A graceful Pauillac, not showy as Mouton can be in a great year, but complete. The texture is lovely, the fruit creating a savory balance of red currant, bee pollen and blacker tones, dynamic on a small scale. The succulence of the fruit shows its breed; this will probably be best eight to ten years from the vintage.

Seemingly New World in its satin-textured ripeness of fruit, yet underneath the '95 Mouton has the stubborn and stolid structure of a young Pauillac. Tough black tannins mask the precise fruit character, and though the wine is huge in scale, it doesn't yield much of itself. Mouton is usually flashier on release, but for now, this vintage is quite backward. And it goes without saying, this is a wine for long-term aging.

In a rainy harvest, there are the people who panic and pick while the fruit is still diluted, and the people who wait. With a fine terroir, waiting is often the best defense against the weather. And by the smell of the '94 Mouton, these are the people who waited. The wine shows a super maturity straight through. It's filled with potent, luscious, roasted fruit flavors. New oak boosts the richness further with caramelized sweetness. The wine is quite pretty, but it lacks the extra dimension of a first in this vintage.

Full ruby-red. Explosive, superripe aromas of black raspberry, currant, graphite and tobacco leaf. Outsized, opulent and generous; this big boy saturates the entire mouth. There's an almost exotic character to the plum and cedar flavors. Spreads out impressively on the back end, coating the palate with ripe tannins. The 2006 is at once finer and more powerful, with more noble tannins, but this is more opulent.
