1983 Mouton Rothschild Pauillac
READY TO GO 预备，走！
After the legendary 1982 vintage, the 1983 vintage for Bordeaux was nothing great. This wine is nothing extraordinary, but amongst the flight, it seemed the most ready and mature. Aroma of ripe dark fruits, blackberry, smoke, pepper spice. Palate has extremely juicy fruits, good acidity and very velvety tannins that make you want to keep chewing the wine.

After drinking so many Mouton Rothschild, I have to declare Mouton as a very fruit driven wine, normally on a good vintage its big and bold, while on a weak vintage more acidic and much less fruity.
This bottle was served blind, in less than 30 secs I have identified it as a Mouton, based on the unique Pauillac nose and the fruity body (plus my friend only served me first growth, making the guesses much easier.) I liked the 83 for its bold fruits despite slightly high initial acidity.

DAY 2 INT'L VIVINO CHAPTER
Served blind. Very strong pencil lead shaving nose, and slightly strong woody nose. At this point I am almost confirmed its a Pauillac. Palette is rich and luscious. Very good effort from Mouton from an average vintage, guess the winemaking style is improving tremendously starting 81. If I drink it standalone I would have given it a five stars but today's tasting had too many great wines and the weaker ones really get drowned!

The supremely elegant nose displays red fruit aromas with touches of spice. On the palate, a smooth, creamy attack yields powerful, velvet tannins. The roundness is remarkable, giving the wine very attractive length. The finish reveals vanilla and chocolate aromas, with pleasant floral notes.
I must say something about Mouton 83. When I first had a sip in a blind tasting (from a bottle direct from the chateau), I thought it was so great it was a Mouton 82. The fruit is beefy, good weight & big, bold. Almost like a transformer. The nose is very typical of Pauillac, pencil lead shaving, cigar box, not overpowering. I thought this is a really great Mouton, better than 81 or 85 and even 89. I don't mind drinking this all day.

The wine has beautiful depth of colour, almost black with a blueish tint. The nose is complex, with notes of blackberry and redcurrant and a touch of smoke, revealing still discreet oak. The attack is full and generous, while the tannins elegantly enfold flavours of liquorice, mocha and vanilla. The finish is long and flavoursome, full of freshness and fruit, set off by delicious touches of toast. A vintage as elegant as it is promising.
I just wanted to share the photo of the trio wines (all magnums, rare) I talked about in my earlier post. No need to go for extreme like Mouton Rothschild 83, Clerc Milon and Mouton Baron Philippe 83 should satisfy any wine connoisseur without breaking the bank.
