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.

    (1982 Vintage) On the surface, Mouton is often less complicated than the other firsts. Its glamorous oak scent and flashy cassis concentration are easily matched by several ambitious second-growth Pauillacs. The greatness of Mouton lies deeper, and it shows most prominently in a Cabernet vintage like rsquo;96. The vines stand in a deep sea of small stones, a gravel plateau as difficult to walk upon as a sand dune. Cabernet loves these stones and grows grapes that come about as close to the essential flavor of the variety as seems possible. Mouton is a pure, perfectly articulates Cabernet as a Shaker chair is a pure, essential and perfect chair.
