Product Description

"Flamboyant – so perfumed with  classic blackcurrant, blackberry and beautiful classy cedar wood. Clean. Expressive too.  Fleshy and mouth-filling with a beautiful perfume, and wow! , they’ve pulled out a nice one this year! Lavish oak, flickers of varietal capsicum, thick and dense with remarkable length. Time please. Amazing."
98 Points Gary Walsh, Wine Front

"The 2005 Mouton Rothschild will have to take a back seat to the prodigious 2006, but administrator Philippe Dalhuin deserves considerable credit for pushing Mouton to higher quality levels over recent years. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot, the dark purple-hued 2005 exhibits a restrained but promising nose of cedar, tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, and toasty oak. Full-bodied, tannic, and extremely backward, with the vintage’s tell-tale acidity, it appears to be even more closed in the bottle than it was from barrel. It does possess a long finish and multilayered mouthfeel. This is an undeniably outstanding, yet restrained, shy wine for a Mouton Rothschild. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040+"

"Dark purple black in color. Complex aromas of mineral, licorice, lead pencil and blackberry follow through to a full body, with ultrafine tannins and a caressing, pretty finish. Has a lovely texture. Shows elegance and refinement. Best after 2012."
