Description :

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.

Château Mouton Rothschild

Château Mouton Rothschild Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac  

The Mouton vineyards incorporate 75 hectares of typical gravelly soil over a base of sand, clay, marl and limestone. They are situated on a mound or motte approximately at an altitude of 40m, dizzying heights for the flat and undulating land of the Medoc.

It is widely thought that motte is the origin of the name Mouton, the local Bordeaux dialect seemingly includes as many words for mound, hill or hillock as there fish in the Gironde. It does not derive, as some rather unkind individuals have postulated, from the French for sheep, mouton, although this might be suggested by the grazing pasture that abuts the estate. The vines are 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, planted at a density of 8 500 hectares, with an admirable average age of around 50 years.

There is also Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle, for the estate’s white wine. Once harvested, fermentation is in 225 hectolitre vats of wood, with a maceration of 15 to 25 days. Then comes up to 22 months in oak before bottling. The grand vin is Chateau Mouton-Rothschild, of which there are 25 000 cases per annum, and the second wine Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild, introduced with the 1993 vintage (although the name Petit Mouton was only introduced the following year), and produced in only small quantities.

The white wine, Aile d’Argent, is predominantly Sauvignon Blanc sourced from a four hectare vineyard, and again produced in small quantities, typically 1200 cases per annum.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 89 points
"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. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025+." (Jun 2004)

"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. Best after 2009." (May 2004)

Stephen Tanzer : 91 points
"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." (Jun 2004)

Quarin : 92 points
"Robe rouge sombre, bordeaux, aux reflets noirs. Le nez est net, d’intensité moyenne à bonne, fin, fruité, avec des touches de rhum, de bois, d’épices et de cassis. A l’agitation le nez est net, intense, fin et très fruité. Le vin se développe tout en fruits et avec un grand respect de la pulpe. Néanmoins ferme et tanique mais toujours sans cesse gras, il se montre très savoureux, plutôt tendre et plutôt en pulpe pour un Mouton. Ici, pas de rudesse tanique en finale. Belle longueur savoureuse sur un corps fondant." (2003)
