Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2005
Good saturated ruby-red. Tight nose hints at currant and smoky oak. Highly concentrated, densely packed and built to age. As young as it is, it also shows a lovely velvety texture rare for this vintage. Finishes with... Good saturated ruby-red. Tight nose hints at currant and smoky oak. Highly concentrated, densely packed and built to age. As young as it is, it also shows a lovely velvety texture rare for this vintage. Finishes with terrific breadth, subtle minerality and noble tannins. I've been a fan of this wine since the outset.

Tasted blind at Farr’s 2002 Bordeaux tasting.

Tasted blind at Farr’s 2002 Bordeaux tasting. The nose on this wine is tightly-coiled, holding something back for later, but you can coax out some attractive aromas of blackberry, tobacco, saddle-leather and pine cones. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, not quite as refined as Latour, but certainly coalescing in the glass beautifully with a wonderfully poised, almost feminine finish that caresses the palate. Lovely.

Complex aromas of tobacco, cedar, berry and currants. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and ripe tannins. Not as good as a barrel sample tasted earlier, but still outstanding for the vintage. Best after 2009. –JS

This shows cigar box, cedar, cassis as well as blackberries and some earth on the nose. It's full-bodied with dense fruit, soft tannins and a long and intense finish. Not bad for 2002. Enjoyable now but with lots of... This shows cigar box, cedar, cassis as well as blackberries and some earth on the nose. It's full-bodied with dense fruit, soft tannins and a long and intense finish. Not bad for 2002. Enjoyable now but with lots of bottle age to come.

Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2002 Mouton-Rothschild is a wine that burned brightly in its youth, though recent encounters suggest that maybe it is beginning to flag as it enters what you might call middle age. Here, it has a conservative bouquet with blackberry, cedar, warm bricks and melted tar aromas - an unfussy, uncomplicated, quite serious Pauillac bouquet. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity. It feels lively on the entry with fine tannin, a Mouton that is nimble on its feet with a gentle grip towards the finish, which offers a satisfying aftertaste of spice and clove. It does not mirror some of the outstanding bottles I consumed within the first decade of its life, and peering into this First Growth, it is difficult to see whether it will repay those who cellar it longer. Tasted December 2016. - Neal Martin
