I was very surprised to drink a wine of this quality from Chile! The tannins were big but smooth. Hints of lead pencil and lots of dark fruit. This wine will last a very long time. It was a gift and I had never heard of it. Wow. I sure won't forget it.

a tickly wine. great with thai food! wonderful with chocolate and good with everything else. it's a cheap thrill, really. not complicated, but simply delicious, perhaps a bit too callow for some.

"This estate?s harvest began on September 29 and ended on October 15. Unlike the massive, tannic, blockbuster 2003, Mouton?s 2004 is a more linear, streamlined effort fashioned from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 12% Cabernet

Dark red/purple color, Mouth-Filling fruit, bright, crisp acidity and good tannins that are firm but not harsh. This is a Bordeaux that can be enjoyed now and for the next decade! And at a terrific price, too. As prices in Bordeaux have sky-rocketed, Croix-Mouton is roughly the same price it was three years ago.

The one and only Mouton Rothschild, the only Bordeaux ever to be promoted to First Growth status. This 2004 is a classic. The Wine Advocate gives it a 94 pt rating and says "Deep garnet-black. There’s a wonderful purity of fruit on the nose with aromas of warm blackcurrant, dark cherries, dark chocolate, anise, cinnamon and a waft of cedar. The palate is relatively rich with a medium to full body and a good amount of ripe, mouth-filling fruit. Medium+ level of velvety tannins and medium+ acidity provide nice balance. Long spicy finish. Drink 2011 to 2030+. Tasted February 2009." Very Limited. This item excluded from XTYPAK and any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount. not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Spectator or The Wine Advocate

Beautiful aromas of crushed berries and chocolate with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied with silky velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. A lovely wine for the vintage. This is the first wine from the new winemaking team at Mouton and is showing really well. Best after 2011. 23 000 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.

I can t say much for the painting by Prince Charles on the label, but what s in the bottle is a powerful, classic, dense ruby/purple-hued Mouton with a full-bodied style, brutal tannin, impressive concentration, and a primordial backwardness that will require 10-15 years of cellaring. Built along the lines of a modern day 1966 or 1988, the 2004 reveals plenty of power and concentration, but the biting tannins will preclude any enjoyable consumption over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.

The dense ruby/purple-hued, fresh, vivacious 2004 Mouton-Rothschild offers hints of new saddle leather, truffles, cassis, and pain grille, zesty acidity, a touch of austerity, and a medium-bodied, str... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml

Concha y Toro is getting Carmenere right. This affordable red is full bodied, with a fair amount of oak and bacon smothering plum and berry aromas. On the whole itrsquo;s round, juicy and fresh, with lively flavors and good feel.
