Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

2003 vintage red Wine by Chateau Mouton Rothschild from Bordeaux, France

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.

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.

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.

With its distinctive antique bottle and gold-etched sheep label, this is definitely a move away from classic Bordeaux bottling. It is good that the wine can support the presentation. the fruit is so ripe it almost tastes of raisins, but that sweetness is finely balanced by the dry tannins and concentrated texture. To finish, there are exotic spices, giving an almost Oriental character to the long aftertaste.

Full medium ruby. Exotic aromas of cassis, roast coffee and sweet oak. Sweet, thick and oaky, with superb breadth of flavor; at once chewy and smooth. An impressively rich, ripe, oaky Mouton with palate-staining length and strong finishing oakiness. But less noble and scented that the young 2002, which may be every bit as dense.

Considering the vintages and the estate, Moutonrsquo;s performances in 1989 and 1990 are puzzling. I have tasted these wines multiple times since my last reviews appeared in print. The 1989 Mouton-Rothschild is the superior wine, but in no sense is this a compelling wine if compared to the Moutons produced in 1995, 1986, and 1982. The 1989 displays a dark ruby color that is already beginning to reveal significant lightening at the edge. The bouquet is surprisingly evolved, offering up scents of cedar, sweet black fruits, lead pencil, and toasty oak. This elegant, medium-bodied restrained wine is beautifully made, stylish, and not dissimilar to the 1985. It is an excellent to outstanding Mouton that should be close to full maturity in 4ndash;5 years; it will drink well for 15ndash;20.

Mouton-Rothschildrsquo;s 1994 is undoubtedly a success. Made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, most of the harvest was completed between September 22ndash;25, with a small percentage of the grapes picked as late as October 2. The wine possesses a healthy dark purple color, and Moutonrsquo;s tell-tale, sexy nose of coffee, fruitcake, cassis, and spices. Rich, with medium to full body and undeniable power, this is a concentrated, structured wine with enough fat, flesh, and extraction to balance out the winersquo;s formidable tannin level. It possesses better integration of new oak, as well as richer, riper fruit than I found in the 1990, 1989, or 1988. The 1994, which follows a strong effort from Mouton in 1993, was made in smaller quantities, as Mouton produced 20% less wine in 1994 than 1993. A riper, more tannic, fatter, complete and complex wine than the 1993, it should be cellared for 10 years and will last for 30+ years.

Cigar tobacco, cedar and red fruit aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a delicate finish. Elegant, seductive Mouton. Best after 2006.
