2019 Mouton Rothschild "Aile d'Argent" Bordeaux Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1480751 97-98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very exotic Aile d’Argent with dried-mango, fresh-pineapple, and sliced-lemon aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very ripe, yet it’s framed by bright acidity. Tangy and vivid with a long, intense finish. Exciting. Contrastive. 38% semillon and the rest sauvignon blanc and gris. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark You just know that Aile d'Argent is going to suit a vintage like this, where the warmth of the summer accentuates the rich apricot, white pear and juicy nectarine flavours of the wine. This tiny drop of Muscadelle gives lift and florality to the finish, and overall there is width, depth and texture aplenty, with a fabulous lick of salinity on the finish. Does a great job of walking the tightrope - and the team under Philippe Dhalluin are not afraid of underlining the texture of the wine, giving 17% of the production some malolactic fermentation, one of the rare Bordeaux whites to do so. Harvest September 7 to 11. (JA) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Mouton's white is a blend this year of 61% Sauvignon Blanc, 38% Semillon and 1% Muscadelle, harvested from the 5th to the 11th of September. This 2019 Aile d'Argent sails of of the glass with beguiling scents of pink grapefruit, lemon drops, orange blossoms and candied ginger with hints of jasmine, lime cordial and coriander seed. The medium-bodied palate reveals compelling poise and sophistication, with a racy line of freshness lifting the citrus and spice layers to a long, opulent finish. Very impressive!

92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark This estate makes a terrific white. The 2019 Château Mouton Rothschild Aile D'Argent Blanc (61% Sauvignon, 38% Semillon, and 1% Muscadelle) offers an exotic bouquet of mandarin oranges, white peach, and honeyed flowers as well as a medium-bodied, soft, nicely textured style on the palate. It shows bright acidity on the finish and is going to be outstanding. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Aile d'Argent, Mouton Rothschild's white is laced with hints of pineapple, mint, white flowers, apple and lemon confit. An exotic note from the Muscadelle add character. In 2019, Aile d'Argent is distinguished by its energy, even with a touch of malolactic fermentation, and a bit more restraint than in the past, all huge positives. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

PLEASE NOTE: 2019 Bordeaux Futures are being offered without any added tariffs. If there are applicable tariffs at the time the wines are imported in 2022, we will contact you with the option to pay tariffs to have the wine delivered, or cancel the order with no penalty. 90-92 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2019 Aile d'Argent was picked 5-11 September, early in order to lock in the freshness and underwent partial malolactic fermentation. It is armed with an attractive bouquet of red apples, yellow plum and honeysuckle scents that gently waft from the glass. A touch of orange pith develops in the background with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a brisk, sharp opening, moderate weight, good tension with a touch of bitter lemon neatly counterbalancing the richness, whilst a potent spicy stem ginger note rounds things off nicely."
