1998 Mouton Rothschild Pauillac
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.
One of the better Moutons in the 90s. Arguably 95 or 96 maybe slightly better, but I wouldn't bet my pants for it, as the 98 has it's different charm. It has more fruits, more elegance, and more complexity and depth. It looks like Mouton in the 90s is a big leap forward compared to the 80s (except 82). So it now truly qualifies as a first growth, but in the past an absolute roller coaster label.
