Bright ruby-red. Perfumed, sexy aromas of cassis, roasted plum, violet, pepper and exotic spices. Quite dry but densely packed, with pungent cassis, leather and mineral flavors complimented by sexy oak tones and a hint of dried herbs. Grew fuller and sweeter as it opened in the glass. Finishes with major toothcoating tannins that avoid dryness. Built for long aging. This tastes richer today than it did from barrel.

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.

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.

This classic wine is only showing a portion of what itrsquo;s got to offer, but itrsquo;s excellent even so. Inky in color, with masses of berry, violet, mint, mineral and cherry character, and full in body, with tons of velvety tannins and a moderate finish. Needs time to open. Best after 2004.

Seemingly New World in its satin-textured ripeness of fruit, yet underneath the rsquo;95 Mouton has the stubborn and stolid structure of a young Pauillac. Tough black tannins mask the precise fruit character, and though the wine is huge in scale, it doesnrsquo;t yield much of itself. Mouton is usually flashier on release, but for now, this vintage is quite backward. And it goes without saying, this is a wine for long-term aging.

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.

hellip;the wine, while dark ruby/purple in color is not opaque. However, the bouquethellip; would probably merit a 96 or 97. Perfumed with oriental spices, soy sauce, leather, toasty oak, mocha, and gobs of black currants, the aromas are amazingly developed for such a young wine. In the mouth, however, despite the impressive concentration, the wine appears to lack weight and depthhellip; undoubtably an outstanding Moutonhellip; I suspect most admirers of the flashy, dramatic style of wine made at Mouton will want to consume it between 1994ndash;2010.
