($130-$180) Good saturated ruby-red. Tight nose hints at currant and smoky oak. Highly concentrated, densely packed and built to age. As young as it is, it also shows a lovely velvety texture rare for this vintage. Finishes with terrific breadth, subtle minerality and noble tannins. I've been a fan of this wine since the outset.

Big and furry and not pure. Not to my taste - very chewy and impure. Hard. Not looking very seductive at present.

Dense purple to the rim, this wine exhibits the classic cassis aroma that is so characteristic of Mouton. Medium to full-bodied, tannic, powerful, and cut somewhat from the 1988 mold, this is a backward, chewy, well-endowed Mouton-Rothschild that will require considerable patience from those who purchase it. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, the wine needs a good decade of cellaring.

Complex aromas of tobacco, cedar, berry and currants. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and ripe tannins. Not as good as a barrel sample tasted earlier, but still outstanding for the vintage.

Crimson in color. Low rim variation. Nose of Oak, Blackberry. Taste of Oak, Blackberry. Medium/Full bodied. Angular texture. Medium finish. Much too young but wanted to try a bottle. Oak dominates the nose but the Mouton fruit is lurking underneath. Similar structure revealed on the palette with what seems to be a high level of alcohol for Mouton. Pleasing for the vintage and not a bad purchase at these prices.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
