Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée Aile d'Argent 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Jet black in colour, ripe chocolate berry fruit flavours, fine concentration with excellent tannins and an exciting spicy finish.

Viña Almaviva:
In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.

Deep purple colour. The nose is very impressive! Truffles, coffee and liquorice, it was all over... On the palate, even more impressive with great finesse and yet power. Plenty of black and red berries, more truffles and a rich texture. The wine is full bodied and gives a beautiful long length. Can be enjoyed already, but will go for quite some time! A great wine!

    The evolution of this wine will be fascinating to follow. I say that because the wine, while dark ruby/purple in color, is not as opaque as the 1986 and 1982 were and still are. However, if one were to evaluate the bouquet on a 50-100 point scale, it would probably merit a 96 or 97. Perfumed with oriental spices, soy sauce, leather, toasty oak, mocha, and gobs of blackcurrants, the aromas are amazingly developed for such a young wine. In the mouth, however, despite what is undoubtedly excellent concentration, the wine appears to lack the weight and depth one anticipates in a top vintage such as 1989. Moreover, the finish is surprisingly brisk given the great up-front fragrance. This is undoubtedly an outstanding Mouton, comparable stylistically to the ready-to-drink 1985 rather than the compellingly perfect wines produced in 1986 and 1982. It should be drinkable early and I suspect most admirers of the flashy, dramatic style of wine made at Mouton will want to consume it between 1993 and 2010. Tasted seven times. Consistent notes.

    Dark purple black in color. Complex aromas of mineral, licorice, lead pencil and blackberry follow through to a full body, with ultrafine tannins and a caressing, pretty finish. Has a lovely texture. Shows elegance and refinement. Best after 2012.

    Made from low yields of 28 hectoliters per hectar, this profound blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot possesses a finished pH of 3.8, alcohol of 12.9% (nearly identical to Lafite Rothschild in that sense), and 3.5 total acidity (much higher than the other first growths). The 2003 is similar in style to Mouton's 1982, but softer and more pliable than that wine was at the same age. The Cabernet Sauvignon harvest began on the same day it did in both 1982 and 1947... an interesting coincidence. Black/purple-colored to the rim, with a gorgeous nose of expresso roast intermixed with classic Mouton creme de cassis liqueur-like notes, its powerful, unctuous flavors cascade over the palate revealing tremendous intensity as well as strong tannin. If my instincts are correct, it is the ripest, most flamboyant Mouton-Rothschild since the 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2035.

    This beautifully made wine could be considered a sleeper of the vintage. The wine boasts a dark purple color, followed by a sweet, pain grilleacute;, roasted nut, and cassis-scented bouquet that is just beginning to open. In the mouth, the wine may not possess the body and volume of a vintage such as 1990 or 1989, but there is more richness of fruit, a sweet, ripe, pureness to the wine, as well as medium body and outstanding balance. This moderately tannic, well-focused, surprisingly rich 1993 is capable of 15ndash;20 years of evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2015.

    One of the stars in every vintage, the '89 Mouton defines class and concentration. An exciting wine, with thick, chewy cassis, mint and berry flavors, full, silky tannins and great harmony. Try after 2000.

    On the surface, Mouton is often less complicated than the other firsts. Its glamorous oak scent and flashy cassis concentration are easily matched by several ambitious second-growth Pauillacs. The greatness of Mouton lies deeper, and it shows most prominently in a Cabernet vintage like rsquo;96. The vines stand in a deep sea of small stones, a gravel plateau as difficult to walk upon as a sand dune. Cabernet loves these stones and grows grapes that come about as close to the essential flavor of the variety as seems possible. Mouton is a pure, perfectly articulates Cabernet as a Shaker chair is a pure, essential and perfect chair.
