Tasting Notes for Mouton Rothschild, 1962:
In earlier editions of this book I complained about bottle variation, but three tastings over the last several years from bottles that had been perfectly stored revealed a splendid wine. The 1962 is extremely fragrant, with a dark garnet color revealing lightening at the edge. A sweet nose of jammy black fruits, cedar, and smoke is followed by a velvety-textured, medium to full-bodied wine with no hard edges. It is a compellingly rich, opulent Mouton that appears to have gained character and complexity with age.
