Ch. Mouton-Rothschild Pauillac 2005

Cabernet Sauvignon from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 21-Mar-2015
1er Cru, 85% CS, 14% Me, 1% CF Very dark, deep black-red with garnet hues at heart and a little bricking on edge. The bouquet is very deep and solid in concentration, packed with firm savoury dark red plum and blackcurrant fruits. Complexing secondary game, earth and black mineral elements unfold, revealing smoke and toasty oak detail. There is elegance and proportion to the aromatics. Medium-full bodied, the palate has deep and densely concentrated fruit flavours of savoury red plum and dark berry fruits, along with layers of complexing earth and funky game notes. The flavours are entering their secondary phase, but still sweet and lush, with the smoky, toasty oak still evident. The palate had density and a firm core, the tannins grainy and still a little blocky, the grip growing through the mid-palate. The textures and structure, along with soft acidity carry the wine to a long, sustained finish. This Mouton-Rothschild is beginning to develop secondary complexities, but has the structure to age 20+ years. 18.5+/20 Mar 2015 RRP $1,650.00
