Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Sumptuous, decadent blackcurrants with warm spicy oak on the nose. Explosive and exotic on the palate with a generous and creamy weight to it. This fantastic wine is even more seductive than Moutons legendary 1982 and 1986. I get the feeling that more modern vintages may be even greater still.<br/><br/>(Simon Staples - Berrys Fine Wine Director - Feb 2010)

Château Mouton-rothschild:
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.

A blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% merlot. Decanted for 20 hrs but in hindsight, this should be extended to at least 36 hrs. Intense ruby garnet with a lighter rim. Youthful earthy nose with notes of leather strapping and tobacco. Dry, full-bodied with silky texture. High acidity, zippy sensations of rich, ripe blackberry fruit and trails of sour plum skin. Very smooth finish. Excellent. Drink 2015 – 2025+. 97/100.

Very tight right now; not giving much. Dark garnet color. Berry, tobacco and cedar aromas. Full-bodied, with lots of fine tannins and a firm, silky finish. Needs time to open. Best after 2008.

A candidate for wine of the vintage, there are only 20,000 cases of the 2002 Mouton-Rothschild (there are 25,000 cases of the 2000). Made from low yields of 31 hectoliters per hectare, it is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. The color may be the most saturated and opaque of any Medoc Cabernet-based 2002. It is a broad-flavored offering displaying tell-tale creme de cassis intermixed with smoke, cocoa, leather, and licorice. Still excruciatingly tannic, but incredibly dense, powerful, and rich, the phenolic measurements were nearly off the charts for this full-bodied, monster-sized Mouton. Given most Moutonsrsquo; track records, I suspect the 2002 will shut down after bottling, and perhaps need a minimum of 10ndash;15 years to re-emerge. This is unquestionably a vin de garde for long-term cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2015ndash;2040.

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 behemoth, the gigantic 2000 Mouton-Rothschild (76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot) boasts a saturated purple color as well as aromas of ink, cassis, licorice, damp earth, and sweet oak. It reveals a cassis liqueur-like flavor profile with a hint of truffles. This majestic effort will undoubtedly close down, but enjoy an exceptionally long life. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2050+.

Even in a so-called off vintage, Mouton proves why its a first growth and can command such a price. Loads of black raspberry and spice box on the nose just make your mouth water in anticipation of how good this wine will taste. Initially on the palate there is black cherry and hints of strawberry underneath that evolve into more licorice, tobacco, and smoke. It has a medium- to full-bodied structure with a finish of waves and waves of fruit that last and last. The wine needs a few hours to open up, 4ndash;5 in the bottle, or about 2 in a decanter, but I would not let it cellar for too much longer.

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.

Ageless, yet balanced. Black color. Mint, mineral, berry and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and tight. Long, long finish. A great, great wine. Drink now.
