The wine has an intense garnet hue with glittering highlights. All the depth and refinement of Cabernet Sauvignon is expressed on the nose in aromas of vanilla, bitter almond and nutmeg, with subtle mineral notes on airing. Very supple on the palate, this Mouton Rothschild displays perfect harmony on a linear structure that combines tannic heft with a pleasant minty freshness. The finish is complex, ending on spicy and very ripe fruit flavours. A great success for the vintage, the blend makes the most of two fully mature grape varieties, combining the body and complexity of Cabernet with the depth of flavour of Merlot.

Wine EnthusiastThe wood element is important here, but it is based on a firm Cabernet Sauvignon structure, dry but rich tannins. The wine is a great success for the vintage, giving sweetness, ripe fruit that only shows light extraction, and dark plum and berry flavors. The feeling is of polished fruit and wood, rounded but always dense.

Wine SpectatorFocused and rich, showing blueberry, blackberry and dark licorice aromas, with hints of mineral and flowers. Full-bodied, with a seamless core of fruit and tannins. Long and caressing on the finish. Best after 2013.

Wine AdvocateComposed of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, the deep purple-colored 2007 Mouton reveals sweet aromas of creme de cassis, subtle oak, and flowers. Medium to full-bodied and elegant with sweet tannin as well as flavors and a texture that build incrementally on the palate, this strong effort should evolve over the next 15 years.
