    ($319-$395) Full medium ruby. Exotic aromas of cassis, roast coffee and sweet oak. Sweet, thick and oaky, with superb breadth of flavor; at once chewy and smooth. An impressively rich, ripe, oaky Mouton with palate-staining length and strong finishing oakiness. But less noble and scented than the young 2002, which may be every bit as dense.

    Dark, glowing ruby. Notably toasty nose - odd for a first growth! Easy to like for its sweetness and toastiness. This does not seem to have first growth subtlety - though it does have that snazzy heavy bottle with the gold sheep engraved on it...

    Perhaps the most beautiful packaging ever on a Bordeaux bottle, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild literally produced a work of art in the gold-engraved bottle of 2000 Mouton Rothschild. Of course, one can't drink the glass, but this is a top-flight Mouton Rothschild, eclipsed only by the 2006 and 2009. A rich, tannic, earthy style, with loads of creme de cassis and floral notes, the final blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot is a full-bodied wine with plenty of coffee, earth, chocolatey notes, and still plenty of tannin to resolve. I gave it an anticipated maturity range of 2015-2050 back in 2003, and that looks on target.

    Rich, with loads of tobacco, berry, currant and coffee. Full-bodied and round, with velvety tannins and a long, vanilla aftertaste. If this had a tiny bit more concentration in the center palate, it would be a few points more. Still, it's an outstanding wine. A generous and opulent Mouton. 21,215 cases made.

    On first glance, the laser etched 24 carat gold inlaid bottle looks similar to a Lyeth bottle from California. On closer inspection, the wine?s packaging is substantially more impressive. I don'tforesee too many of these bottles being recycled in the future. Opaque black cherry red with thick slow moving moderately pigmented legs. A sexy and smoky nose of slight game and deep intensely concentrated dark fruits. Cascading tannins frame elegant but apparently bottomless fruit. The wine finishes long with the distinct flavor of Snickers bars. The epitome of power coupled with elegance and breeding. Drink 2020 to 20|what do I care I will be dead|.

Chateau Mouton-Rothschild is a First Growth Bordeaux estate located in the village of Paulliac. The chateau was originally known as Chateau Brane-Mouton while in the possession of the Barons de Brane, but was given its current name by Nathaniel de Rothschild in 1853. The current owner is Philippine de Rothschild, Nathaniel's great-great granddaughter. Mouton-Rothschild is known for being the first estate to initiate complete chateau-bottling in 1924 and for being the only estate from the 1855 classification to be reclassified (upgraded to First Growth in 1973). Mouton's bottles are unique in that each label is designed by a famous artist of the day. This feature makes Mouton-Rothschild especially attractive to collectors. Not to be confused with the grand vin, Mouton also makes a generic Bordeaux called Mouton Cadet, which is dramatically lower in price and highly distributed. The estate also produces a dry Bordeaux Blanc called Ailes d'Argent.

Chateau Mouton-Rothschild is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, with annual production varying between 20-25,000 cases. The vineyards are comprised of gravel on a subsoil of marl and clay. Mouton is one of the last Medoc estates to ferment its wine in oak vats. Maturation is done in new oak casks. Mouton is a complex wine with an exotic character and powerful tannins. The bouquet features black currants, cedar, pencil lead, licorice, and spice. Younger vintages appear opaque or deep purple, while older vintages tend to show more garnet. Some of the best vintages of Mouton-Rothschild include 1945, 1953, 1982, 1986, 1995, 1989 and 2002.

Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
