    Philippe Dhalluin served the 1986 Mouton Rothschild to wrap up our vertical. The 1986 remains one of my favorite Moutons. A dark, powerful wine, the 1986 is endowed with a vertical sense of structure that is a marvel to behold. Dark stone fruit, smoke, graphite, mocha, soy and licorice are fused together in a marvelously intense, deep Mouton that promises to drink well for another few decades. Tonight, the 1986 is absolutely stunning. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Harvest started on October 2nd and wrapped up on the 16th. 99/100 (01.2016)


    Very deep, saturated ruby with only a hint of garnet at the rim. Ripe red and black fruits, mint, vanilla, minerals and delicate black pepper on the captivating nose. Very rich, big and deep, with a luscious texture and ripe flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes smoothly tannic and very long, with building sweetness. This gorgeous Mouton, though massively built, also reflects the long hang time of the berries, which led to a perfect polymerization of its tannins and a fleshy structure. Still very much an infant: I wouldn't touch a bottle for at least another ten years. I also like the fact that, although it's very sweet and creamy, strong acidity (note the lower-than-usual pH) is keeping it vibrant. This vintage is the first in which Mouton vinified its young vines separately and only used those vats judged to be of grand cru quality. Following a slowdown in physiological ripening during August, the late harvest (October 2-16) permitted a longer growing curve. Tourbier noted that "petit verdot needs its head in the sun and its feet in the water, and as it had been initially planted on one of the highest, coolest sites at Mouton, a mistake on our part, it rarely ripened enough to be included in the grand vin, and this explains why we hardly used it in the older vintages." 98+/100 (08.2011)


    Deep garnet-black colour. An incredible array of aromas on the nose: blackberry, black cherry, tobacco, espresso, leather, black olive and loam. The palate is absolutely seamless from first impression to finish, effortlessly building layers of complexity in the mouth and leading to a very long, earth and spice finish. I can’t see how this could possibly be improvement so have no alternative but concede perfection. Drink now to 2045+. 100/100 (05.2009)


    Like the Mouton 1982, a wine prone to taste different depending upon which side of the Channel you drink it. Two quite astoundingly backward bottles tasted in Bordeaux between 2001 and 2003 with think masculine tannins, less flamboyant but perhaps more focused and classical than the 1982. Brilliant wine that I scored an original perfect mark of 25. But subsequently overwhelmed at the Mouton vertical in September 2005. A very deep, almost opaque colour. The nose is reticent at first, then a rush of mint and cedar. Very powerful and intense, almost volatile with a faint hint of boot-polish. The palate is multi-layered with blackberry, cassis and mint. Thick chewy tannins. A more unruly 1986 than the bottle in Bordeaux, with a dark chocolate note on the finish. Seems to have mellowed just a little, but this still needs another 10 years. 98-100 (01.2000)
