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.

A magnificent wine thatrsquo;s ripe, powerful, seductive and amazingly deep. Massively concentrated and bursting with currant, plum, berry, cedar, chocolate and all sorts of exotic spice flavors, yet it keeps its balance, never going to excess. Lingers on the finish for minutes. A classic. Try to keep your hands off it until 2000 to 2010.

Mouton does it again. Terrific winemaking here, with black currant, tobacco and chocolate aromas and flavors. Itrsquo;s full-bodied with wonderfully silky texture. Better after 1998.

Moutonrsquo;s 1993 has turned out exceptionally well. the color is a healthy, brilliant purple, and the winersquo;s aromatic personality borders on ostentatious, with its display of cassis fruit, minerals, lead pencil, Asian spices, caramel, vanilla, and toasty oak. Spicy, with great purity of fruit, this medium-bodied wine exhibits fine density, an attractive inner core of ripeness and extraction, and a moderately tannic, surprisingly long finish. Tasted side by side against the tannins, stern, tough as nails 1990, I thought this to be the better wine, although Moutonrsquo;s raw materials in 1990 must have been significantly superior to those in 1993. Given the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (84%), the 1993 will firm up and close, but there is plenty of sweet fruit in this unquestionably successful wine. Drink it over the next 15ndash;20 years.

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.

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the opaque purple-colored, chunky 2001 Mouton-Rothschild does not possess the finesse and stature often achieved by this first-growth. It offers a tell-tale cassis-scented nose, and a monolithic, medium to full-bodied style with relatively high, austere tannin in the finish (a characteristics I also noticed in cask). A dry, angular, backward effort for the vintage, it should be forgotten for at least a decade. Letrsquo;s hope the fruit continues to expand and sweeten, but thatrsquo;s no sure thing. Anticipated maturity: 2013ndash;2025+.

Dense purple to the rim, this wine exhibits the classic cassis aroma that is so characteristic of Mouton. Medium to full-bodied, tannic, powerful, and cut somewhat from the 1988 mold, this is a backward, chewy, well-endowed Mouton-Rothschild that will require considerable patience from those who purchase it. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, the wine needs a good decade of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2015ndash;2030+.

The 2001 Mouton Rothschild, a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc from low yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare, was quite closed and nearly impenetrable when I tasted it in 2003. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and a hint of new saddle leather intermixed with espresso, black currant liqueur, and Asian spices. The wine is dense on the attack, but excruciatingly tannic and backward, with medium to full body and a certain austerity/angularity in the finish. As I indicated last year, this wine needs to flesh out for it to merit a higher score. Anticipated maturity: 2015ndash;2035.
