Wine Details



Wine Description

(From 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.

Winemaker's Notes

Luscious black currant flavored Cabernet fruit makes Mouton beguilingly easy to drink. Rich Complex flavors, powerful ripe tannins and an extremely long finish are all hallmarks of this wine.

    Tasted by Ernoid on 2/11/2012 & rated 96 points: Had it along with a vertical of 2000, 88, 82 and 86. This was the most impressive of them all despite having decanted the 2000 for more than 2 hrs. 88 was number two on my list, while the 82 and 86 were flattening pretty quick. Perhaps the 2000 was simply too young. 90 was complex and fullest in body if thats your style. (1713 views)

    (From 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.

    (From 1987 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Deep plum red; sweet oaky nose; medium-bodied, soft, oaky, easy tannins, polished, reasonable depth of flavour, well judged oak, could do with more concentration; medium length.
