Lot #7. Mouton Rothschild 1989

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 JS.
"Freshly picked blackberries turn into minty dark chocolate and oozing caramel with domineering eucalyptus on the nose. It becomes yet more complex on the palate thanks to layers upon layers of spices and sage plus fat and rounded tannins. There's a long finish with a bitter aftertaste, suggesting this could do with another 10 years or more of bottle aging. This is a Mouton I found massive at the time, then elegant and slightly austere years later, but today true to its former glory. Like the amazing 1947, it should not be forgotten."

Notes: Lightly scuffed and heavily wine stained label, import sticker partially covering label, sign of slight past seepage.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $350
