TN: 1982 Mouton Rothschild
I read today in another forum that alot of people I respect hang out say
" you cannot hate what you did not deeply love"
when I first started geeking out on wine, around 1996 or so, before most went on the web, I got a copy of Parker’s Buyers Guide.
i studied the thing like the talmud
I had the version that talked of the best wines vintage by vintage as well as the greatest wines of all time.
I tried a bottle of 1985 Cos D’Estournel by the glass at Soho Wine Bar and the doors cracked open. I went back to the note by Mr. P and read “scented” and it all jelled. from then on, deeper and deeper.
I have made alot of friends here, learned alot about wine, and then stopped posting much at all
doesn’t matter why.
but when a half bottle of 1982 Mouton Rothschild is offered up to drink, I can’t help but be struck by the irony or bashert about that particular bottle sitting on my table
Mr. P made his name on that bottle
I think Mark adores this bottle
Jeff Leve adores this bottle
Burgundy really floats my boat but hey, why not
It was as good as said.
Expansive, enormous nose of chalk, cedar, milk chocolate, violets, ash, creosote, currants…the list goes on and on. a bit of a parlor trick to rattle off descriptors
balanced finish and deep palate charge. i would say he had a good amount of pitch too.
It had all of the qualities RMP spoke to me abot in my tattered buyers guide to what makes a great wine. It held my interest. It stimulated the mind and the palate. It aged well (half bottles ROCK). The last sip was the best of all
I don’t give points
that’s the thing.
wine, when great, speaks to me like art and music and love.
you can’t suppress divinity
so I am driving home and i hear one of my favorite songs
clearly a favorite line of all time
" someday we’ll look at this, it will all seem funny "
