Outstanding Mouton! Combines wealth in fruit with layered complexity. Actually tasting this wine is a journey in its own right. You can get lost in the estate of flavours and senses called Mouton. What a wine! If you love yourself just a bit you should at least have this one. And for those who indulge in this wine: I do have Magnums of it (The ideal size for wines you really love!)

The evolution of the 1996 (which I retasted in late March prior to bottling) continues to confirm that this vintage is indeed awesome. The wine (which I would now rate as high as 95-96), is looking extraordinary as it enters into its last few months of barrel age. Massive, thick, and rich, it looks to be as prodigious as the slightly softer 1995. It is a sensational Mouton that appears to be every bit as complete and potentially grand as the other Medoc first-growths in this vintage.
