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!
April 24, 2019 - Very dark garnet color, fine nose, balance throughout, elegant and caressing flavor and nuanced finish. A great bordeaux in its prime, served and thoroughly enjoyed at an April 23 luncheon at the French Institute / Alliance Francaise in NYC, with remarks from Philippe Sereys de Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild, Philippe de Montebello (Director Emeritus of the Metropolitan Museum of Art) and Catherine Pegard of Versailles.
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.
March 26, 2019 - Velvet, masses of fruit but in balance.
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.
February 21, 2019 - DRC tasting group.
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
November 11, 2018 - Fairly open and accessible with a medium body and very subtle and refined tannins. Strawberry and bright red fruit on the palate. This wins you over with elegance versus power.
November 10, 2018 - A Matter of Taste: New York (The Conrad NY | Del Posto): Last bottle at the tasting so glad that we got there when we did. This is very floral. Very pretty. Nicely structured.
November 10, 2018 - A wow wine for sure, even if only beginning to reveal its wares. Bright red fruit, very concentrated, seamless and silky, with softening tannins and a very long finish. A cut above so many great wines which surrounded it.
