Tasting Note:

Whilst this does have a rather regal bouquet with exotically spiced notes of wood and perfumed fruit, it lacks the precision and stature of Lafite. It is a large scale wine with an impressive attack, but not the clearest expression of fruit. It is certainly not one of the great vintages from this wonderful Chateau, but we will give it the benefit of the doubt - Mouton is always one of the most introspective and challenging wines to read when young. The core and guts of the wine seem to be hiding. There is however lots of length although the flavours rather bleed into one another; there is certainly more than enough flesh to cover the tannins, so there is no danger of this drying out or being overworked. Our guess is that we caught this juvenile Mouton in a fractious mood and after elevage it will be rather more harmonious. 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc.
