Wines Tasted at HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago IL): Intense, concentration lemon peel aromas. Lemon curd flavors with a slightly sweet, caramelly hint. Moderate finesse, drinking well now.

    What's your best guess on a drinking window for this wine?
    Thanks!

This is still a wow bottle. I tried a taste of this in the afternoon before leaving it to get some air and even on the first taste it was a palate-pamperer, sinking into the palate with a gentle touch but a surprisingly persistent grip. At dinner a few hours later, it starts out a bit more spinal and also shows some green stems on the nose. Compared to the Dujac it is much more slender and vertical. Then there was a point midway through when the texture turned astonishingly silky and lacy and it's basically the wine version of a French underwear model.

1982 Château Mouton Rothschild Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

A great dinner at Capella in DC (Washington DC): I loved how this came out of the gates, just firing on all cylinders. Dust, graphite, cassis, and iron. With time there was a troubling, almost moldy, green note that peeked out, and there was considerable conversation about whether this was corked or just a bit off. Interestingly, at the end of the night I took another small pour from the decanter, and it showed totally clean. Probably not the best bottle of 1982 Mouton, but I still thought it was enormously enjoyable.

Not very expressive aromatically at first, but right from the first sip it's showing that sense of purity and ethereal lightness on the palate I always expect from Truchot. With time though this really starts to unravel and develop aromatically, and about an hour and a half after being opened there's a haunting fragrance combining pure red fruit, earth, a faint herbal/citrus-like higher toned element and that savoury leatheriness. Just a thrilling wine.
