External Reviews for Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
Gorgeous aromas of spices, berries, chocolate and raspberries introduce this pedigree bottling. A glorious young wine that gets better and better as you taste it, itrsquo;s full-bodied and incredibly silky, with super-integrated tannins and a long, long aftertaste. At its best after 2004.
One of the stars in every vintage, the rsquo;89 Mouton defines class and concentration. An exciting wine, with thick, chewy cassis, mint and berry flavors, full, silky tannins and great harmony. Try after 2000.
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.
hellip;the wine, while dark ruby/purple in color is not opaque. However, the bouquethellip; would probably merit a 96 or 97. Perfumed with oriental spices, soy sauce, leather, toasty oak, mocha, and gobs of black currants, the aromas are amazingly developed for such a young wine. In the mouth, however, despite the impressive concentration, the wine appears to lack weight and depthhellip; undoubtably an outstanding Moutonhellip; I suspect most admirers of the flashy, dramatic style of wine made at Mouton will want to consume it between 1994ndash;2010.
Perhaps the rsquo;96 will be as age-defying as the rsquo;45: This young Cabernet has the superb form, the mouthwatering freshness, the powerful structure somehow delicately crafted as a Japanese box, capable of evolving for half a century without a wrinkle. Even in its youthfully bound state, the flavors last for minutes. A glorious wine.
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.
On the surface, Mouton is often less complicated than the other firsts. Its glamorous oak scent and flashy cassis concentration are easily matched by several ambitious second-growth Pauillacs. The greatness of Mouton lies deeper, and it shows most prominently in a Cabernet vintage like rsquo;96. The vines stand in a deep sea of small stones, a gravel plateau as difficult to walk upon as a sand dune. Cabernet loves these stones and grows grapes that come about as close to the essential flavor of the variety as seems possible. Mouton is a pure, perfectly articulates Cabernet as a Shaker chair is a pure, essential and perfect chair.
Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007 Robert Parker (93-95) Drink 2015 - 2047 A superb Mouton, the 2005 is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and a dollop of Cabernet Franc. Under the new administrator, Philippe Dalhuin, the strictest selection of any recent vintage was instituted (64% of the production was used), and the 2005's 13.5% natural alcohol is one of the highest ever achieved at this estate. While not as good as the 1986 or 1982, the 2005 is a brilliant wine offering a classic inky/blue/purple color along with notions of creme de cassis, licorice, and sweet oak. Full-bodied, powerful, and exceptionally pure with good underlying acidity as well as a boatload of tannin, it will approach full maturity between 2015-2020, and should keep for 40 years.
