    Château Mouton-Rothschild 1961
    Pauillac, 1er cru classé
    Slightly corroded embossed Château capsule. Bin-soiled label. Level just below top-shoulder
    Tasting note: Most recently: glorious, deep, velvety appearance, still with youthful plummy colour; at first sniff, almost a ‘clone’ of the ’45, spicy, whiff of tobacco. Fairly sweet, very spicy, crisp, great length, dry finish. Delicious. Dramatic but not overdone. Last tasted November 2005 ***** Time in hand. M.B.
