Tasting Notes:

98 points Wine Enthusiast
This is a powerful and dense wine, with ripe and rich berry fruit notes. It’s balanced, showing strong tannins in harmony with concentrated fruit. It is rich, generous in texture and sure to age well. Barrel Sample: 96-98
95 James Suckling
A warm and delicious Mouton with light spice, currant, and hints of chocolate. Very subtle and refined. Full to medium body. Seamless tannins that dissolve on the finish. Wonderful length for the vintage. 89% cabernet sauvignon, 7% merlot, and 4% cabernet franc. Salty and delicately fruity. Better in 2020 but beautiful now.
93 points Wine Spectator
This delivers a pure, focused beam of cassis right from the start, driving through the finish while light iron, violet, singed apple wood and sweet tobacco notes form the backdrop. Has grip, but delivers more acidity than tannins overall. Though there’s ample depth and power, this remains more sleek in feel. Best from 2018 through 2028.
93 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2013 Mouton Rothschild is the best of the Medoc first-growths in this vintage. It was the smallest crop at Mouton since 1969, even smaller than their 1991. Only 45% of the crop made it into the final blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. One of the few 2013s to reveal serious depth, it displays a dense saturated ruby/purple color along with spicy creme de cassis, licorice and forest floor characteristics. Elegant, medium-bodied and more concentrated than most of its peers, it even reveals some tannins, suggesting 2-5 years of bottle age may be needed. It should last for 15-20 years.Range: 91-93
