Château Mouton Rothschild, Paulliac 1985


Ruby core, garnet to the rim.  Lovely build on the palate.  Transparent and benificent and very evolved.  The ‘easy’ vintage, a balanced growing season with nothing to do but get out of the way.  The sweetness of maturity and the finish is an agent for renewal.  There are mightier Moutons but the pride has a way of holding too firm; this one is Barb’s favorite.  Now.
