My only bottle of 82 Mouton, sadly. This was about as classic a Pauillac as it gets. Hard to believe it is 40 years old as it is sitting somewhere in mid-life. Lovely deep currant fruit, pencil lead, fairly seamless and perfectly balanced tannins and everything else. Will think fondly of this one. — 22 days ago
Pretty good but none dry and needed a little more evolution to show its stuff — a month ago
Only 4 years older than the 82 Mouton but much more evolved (probably due the Merlot). Absolutely hedonistic if you love the really evolved non-fruit flavors of old Bordeaux. Saddle leather, mouthwatering soft older cherry fruit. Would happily drink again but seems doubtful. I’ve had this bottle for quite some time. — 22 days ago
