Robert Parker 95-96
The 2021 Mouton Rothschild is a terrific wine in the making, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cherries and wild berries mingled with notions of violets, espresso roast, pipe tobacco and mint. Medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, it’s a layered, enveloping wine that’s ample and concentrated, with succulent acids, melting tannins and a long, resonant finish. A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc that attained 13.1% alcohol, this is a demonstrative, sensual Mouton that’s the fruit of extreme selection, and that may well make my score seem conservative with further elevage. Bravo to the talented Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy and his team.
