The 1982 Mouton Rothschild also comes across as muted and lacking in expression. Time in the glass is of no help. This is a perplexing showing.
The John Houston label. Extremely dense blackish garnet. Some evolution at the rim. Really intense, complex and spicy on the nose – very Mouton! Rich and balsam. Masses of density on the palate and still some tannin in evidence. Gunmetal. A really slow burner.
Anticipated maturity: 2000-2040
