Robert Parker 93 - Aromas of grilled bread, creme de cassis, and vanillin jump from the glass of this opaque purple-colored effort. Exhibiting an admirable mid-palate, stuffing, and fatness, low acidity, and ripe, sweet tannin, this will be one of the more forward, seductive Moutons produced over the last two decades. As the wine sat in the glass, notes of new saddle leather, coconut, and smoke emerged. This should be an uncommonly precocious, delicious Mouton-Rothschild upon release, yet it will last for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.
