A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Cabernet Franc and 19% Merlot it reveals an opaque purple color and reluctant aromas of cassis truffles coffee licorice and spice. In the mouth the wine is "great stuff" with superb density a full-bodied personality rich mid-palate and a layered profound finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. There is outstanding purity and high tannin but my instincts suggest this wine is lower in acidity and slightly fleshier than the brawnier bigger 1996. Both are great efforts from Mouton-Rothschild. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.</P>

Deep, brooding, rich aromas of blackberry, violet, milk chocolate, black pepper, cedar and incense; sexy and captivating. Bright and focused on entry, then rich, very smooth and suave, with highly concentrated flavors of red berries, dark plum, cedar and graphite. The extremely long, juicy finish features lively acids, great balance and persistent notes of underbrush and minerals. The mounting tannins coat the palate dry and are still years away from resolving fully.

Firm but paper-fine tannins that slide across the palate. The tannins are just perfect. Melt in the mouth but still giving shape. Starts to open up in the glass but retains that elegance and restraint which is so beguiling. Very long finish. 18.5/20 (JH)

This explodes on the nose with prunes, blackberries, mushrooms and fresh tobacco. Full body, ripe tannins and a juicy finish. Big and powerful. Still could do with a decade or more of ageing.

Very beautiful wine. Mouton shows finesse yet richness in this vintage.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2007. -JS
