STUNNING

It’s been a few years since I tried this wine. In my memory I thought this would have been a big wine, very vanilla driven. Glad to revisit this again after 5 years. Not only it has toned down a lot, it also added a lot more complexity.

I was really impressed with the palate, very broad and very complex, multi-layers of sophistication, great length. Certainly it has improved tremendously compared to the last bottle I had 5 years ago. Kudos to Mouton!

Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1970

  Bok's Rating:

Pauillac · France

TYPE – Red

GRAPES – Cabernet SauvignonCabernet FrancMerlotPinot Noir

DESCRIPTION – Supremely elegant nose displays red fruit aromas with touches of spice. On the palate, a smooth, creamy attack yields powerful, velvet tannins. The roundness is remarkable, giving the wine very attractive length. The finish reveals vanilla and chocolate aromas, with pleasant floral notes. Still great to drink! Last another 10 – 20 years more even!

“I must say something about Mouton 83. When I first had a sip in a blind tasting (from a bottle direct from the chateau), I thought it was so great it was a Mouton 82. The fruit is beefy, good weight & big, bold. Almost like a transformer. The nose is very typical of Pauillac, pencil lead shaving, cigar box, not overpowering. I thought this is a really great Mouton, better than 81 or 85 and even 89. I don’t mind drinking this all day.”

“Even though it was a fantastic Bordeaux vintage, everyone expected the first growth to be singing, it’s very unfortunate Mouton Rothschild 90 was crying. The nose was fabulous, one of the best nose for so many vintages of Mouton I hv drank, but the palette was totally disappointing, started off weak, and gets weaker throughout the night, until it just faded and gone. What a disappointment.”

“The nose was very Pauillac (wine was served blind alongside a Lafite 71), I know it was a Pauillac from the nose, but which was a Mouton and which was the Lafite? Won’t be able to tell it from the nose. Palette will tell u the answer; a typical Mouton normally has abundance of fruits on the palette, whereas Lafite is more subdued & refined, so I was spot on with my guess. It was a good Mouton given the not-so-good vintage, the fruits are worth the drinking evening already.”
