Tasting Notes Mouton Rothschild 1996

95

Tasted several times in recent months, this is a great Mouton, perhaps the finest of the decade. It has a straight down the line, classic graphite tinged nose with plenty of black fruit to go round, the sous-bois and cedar element unfurling with each swirl of the glass. The palate is still youthful after 16 years with firm, slightly rigid tannins that require another couple of years to soften. It is an upright, rather aristocratic Mouton with a reserved, aloof and yet compelling finish. Quintessential Pauillac, one that deserves a little more time in the cellar. Tasted November 2012.

Fabulous on the nose with aromas of currants, cedar, sweet tobacco, incense, and flowers. Full-bodied, with very fine silky tannins and similar flavors as the aromas. A slightly green undertone on the palate. Drink now. Decant an hour before serving.

This estate's staff believes that the 1996 Mouton-Rothschild is very complex. I agree that among the first-growths, this wine is showing surprising forwardness and complexity in its aromatics. It possesses an exuberant, flamboyant bouquet of roasted coffee, cassis, smoky oak, and soy sauce. The impressive 1996 Mouton-Rothschild offers impressive aromas of black currants, framboise, coffee, and new saddle leather. This full-bodied, ripe, rich, concentrated, superbly balanced wine is paradoxical in the sense that the aromatics suggest a far more evolved wine than the flavors reveal. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030. By the way, the 1996 blend consists of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc.
