The rich, complex, well-developed bouquet of oriental spices, toasty oak, herbs, and ripe fruit is wonderful. On the palate, the wine is also rich, forward, long, and sexy. It ranks behind both Haut-Brion and Chateau Margaux in 1985. I am surprised by how evolved and ready to drink this wine is. Readers looking for a big, boldly constructed Mouton should search out other vintages, as this is a tame, forward, medium-weight wine that is close to full maturity. It is capable of lasting another 15+ years. This estate compares their 1985 to their 1959, but to me it is more akin to their 1962 or 1953. Last tasted, 10/97.

Surprisingly elegant, with lovely tobacco, cherry and berry aromas that blossom on the palate. Moderately soft tannins and a sweet, fruity finish. All finesse and ready to drink.--Cabernet Challenge.

This wine is a bargain compared to the current release and what a wine. From the rich ruby color to the quintessential Claret aroma to the perfectly blended tanins and fruit, bring it out for your special occasions.

As you all know, I do not drink this wine. I only collect the art work and that is all I have to say. Why are the snobs to critical to rate this wine? What is it about Mouton-Rothschild that makes the so called experts so scared as to rate this wine/ THIS IS VERY GOOD AND i AM NOT JUST TOTETING IT SO.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
