"In 1986, Mouton-Rothschild produced the most profound wine of a great northern Medoc vintage. The sensational opaque black/ruby color may be even denser than that of the 1982. It requires coaxing and extended airing to bring forth the subdued bouquet of minerals, celestial blackcurrants, smoky new oak, and spices. The wine possesses incredible concentration, full body, fabulous length, and is - well - perfect. At present, this exemplary effort is a huge, monolithic, totally unevolved wine. 100 Points/Drink 2011-2096" - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Tasted March 2009. Deep garnet-black colour. An incredible array of aromas on the nose: blackberry, black cherry, tobacco, espresso, leather, black olive and loam. The palate is absolutely seamless from first impression to finish, effortlessly building layers of complexity in the mouth and leading to a very long, earth and spice finish. I can’t see how this could possibly be improvement so have no alternative but concede perfection. 100 Points/Drink 2009 - 2045+" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
