In 2019, this is as great as ever, perfect now in bottle, but try and wait a bit in magnum.  Deep black fruit characterises the bouquet, cigar-rich and opulent. In the mouth, there is dense, welcoming texture plus ripe, yet still fresh, flavour that just swarms over the palate. Huge and enveloping, exciting and satisfying. This is classic Mouton from a vintage that miraculously combined fabulous quality with quantity. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
