The beautiful 1999 Mouton Rothschild may be a modern day clone of their 1962 or 1985. Its saturated ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of cedar wood creme de cassis wood smoke coffee and dried herbs. The wine is forward lush and full-bodied. It is already complex as well as succulent fleshy and long. Tannin in the finish suggests more nuances will emerge in 4-5 years. It is a complex classic Mouton. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.

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.

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.
