International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($120-$179) Good full ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, mint and minerals. Juicy but quite tightly wound today; much more austere than the comparatively pliant Clerc-Milon-not to mention firmer and less fleshy than it appeared from barrel a year ago. Juicy acidity contributes to the impression of structure. Unlike most 2001s, this seems already to have gone into a shell. This penetrating, mostly cabernet sauvignon (86%) Mouton will need at least a decade of bottle aging.

Silly, heavier bottle than most. Dark crimson. Sweet tobacco notes and then a bit of greenness. Not the most mellifluous Mouton. A little jagged and awkward.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 153

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.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Very smoky, with berry, coffee and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied, with polished velvety tannins, plenty of fruit and a cedary aftertaste. Tight and compacted. This is better than the 2000 Mouton. It's a baby 1986 Mouton. Solid and very, very fine. Persists for a long time on the palate.

86% Cab Sav, 12% Merlot, 2% Cab Franc - powerful, ashy spice with subdued fruits of chocolate and licorice. Needs time to develop. Silky & smooth tannins with a surprisingly light mouth feel. Drying, bitter tannins on the long finish.
