    September 15, 2019 - 85% Cabernet Sauvignon; 14% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very intense nose, picks up weight in the glass immediately. Big and pretty ripe already, full attaque but not completely wowed!

    August 3, 2019 - Great ... but closed by tight tannins despite 3 hour decant. Not hard blunt tannins, just tight. Shielding the glorious fruit underneath. Will be spectacular in 10 years for sure but I’ll try my next bottle in 4-5 years.
    Day 2 , bit more open but still no fireworks

    June 12, 2019 - Wine Group Dinner #169 - 2005 Bordeaux Part 2 (Urbane Restaurant, Brisbane): Wine Group Dinner #169, Urbane Restaurant. The first of the Firsts tonight the Mouton was a dense crimson colour with a nose of very ripe blackcurrant, blueberries, dark plums and touches of exotic spice and cedar. The palate has that touch of exoticism and plenty of black fruit with touches of dark chocolate leading into a wall of fine, long tannins on the finish. A very good wine with more to reveal as it evolves.

    June 12, 2019 - Fairly focused, although a bit loose overall. Fruit isn’t too ripe or complete despite the long palate, not to mention everything else that did not bind together. One should hope it is an off bottle. 92+

    May 18, 2019 - I dont think we let is open up enough while drinking this. Still a great wine with amazing lingering flavor. Drank this with KOBE filet and it might have been too much fat with this wine which made it seemed closed off a little.. still has more time for sure though!

    (Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Pauillac) Another supremely elegant style on the nose, although here we have a darker character than Lafite which was more perfumed and feminine. There is a more honeyed edge to the oak, also a slightly richer style to the fruit. It has that typical Mouton spice, hard to describe but perhaps a blend of smouldering embers with cinnamon, but I am sure there are better descriptions available! Great style on the palate, broad and rich, defined, very well structured, fleshy and more flattering than Lafite. Brilliantly composed, slightly loose-knit at present but this is just the wine's youthful character I think, as there is a great core of smoky tannins and fine acidity at the bottom of it all. Very impressive and a great wine for fans of Mouton.

    (Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac) Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Cabernet Franc 1%, Merlot 14%. Unsurprisingly this has an intense, youthful, crimson appearance, with a densely coloured rim. Pure cassis, raspberry and cranberry fruit on the nose, creamy and intense, still showing toasty and toffee oak but this is well covered by the wealth of fruit. The palate is creamy, with a firm seam of tannins, but they are ripe and well protected. Piles of fruit, lovely depth and complexity, with spiced bramble and summer fruits, but with well balanced acidity. This is exotic and very fine indeed. Great potential.
