Tasted blind. Reddish scarlet color. Odd nose with notes like roseste and asian tea that led me to think this was Italian. Rustic with chicory notes that come on. Good wine, but the lowest performer of the 45/59/61/82/86 Moutons we were treated to tonight.

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.

The 1982 Mouton-Rothschild continues to be the extravagant Pauillac that it has always been. This has an irresistible, exotic bouquet of precocious kirsch, hoisin, graphite and blueberry scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is a little headier than previous bottles, sensual and almost glossy, presenting a glycerin-rich smorgasbord of dark cherries, black currant, crème de menthe and mint that almost knocks you off your feet. Fabulous. Tasted from an ex-château jeroboam at the Palace of Versailles charity dinner. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2019)

#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.
