Liv-ex survey: ‘best’ wines of Bordeaux 2018

6: Mouton Rothschild

Antonio Galloni: 94-97
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 97-99+
Julia Harding MW: 18

Mouton has been snapping at the heels of Lafite for the last five years or so, its star rising in conjunction with ever more impressive wines and demand in the secondary market.

Pauillac as a whole has produced some A* wines in 2018 and Mouton is right in among them with a grand vin Colin Hay described as a “plunge pool of potential perfection”.

But, this year, Lafite seems to have stayed just one short step ahead.
