予想される飲み頃：1989 - 2000
Medium to dark ruby with some browning at the edges, this wine is approaching maturity and exhibits an interesting, moderately intense bouquet of ripe plums, spicy oak, and leather. Plenty of tannin is still evident, but the overall balance and depth of fruit suggest that the tannin will clearly outlive the fruit. It lacks the depth and concentration to be great, but for the vintage it is a respectable Mouton for drinking over the next decade. I must say that the wine's evolution has been much slower than I would have suspected. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 3/89.
