2003 Ch. Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

Ch. Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac
Warm, ripe and seductive on the nose, this glorious Mouton is rich and plump on the palate, with dense, sweet concentrated fruit. I'd be happy to drink this gorgeous wine now but I'd imagine as 1947 and 1949 were also very hot years, this will be rewarding for a number of years to come. Drink now to 2020.

Ch. Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac
Backward, powerful, and extremely tannic, the dense purple-colored 2003 Mouton-Rothschild, a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, fashioned from yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare, with a finished alcohol of 12.9%, improves dramatically with aeration. With full-bodied, meaty, powerful, dry flavors as well as a huge finish, this high class wine should be at its finest between 2012-2040+. During its sojourn in barrel, it reminded me of a hypothetical blend of the 1982 and 1986 Moutons, but since bottling, it appears different, and even more tannic than those two vintages. I still believe the finest recent Mouton-Rothschild is the 2000.

Tasted at the Claret Club Mouton-Rothschild dinner. The 2003 is beginning to really come out of its shell. It has a lifted, well defined bouquet with cassis and blueberry fruit, a touch of liquorice developing with time. The palate is full-bodied with a fleshy, glossy entry, quite ostentatious in style with touches of date and graphite, yet nicely balanced on the finish. Very fine.
