Last night we visited Samhoudt places, a 2 star Michelin restaurant in Amsterdam with small and really surprising dishes in their tasting menu. For the## meat course we brought the still underrated Mouton Rothschild 2002. Almost black colored, very impressive nose, fruit (cassis) bursts from the glass, mint, eucalyptus, wood, spices.
A very concentrated wine, tasting it is overwhelming, with clear Cabernet, mocca, vanilla and very elegant and integrated tannins. Top line Mouton in such a "classic" vintage, will improve as it just started to get in its best phase. BOW 9.
We still have several bottles available at our website
