Riche, corsé, concentré et profond, il faut des efforts pour entrer dans le vin, car je soupçonne qu’il s’agit de se resserrer et de s’endormir pendant au moins une dizaine d’années. Cependant, il est impossible de ne pas trouver les couches de fruits rouges mûrs, luxuriants, forts, sucrés et rouges qui remplissent votre palais du début à la fin. C’est textuellement excitant et la finition est tout simplement géniale à mesure que le vin s’accumule et se développe. Il s’agit d’un concurrent pour l’un des vins du millésime.

Les truffes, la terre humide, les emballages de tabac, le sol forestier et les notes de feuilles contribuent aux nuances. Corsé, ferme, tannique et de conception classique, le vin est toujours strict. Beaucoup de fruits sont enfouis sous la paroi des tanins, mais il faut du temps pour que les tanins se calment. Cela prendra au moins 10 à 15 ans pour devenir civilisé.

08 Mouton Rothschild a montré une bonne profondeur de couleur. Les fruits noirs, les épices asiatiques et la vanille étaient partout au nez. Ce vin corsé s’accumule en bouche. Les tanins arrondis favorisent le style opulent et riche. Le 08 est un Mouton classique, moins exotique que certains millésimes précédents. Mais cela gagnera beaucoup de fans. La récolte tardive s’est faite entre 83% de Cabernet Sauvignon et 17% de Merlot et a été relativement rapide entre le 2 et le 15 octobre. 92-95 pts

Sans la profondeur et l’opulence des meilleures années, le vin échange concentration et complexité pour un pauillac de poids moyen, correct, à boire tôt avec un vrai caractère bordelais. A 10 ans, c’est déjà un charmeur. Cependant, ce n’est pas du vin pour une cave plus longue. Si vous avez une bouteille, ouvrez un bouchon au cours des 3 à 8 prochaines années pour tirer le meilleur parti du vin.

Lassen Sie sich nicht vom Aufhellen der Farbe am Rand täuschen, wenn Sie dies für trinkfertig halten. Die Nase zeigt erst jetzt ihre Eigenschaften wie Tabak, Zigarrenschachtel, Waldboden, exotische Gewürze und dunkle Früchte. Vollmundig, dicht und kraftvoll, während immer noch eine Fülle von Tanninen vorhanden ist, sind die Tannine reif. Die Frucht ist süß, warm und würzig. Die Aromen von Kirschlikör und Kirsch im geschmeidigen, strukturierten Finish haben eine Schönheit. Wenn Sie Ihre Weine jung mögen oder keine Geduld haben, können Sie eine Flasche öffnen. Aber wenn Sie einen kalten Keller haben und noch 5-10 Jahre warten können, ist dies ein Wahnsinn. Die Ernte wurde aus einer Mischung von 87% Cabernet Sauvignon und 13% Merlot hergestellt und begann am 20. September und endete am 5. Oktober.

2006 Mouton Rothschild ist der Wein des Jahrgangs. Es ist erst 4 Jahre alt und sein Potenzial ist bereits klar erkennbar. Die besten Weine bieten einen einzigartigen Charakter und 2006 hat Mouton das in den Spaten! Die Aromen explodieren aus dem Glas. Das komplexe Parfüm ist mit primären Düften von Rauch, Karamell, Teer, Espresso, Kaffee, Schokolade, würziger Schwarzkirsche und Cassis gefüllt. Dieser dichte Wein ist extrem reichhaltig und bietet mehrere Fruchtschichten und Frische. Es überzieht Ihren Gaumen mit einem Finish, das fast 60 Sekunden dauert! Die Frucht zeigt eine intensive Reinheit, die schwer zu finden ist. Verbraucher, die einen großartigen Jahrgang von Mouton besitzen möchten, sollten das Jahr 2006 festlegen. Meiner Meinung nach wird dies in den kommenden Jahren als einer der legendären Jahrgänge von Mouton Rothschild angesehen. Es ist zwar teuer, verkauft sich aber für weniger als andere neuere Jahrgänge wie 2000, 2005 und 2009 und dies ist ein besserer Wein! 99 Punkte

In a vintage that produced several legendary wines from the Northern Medoc, the 2003 Mouton Rothschild is a bit of a disappointment. From a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the wine is already starting to open up, which is a rarity for Mouton, a wine that’s known for often taking decades to mature. Tobacco, earth, Asian spice, creme de cassis, blueberry, smoke, licorice and gravel scents produce the perfume. Soft and opulent in texture, with a flamboyant personality, the wine is surprisingly low in alcohol for the vintage at 12.9%. It lacks that special something found in the top wines from the controversial vintage.

