    September 7, 2019 - Incredibly vegetative, lots of spice, more secondary, perhaps in a shutdown period and needs decades before drinking. Palate is so smooth. NR

    August 24, 2019 - Terrific bottle of 82 Mouton; certainly one of the more ready yet not most profound examples. A little more expressive on the palate, this has loads of ripe berry fruit, ganache, and cedar, minty accents. This is a big wine in the mouth, but it seems so fleshy and voluptuous, particularly next to the 82 Margaux. Terrific Mouton. Still needs lots of time to show its best, but bottles like this can be broached now.

    July 20, 2019 - Soft and rounded with savory and sweet spice across the palate. Notes of white pepper.

    June 28, 2019 - Didn't have the "wow" factor that some describe - decanted for about an hour before drinking. All kinds of wonderful flavors going on but wouldn't say it was one of my greatest wine experiences ever.

    June 8, 2019 - Mid shoulder fill; opened for an hour, then decanted; Cork wet almost to the top and broke 2/3 down; no sign of bricking; outstanding bouquet, youthful, but drinking beautifully. 97
