Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Mouton-Rothschild offers classic tobacco and cigar box aromas on the nose, very well defined with black fruit unfolding in the glass. Again, like the bottle at the vertical in May last year, there is an element of Pessac-Léognan on the nose, just a hint of warm gravel. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite compact with a foursquare finish of blackberry, tobacco and a pinch of white pepper. Sure, it is shorter than most recent vintages, but I can see this aging with style. Tasted February 2017.-NM

A prime example of a lesser year hitting its stride, as 2007 was markedly cooler than normal after June. This is very expressive, with perfumy black tea, singed alder and smoldering tobacco notes leading the way for a core of gently mulled plum and black cherry fruit. Shows pretty cedar accents through the finish, with a menthol backdrop.—Non-blind Mouton-Rothschild vertical (March 2017). Drink now through 2031.-JM

The 2007 Mouton Rothschild is a gorgeous wine, especially within the context of the vintage. Open, expressive aromatics and forward fruit make the 2007 an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next two decades or so. Although the 2007 is not an epic Mouton, it is without question one of the best recent vintages for current drinking. Smoke, tobacco, cedar and licorice add the closing shades of nuance. Warm weather resulted in an unusually early start to the growing season. Summer was not especially warm, but a hot, dry September pushed the raisins through the final phase of ripening. The blend is 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot. Harvest took place between September 26 and October 11.-AG