It’s not the most concentrated vintage of Mouton, but it’s starting to soften and fill out, while adding complexity and charm.

Not as deep as I recalled the last time I tasted a bottle. Elegant and refined, with tobacco, cigar box, cedar, cherry and cassis, this is very classy and refined. This is a perfect example of what writers in the 1980’s called a wine with breeding. That term, and soon this wine, will have both faded away. The term is already gone, and if you continue waiting, the same thing will happen to this wine. You don’t have to finish your bottles today, but there is no reason to wait either.

Much better than anticipated, this is a nice Mouton, albeit light and quite green in character with its lean to herbs, forest leaf, cedar and mint.

This was a beautiful bottle. With wines more than 30 years of age, each bottle is going to be a different experience. This was a stunner. 3 hours of decanting produced a nose of flowers, tobacco, cedar, cassis, blackberry, spice and cigar box notes. Full bodied, rich and concentrated, there was an elegance to the regal bearing that really showed up. At almost 35 years of age, this can still age and improve.

Perhaps 1961, 1959 or 1945 was like this, while in its way to maturity. This wine offered every quality shared by all great wines. Deep in color, the wine looked at least 20 years younger than its true age. Exotic aromatics of 5 spice, Cuban Cigars, tobacco, smoke, Asian spice, cloves and black cherry liqueur were all over the place. The wine coats your palate and stains your teeth with all its sweet, ripe fruit. Concentrated, almost dense, the texture delivers a unique, exotic quality.

When an older bottle of Bordeaux is on, it’s on and there is nothing like it. From a perfectly stored bottle, pungent aromas of cedar wood, tobacco, forest floor, leather and exotic spices come through loud and clear. Powerful, yet refined, the tannins are silk and the finish goes on and on, leaving with fresh, ripe fruits that linger.

I’ve had this wine so many times lately, I should be embarrassed. It’s one of the top Left Bank wines from 1982 in Bordeaux, rivaled only by Latour. At 31 years of age, this is still young, yet there is a lot to gained by experiencing the wine. The bouquet, with its smoke, truffle, liqueur, tobacco, cigar box, cassis, blackberry and spice notes are almost worth the price of admission. On the palate, the wine coats your taste receptors with opulently textured ripe berries. There is an exotic sensation to the texture, flavor and fruit that is not sensed in other wines. Truly, this is what great wine is all about.

It’s not often you get to compare 1982 Mouton Rothschild with 1982 Latour, but there they were, in the same, amazing flight! The Mouton, with its flamboyant, opulent style was the showier of the pair, but it was not quite at the same level. Still, the stunning nose of Asian spice, smoke, earth, black cherry, forest floor, cigar box and coffee bean grabbed your attention. Rich, powerful and packed with layers of sweet, deep, ripe, juicy dark berries, the wine ended with a long wave of black cherries and spice. Still young, another decade will add a lot to the wine.

I’ve been fortunate to have tasted this a few times a year for the past decade. While some bottles show better than others, all thewell-stored bottles share a common trait. At 30 years of age, the wine is still young! 1982 Mouton Rothschild continues to evolve at a glacial pace. I’m not sure this has budged over the past several years. With an hour or two of air and some coaxing, this massive, full bodied, powerful, concentrated, deep wine give up smoke, truffle, Asian spice, cassis, earth, tobacco, blackberry, coffee and gravel in the perfume. There is not a single hard edge to be found in this stunning Pauillac. If you have patience, another 5-10 years in the cellar should add a lot to this 100 year wine.

This is the second time I was able to taste this wine in almost as many weeks. Asian spice, coffee, incense, oak, mint, cassis, cedar wood, fresh blackberries, lead pencil and coconut aromatics meshed together to produce an exotic perfume.

