Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2000
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)

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.
External Reviews for Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
Ageless, yet balanced. Black color. Mint, mineral, berry and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and tight. Long, long finish. A great, great wine. Drink now.
The evolution of the 1996 (which I retasted in late March prior to bottling) continues to confirm that this vintage is indeed awesome. The wine (which I would now rate as high as 95ndash;96), is looking extraordinary as it enters into its last few months of barrel age. Massive, thick, and rich, it looks to be as prodigious as the slightly softer 1995. It is a sensational Mouton that appears to be every bit as complete and potentially grand as the other Medoc first-growths in this vintage.
Blackberry, cherry and currant with just a hint of toasted oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a lovely combination of ripe fruit and vanilla character. Goes on and on. Long and very stylish. Balanced and refined. Best after 2011.
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.
Ruby-red, not quite as deep as the rsquo;96. Exotic, sweet aromas of currant lead pencil, spice and woodsmoke. A huge wine that conveys a sense of sheer power, but not quite as delineated or stylish as the rsquo;96. this really explodes on the aftertaste, but the rsquo;96 is more subtle. Clearly firth-grown size, but less fine that the rsquo;96.
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.
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.
