A spicy Bordeaux with berries and hints of currants. Full, super round and soft – surrounded by vanilla and blueberry pie. Round and lovely. Just coming around now. Delicious.

Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 1999 Mouton-Rothschild is a "useful," perhaps over-looked vintage from the First Growth estate. It has a clean and precise bouquet - you could almost describe this as dainty, which I mean in a positive sense. The fruit is beautifully delineated, almost pastille-like with subtle floral scents emerging with time. The palate is fresh on the entry with supple red berries pierced by a fine line of acidity. No, it is not complex and it has lost a little substance in recent years, yet it is well balanced with sufficient depth and body on the tobacco and cedar-tinged finish. If you can put its status aside, it boils down to nothing more than a well-made, easygoing and refined Pauillac to drink now and over the next decade. Tasted December 2016. - Neal Martin

Delivers sweet tobacco and plum aromas with a lovely richness. Full-bodied featuring lots of cedar tobacco chocolate and berry character. Long and silky in the palate. There is no sense in waiting; this is so delicious... Delivers sweet tobacco and plum aromas with a lovely richness. Full-bodied featuring lots of cedar tobacco chocolate and berry character.

Lush sweet and smooth with just enough vinosity to maintain its balance. A vin de plaisir whose lovely fruit and sweet harmonious tannins make it very easy to taste today (the chateau carried out a gentler shorter extraction in '99). But doesn't have quite the length or grip of a top year.
