Wine of the moment

Matching jumper

When tasting one of the most famous wines in the world, Chateau Mouton Rothschild, it is important to make sure your jumper matches the label. By the way, the artist was Georg Baselitz, appropriately a German, as 1989 was of course the year in which the wall fell between East and West Germany. This was one of a trio of great vintages at the end of the Eighties and, despite its three decades plus of ageing, it was tasting remarkably fresh. A true Pauillac power package, with a complex bouquet of cedarwood, pencil shavings, blood and dark red fruits. Classic and very slightly austere with bags of character. A true treat.
