Mouton Rothschild 2002
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
