The classic Mouton lead-pencil, cedary nose has begun to emerge. This medium dark ruby, elegant, medium-bodied wine will never be a great or legendary Mouton. The flavors are ripe and moderately rich. With good depth and some firm tannins to resolve, this offering from Mouton is bigger and richer than the 1981, 1979, or 1978. Austere by the standards of Mouton and the vintage, the 1983 resembles the Chateau’s fine 1966. Anticipated maturity: Now-2015. Last tasted, 10/90.
Drink Date: 1990 – 2015

This is a forgotten vintage for Mouton. There are pretty aromas of sweet Thai basil along with Asian plums. Full, soft and fruity. You might say it’s almost jammy ? but it’s also so round and gorgeous. Love it now.
