Wine Critic Reviews:

Graphite, scorched earth, tar, licorice, incense and a host of dark fleshed stone fruits emerge from the 2005 Mouton-Rothschild. Here the overall impression is of pure verticality and structure. Dense, powerful and super-concentrated on the palate, the 2005 is another wine that is just beginning to gradually enter the early part of what looks like a long plateau of fabulous drinking. The tannins have softened, but the flavors remain quite vibrant...

Sokolin 2005 Mouton Rothschild Tasting Notes:

Such vibrant wines are rare. It's like someone gathered the most beautiful memories from their mind and caught them in a bottle, poured some of the most delicious grapes, and kept it for years. The memories continued to flourish until they were ready to come alive in front of a true wine enthusiast who can appreciate all the emotions a single sip can wake up in one's heart.

That's why, when you close your eyes, you can see the French vineyards and sun-kissed leaves and clusters so vividly, as if you could reach with your hand and touch them. This is what the 2005 Mouton Rothschild can do for you.

Impressive at first sight, the deep ruby color looks incredibly inviting so you won't be able to resist it for too long. You may keep the bottle for another decade as it's estimated maturity period won't end anytime soon, but we honestly doubt you want to deprive yourself of this pure satisfaction.

More classic than exotic, the 2005 bottle is quite elegant and very polished, and that becomes very clear the moment you take the first breath upon uncorking it. Super delicious black fruits, intertwined with dashes of smoke and cedar set the stage for the soft texture that will infatuate your taste buds immediately. Black currants, blackberries balanced with just the right amount of acidity, fine tannins, and a long, graceful aftertaste give this Mouton a lovely dash of youth and a noteworthy place in your collection.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Mouton: Chateau Mouton Rothschild is the only one of the first growths to have remained in the ownership of the same family since the classification. The wines were best depicted by Ian D'Agata, one of the leading experts in Italian wine, among others, said Mouton is "opulent, luscious and rich, multi-layered and complex… Rich and ripe but marvelously precise and light on its feet." The Chateau Mouton Rothschild estate includes 205 acres of vines at Pauillac planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (77%), Merlot (11%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%), and it has been used for cultivating vineyards since the early middle ages. The Premier Cru Classe from the Bordeaux region has been the center of the wine business and technical innovations since the early 20th century.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
