i've had only one glass of this wine, but i've got one in my cellar which i plan to drink probably sometime in 2016 or later! it seemed a massive wine from my one glass, and focused, deep, very long. but my thought was I'll bet this isn't even close to its apogee and deserves to be cellared for another 10 or so to reach its full maturity

What a gem. The 1986 Mouton was gorgeous the last time I had it. Big and bold, yet the tannins had acquired a softness that was downright voluptuous. The 1985 was also showing well. Overall lighter and more fruit-driven up front, but a real treat also.

Another gem from an exceptional vintage in Pauillac.

Wine Advocate ReviewAfter stumbling over some wines I thought were high class Bordeaux, I nailed this wine in one of the blind tastings for this article. In most tastings where a great Bordeaux is inserted with California Cabernets, the Bordeaux comes across as drier, more austere, and not nearly as rich and concentrated (California wines are inevitably fruitier and more massive). To put it mildly, the 1986 Mouton-Rothschild held its own (and then some), in a flight that included the Caymus Special Selection, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23, Dunn Howell Mountain, and Joseph Phelps Eisele Vineyard. Clearly the youngest looking, most opaque and concentrated wine of the group, it tastes as if it has not budged in development since I first tasted it out of barrel in March, 1987. An enormously concentrated, massive Mouton-Rothschild, comparable in quality, but not style, to the 1982, 1959, and 1945, this impeccably made wine is still in its infancy. Interestingly, when I was in Bordeaux several years ago, I had this wine served to me blind from a magnum that had been opened and decanted 48 hours previously. Even then, it still tasted like a barrel sample! I suspect the 1986 Mouton-Rothschild requires a minimum of 15-20 more years of cellaring; it has the potential to last for 50-100 years!

...currant currant leaf cedar and dusty oak on the nose. Tightly wound and classic with fabulous acids contributing to its powerful spine. Wonderfully pure and intense with great verve and grip... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

External Review

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+. Tasted March 2009. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:


<p>This wine has a medium-deep crimson color that is versatile with very mild tannins. It's nose and palate have profiles that include red fruits and a background of light wood. It has great length in the mouth and a smooth long finish. Recommended with a variety of dishes including meat sauces, grilled poultry and most cheeses. &nbsp;</p>
