It is exceptionally powerful and super-extracted with the fruit supported by high levels of tannin and some lusty quantities of alcohol. This mammoth full-bodied Mouton-Rothschild should continue to evolve for another 20-30 years. It may well be a 100-year wine! Last tasted 3/97.

Another perfect bottle. This has been a long-time favorite with mint and fresh basil, as well as currants and dried fruits on the nose. It turns to dried flowers. Full-bodied with spices, berries, and light eucalyptus... Another perfect bottle. This has been a long-time favorite with mint and fresh basil, as well as currants and dried fruits on the nose. It turns to dried flowers. Full-bodied with spices, berries, and light eucalyptus character. Christmas cake too. Full body with velvety tannins. This bottle was almost mid-shoulder height, but it was a perfect wine.

A poetic wine that will enthrall any wine lover. Dark garnet in color it offers an unbelievable nose with stylish minty cassis aromas that keep developing in the glass and supple minty eucalyptus flavors that are beautifully integrated. Powerful yet seductive; this great wine should hold for years...

Manages to be aromatically heady yet dry, delicate and fresh on the palate. Lively and amazingly lifted. Dry finish by now though, not rich by any means on the palate so it may be on the way down. But it's fab overall. Spicy. Rich, clean, almost minty. Lasted wonderfully in the glass and led to Paulo Pong, whose wine this was, asking Mr Broadbent, 'Michael, would you like more '59?'. A great line. A great wine. 19/20

Knockout nose combines plum exotic woodsmoke cedar menthol and grilled nuts plus a hint of maple syrup. Powerfully structured and still tightly wound; today the lively acids and strong tannins combine to give the wine a somewhat rigid texture. Still rather austere even a tad dry on the finish. Not quite up to past bottles of this great vintage of Mouton which typically displays more richness and primary fruit character to go with its steel-like spine. 93 points
