(1999 Vintage) 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.
DecanterRating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Distinct browning; slightly oxidised nose, coffee; distinct oxidation on palate, faded and could never have been that good; medium length.
