The 2004 Mouton-Rothschild was the first vintage for Philippe Dhalluin, who was so successful in persuading the late Philippine de Rothschild to institute a more strict selection with respect to Mouton-Rothschild. The outstanding 2004 exhibits delicious notes of cedarwood, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrants and toast. The wine possesses outstanding concentration, medium to full body, excellent purity, hints of forest floor and underbrush, and sweet, velvety tannin. It is on a fast evolutionary track, so consume this over the next 10-15 years.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #216, Dec 2014)
Tasted at Bordeaux Index annual 10-year on tasting from an ex-château bottle. The Château Mouton-Rothschild 2004 has a refined, much more understated bouquet compared to say, Château Margaux. It is taciturn at first but with encouragement it reveals vibrant black cherries, tobacco, sage and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry. There is fine freshness to this Mouton, though it does not have the depth or ambition of a top vintage. But it has a sense of classicism that runs from start to finish, with subtle notes of espresso infusing the finish. Fine. Tasted March 2014.
Dark red, brick-edged; a rich, cedary, early bouquet; very nicely balanced medium full Mouton with a fresh acidity and fine grained tannin; long and even to taste, with plenty of crisply ripe blackcurrant fruit, a gentle underlying minerality and excellent fruit and aroma length. A lovely Mouton, with a deliciously ripe fruit core within the vintage. Acessible already, real harmony to come. Now – 2030+ [M Schuster March 2014]
This shows lots of mulled spice, warm tobacco leaf and well-roasted cedar accents, but isn't short on fruit, offering enticing layers of red currant, plum and blackberry confiture. The long finish is riddled with sweet smoke, black tea and iron notes. A gorgeous wine from an overlooked vintage.--Non-blind Mouton-Rothschild vertical (March 2017). JM
I drank this 2004 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild the other night at home with some wine producers. I decanted it only right before serving - a mistake made while concentrating on the cooking food. On the nose there were coffee and chocolate aromas with hints of vanilla. It was super fruity, and its medium body was coupled with beautifully soft tannins. This is just coming around now and it's very New World in style. Overall, a much overlooked vintage from Mouton.
