In a rainy harvest, there are the people who panic and pick while the fruit is still diluted, and the people who wait. With a fine terroir, waiting is often the best defense against the weather. And by the smell of the rsquo;94 Mouton, these are the people who waited. The wine shows a super maturity straight through. Itrsquo;s filled with potent, luscious, roasted fruit flavors. New oak boosts the richness further with caramelized sweetness. The wine is quite pretty, but it lacks the extra dimension of a first in this vintage.

Ruby-red, not quite as deep as the rsquo;96. Exotic, sweet aromas of currant lead pencil, spice and woodsmoke. A huge wine that conveys a sense of sheer power, but not quite as delineated or stylish as the rsquo;96. this really explodes on the aftertaste, but the rsquo;96 is more subtle. Clearly firth-grown size, but less fine that the rsquo;96.

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.

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.

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.

This classic wine is only showing a portion of what itrsquo;s got to offer, but itrsquo;s excellent even so. Inky in color, with masses of berry, violet, mint, mineral and cherry character, and full in body, with tons of velvety tannins and a moderate finish. Needs time to open. Best after 2004.

This wine is evolving into one of Mouton-Rothschildrsquo;s greatest vintages. It boasts an inky purple color, as well as a powerful, blockbuster nose of explosively jammy cassis intermingled with toasty new oak, minerals, and spice. The wine is layered, with extraordinary depth, richness, glycerin, and length. This is undoubtedly the most exciting Mouton since the 1986, with a more precocious, up-front character than that wine. A formidable tannin level combined with low acidity (the winersquo;s PH is around 3.8), and magnificent layers of fruit suggest the 1995 will be approachable after bottling, but I expect it to close down after 6ndash;7 years in the bottle, not to reemerge for 15ndash;20 years. Anticipated maturity: 2005ndash;2030.
