Mouton Rothschild 2005 (750ML)
97 WA
"The 2005 Mouton Rothschild (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc) has a sensational nose of crème de cassis and incense as well as a touch of lead pencil shavings and forest floor. Dense purple, this is one of the biggest, richest wines I tasted from the Médoc. It is full-bodied, pure, and impressively endowed. Certainly the selection process and the vineyard have come through in admirable form. This wine has a certain accessibility due to the sweetness of the tannin, but it is multidimensional, with a majestic mouthfeel and length. Drink it over the next 30+ years...97" Robert Parker, WA 6/15 "This accelerates on the palate with incredibly ripe tannins and finesse. Full body, roasted fruit, leather and grilled meat. Dried flowers, too. It shows superb tannin backbone and polish. Tight and youthful. Just starting to open. Currant and berry undertones with lead pencil are impressive. Better in 2018 but so delicious now...98" JS 10/15 "Graphite, scorched earth, tar, licorice, incense and a host of dark fleshed stone fruits emerge from the 2005 Mouton-Rothschild. Here the overall impression is of pure verticality and structure. Dense, powerful and super-concentrated on the palate, the 2005 is another wine that is just beginning to gradually enter the early part of what looks like a long plateau of fabulous drinking. The tannins have softened, but the flavors remain quite vibrant. Readers who appreciate more layers of nuance should cellar the 2005 for at least a few more years...98" Antonio Galloni, VM
