Château Mouton Rothschild

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Still remarkably youthful, it’s rich, dense and dark fruited, layered with classicism of cigar box, cedar and spices. The palate is concentrated and powerful with a silky texture and incredible length. 95 is nowhere near its peak. Many more years to go. And while I’ll never be a real Bordeaux lover, it’s clear what makes these first growths special. — 13 days ago

Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Mouton Cadet Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Deep ruby in color, almost purple; cherries, black plum, and slate on the nose; medium acidity, medium plus tannins; tastes like black cherries, graphite, wet gravel, and a hint of eucalyptus with a long peppery finish. Tastes like Bordeaux. Lots of minerals, restrained fruit. It's pretty good. — 2 months ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 vintage. Wowzers. Never been the biggest Lafite guy. Have had all the big vintages since/including 1961 but never been officially “wowed” or wowzered by Lafite. Achievement unlocked. Decanted and tasted after 2.5 hours. Threw a pretty respectable amount of sed. Cork was pristine. Nose was slightly more forward upon a high decant than usual. Light-medium body. Great, underlying richness flowing through from start to finish. An incredible 45 second denouement. Showing fantastically currently but no rush to crush. This ain’t goin nowhere. 11.5.23. — a month ago

Curious to ask/learn more about expected sediment in this old of a wine…asking bc I just opened an 03 Ornellaia and it threw no sed whatsoever. Was surprised. What does that mean? Thanks and cheers

@Tyler Felous It would seem that the 2003 was both fined and filtered since there was no sediment. Usually, with a 20 yo wine, there would be at least a discernible amount of sediment. Some winemakers neither fine nor filter their wines. Some do one or the other. Some do both. Seems to be a matter of winemaker preference. Intervention vs minimal intervention. Have had great wines on both ends of the spectrum and in between. I post amount of sed(iment) notes for the older wines as more of a “heads up” for those opening those wines in more of a relaxed setting, such as the family over for the holidays. You get to talking while pouring/decanting and a moment’s inattention can result in a glass/decanter filled with grit. Some people love sifting through the sediment but in my experience, it’s a small percentage. They can always pour those last few drops into their glass if they really want to go to town.
