Medium garnet red. Lovely nose with layers of perfume, damp leaves, leather, tobacco and dried cherries. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and medium bodied. Tons of dried red cherries on the palate mixed in with leather, damp forest floor and mushrooms. Long and lingering finish, that still has quite a bit of acidity on the back end. Drink till 2038.

Richness, length, depth, soaring complexity, sweet red currants and blackberry, saddle leather, tobacco, and black truffle and damp earth. Fabulous.

The 2005 Mouton is one heck of a wine. I've been lucky enough to try it a few times and this time was, as always, a treat. The intensity and darkness of it is what I like most. It is ripe, but not too ripe. Rather, just ripe enough to give considerable richness and intensity, yet with perfect poise. I can't wait for the next time.

The 2009 Mouton is modern, cool and stunning. Appropriate therefore that Anish Kapoor designed the label. Smoke, cherry, leather, herbs, tobacco meld together. Rich and yet fresh. Some vanilla and mocha elements come through on the finish. Grippy tannins, this wine has a long way to go.

The 1995 Mouton is just stunning. It's a pretty big wine but has amazing freshness. The season was ripe but the grapes were picked early. Perhaps this contributes to the menthol and sage notes that complement the ripe plums, cherries, leather and tobacco. Structurally it is stunning with soft resolved tannins. The finish is long with all the elements unfolding beautifully. Stunning.

The 2014 Mouton is midweight but packs a punch. Great intensity of fruit, particularly blackberries, but also great freshness too. Mint, minerality pop up just before a spicy finish through which the vibrancy is maintained with the wine's attractive acidity. This wine is pure class. (It's also worth mentioning that the label is by David Hockney, whose Pool just set a record for the most expensive painting ever sold by a living artist, at a mere $90.2m at Christie's in NYC!)

The 2010 Mouton is one of the most delicious and extraordinary wines I've ever tasted. It is utterly beguiling in its intensity and complexity. Sipping a glass will reveal more and more layers over time. It was a little difficult to wrap my head around it initially. Everything is in perfect balance. Purely exquisite. (Interestingly, the label is by Jeff Koons whose Balloon Dog (Orange) just had its record beaten by Hockney (2014 vintage Mouton)'s Pool as the most expensive artwork by a leaving artist.)

Birthday week.. It’s more like Oct 31st-Nov 4th where I’ll pull a few legends from the cellar.
