2001 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux - 94 pts!
The 2001 Mouton Rothschild a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc from low yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare was quite closed and nearly impenetrable when I tasted it in 2003. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and a hint of new saddle leather intermixed with espresso black currant liqueur and Asian spices. The wine is dense on the attack but excruciatingly tannic and backward with medium to full body and a certain austerity/angularity in the finish. As I indicated last year this wine needs to flesh out for it to merit a higher score. RP
