In a rainy harvest, there are the people who panic and pick while the fruit is still diluted, and the people who wait. With a fine terroir, waiting is often the best defense against the weather. And by the smell of the rsquo;94 Mouton, these are the people who waited. The wine shows a super maturity straight through. Itrsquo;s filled with potent, luscious, roasted fruit flavors. New oak boosts the richness further with caramelized sweetness. The wine is quite pretty, but it lacks the extra dimension of a first in this vintage.

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.

After less than persuasive performances in two potentially great years, 1989 and 1990, Mouton-Rothschild appears to have settled down, producing fine efforts in recent vintages, culminating with the enormously promising, unquestionably profound 1995. The 1994 appears to be the finest Mouton-Rothschild made following the 1986 and before the 1995rsquo;s conception. The wine exhibits a dense, saturated purple color, followed by a classic Mouton nose of sweet black fruits intermingled with smoke, pain grilleacute;, spice and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, with outstanding concentration, a layered feel, plenty of tannin, and rich, concentrated fruit, this wine is similar to the fine 1988. Anticipated maturity: 2005ndash;2025.

A graceful Pauillac, not showy as Mouton can be in a great year, but complete. The texture is lovely, the fruit creating a savory balance of red currant, bee pollen and blacker tones, dynamic on a small scale. The succulence of the fruit shows its breed; this will probably be best eight to ten years from the vintage.

With its distinctive antique bottle and gold-etched sheep label, this is definitely a move away from classic Bordeaux bottling. It is good that the wine can support the presentation. the fruit is so ripe it almost tastes of raisins, but that sweetness is finely balanced by the dry tannins and concentrated texture. To finish, there are exotic spices, giving an almost Oriental character to the long aftertaste.

This wine is evolving into one of Mouton-Rothschildrsquo;s greatest vintages. It boasts an inky purple color, as well as a powerful, blockbuster nose of explosively jammy cassis intermingled with toasty new oak, minerals, and spice. The wine is layered, with extraordinary depth, richness, glycerin, and length. This is undoubtedly the most exciting Mouton since the 1986, with a more precocious, up-front character than that wine. A formidable tannin level combined with low acidity (the winersquo;s PH is around 3.8), and magnificent layers of fruit suggest the 1995 will be approachable after bottling, but I expect it to close down after 6ndash;7 years in the bottle, not to reemerge for 15ndash;20 years. Anticipated maturity: 2005ndash;2030.
