Lot 123 Details
CHATEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1982

Pauillac.

This wine remains one of the legends of Bordeaux. It has thrown off the backward, youthful style that existed during its first 25 years of life, and over the last 4-5 years has developed such secondary nuances as cedar and spice box. The creme de cassis, underlying floral note, full-bodied power, extraordinary purity, multilayered texture, and finish of over a minute are a showcase for what this Chateau accomplished in 1982. The wine is still amazingly youthful, vibrant, and pure. It appears capable of remaining fruity and vibrant in 2082! Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050+ Drink: 2015-2050 WA 100

1 bt.    per lot $1,800 - $2,000
