Top shoulder fill, cork had a 100% bleed but no signs of seepage under the cap, this was a concern at first. Out of the bottle the fruit was muted and the wine smelled a bit musty. Decanted 4 hours, This wine is dark in color, opaque and browning ever so slightly, the nose has cleaned up a bit from what it was and shows bright, ripe currants, pit of plum, sweet red berry fruit accented by dried herbs, mild Indian spice, dried roses, very exotic in a sense. The palate shows great balance, sweet red berry fruit, medium intensity, soft caressing but persistent tannin. I wish this was a perfect bottle but the cork just did not hold up on this one.

Purchased from Marketplace - no decant. Medium/deep garnet - still vibrant and youthful in appearance. Nose didn't give away very much but typically Mouton fruit and floral notes. In mouth, what struck me was how youthful and fresh this tasted yet showing the balance of a well aged claret. Medium bodied, balanced, refreshing and well defined. This obviously kept evolving in glass and although it didn't disappoint in the least bit, I wasn't blown away. Compared with the 95 which I know well, this is very similar but a step up in balance, structure and expression. The Mouton for Mouton lovers? 50+9+8+20+10=97

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
