Marks and reviews
For their grand 2000 vintage, Chateau Mouton Rothschild broke with their tradition of seeking famous painters to create a label for their latest release. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild replaced the painted label with an enamelled illustration of the gold-encrusted Augsburg Ram from the Chateau’s own Museum of Wine in Art. The garnet wine offers lovely complexity, with prune, fruit jam, fern, and woodland fragrances. The palate carries volume, fat, and a full attack, with caressing round and thick tannins. The fleshy and powerful finish shows stamina; following along the lines of Mouton Rothschild greatest vintages. Resembling the exceptional 1986 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, this Pauillac wine also shows great ageing potential.
