Chateau Mouton Rothschild, a Premier Cru Class e from the Bordeaux region and one of the world's greatest wines, is owned by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild. The estate includes 205 acres of vines at Pauillac planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (77%), Merlot (11%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%).
The wine has a fine, deep color, almost black with a purple-violet tint, and an open, complex nose. Red fruit aromas predominate (redcurrant, cherry liqueur, bilberry), alongside slightly floral notes of lily and violet together with fine vanilla. From a full, firm attack with plenty of heft and substance, the body builds on mature, silky, creamy tannins, with intense flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry and spice with a hint of cinnamon. The finish, powerful, substantial and long, reveals all the expressiveness and distinction of a great Mouton Rothschild, reminiscent in its richness and elegance of the very fine 1986 vintage.
96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Perhaps the most beautiful packaging ever on a Bordeaux bottle, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild literally produced a work of art in the gold-engraved bottle of 2000 Mouton Rothschild. Of course, one can't drink the glass, but this is a top-flight Mouton Rothschild, eclipsed only by the 2006 and 2009. A rich, tannic, earthy style, with loads of creme de cassis and floral notes, the final blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot is a full-bodied wine with plenty of coffee, earth, chocolatey notes, and still plenty of tannin to resolve.
