The Rothchilds has been associated as one of the finest wine makers of the world. Recently i got my hands on these babies. =)
(L) Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1999
Tasting note: Quote Wine spectator "Complex aromas of Blackberries, Tobacco, Spices and Black licorice are alluring in this full bodied claret, with solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Long, Caressing finish, Superfine, well structured."
(R) Mouton Rothschild 1986
Tasting Note: Quote Stephen Tanzer "Good medium ruby. Currant, currant leaf, cedar and dusty oak on the nose. Tightly wound and classic, with favulous acids contributing to its powerful spine. Wonderfully pure and intense, with great verve and grip"
Normally i'll ignore those tasting notes, because its sounded too foreign to me. I preferred the Mouton over Lafite, but this probably has to do with the year it was produce, i was told that the year 1986 Mouton should best be drank during year 2012, it's too bad i could not wait.
Happy camper of the day.
