    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a lovely, deep, garnet red color and a nose which, though not yet fully open, reveals attractive fruit (cherry, raspberry) with airing, enfolded in the roast coffee, tobacco and spice notes of refined oak. Unctuous on the palate and amazingly supple, it mingles forward tannins, firm but mature, with consummately elegant flavors – caramel, vanilla, mocha, blackberry, wild berry fruit – that ooze charm. The finish, expansive and full of character, expresses all the richness of this very attractive vintage.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very smoky, with berry, coffee and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied, with polished velvety tannins, plenty of fruit and a cedary aftertaste. Tight and compacted. This is better than the 2000 Mouton. It's a baby 1986 Mouton. Solid and very, very fine. Persists for a long time on the palate. Best after 2009.

    Good full ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, mint and minerals. Juicy but quite tightly wound today; much more austere than the comparatively pliant Clerc-Milon-not to mention firmer and less fleshy than it appeared from barrel a year ago. Juicy acidity contributes to the impression of structure. Unlike most 2001s, this seems already to have gone into a shell. This penetrating, mostly cabernet sauvignon Mouton will need at least a decade of bottle aging.
