Tasting Notes

Vinous – 94

The 2001 Mouton-Rothschild contains 20% vin de presse and 12.6° alcohol. It has a vibrant, captivating bouquet that explodes from the glass with precocious black cherries, sous-bois, mint and a touch of Seville oranges, displaying precision and class. The medium-bodied palate shows good density and offers sappy black fruit, white pepper and just a touch of tobacco. Quite muscular for a 2001, and perhaps missing the clarity and pixelation that the next winemaker, Philippe Dhalluin, subsequently imparted. This is a thoroughly enjoyable Mouton-Rothschild, even if it is not the same pedigree as recent vintages. [Neal Martin, 22/09/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2055

JancisRobinson.com – 17.5

Magnum served at Michael Broadbent’s Cavendish Dinner at Brooks’s, along with the Mouton 2007 and Ch Margaux 1961. Very dark. Cooler and fresher than the 2007 – perhaps the magnum effect? Quite marked acidity. This would have been made before Philippe Dhalluin arrived. Just a little short of flesh.  [09/11/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2013-2032

Robert Parker – 94

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has another outstanding bouquet with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow, graphite and a touch of orange peel. Great delineation and vigour, a little more generous than Lafite that overtakes after an hour in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, superb acidity, great depth but perhaps just missing the persistency and vigour of the Lafite. Great mineralite on the tobacco and autumn leaf-finish. Tasted March 2011. [Neal Martin, 01/03/2011]
