1970 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (bin soiled/torn label, high shoulder fill)

SKU #1119501 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Deep garnet; fragrant tar and black truffle nose; extremely concentrated; big and mouth-filling, with very dense cassis flavor; enormous, generous fruit; a voluptuous claret. Inner quote mark (5/1993)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright red with an amber rim. Captivating nose of dark plum, blackcurrant, oak, coffee, cocoa and flowers. Juicy, sweet and suave on entry, then brightly focused in its red fruit and black flavors complicated by cedar and citrus. Finishes with flinty, saline nuances and very suave tannins. This outstanding wine is perfectly balanced and light on its feet, still very young and capable of a very long life. It might disappoint those looking for a blockbuster, but I love its overall sense of refinement. An essence of claret. Inner quote mark (8/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark ...A classic bouquet of sweet cassis, tobacco, minerals, and exotic spice aromas. Opulent, full-bodied, thick, and juicy, the extraordinary evolution of this particular bottle would make a persuasive argument for long-term decanting Inner quote mark (6/1996)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Shiny, russet colour. Muted, simple nose. Rich fruit with a dry finish. Surely Bordeaux? Not exciting but appetising. Well balanced and still motoring along. Neat finish. 17/20 points. Inner quote mark (5/2006)
