1961 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (bottom shoulder)

SKU #1053912 98 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Huge, cedary, cassis, lead pencil, menthol-like aromas soared from the glass. The black/purple color revealed no signs of lightening or amber at the edge. Full-bodied, rich, and super-intense, this was an a profound bottle of 1961 Mouton that would have stood up against the compelling 1959. Inner quote mark (1/1998)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tasted from magnum. Subtle in flavor, silky in texture and still firm with tannins, this Mouton is clearly outstanding in quality. Elegance, not richness, is its hallmark, and the mélange of spice-earth-fruit flavors is nearly mature. Inner quote mark (4/1996)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark A bottle that had been decanted 12 hours previously and, although there was the tiniest suggestion it has not been freshly opened, was absolutely stonking. So rich, sweet and concentrated yet with no dryness at all. Absolutely luscious. So rich, sweet and round - and actually livelier than the 1959 served alongside that had been decanted only a couple of hours before. 20/20 points. Inner quote mark (6/2015)
