Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
100

A consistent 100-point wine (only because my point scale stops at that number), the 1945 Mouton-Rothschild is truly one of the immortal wines of the century. This wine is easily identifiable because of its remarkably exotic, over-ripe, sweet nose of black fruits, coffee, tobacco, mocha, and Asian spices. It is an extraordinarily dense, opulent, and rich wine, with layers of creamy fruit, behaveing more like a 1947 Pomerol than a structured, powerful, and tannic 1945. The wine finishes with a 60+ second display of ripe fruit, extract, and sweet tannin. This remarkably youthful wine (only light amber at the edge) is mindboggling! Will it last another 50 years? Last tasted 8/97.

An deep garnet/mahogany colour: it looks half its age. The nose completely blew me away: that tell-tale scent of eucalyptus there in all its glory. Brilliant definition and vigor, a touch of fig and clementines. Amazingly fresh. The palate is very complex and protean, constantly evolving in the glass. Powerful, ambitious, bold - this must have been tannic in its youth. Very difficult to describe in words, but its just the balance, the effortless and confidence of this wine that makes it unique. Perfection. Tasted September 2005.
