Product Notes:
Luscious black currant flavored Cabernet fruit makes Mouton beguilingly easy to drink. Rich Complex flavors, powerful ripe tannins and an extremely long finish are all hallmarks of this wine.

critical acclaim: "Bright red with a pale rim. Knockout nose of aromatic herbs, strawberry, sweet spices and acacia flower; yet another wine strongly marked by its cabernet franc presence. Fresh and vibrant, this absolutely dances on the palate with strawberry, sour red cherry and raspberry flavors complicated by gunflint and herbs. High acidity provides great clarity and cut to the long, floral, smoothly tannic finish. This has improved considerably with bottle age. Harvested from September 18 through October 3, this Mouton offers amazing balance and fragrance. In 1990 Mouton was still using a heavy toast for its barriques, which resulted in a smoky quality in the wines that was considered by many to be just as typical of Mouton as its opulence." 94 Points International Wine Cellar



"Mouton wines are quintessentially Pauillac, curiously closer in style to Latour, on the other side of the commune, than to its near neighbour and long time rival, Lafite. There is a similar concentrated, blackcurrant bouquet, and flavour combined with a richness and opulence that disguises the tannin more than at Latour." David Peppercorn, Master of Wine

“The estate was difficult to understand, producing superb wines as well as a number of mediocre vintages, particularly for a 1st Growth. But since the mid 1990’s it has asserted itself with the rich, dense opulent style that characterizes the mythical Moutons such as the 1982, 1959, 1947 and 1945." Robert Parker
