2000 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux - 97 Pts!
The 2000 Mouton Rothschild is at its best with about 24-48 hours of decanting. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot the wine offers a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to reticent but promising aromas of toast coffee licorice creme de cassis and roasted nuts. Dense chewy and backward with tremendous purity and density in addition to obvious toasty oak it is full-bodied powerful tannic and backward. Twenty-four to 48 hours of aeration only hints at its ultimate potential. This blockbuster will be exceptionally long-lived. It is not as expressive as the other first-growth Medocs but give it time. As I predicted in my first report on the millennium vintage April 2001 Philippine de Rothschild could be expected to do something special with her presentation of 2000. She has exceeded everyone's expectations with a work of art. Those who have seen the extraordinary packaging of the 2000 Mouton Rothschild must certainly realize this is a brilliant achievement. The bottle is extraordinary and likely to have nearly as much value empty as full! Her genius is obvious but it's what's inside that counts! RP