It’s hard to believe this wine is closing in on it’s 30’th birthday and it’s still young, vibrant and fresh. It’s so youthful, it could easily be mistaken for a wine half its age in a blind tasting! Deep in color, with spice box, cassis, blackberry, coffee, earth, tobacco, truffle, cedar chest and forest floor scents, the wine is amazingly powerful and intense. With textures of exotic silk, this rich, opulent, flashy wine could use another decade of bottle age before it really begins to open up and show why it’s considered such a legendary Bordeaux wine.

This is a huge, massive, concentrated wine. Still opaque in color, this looks and tastes like a 10 year old wine. But, it is easy to see how much wine is in this wine. Layer after layer of dense, ripe fruit cascades over your palate. The complexity in the flavors and the finesse of the tannins are a pleasure. It’s a wine that requires drinking over an entire evening to enjoy it’s evolution. Over the few hours it was opened, it kept getting better and more complex! The finish stays in your palate for a full sixty seconds. It remains in your memory even longer.

Copious amounts of exotic, Asian spice, coffee, earth, cassis, tobacco, truffle and cedar make up the prefume. This very concentrated Pauillac wine offeres an intense mouth presence.

In the palate, incredible waves of opulent, sweet, ripe fruit fill every nook and cranny of your senses. The seamless finish lasts over one minute! Possibly, because this bottle had not been moved from the Chateau since release, this was an off the charts tasting experience! The wine kept improving in the glass over the multi hour lunch at Chateau Mouton Rothschld.

Even with 6 hours of decanting, this did not fully open up. Flashes of exotic brilliance could be seen with coaxing. This wine enjoys immense levels of concentration seldom seen in Bordeaux.

People often complain about Mouton and its First Growth status. The 82 will turn any doubter into a believer. This immense, opulent, Asian spiced exotic wine is so rich, powerful and spicy, it should be illegal. Still young, another 10-20 more years of bottle age will turn this into a legend.

The wine had color that was as black as ink. Cedar wood, meshed with an exotic spice box note, fresh brewed coffee, licorice and lead pencil notes were all on full display. Very tannic. Huge, dense, corpulent, concentrated layers of fruit took over your palate. This is so concentrated, you could eat it. Some bottles have been more opulent, but this was more concentrated, and backwards. A stunning wine! However, another decade or more of cellaring is warranted. This will probably be drinking well on its 100th birthday.

This is a huge, ostentatious wine. It also demands another 5-10 years of cellaring. This wine has so much potential it’s scary! The color was dark, almost opaque. The aromatics which needed much swirling to ferret them out featured exotic spices and a coffee note along with cassis and truffle. The perfume was one of the most complex fragrances offered in any wine I can recall. On the palate the flavors were also rich, deep and intense. The wine had so much weight, it could be described as dense, ending with a fat, opulent, weighty finish that didn’t quit. This should begin running on all cylinders around 2015 and last for at least another 30 more years.

Mouton Rothschild light, with more brick than red in the color. Medium bodied, with a brightness to the red berries and cranberry fruits that are accompanied by spicebox, cedar, lead pencil, forest floor and tobacco notes. There is charm without a lot of depth and with the higher levels of acidity creeping in, the wine is on the fading side of life. If you have a few bottles, you should be popping a cork sooner than later on this as it is not going to get better from here.

This amazing Bordeaux was light garnet with brick and deep amber hues in color. This wine could open its own perfume shop with its intense bouquet.

The fruit displayed an incredible silky, velvet richness on your palate. The opulent, flamboyant, decadent sensations that drenched your palate would excite the most jaded wine lover. The long, complex, seamless finish flowed over every inch of your mouth. I would never have thought this wine was 64 years old. In fact, I hope I’m in that good a shape and that someone will still need me and feed me, « When I’m 64 ». Part of the reason the wine is so concentrated is, it was produced from incredibly low yields of 10 hectoliters per hectare. Also, much of the wine came from the estates oldest vines, as the vineyards were allowed to lapse during the war. Not much wine was made.

This wine showed why Bordeaux is the worlds most collectible wine while offering a perfect illustration on why we need to allow our wines to reach maturity. The palate was liquid silk and velvet that was painted with patina of history which added incredible layers of aged richness to the experience. Old, mature lushness is much more sensuous than anything offered by younger wines. Decanting cannot offer this. Only decades in the bottle allow the best wines to reach this pinnacle.
