98 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - August 2011

Deep ruby-red with a hint of amber at the rim.  Cassis, licorice, minerals, tobacco and cocoa on the complex nose; this has started to develop more tertiary aromas and is less fruit-forward than just a few years ago.   The palate shows considerable sweetness and an almost opulent mouth feel, with blackcurrant and blackberry flavors given lift and clarity by harmonious acidity and complicated by graphite, tobacco and underbrush notes.  The extremely long finish features a cool minty note and sweet, ripe tannins, but I also found a hint of astringency at the back that I had not tasted in previous bottles of this wine.  A blockbuster wine, and still remarkably young:  I can see this improving and lasting for another 40 years.  This is a truly monumental wine and the best first growth of 1982, but I found this particular bottle to be a bit less explosive and rich than some other examples I have tried over the years.

Enjoyed a bottle with friends this evening. Was not stored in ideal conditions so was not sure what to expect - it was perfect. This wine has held up well - a delight.
Unbelievable

TN Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 1982 (single blind): Powerful ruby, light brick in the rim, not very dense tears. Nose decent smoky dark fruit, fine toast, bit smoky, green pepper. Medium to plump body, very well balanced, fine velvety smoky tannins. Very long, velvety smoky. Score: 50 + 4 for optic + 14 for bouquet + 19 for taste + 9 for overall = total score of 96
Someday it will be best wine I have.
