Deep Red. The nose was distinctly brettanomyces all but drowning the dark berry aroma. The nose did not develop at all over a 3 hour period. On the palate the wine was simple and exhibited little secondary character - perhaps at best some cedar. Tannins were dusty and generally what you expect of a wine of this age. This wine was a very big disapointment. (Served blind with 5 winemakers, all in agreement).

Blackberry and spice aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and roasted, almost exotic fruit character on the finish. Lovely Mouton... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml

The beautiful 1999 Mouton Rothschild may be a modern day clone of their 1962 or 1985. Its saturated ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of cedar wood, creme de cassis, wood smoke, coffee, and dried herbs. The wine is forward, lush, and full-bodied. It is already complex as well as succulent, fleshy, and long. Tannin in the finish suggests more nuances will emerge in 4-5 years. It is a complex, classic Mouton. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.

Delivers sweet tobacco and plum aromas, with a lovely richness. Full-bodied, featuring lots of cedar, tobacco, chocolate and berry character. Long and silky in the palate. There is no sense in waiting; this is so delicious now.-89/99 Bordeaux blind... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Mouton-Rothschild 1500ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Weather conditions were the reverse of the previous year. Severe drought and high temperatures led to early ripening and a harvest that was two weeks in advance of a typical year.  Ripe, healthy and highly concentrated grapes helped to produce a remarkable wine. Assemblage Cabernet Sauvignon: 78% Carmenère: 19% Cabernet Franc: 3% Barrel Aging 16 Months, new French oak. Tasting Notes A ripe black cherry stained wine. Powerful and intense, the nose is cooked forest berries, cherry pips, cassis, boysenberry, mineral and resin. Toast, grilled espresso beans and bitter chocolate accompany cigar tobacco leaves and bitter almond. On the palate, the dense and vivacious attack evolves toward a strong structure of round, tight and refined tannins. The excellent concentration of berries, prunes and dark cocoa persists, and aromas of smooth coffee linger on the palette. A singular balance and wonderful finesse, the finish has great persistence. This concentrated wine has long ageing potential.
