Easily the most beautiful Mouton I have ever tasted. A wine to drink while kneeling! This wine has such delicacy, such fabulous complexity and harmony that it makes you realize there are wines that get (incredibly close) to perfection. The Mouton 1982 is overwhelming in fruit abundance and its broad palette of flavors it presents. I believe it is rather rare that Mouton gets to the level of Latour and Lafite but in this year they for sure did it.
One word of caution: it does need some serious breathing time before drinking. I followed Parker here once on his 24 hours but that turns out not to be necessary. After 3 -5 hours the wine is opening up nicely and ready for the party! Can I recommend to make sure you drink this wine at least once.....
