Now in the bottle this opaque black/purple-colored offering has increased in stature richness and size. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc (57% of the production was utilized) it is an extremely powerful super-concentrated wine offering notes of roasted espresso creme de cassis smoke new saddle leather graphite and licorice. It is massive with awesome concentration mouth-searing tannin levels and a saturated flavor profile that grips the mouth with considerable intensity. This is a 50-year Mouton but patience will be required as it will not be close to drinkability for at least a decade. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050.

Blackberry and violets on the nose with hints of roses. Sweet tobacco too. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and round tannins. A little tight and reserved now.

This is spicy and peppery with dried fruits and currants. It's full and velvety on the palate showing pretty berries and toasted coffee beans. Long, long finish.
