Tasting notes:

Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (3rd Edition, January 1998): 90/100

This wine has finally begun to reveal some potential. It has been closed and frightfully tannic for the last decade. The wine exhibits a good dark ruby/garnet color, a sweet nose of cedar, chocolate, cassis, and spices, good ripe fruit and extraction, and a weighty, large-scaled, tannic finish. Although still unevolved, it is beginning to throw off its cloak of tannin and exhibit more complexity and balance. I remain concerned about how well the fruit will hold, but this wine will undoubtedly hit its plateau around the turn of the century.

René Gabriel, Bordeaux Total (2015): 18/20

Mittleres Granat, nur am Rand gewisse Reifetöne zeigend. Leicht erdiger Beginn, aber auch die klassische Moutonsüsse vermittelnd, gibt sich nussig und schokoladig im Untergrund, immer noch gewisse Röstnoten im zweiten Ansatz zeigend. Im Gaumen mit vielen unverdauten, immer noch stark präsenten Tanninen, schöne Malzaromatik im Innern, Peru-Balmnoten. Noch nie hatte ich das Gefühl, dass dieser lange Zeit stumme und verbockte Mouton dann doch noch etwas wird. Und mit «Etwas» meinte ich ein ziemlich grosser, noch zulegender, klassischer Médoc. Sehr lange Dekantieren.

Whether Napoleon III’s infamous Bordeaux Classification of 1855 initiated the one-upmanship between the chateaux of Médoc or simply poured accelerant on it, is moot. The classification, which supposedly ranked the chateaux First through Fifth Growths according to quality, actually ranked them according to the price they fetched at the time. They’ve been jealously watching each other’s pricing ever since.This is especially true in Pauillac, home to three of the five First Growths: Chateaux Latour, Lafite-Rothschild and Mouton Rothschild. Competition amongst them aside, their Cabernet Sauvignon wines have few rivals when it comes to demand, price or, more importantly, ageability. The fact that these wines can be so long-lived increases their already hefty costs over time. Several other significant classified chateaux produce equally top quality wines, including excellent Sauvignon Blanc. Some of these properties benefit from reflected radiance of First Growth proprietorship, but none command quite the same veneration. (vivino)
