A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the opaque purple-colored, chunky 2001 Mouton-Rothschild does not possess the finesse and stature often achieved by this first-growth. It offers a tell-tale cassis-scented nose, and a monolithic, medium to full-bodied style with relatively high, austere tannin in the finish (a characteristics I also noticed in cask). A dry, angular, backward effort for the vintage, it should be forgotten for at least a decade. Let’s hope the fruit continues to expand and sweeten, but that’s no sure thing. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025+. Robert Parker

Tasting note


The 2001 Chateau Mouton Rothschild from the esteemed Pauillac appellation is a testament to the grandeur of Bordeaux's winemaking. This vintage exhibits a deep, dark ruby-red hue that is nearly opaque, hinting at the complexity within. The nose is greeted with a tight bouquet of cassis, while the palate unfolds to reveal a closed structure dominated by cedar and a fresh acidity that enlivens the cassis fruit. The tannic backbone is currently unyielding, suggesting a wine that will reward patience. The well-handled cedary oak complements the wine's balance, and the finish is long and cedary, promising a future where the fruit will blossom with time.
