greatest artists of this century, while stubbornly refusing to accept honours or be gentrified. Unclassifiable, he staged the nudity, flesh and virility of man, capturing him in a derisory solitude, twisted by the spasms of birth, agony or a mysterious malaise, navigating between classical tragedy and the malaise of contemporary life. "I've never been able to represent a smile", he used to say.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
