Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. This has a beautifully defined, crystalline bouquet with blackberry, plum and a touch of violets; beguiling lift from the glass, its fingers caressing the senses and luring you back into the glass. There is tangible mineralite here, a Pauillac that exudes breeding. The palate is very smooth and harmonious, perfect balance, a more feminine wine but there is undoubtedly still a great deal of power and cohesion. Lingers beautifully on the finish. Divine.

At the time it was shown as a barrel sample in early 2007, this was the best wine of 2006. That accolade remains. It has all the power of the Cabernet Sauvignon in Pauillac, which was the greatest success of the vintage... At the time it was shown as a barrel sample in early 2007, this was the best wine of 2006. That accolade remains. It has all the power of the Cabernet Sauvignon in Pauillac, which was the greatest success of the vintage. That power comes from the dense tannins as well as the black plum and spice flavors and minerality. The texture becomes velvet, giving a final richness, but never losing its long aging potential. In a year that is good, but not at the top, Mouton has made a great wine.

96+ Bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of cassis blueberry cedar and graphite. Wonderfully pure and silky in the mouth with great subtle slow-building intensity and superb energy and thrust. A real essence of cabernet... 96+ Bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of cassis blueberry cedar and graphite. Wonderfully pure and silky in the mouth with great subtle slow-building intensity and superb energy and thrust. A real essence of cabernet sauvignon and Mouton terroir This one really rattled my brain-in the gentlest way. As silky as it is it possesses bottomless depths. Finishes with big but noble tannins and outstanding length. I loved this wine the spring after the harvest and it's even more impressive today. This should go on for decades but today it's hard to imagine this wine going through an extended sullen stage. By the way I'm a great fan of Lucien Freud's work but his label for this wine does not do justice to the juice inside the bottle.
