Tasting Notes

Vinous – 89/100

The 2003 Mouton Rothschild has a powerful nose with slightly smudged summer fruit, leather, dates, forest floors and a touch of eucalyptus. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy, with powdery tannins and better acidity than the Clerc Milon. It’s quite tertiary, with just a little VA on the roasted coffee bean finish. The question is whether this will go anywhere interesting with further cellaring? Tasted at the château. [Neal Martin, 08/08/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2032

Robert Parker – 91

The 2003 harvest began on September 15 and finished ten days later. The result is an outstanding 2003 Mouton-Rothschild, but it is not one of the superstars of Pauillac or the Northern Medoc. Its nearby neighbors, Lafite-Rothschild, Cos d’Estournel and Montrose, all produced wines that qualitatively dominate this effort from Mouton-Rothschild. Nevertheless, there is a lot to like. The tannins, which were so tough initially, have softened somewhat, and the nose offers up notes of cedarwood, roasted coffee, tobacco leaf and red and blackcurrants. This spicy, earthy, fleshy, medium to full-bodied 2003 is not one of the stars of the vintage. It is close to full maturity, where it should remain for another 10-15 years. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 26/12/2014]

Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029

Deep garnet. Lots of dried fruit and heading towards Rhône-like aromas but for the cedary overlay. Tannins a little bit tough in relation to the fruit and lacks elegance in its texture and finish. (JH) [21/03/2013]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020
