International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 103

($625-$795) Saturated dark red. Pure, subtle, highly aromatic nose of currant, cedar, eucalyptus and exotic oak. Wonderfully silky and opulent, with utterly compelling inner-mouth perfume and chewy depth. Showing spectacularly today and hiding its rock-solid underlying structure. The great finish shows extraordinary aromatic complexity and subtlety, along with big, dusty, fine tannins. This wine is a no-brainer: a clear knockout now and capable of going on for another two or three decades.

60th-anniversary vintage. John Huston label. Bright, shaded ruby. More introvert and slightly more brutal than the Cos 1982. Very meaty and solid. Some spice. Sweet start and pretty explosively rich - some definite heat on this. And still a little bit of fine tannin on the finish. Very slightly dusty. Edge of gunpowder. Dramatic rather than fine and ethereal.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker

Opaque purple-colored showing absolutely no signs of lightening, Mouton's 1982 is a backward wine. Still tasting like a 4-5 year old Bordeaux, it will evolve for another half century. At the Philadelphia tasting, it was impossibly impenetrable and closed, although phenomenally dense and muscular. However, on two other recent occasions, I decanted the wine in the morning and consumed it that evening and again the following evening. It is immune to oxidation! Moreover, it has a level of concentration that represents the essence of the Mouton terroir as well as the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon it contains. Cassis, cedar, spice box, minerals, and vanillin are all present, but this opaque black/purple Pauillac has yet to reveal secondary nuances given its youthfulness. It exhibits huge tannin, unreal levels of glycerin and concentration, and spectacular sweetness and opulence. Nevertheless, it demands another decade of cellaring, and should age effortlessly for another seven or eight decades. I have always felt the 1982 Mouton was perfect, yet this immortal effort might be capable of lasting for 100 years! Readers who want to drink it are advised to decant it for at least 12-24 hours prior to consumption. I suggest double decanting, i.e., pouring it into a clean decanter, washing out the bottle, and then repouring it back into the bottle, inserting the cork, leaving the air space to serve as breathing space until the wine is consumed 12-24 hours later. The improvement is striking. The fact that it resists oxidation is a testament to just how youthful it remains, and how long it will last.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Glorious aromas. Dark ruby red. Wonderful perfumes of flowers, berry and lilac. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long and pretty finish. Balanced. Class in a glass. Just as I remember.--Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.

Absolute classic that is drinking at its peak right now. Fruity, lively, deep soft tannins and a smooth lasting finish. Beautiful. Take 1980s Mouton over the Lafite just about any day.

Needs minimum 2 hours of air after decanting before it begins to show its complexity. A refined wine with silk and perfume in the mouth. Beautiful currant nose. Aftertaste is monumental. Tannins are refined and the wine seems soft at first but but turns to wow with air.
