Château Mouton Rothschild 1982 - Pauillac
About the domain:
Ranked Premier Cru in 1973 only and not 1855 like its counterparts. Château Mouton Rothschild is now considered one of the greatest wines in the world. It greatly surpasses some original Premier Cru Classés in terms of popularity.
The mutton jumps and it is not the most regular of the band of 1er crus until the 2000s. On the other hand, when a vintage is great, it is exceptional! The 1945 or 1982 vintages are legends that almost eclipse the competition! This qualitative irregularity is no more. Today the Mouton is big and can measure up to the best without fear.
About the cuvée:
The 1982 vintage label is illustrated by artist John Huston. It is possibly the best Mouton ever produced and the first actually referenced in the history of the Château. To put it simply, Mouton 1982 is one of the legendary wine that you must have tasted once in your life.

About the 1982 vintage:
If you are reading these lines, there is no need to introduce you to the 1982 vintage. Here are R.Parker's tasting comments from June 2009:
"The creme de cassis, the underlying floral note, the full-bodied power, the extraordinary purity, the multi-layered texture and the over-minute finish is a showcase of what this chateau achieved in 1982. The wine is still incredibly youthful, vibrant and pure.”
