1945 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux - A True "Rock Star" - 100 Pts!!
A consistent 100-point wine (only because my point scale stops at that number) the 1945 Mouton-Rothschild is truly one of the immortal wines of the century. This wine is easily identifiable because of its remarkably exotic over-ripe sweet nose of black fruits coffee tobacco mocha and Asian spices. It is an extraordinarily dense opulent and rich wine with layers of creamy fruit behaveing more like a 1947 Pomerol than a structured powerful and tannic 1945. The wine finishes with a 60+ second display of ripe fruit extract and sweet tannin. This remarkably youthful wine (only light amber at the edge) is mindboggling! Will it last another 50 years?
