Château Mouton-Rothschild, Ch. Mouton Rothschild, 1997

90 / 100 Robert Parker
Only 55% of the harvest was utilized for the 1997 Mouton-Rothschild. One of the most forward and developed Moutons over recent years, it possesses all the charm and fleshiness this vintage can provide. A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, and an open-knit nose of cedar wood, blackberry liqueur, cassis, and coffee. Fleshy, ripe, and mouth-filling, with low acidity, soft tannin, and admirable concentration and length, this delicious Pauillac will be drinkable in 2-3 years, and should age for 15+. It is an impressive effort for this vintage.

Very good Mouton, but not outstanding; lacks a bit of fruit in the center palate. Good dark ruby color, with lovely mineral, spice and currant aromas. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a light, fruity finish. Drink now through 2003.
17 / 20 Jancis Robinson
A curious wine this, with bottle deposit lining the inside of the bottle and by far the most sediment. Crimson and a relatively light rim. Big, sweet but rather simple, so much so that the acidity is rather showcased. Solid, earthbound, sweet and flattering to the taster but not flattered by being next to the much more engaging, subtler Lafite.
