Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Opaque purple-colored showing absolutely no signs of lightening, Mouton's 1982 is the most backward wine of the vintage. Still tasting like a 4-5 year old Bordeaux, it will evolve for another half century. Is it the modern day equivalent of the 1959, or is it closer to the immortal 1945? Moreover, it has a level of concentration that represents the essence of the Mouton terroir as well as the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon it contains. Cassis, cedar, spice box, minerals, and vanillin are all present, but this opaque black/purple Pauillac has yet to reveal secondary nuances given its youthfulness. It exhibits huge tannin, unreal levels of glycerin and concentration, and spectacular sweetness and opulence. Nevertheless, it demands another decade of cellaring, and should age effortlessly for another seven or eight decades. I have always felt the 1982 Mouton was perfect, yet this immortal effort might be capable of lasting for 100 years! Anticipated maturity: 2010-2075.

Wine Spectator
A powerful wine with great depth, it's supple sweet, packed with ripe currant, plum and anise flavors, long and extraordinarily deep.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Pauillac
Pauillac is maybe the best appellation of Bordeaux with three of the five Premiers Grands Crus Classés and 18 Grands Crus Classés. Some of the great names in the wine world—Château Lafite, Château Latour and Château Mouton-Rothschild—call Pauillac home. Pauillac wines are generally full bodied, tannic and acidic when young; after aging, they achieve an opulent bouquet with aromas of blackcurrant and cedar. View all our items from Pauillac
Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
