Description:

Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1986
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
u: seven bottom neck or better, four very top shoulder, one top shoulder, some with light bin abrasions, one with light capsule nicking, and light capsule corrosion to some

"Deep garnet-black colour. An incredible array of aromas on the nose: blackberry, black cherry, tobacco, espresso, leather, black olive and loam. The palate is absolutely seamless from first impression to finish, effortlessly building layers of complexity in the mouth and leading to a very long, earth and spice finish. I can't see how this could possibly be improvement so have no alternative but concede perfection. Drink now to 2045+. Tasted March 2009." Lisa Perotti-Brown for R. Parker, 100 pts. 05/09
12 bottles
