Wine Description

(1982 Vintage) This has always been one of the wines of the vintage. Harmonious and beautifully structured. Brilliant ruby color, with a hint of garnet. A bounty of cherry, tobacco and cedar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and tannic, with velvety texture and medium finish.

    (1994 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Very deep red; hefty new oak nose, opulent fruit, classic; very rich, sleek, has good concentration and depth, hefty tannins and a bit chunky, but not without elegance; good length, tannic finish.

    (1982 Vintage) On the surface, Mouton is often less complicated than the other firsts. Its glamorous oak scent and flashy cassis concentration are easily matched by several ambitious second-growth Pauillacs. The greatness of Mouton lies deeper, and it shows most prominently in a Cabernet vintage like rsquo;96. The vines stand in a deep sea of small stones, a gravel plateau as difficult to walk upon as a sand dune. Cabernet loves these stones and grows grapes that come about as close to the essential flavor of the variety as seems possible. Mouton is a pure, perfectly articulates Cabernet as a Shaker chair is a pure, essential and perfect chair.
