Wine Information

1973 PABLO PICASSO We have to approach art as immediate as that of Picasso in a way that is entirely direct, honest, spontaneous and innocent... What we absolutely must not do is put him on a pedestal like some horror in a cemetery and talk about him as "a great man": everything about him is alive, in constant movement, refusing to be confined in a lifeless statue. One of the grossest errors propagated about Picasso, and one we hear most often...

Written Notes

Beautiful looking bottle. Level by the neck. Mature, old-looking, deep purple colour Open, wide, spicy and earthy nose with a touch of sweetness. On the palate it was a bit dry and lacking some fruit, but had a quite intense and well-made structure. Happily, the finish was gentle and elegant. At the end of the day, the only special thing here is the vintage, although the wine is also fairly pleasant.

I was ultimately surprised how good the 1973 Mouton Rothschild was. I was thinking 1971 Pomerol at first, as there was plump plum and nut aromas happening in its classy nose. The palate had garden and plum flavors, and while there was some greeny drama, this was an excellent and exceptional wine given the vintage. The magic of Picasso continues (Picasso designed the ‘artist’ label in 1973 for Mouton) (93).

The wine that should have been dead according to everything you read about it. B-B/C level fill, cork not fully soaked. Bright ruby, orange rim, very developed nose, leather, cedar, tobacco, like opening the door too an old Rolls-Royce. Some tar, touch of iodine, lean body but still flirting, good acidity, very few tannins left, drying a bit in the finish, but not at all critical, good length. Way above any expectations. 85
