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.

Black red. Coffee, cigar box and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, yet harmonious, with a lovely, silky texture. A caressing and rich wine. Gorgeous. I have underrated this in the past. Best after 2005.

Bottled in June, 1997, this profound Mouton is more accessible than the more muscular 1996. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 19% Merlot, it reveals an opaque purple color, and reluctant aromas of cassis, truffles, coffee, licorice, and spice. In the mouth, the wine is ldquo;great stuff,rdquo; with superb density, a full-bodied personality, rich mid-palate, and a layered, profound finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. There is outstanding purity and high tannin, but my instincts suggest this wine is lower in acidity and slightly fleshier than the brawnier, bigger 1996. Both are great efforts from Mouton-Rothschild. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2030.

Dense purple to the rim, this wine exhibits the classic cassis aroma that is so characteristic of Mouton. Medium to full-bodied, tannic, powerful, and cut somewhat from the 1988 mold, this is a backward, chewy, well-endowed Mouton-Rothschild that will require considerable patience from those who purchase it. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, the wine needs a good decade of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2015ndash;2030+.

Mouton comes through again. Impressive rsquo;93, deep in color and full-bodied, boasting plenty of currant, black cherry, mint and toast character. Well crafted, showing depth for this vintage. Give the tannins some time to mellow.

The 1990 gets my nod as one of the three best Moutons since the great 1959 mdash; the others being the 1982 and 1986. It is much more concentrated, backward, and less evolved than the 1989, and it is also less aggressively, or should I say excessively oaky than its predecessor. But for the long-term, there is more glycerin and concentration, and the finish is sweeter and longer in the 1990. The 1989 should drink well at an earlier age given its 1985-ish personality, whereas the 1990 is more of a long distance runner. This great Mouton is one of the most complete wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2000ndash;2025. P.S. The Maitre de Chias, Michel Bosq, continues to agree that the 1990 is superior to the 1989, largely because their crop-thinning efforts were more severe in 1990.

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.

The impressive 1996 Mouton Rothschild offers impressive aromas of black currants, framboise, coffee, and new saddle leather. This full-bodied, ripe, rich, concentrated, superbly balanced wine is paradoxical in the sense that the aromatics suggest a far more evolved wine than the flavors reveal. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2030. By the way, the 1996 blend was identical to the 1995 mdash; 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc.
