Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée Aile d'Argent 2004
Tasting Notes :The dense ruby/purple-hued, fresh, vivacious 2004 Mouton-Rothschild offers hints of new saddle leather, truffles, cassis, and pain grille, zesty acidity, a touch of austerity, and a medium-bodied, streamlined, restrained personality. This rich, pure claret will require patience as it needs a decade of cellaring to shed its lofty tannins.

Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, like the famous Mouton Cadet.
External Reviews for Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée Aile d'Argent
Dark red/purple color, Mouth-Filling fruit, bright, crisp acidity and good tannins that are firm but not harsh. This is a Bordeaux that can be enjoyed now and for the next decade! And at a terrific price, too. As prices in Bordeaux have sky-rocketed, Croix-Mouton is roughly the same price it was three years ago.

I can t say much for the painting by Prince Charles on the label, but what s in the bottle is a powerful, classic, dense ruby/purple-hued Mouton with a full-bodied style, brutal tannin, impressive concentration, and a primordial backwardness that will require 10-15 years of cellaring. Built along the lines of a modern day 1966 or 1988, the 2004 reveals plenty of power and concentration, but the biting tannins will preclude any enjoyable consumption over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.
The one and only Mouton Rothschild, the only Bordeaux ever to be promoted to First Growth status. This 2004 is a classic. The Wine Advocate gives it a 94 pt rating and says "Deep garnet-black. There’s a wonderful purity of fruit on the nose with aromas of warm blackcurrant, dark cherries, dark chocolate, anise, cinnamon and a waft of cedar. The palate is relatively rich with a medium to full body and a good amount of ripe, mouth-filling fruit. Medium+ level of velvety tannins and medium+ acidity provide nice balance. Long spicy finish. Drink 2011 to 2030+. Tasted February 2009." Very Limited.

Beautiful aromas of crushed berries and chocolate with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied with silky velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. A lovely wine for the vintage. This is the first wine from the new winemaking team at Mouton and is showing really well. Best after 2011. 23 000 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.
"This estate?s harvest began on September 29 and ended on October 15. Unlike the massive, tannic, blockbuster 2003, Mouton?s 2004 is a more linear, streamlined effort fashioned from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 12% Cabernet
