GiftTree’s Newest Luxury Wine Addition: Mouton Rothschild

GiftTree’s Newest Luxury Wine Addition: Mouton Rothschild

I worked at a fabulous restaurant in Williamsburg, Virginia called The Trellis when I was in college. They taught me about great wine and farm to table ingredients; truly an experience that opened my eyes to a whole culinary world. But that’s not the story for this blog post. The story starts when I graduated. The leadership of the restaurant were kind enough to give me a bottle of 1982 Mouton Rothschild as a going away gift. I knew enough to know it would be much better if I waited 5 years to enjoy the wine when I came back for my college reunion. I tucked the bottle into a wine locker in the ironically named “vault room” awaiting my glorious return to pop the cork. I was like Pavlov’s dog salivating for 5 years waiting to enjoy the best bottle of wine of my life. Well, the reunion came in 1990. My party of 6 exuberant oenophiles arrived for dinner only to find that managers had changed and somewhere along the line they had sold my bottle of wine. I’m still scarred by loss of that great bottle of wine. But this scar tissue has healed well as I’ve gotten to enjoy a few Moutons through the years. Only once, did I get to try an ‘82 and it was one of the most elegant wines to ever cross my palate. The ’95 and 2000 were also extraordinary wines. Mouton Rothschild is fine art, fine culture and the epitome of luxury. From its beginning as a potential folly for the wealthy financier Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild in 1853, the...
