    April 10, 2019 - Dark as hell. Needing five hours to develop its masculine aromas of blackberries, coffee bean, currants, garrigue or sandalwood. All presented in an elegant way. Multilayered and almost aristocratic.
    On the palate is the same story. Chocolatey. Pure velvet. Delicious. Dense, meaty, opulent with a good length.
    Only because that acidity low level I've some doubts about its future. A very Mouton bottle. Two more bottles remaining.

    Oscuro como el infierno. Se necesitan cinco horas para desarrollar sus aromas masculinos de moras, pepitas de café, grosellas, garriga o sándalo. Todo presentado de una manera elegante. Múltiples y casi aristocráticas capas.
    En boca es la misma historia. Chocolateado. Terciopelo auténtico. Delicioso. Denso, carnoso, opulento, con una buena longitud.
    Solo por esa acidez de bajo nivel tengo algunas dudas sobre su futuro. Una botella muy Mouton. Dos botellas más en reserva.

    February 22, 2019 - To me Mouton is like Liverpool football Club. When they play well they are amongst the greatest. When they play poorly, then they make a shambles.
    Same with Mouton vintages and the 05 shone like a star.
    Deep blackish crimson color, had 4 glasses with Coravin so no proper decanting.
    The nose earthy black and dark red fruits, terroir screaming with joy, pencil lead and pepper.
    On the palate dense on entry, voluptuous power that takes over the palate and coats it with fruit and great acidity. Long bitter chocolate finish for this poetically beautiful and powerful wine. Outstanding.

    This was one of the stars of the evening. Rich, complex, very very long finish. A pleasure to drink. Stood out in a very stellar lineup.

    January 1, 2019 - Harmonious and creamy from bouquet to palate through finish! While VFM poor, quality cannot be questioned

    (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.
