Reviews for 1996 Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend

WS 96
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2007
Incredible nose of ultraripe fruit it's yet subtle and complex. Full-bodied with very ripe almost sweet fruit and a long long caressing finish. Superb. This is edging out the 1995.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best... Incredible nose of ultraripe fruit it's yet subtle and complex. Full-bodied with very ripe almost sweet fruit and a long long caressing finish. Superb. This is edging out the 1995.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010. -JS

Intense fragrant aromas of strawberry iris coffee white pepper and bay leaf are lifted by an aromatic spice note; one can recognize the cabernet franc here. Rich dense and suave with very pure red fruit cedar and herb flavors that coat the palate and are nicely carried by vibrant harmonious acidity. Finishes with outstanding length noble tannins and a late spicy floral kick. This outstanding Mouton has improved enormously since its release. Tourbier agrees: "We were a little worried initially that this Mouton seemed too rigid almost austere. Instead it did a complete turnaround once bottled surprising us as well.

Fabulous on the nose with aromas of currants, cedar, sweet tobacco, incense, and flowers. Full-bodied, with very fine silky tannins and similar flavors as the aromas. A slightly green undertone on the palate. Drink now... Fabulous on the nose with aromas of currants, cedar, sweet tobacco, incense, and flowers. Full-bodied, with very fine silky tannins and similar flavors as the aromas. A slightly green undertone on the palate. Drink now. Decant an hour before serving.

It possesses an exuberant flamboyant bouquet of roasted coffee cassis smoky oak and soy sauce. The impressive 1996 Mouton-Rothschild offers impressive aromas of black currants framboise coffee and new saddle leather. This full-bodied ripe rich concentrated superbly balanced wine is paradoxical in the sense that the aromatics suggest a far more evolved wine than the flavors reveal. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030.
