1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild - Magnum Large Format - 100 Points 150cl
A magnum bottle of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1982 from Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation, featuring a label by John Huston (1906-1987). This was released to celebrate Baron Philippe's 60th harvest.
'The 1982 Mouton-Rothschild has now arrived in late adolescence as well, reaching that plateau where it is close to full maturity, but will possibly last another 25-30+ years. This wine has always been one of the most decadent, luxuriously rich and great wines that along with the Latour is the top first-growth in the Médoc. The wine still has a dense purple color, a beautiful sweet nose of crème de cassis, spring flowers, forest floor and a touch of cedar wood. It is a beauty, full-bodied and probably closest in style and quality to their famous 1959, which has always eclipsed the more renowned 1961 in tastings. 100 points' Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, August 2016
