WS 96
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 1993
Deep garnet; fragrant tar and black truffle nose; extremely concentrated; big and mouth-filling with very dense cassis flavor; enormous generous fruit; a voluptuous claret.

This bottle (one of the Reserve du Chateau bottlings that was mistakenly released by the estate and labeled with the letters R.C. rather than a number) was impossible to assess when decanted given its hard tough impenetrable style. Nearly eight hours later the wine had opened magnificently to reveal a classic bouquet of sweet cassis tobacco minerals and exotic spice aromas. Opulent full-bodied thick and juicy the extraordinary evolution of this particular bottle would make a persuasive argument for long-term decanting. After being perplexed throughout much of this wine's evolution I was reassured by this bottle. No doubt Mouton's high Cabernet Sauvignon content causes this wine to go through a tight hard ungenerous stage and the 1970 requires 5-7 more years of cellaring.
