#ChateauMoutonRothschild #1982 Beautiful Garnet color with gorgeous salmon rim. Color does not give away its age to this level. Smokey, Dark Plum, Prune & Floral nose. Layers and layers of flavor unveiled as it opens up over the next hour and a half. Red Cherry, Cranberry, Prune, Black Plum, Tobacco, Clove spice, Salty, Savory, herbal, Sage, Green Bell Pepper, Toasted Chili Flakes, Potpourri, a touch of Madagascar Vanilla... Good acidity, mellow Tannins, very smooth and graceful with a medium plus finish that you just don't want to let go of! Love, Love, Love her!👏👏👏👏

Well, as expected this was basically perfection. Impossible to explain the complexity of the black and dried fruit. Lead and distinct turned earth notes. Lengthiest finish i may have ever experienced. Goes on forever. Loved it!

Such an amazing wine. Red and black fruit both ripe and dried characteristics. Strong bell pepper but perfectly integrated with the oak and secondary notes.
