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

As the Bordeaux theme continues...not much fanfare as the 86 but still very impressive. Decanted four hours and drank over the next 4+. Slight bricking on the edges. Has this cranberry element and menthol on the nose leans more red fruit. Tobacco, herbs and mint. More flat across the palate yet very enjoyable. Finish has verve yet not long showing perfect balance of acid. Tannins are still there and not sure time finds away to soften them.

Medium garnet red. Lovely nose with layers of perfume, damp leaves, leather, tobacco and dried cherries. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and medium bodied. Tons of dried red cherries on the palate mixed in with leather, damp forest floor and mushrooms. Long and lingering finish, that still has quite a bit of acidity on the back end. Drink till 2038.

Richness, length, depth, soaring complexity, sweet red currants and blackberry, saddle leather, tobacco, and black truffle and damp earth. Fabulous.

The 2005 Mouton is one heck of a wine. I've been lucky enough to try it a few times and this time was, as always, a treat. The intensity and darkness of it is what I like most. It is ripe, but not too ripe. Rather, just ripe enough to give considerable richness and intensity, yet with perfect poise. I can't wait for the next time.

The 2009 Mouton is modern, cool and stunning. Appropriate therefore that Anish Kapoor designed the label. Smoke, cherry, leather, herbs, tobacco meld together. Rich and yet fresh. Some vanilla and mocha elements come through on the finish. Grippy tannins, this wine has a long way to go.
