1985 Mouton Rothschild Pauillac
NEEDS TIME 需要时间
Initially was smoky with strong black fruits but the wine was still very closed. Waited for about 2 hours and it showed its colors. Nose of black currant, black pepper, lead pencil and slight tar. Palate is filled with juicy black fruits and lead. Tannin is strong and smooth, lively acidity and good long finish. Definitely a long life awaits this vintage!

MOUTON’S STATUS 武当王的位置
Bear in mind just 12 years before 85 (ie 73), Mouton was only a . Mouton didn’t do too well in this vintage as well, just like Lafite and Latour. It should really be a tonight especially drinking next to Cheval Blanc Saint Emilion and Haut Brion. Strange spicy and black pepper nose. Content was fruit driven, broad and not very focused although decent elegance.

BORDEAUX 85 TASTING 8
We held a tasting of Bordeaux 85 today with a blend of left and right bank: Mouton Rothschild, Leoville Las Cases, Gruaud Larose, Ducru Beaucaillou, La Lagune, La Gaffeliere, Figeac and Certan de May.
Mouton was Wine of the Day and consensus #1 choice amongst the 8 bottles opened. It wasn't surprising, as Mouton typically won by strong and powerful fruits, which has been a tradition prior to 89. This wine still has long life ahead as shown by it's tannins and strong fruits.
