Château Mouton Rothschild, Paulliac 1988

Mouton Rothschild 1988 #1

Palace Brands Company, Farmington CT.

Thirty years on.

Ruby.   Rich toasty nose and the palate boasts vineyard-typical inferences of black currant, licorice-y flint and havana tobacco.  A beguiling mélange of hard structure and soft flavors.  Lots of ripe fruit but no easy sweetness.  Savory sandpaper notes and the finish is attractively dry like a tonic.  Now – 2028+.
