Tasting notes - Extract
"Exhalant de séduisantes senteurs d'épices exotiques, de minéral, de café, de cassis et de chêne doux, le Mouton 1988 offre un bouquet renversant, mais les arômes qu'il dévoile en bouche pèchent par manque de profondeur. L'ensemble, plus ferme, plus rugueux et plus tannique que celui du 1989, révèle un caractère moyennement corsé et extraordinaire de maturité. (...)" Source : Robert Parker (08/1993)
