Elaboration of Château Mouton Rothschild 5L 1997
Château Mouton Rothschild 5L 1997 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot)
This wine has a superb colour compared to the maturing wines tasted alongside; it has a dark core, a dense rim, with plenty of red pigment still. This is very impressive. The nose here is divine; it has a very typical profile for the vintage, full of iron and rust, but enticingly perfumed with violets. It kicks off very elegantly on the palate, and it has a wonderful texture, composed rather than showy. It has great style; the tannins and acidity show through and there is plenty of perfumed character as there is on the nose. There is structure and grip, and a fine persistence. This very superb wine, with its reserved character, will go for more than ten years yet. At its apogee this will be truly remarkable.

Reviews of Château Mouton Rothschild 5L 1997
Almost brown edges. You can really feel the vanilla smell. Fleshy. Chocolate coulant taste.

Any meat will suit.
In a tasting course we had the pleasure to try.

A wine with high layer, cherry colour. Smells good of roses. Strong coffee flavour.
