2008 Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac

750ml | SKU 43984 | Available
95 WA

Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2008 Mouton Rothschild has always been in the shadow of the ensuing couple of vintages, but I was not the only person at this tasting that commented upon the class in show here. It replicated previou...


1983 Chateau Palmer - Margaux

750ml | SKU 2356 | Available
98 WA

Tasted at the Chateau Palmer vertical in London, this was the finest 1983 Chateau Palmer that I have encountered. The nose is ethereal with wonderful definition: mint-tinged red berry fruit, cedar, dried rose petals and very subtle acrid tang of a Novembe...
