    July 25, 2020 - Generously shared by a guest at dinner. Nose is classic aged bordeaux, with leather, cigar box, earthiness and, some resolved red fruit. On the palate the tannins are fully resolved, altho I feel the fruit is hanging on, so probably time to drink up. Wonderful to try an absolutely iconic wine.

    July 22, 2020 - Aged Bordeaux Gems (with Unico/Heitz MV in the mix): Magnum. Tasted double blind. Unfortunately, this was a weak bottle. While there was no TCA taint detectable, it was slightly disjointed and astringent. Others in the room suggested that it this would come around with a long decant. I’m not really sure about that. Beside a lot of fake bottles out there, you always fight with a quite high bottle variation when buying an 80s Mouton… hence, to chase the 82 is probably not a risk worth taking on the secondary market these days.

    TN: Dark fruit, graphite on the nose. Disjointed palate with lots of minerality and herbs along a rather muted dark fruit core. Not very balanced and harmonious but with quite some density. Fine tannins, not well integrated acidity.

    Decanting: Double decanted only. Probably would have needed a long decant

    July 19, 2020 - Dinner at Tosca, D.C. Wines were Dom Perignon Rose 1982, Leroy Echezeaux 1969 and 1982 Mouton. Mouton was wine of the night. Rich and with great fruit. Very balanced and structured with nose and pallete in harmony. Only negative would be a rather short finish. For the year it actually drank young and anticipate many more years left. Sorry no additional notes but at a birthday celebration. Well worth seeking out the wine.

    July 4, 2020 - Tasted the legendary Mouton 1982, 100point. First taste feel like this is a young vintage if tasted blind. The nose is superb, it’s the kind of nose that I will give maximum point. Spices, toast, cedar, dried black fruits, cassis, prune, earth, leather. Very complex nose with flavours. The taste is medium+ tannin and acidity. The taste had the potential to last like 1945, moreover I had drank from a half bottle. Very impressive experience at Table 65, Michelin 1* pair with my personal favourite wine!
