Hey nowwww! Concentrated and earthy, sweet red fruit, graphite, crushed rock, ripe blackberry and licorice infused fig. Perfect compliment to prime filet and foie gras at hands down the best meal I’ve had this year. My sincere thanks to @Eric LaMasters for creating and “le mastering” the entire week!

Very strong showing and actually really surprising for this vintage. Thank you so much @Shawn R. A very deep ruby core, noticeable chewy tannins, truffle, iron and cassis. Less sweet fruit than the ‘86 but more powerful.

The 2001 Château Mouton Rothschild is wonderful showing from a challenging vintage in the left bank of Bordeaux. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this opens with vivid aromatics of dark fruits, leather, damp earth and wet gravel all developing in the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous silky texture, with outstanding balance and notable concentration considering the coolness of the vintage. While the 2001 is certainly enticing at this stage, it is lacking some of the characteristics that collectors might expect from a classic vintage of Mouton. Nonetheless, this is still an excellent wine, which drinking beautifully right now and should go on to provide another decade of enjoyment. Drink 2019-2029-93
