Description

Château Mouton Rothschild 1'eme Cru Classé Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2002

Grapes: A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, 84ha vineyard on deep gravel soil with vines averaging 44 years of age, hand harvested, 18 months' ageing in new French oak barrels

Producer Tasting Note:

A lovely, clear and glittering ruby red of remarkable intensity, the wine has a nose that opens on generous animal notes then goes on to develop fruit aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant, combining elegant oak with a touch of minerality. The attack is dense and rich, on still-firm, refined and very well-rounded tannins. The mid-palate reveals a powerful structure and beautiful balance between fruit and oak, displaying perfect harmony between notes of toast, mocha, blackcurrant and cherry liqueur, and leading into a long and stylish finish.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Deep crimson. Firm, strongly cassis nose. Very voluptuous texture. Appetising and beautifully balanced. Obviously Médoc. Dried out a little on the end but the contrast between the flesh of this wine and skinniness of the Margaux tasted immediately beforehand could not have been more marked. It was still fresh and clean 24 hours afterwards but had lost a little density."

18.5/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, November 2012 (Drink now to 2030)

"This was a treat as First Growths are not popped that much these day. This is coming along nicely, with tobacco, cedar wood, cassis and earthy, forest floor notes continue developing. It's not the most concentrated vintage of Mouton, but it's starting to soften and fill out, while adding complexity and charm. Produced from a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, I'd give it another 5 - 8 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 2 decades."

93/100 points, Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, January 2013
