1994 Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/23/2015 - kenv Likes this wine: 93 points

Dinner with Bob H and Elaine (Chez V): [Brought by Bob H. Decanted around 5pm.] On first opening, it is tight as a drum, showing almost nothing. After 2 hours in the decanter, it has opened up as a complex and lovely wine. Nose of sandalwood, licorice, camphor, and black fruits (plums, cherries). Still tannic in the mouth, but with lots of ripe juicy black fruits in a long finish. Appealing now, but may improve further with another 5 years, and drink well for another 10 or 15. 93-94 points.

Dinner with Bob H and Elaine (Chez V): [Decanted at 3pm.] Nose of sweet baby poop. Hopefully that will blow off. Slowly turning into that decaying cedar mulch and old red fruit smell that I more associate with old Bordeaux than Barolo. We shall see. Bottle does seem sound. Opened up nicely in the decanter. Pour back into the bottle around 5pm. Quite mature, but never faded. Some hints of oxidation in the nose along with licorice, cedar, and tart cherries. From the nose, I might guess old Bordeaux. Smooth and lovely in the mouth. Dried sour cherries, licorice, just a hint of dark chocolate and cocoa. Lovely, but drink up.

Dinner with Bob H and Elaine (Chez V): [Decanted at 3pm.] On first opening, the color is nearly brown. The wine is giving very little right now, but seems quite sound. We await the magic.
Open several hours, it is showing beautifully. Classic nose of black fruit, tar, licorice and roses. Beautiful structure in the mouth. Mellow, but still tannic. That tannins are softening. Needs maybe 5-10 fully reach its peak, but excellent with grass-fed burgers tonight.

Gift from a friend. Quite mature, but still alive. Lots of mulch and dried cherry fruit in the nose. Silky in the mouth, but oxidized on the finish. Over the hill, but not all the way down the other side. Label says 12.8% alcohol.

From a gift sample sent by a generous soul. Amazing stuff. Color is completely dark amber. The nose is a heavenly blend of figs and honey. In the mouth, it is warm and syrupy leaving a long finish of crème brûlée and figs. The word elixir comes to mind while drinking this. I wish someone imported this to the US. Amy said she wishes she could make charoset with it.

Decanted at 5:30pm. Huge nose of ripe raspberries and red currants, with hints of cocoa and spice. Lush and silky in the mouth, with lots of tannin on the finish. Long finish. Amy really likes it. She says Parker finally got one right. ;)
Open 5 hours, it has mellowed considerably. Gorgeous, complex wine.
Open 3 days, this is glorious. Luscious without being overbearing. Really impressive stuff.

Pop and pour. A lot of sediment. Huge spicy blackberry nose. A joy to drink right out of the gate. Big ripe blackberry fruit with lots of spice and tannin. Great balance and harmony. Foie gras brings out even more complexity. Terrific wine.

2010 Barolo at La Festa del Barolo (Four Seasons Restaurant, NYC): Luca Currado talked at some length about he made a wine from this vineyard in the 2000 vintage. (The bought their parcel in 1995.) He was very unhappy with the modern techniques he used. He thought long and hard about what he had not learned from his forebearers when he made the 2000. This was the first one he decided to make since then, but using very traditional methods. Gorgeous, reserved black fruit and espresso nose. Restrained, more backward up front than the Cogno, but expands and expands in the back of the palate. Super long. Silky, thick. Needs a lot of time. Great potential.
