It's full-bodied enveloped by silky tannins and leading to an earthy and long finish. Old, traditional Bordeaux with soul and remarkable complexity. Sensational. Drink now.

I know that I am in the minority, but at the present time, I much prefer the quality of the utterly classic 1985 Mouton to the highly regarded, but rather dense and recalcitrant 1986. There is a purity, complexity and classic profile to the 1985 Mouton that is yet to show itself in the much more powerfully constructed 1986, and which may never emerge from that much more extracted wine. Out of magnum, the 1985 Mouton is stunning and still a tad on the young side, soaring from the glass in a blaze of cassis, tobacco leaf, gravelly soil tones, a touch of coffee, fresh herbs and a very stylish base of smoky new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and impressively complex, with a fine core of fruit, moderate tannins and outstanding length and grip on the very poised and classy finish. Out of magnum this is still a fairly young wine. 94+

The rich complex well-developed bouquet of oriental spices toasty oak herbs and ripe fruit is wonderful. On the palate the wine is also rich forward long and sexy.

On the palate the wine is also rich forward long and sexy. It ranks behind both Haut-Brion and Chateau Margaux in 1985. I am surprised by how evolved and ready to drink this wine is. Readers looking for a big boldly constructed Mouton should search out other vintages as this is a tame forward medium-weight wine that is close to full maturity...
