The Mouton ’89 is a lovely Pauillac that has reached its plateau of maturity. It has an engaging cedar-scented bouquet touches of cigar box, mint and a touch of Italian cooked meats. Very well defined, very “old school”. The palate is medium-bodied and very harmonious with grainy tannins. It continues the aromatic theme of cedar and tobacco, relatively foursquare compared to Pichon-Baron of Lynch Bages, with a slightly leafy finish that demonstrates great persistency. It is very “classic” in style, restrained, elegant and bearing similarities to Lafite. Drink now-2030. Tasted October 2010.

Dark ruby with a hint of brick at the rim. More focussed and less exotic than the 1990 on the nose. Neat, concentrated. Tannins even a little severe on the palate. Fine, dense, a wine with lots of dry density - as opposed to the sweet opulence on the 1990. Refined and even elegant for a 1989. Racy, even lacy in its transparency and texture. Sweet, gentle palate. Very long and very lovely. Very impressive.Drink 2004-2020.Date tasted 19th Nov 04.
