First tasted in October 2002 when the nose was only really just beginning to open up. The quality and its ravishing opulence was instantly apparent. Clos and surly when tasted the following year. Then from a double magnum in May 2004. A pure Pauillac nose of pencil-lead and cedar - very fragrant and well-defined. The palate is more backward than the Pichon Baron. Well-knot, harmonious, elegant and minerally. Wonderful fresh acidity. Very similar to Lynch Bages 1989 but with more complexity and nuance. Superb. Drink from 2012. Finally in September 2004: a beautiful "Mouton" nose with pencil-lead, charcoal and green pepper. Very intense and reserved. The palate is quite tannic and masculine with good acidity. Still tight. Less weight than Latour or Margaux and lacks the complexity of Lafite 1989. But I have had better examples of Mouton 1989 that showed a more depth and complexity.

Let the birthday celebrations begin! Lovely claret with modest brett and noticeable VA. Juniper berry, green apple, peppercorn. Definitely in the ballpark.

Lovely Mouton still young and needs time to open up. Deep dark red, this iconic Bordeaux blend is rich elegant and tempting. Aromas of black current, chocolate, coffee, and spicy wood, all blend into a full bodied elegant rich wine, with lovely robust round tannins, splendid with layers of fruit and taste. Long chewy rich finish that stays with you almost 30 min after you finish your glass. The wine was still tight and needed time to open up, through a bit of sediments. My score 91, drink to 2024
