The 2005 Mouton-Rothschild has developed magnificently, and is even better than I remember. The final blend was 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc.

The final blend was 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Stunning notes of crème de cassis, melted asphalt, roasted espresso and cedarwood are present in this young, full-bodied, powerful, concentrated Mouton. Just beginning to enter its adolescence, it should hit full maturity in 10-15 years and last for 50 or more. The greatness of this vintage is increasingly apparent as the wines throw off their cloaks of tannin. 99+ - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

85% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Petit Verdot 1% Cabernet Franc. Dark purple all the way to the edge. Great spicy clove nose over cherry new oak and cardamom. Very tannic but they are juicy and well integrated. Nice ripe... 85% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Petit Verdot 1% Cabernet Franc. Dark purple all the way to the edge. Great spicy clove nose over cherry new oak and cardamom. Very tannic but they are juicy and well integrated. Nice ripe raspberry fruit with a chocolate finish that keeps going on and on. This is a beauty.

This is very "Mouton." Aromas of flowers currants cassis and minerals open up to hints of lead pencil on the nose. Full and very dense on the palate this wine is polished and very friendly.

If 2005 was a rich year Mouton reaches the heights of richness. Almost too rich too New World but you have to be impressed by the aromatic intensity of the black fruits the dense firm tannins and the superripe black juice... If 2005 was a rich year Mouton reaches the heights of richness. Almost too rich too New World but you have to be impressed by the aromatic intensity of the black fruits the dense firm tannins and the superripe black juice and licorice flavors. The wood is still too overpowering and needs time to settle in. -R.V.

Full ruby-red. Explosive superripe aromas of black raspberry currant graphite and tobacco leaf. Outsized opulent and generous; this big boy saturates the entire mouth.

Outsized opulent and generous; this big boy saturates the entire mouth. There's an almost exotic character to the plum and cedar flavors. Spreads out impressively on the back end coating the palate with ripe tannins. The 2006 is at once finer and more powerful with more noble tannins but this is more opulent.
