Firm texture and complex aromas of chocolate, fruit and cedar. It's all held together with sleek, firm tannins. Very good fruit extraction.
Seductive, with plum, smoke and vanilla aromas and flavors, full, silky tannins and a long, rich finish. Still quite backward; needs time to unwind. Drink after 1998. 25,000 cases made.
It's rare for Mouton to show the aristocracy of its vineyard at a young stage, but this 2000 makes it clear. The depth and bearing, the sophistication and grip, the sense of power withheld is all right there ion the first pour. Perhaps this seems leaner that the wine often does (my mental image of young Mouton is plump and extravagant, while Lafite plays the lean and hungry youth). But here that leanness is a stance, as there's plenty of stuffing underneath, plenty of gentle, supple red fruit to flesh out the mineral structure. Complex scents of five spice and pencil lead add layers to that suppleness, making the wine feel tart and rich at once. A Mouton for the ages.
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 '94 Mouton, these are the people who waited. The wine shows a super maturity straight through. It'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.
...I agree that among the first-growths, this wine is showing surprising forwardness and complexity in its aromatics. It possesses an exuberant, flamboyant bouquet of roasted coffee, cassis, smoky oak, and soy sauce. The impressive 1996 Mouton-Rothsc... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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.
The 2005 Mouton Rothschild will have to take a back seat to the prodigious 2006, but administrator Philippe Dalhuin deserves considerable credit for pushing Mouton to higher quality levels over recent years. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot, the dark purple-hued 2005 exhibits a restrained but promising nose of cedar, tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, and toasty oak. Full-bodied, tannic, and extremely backward, with the vintage's tell-tale acidity, it appears to be even more closed in the bottle than it was from barrel. It does possess a long finish and multilayered mouthfeel. This is an undeniably outstanding, yet restrained, shy wine for a Mouton Rothschild. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040+
The dense ruby/purple-hued, fresh, vivacious 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.
