Tasting Note:

The Mouton range was an absolute delight to taste this year. Philippe Dhalluin and his team have produced some sumptuous, lavishly fruited wines that are texturally very alluring. Mouton in particular was much more open and fragrant than normal. Aromas of Asian spice, crème de cassis, potpourri, graphite, truffle, black cherry and menthol waft from the glass. Usually Mouton at this stage is reserved and required considerable coaxing to evaluate its aromatics. The palate is also more forthcoming than we are used to. Swathes of charming, seductive fruit cascade over the palate. Texturally this is like pure cashmere with gorgeous, opulent tannins and a pure crème de cassis finish. Excellent.
