One of the real highlights on the Left Bank, the 2005 Mouton Rothschild is a dark, potent Pauillac. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and leather all take shape in the glass. The 2005 is a dense, powerful and explosive wine endowed with tremendous energy and pure power. The fruit is just starting to emerge, but Mouton remains a very tight, super-classic wine. With time in the glass, some of the natural richness and radiance of the year starts to emerge. Even so, the 2005 is still very young and closed. A few more years in bottle will only be beneficial. Impressive. Tasted two times. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2021)

I’ll chalk this up to bottle variation.

The 2005 Mouton is one heck of a wine. I've been lucky enough to try it a few times and this time was, as always, a treat. The intensity and darkness of it is what I like most. It is ripe, but not too ripe. Rather, just ripe enough to give considerable richness and intensity, yet with perfect poise. I can't wait for the next time.

2000 Mouton was the wine of the night for many including me, 2005 was no slouch and showed very good promise. Dense, layered with full on currants, black cherry, lead pencil and graphite.

2005 - very complex, red and black fruits, harmonious, milk chocolate, coffee, integrated tannic profile. Great stuff. #moutonrothschild #pauillac #firstgrowthbordeaux #bordeaux #wine
