    July 16, 2021 - Deep ruby almost purple color. Elegant persistent rush of symphonically balanced notes of blackberry, vanilla, graphite, dark chocolate and forest floor. Dry, rounded acidity, surprisingly chewy tannins, palate follows through. Full body. Great balance (albeit with a short tannin wall at end). Long finish. A masterpiece, but admittedly not transcendent.

    July 1, 2021 - In great shape. Everything was in the right place. Did not hit any transcendent notes but was awfully good.

    In perfect shape. Still young, decanted for a few hours, iron, graphite, some black currant, great acidity, reluctant in fruit but powerful in concentration and length. Far away from his peak. 98+, nailed it

    June 15, 2021 - Not a great bottle. Cork was 80% wet and came out in two pieces. The wine itself seemed reticent upon decanting and didn't show betterment during it's six-hour decant. Good color and aromatics, but closer to ordinary than possessing the essence of a first growth quality or Mouton personality on the palate and finish.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Chateau Mouton-Rothschild) This is one of my favorite Bordeaux's ever. Had this two years ago on my b'day and thought it was time to check in again. Glad I did. Glorious nose of cassis, lead pencil, moss, minerals, blackcurrants, black cherries, menthol, tobacco & cigar box. The full Pauillac symphony in effect. Like a grape press concentrator in the mouth. Layers upon layers of cassis & redcurrants with a velvety texture but still very grippy tannins and a youthful mouthfeel. Not as youthful as two years ago with primary fruit but still stuns you with the amount of fruit has left. Long finish that dissipates when it's ready. Just perfect but then again nothing really is.
