Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1986 Pauillac - 100 Points 75cl / 12.5%
A bottle of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1986 from Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
'Still tasting like a barrel sample, the 1986 Mouton Rothschild is a monumental Bordeaux that will undoubtedly outlive anybody alive today. Amazingly youthful, with a dense purple color, it is an extraordinary wine that should age for a century or more. Tasted blind, I would have guessed it to be a 2-3 year old first-growth Bordeaux. 100 points' Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, 2006
