Vega Sicilia Unico 2000 vs. Mouton Rothschild 2002

Vega Sicilia Unico 2000 vs. Mouton Rothschild 2002

Battle of the bulge

In sunny "Palma de Mallorca”, we tested 2 outstanding wines heads up. ## The Vega Sicilia Unico 2000 versus the Mouton Rothschild 2002. Both where magnum sized!


To conclude: Both score 9/10 points, no way to tell which is the winner. Both wines are almost perfect in balance, very well concentrated, but yet so elegant. It’s really a tsunami of silk and fruit. The finish longs for more than 60 seconds!


To sum it all up: The difference is what your preference is: The power, portrayed in its most elegant way for the Vega Sicilia Unico 2000 or the more silky and smooth terroir in the “Pauillac” for the Mouton Rothschild 2000.
It’s hard to choose anyways… we couldn't. BOW 9
