2020 PETIT MOUTON Pauillac Château Mouton Rothschild

2020 PETIT MOUTON Pauillac Château Mouton Rothschild

The fruit has great depth and power but delivered in a controlled, beautifully pure and resonant 13.1% alcohol framework. It is such a melodic and tender wine on the surface, but underneath there is great depth and genuine personality. In fact, I haven’t recognised this amount of character in this wine before and it seems that LPM is developing its own distinct signature and this is thoroughly fascinating. With such crystalline purity and freshness, it is amazing that the fruit has enough persistence and flavour to swallow the oak without any issue whatsoever. Layered and refined, this is a triumph for the Mouton family in 2020. Rating: 18+ Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (May 2021)

The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, grippier than the nose suggests. An underlying saline element lends freshness on a firm finish that does not outstay its welcome, but encourages another sip. This is a fine Deuxième Vin.

Pichon Comtesse seems to be improving on its already strong form. You could argue that having the 2009 at £750/6 with 97 points doesn't reflect as positively, but these perfect ratings always move market and if the 2020 can keep it up, then it will be a must buy. At the end of the day, a 100 point wine, especially with this sort of heritage, for just over £100 a bottle, is incredibly fair when considered within the context of the global wine market.L&S (May 2021)
