CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 2000 (OWC)
PAUILLAC. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ
DEEP GARNET COLORED WITH A TOUCH OF BRICK, THE 2000 MOUTON ROTHSCHILD (COMPOSED OF 86% CABERNET SAUVIGNON AND 14% MERLOT) BOLDLY BURSTS FROM THE GLASS WITH TANTALIZING BLACK FOREST CAKE, DRIED MULBERRIES, KIRSCH AND BLACKCURRANT PASTILLES NOTES PLUS WAFTS OF IODINE, INCENSE, POTPOURRI AND CINNAMON STICK WITH A HINT OF CIGAR BOXES. MEDIUM TO FULL-BODIED, THE PALATE PACKS IN THE MUSCULAR FRUIT, FRAMED BY FIRM, RIPE, GRAINY TANNINS AND SEAMLESS FRESHNESS, FINISHING WITH PHENOMENAL LENGTH. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY COMPLEX AND MULTIFACETED WINE, AND IT'S DRINKING DELICIOUSLY NOW. THIS SAID, I CAN’T HELP BUT FEEL THAT IT IS HOLDING SOMETHING BACK, THAT IT STILL HAS ANOTHER LAYER OF OPULENCE AND SEDUCTION TO REVEAL IN ITS TIGHT-KNIT FRUIT AND SOLID STRUCTURE. I PERSONALLY CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HOW THIS BEAUTY WILL CONTINUE TO UNFOLD OVER THE YEARS TO COME. OCTOBER 2019 DRINK: 2020-2055 WA 97+
12 BTS. PER LOT $25,000 - $30,000

Fine Wine and Spirits
Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
