The best wines of Bordeaux 2017

Mouton Rothschild

2016 release price: €420
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 97-99
Julia Harding MW: 18
James Suckling: 97-98
Neal Martin: 94-96

Possibly the first growth to grown in stature the most in recent years and the one presenting the most serious challenge to Lafite’s supremacy.

As mentioned previously, Martin thinks Lafite the best first growth in 2017 and the Mouton lacking some of the “panache” of its 2016 incarnation, though Julia Harding MW seems rather more taken with the ‘other Rothschild’ property and Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW and James Suckling scored them the same so presumably don’t think there’s much in it.
