2003 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1er Cru Classe Pauillac
|Date tasted:||12 April 2006|
|Price when tasted:||N/A UK|
(1st growth) Fine Cabernet fruit, and intense without heaviness. Good fruit with decent depth, well-rounded tannins and fair acidity. Great balance and length. Drink 2011-26.
Tight, clear, plum fruit bouquet. Refined palate fruit, good lines and flow. Has a really pretty, suave texture. Good length. Drink up to 2012.
Huge colour, big smoky nose, really seductive and opulent on the palate, tannins that fill the mouth, yet remain finely grained, will be an explosion of fruit as it matures, with a firm Cabernet edge and great freshness. 2010-30.
