Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) The wine has a fine, deep color, almost black with a purple-violet tint, and an open, complex nose. Red fruit aromas predominate (redcurrant, cherry liqueur, bilberry), alongside slightly floral notes of lily and violet together with fine vanilla. From a full, firm attack with plenty of heft and substance, the body builds on mature, silky, creamy tannins, with intense flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry and spice with a hint of cinnamon. The finish, powerful, substantial and long, reveals all the expressiveness and distinction of a great Mouton Rothschild, reminiscent in its richness and elegance of the very fine 1986 vintage.

Wine is due in Spring/Summer of 2008."A superb Mouton, the 2005 is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and a dollop of Cabernet Franc. Under the new administrator, Philippe Dalhuin, the strictest selection of any recent vintage was instituted (64% of the production was used), and the 2005's 13.5% natural alcohol is one of the highest ever achieved at this estate. While not as good as the 1986 or 1982, the 2005 is a b...
