During the decade of the eighties, Mouton was the hottest first-growth in Pauillac. The 1984, which is almost 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, will be one of the longest-lived wines of this vintage. The wine is full bodied, tannic, concentrated, and rich in extract. It should have a surprisingly long life. This is a considerable surprise in a generally poor vintage. Anticipated maturity: Now-2005. Last tasted, 3/90.
