Bottled in June, 1997, this profound Mouton is more accessible than the more muscular 1996. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 19% Merlot, it reveals an opaque purple color, and reluctant aromas of cassis, truffles, coffee, licorice, and spice. In the mouth, the wine is "great stuff," with superb density, a full-bodied personality, rich mid-palate, and a layered, profound finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. There is outstanding purity and high tannin, but my instincts suggest this wine is lower in acidity and slightly fleshier than the brawnier, bigger 1996. Both are great efforts from Mouton-Rothschild. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.

This bottle of Mouton ’95 was surprisingly disjointed on the nose and seemed to be cowering next to the ’96. The herbaceous element was more pronounced than anticipated, some lovely hot gravel and stony scents but missing the breeding of the following vintage. The palate is better with blackcurrant, cedar, graphite and slightly coarse tannins. This is like a car that cannot get out of second gear and yet, it seems like a very nice automobile. I would like to taste this again but on this showing, go ’96. Tasted February 2011.
