1970(RP : 90):«Opulent, full-bodied, thick, and juicy, the extraordinary evolution of this particular bottle would make a persuasive argument for long-term decanting.»
1982(RP : 100):«I have always felt the 1982 Mouton was perfect, yet this immortal effort might be capable of lasting for 100 years! The fact that it resists oxidation is a testament to just how youthful it remains, and how long it will last. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2075.»
1998(RP : 96):«Like many of its peers, the 1998 has filled out spectacularly. It has awesome concentration, mouth-searing tannin levels, and a saturated flavor profile that grips the mouth with considerable intensity.»
2000(RP : 97+):«Dense, chewy, and backward, with tremendous purity and density in addition to obvious toasty oak, it is full-bodied, powerful, tannic, and backward. This blockbuster will be exceptionally long-lived.»
