Tasting Note:

This is not a typically, brooding, monumental Mouton. Produced from 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, there is a charm and delicacy to the 2012 Mouton. Notes of liquorice, fine herbs, dandelions, stoney minerals, cèpe, forest fruits, anise, kirsch and cinnamon come after a little coaxing. The palate at first seems a little understated, but there is a lot of underlying power and concentration. Flavours build to a hedonistic crescendo, with layer upon layer of classic Pauillac aromas: cigar box, cassis and cut flowers. There are very persistent, long, slightly wild, expansive flavours and svelte, sexy tannins. A hugely impressive wine.
