Reviews for 2001 Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2004
Very smoky with berry coffee and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied with polished velvety tannins plenty of fruit and a cedary aftertaste. Tight and compacted. This is better than the 2000 Mouton...Solid and very very fine... Very smoky with berry coffee and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied with polished velvety tannins plenty of fruit and a cedary aftertaste. Tight and compacted. This is better than the 2000 Mouton...Solid and very very fine. Persists for a long time on the palate...

This is complex on the nose with black cherry, blackcurrant and graphite aromas. It's very fleshy on the palate with chewy tannins and lots of fruit. This is still a reserved and structured Bordeaux, but with power... This is complex on the nose with black cherry, blackcurrant and graphite aromas. It's very fleshy on the palate with chewy tannins and lots of fruit. This is still a reserved and structured Bordeaux, but with power lurking beneath. Still a baby.

This has another outstanding bouquet with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow, graphite and a touch of orange peel. Great delineation and vigour, a little more generous than Lafite that overtakes after an hour in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, superb acidity, great depth but perhaps just missing the persistency and vigour of the Lafite. Great mineralite on the tobacco and autumn leaf-finish.

Good full ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, mint and minerals. Juicy but quite tightly wound today; much more austere than the comparatively pliant Clerc-Milon-not to mention firmer and less fleshy than it appeared... Good full ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, mint and minerals. Juicy but quite tightly wound today; much more austere than the comparatively pliant Clerc-Milon-not to mention firmer and less fleshy than it appeared from barrel a year ago. Juicy acidity contributes to the impression of structure. Unlike most 2001s, this seems already to have gone into a shell. This penetrating, mostly cabernet sauvignon (86%) Mouton will need at least a decade of bottle aging.
