This is still youthful in appearance of dark ruby color. It sets an excellent example for the 1994 vintage with a spicy, toasty nose showing lots of blackcurrants and tar. It’s full-bodied, refined and chewy. (3/2015)
91 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 1994 appears to be the finest Mouton-Rothschild made following the 1986 and before the 1995’s conception. The wine exhibits a dense, saturated purple color, followed by a classic Mouton nose of sweet black fruits intermingled with smoke, pain grillee, spice, and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, with outstanding concentration, a layered feel, plenty of tannin, and rich, concentrated fruit, this wine is similar to the fine 1988. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. By the way, the Dutch artist, Appel, has created a gorgeous label for the 1994. Although Mouton-Rothschild can be among the most inconsistent first-growths, when this estate gets everything right, the wine can be as compelling as any produced in Bordeaux. (RP) (2/1997)
