    Château Mouton-Rothschild 2000
    Pauillac, 1er cru classé
    Offered in an original wooden case
    Tasting note: Impressive cask sample in March 2001, impressive but not as exotic as the 1989 or 1990 at a similar stage. Two notes within two months of each other. Although deep, the most mature looking of the first-growth Médocs; fully evolved, distinct, ‘mocha’, chocolaty, lovely but ‘unclassic’ Mouton nose; dry, very flavoury, touch of vanilla, crisp Cabernet Sauvignon taste, quite a bite. Last tasted Oct 2005 **(***) 2010 – 2025. MB
    11 bottles per lot
