AOP - Appellation d’Origine Protégée (AOC)
1986 Château Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru Classé, Pauillac AOC, Château Mouton Rothschild
1986 Château Mouton Rothschild:
This shows amazing aromas of mushrooms, mint, minerals and dark berries. It boasts a fully body of ultra richness, extraordinary length and beauty and an almost chiseled precision to the quality with fabulous length. It lasts for minutes on the palate.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Still tasting like a barrel sample, the 1986 Mouton Rothschild is a monumental Bordeaux that will undoubtedly outlive anybody alive today. Amazingly youthful, with a dense purple color, it is an extraordinary wine that should age for a century or more.
Tasted blind, I would have guessed it to be a 2-3 year old first-growth Bordeaux.
