Written Notes

The 1977 Mouton Rothschild had a nice nose with pleasant fruit along with some wax, cedar and mineral, someone even said ‘incredible,’ given the context of the vintage, that is. Its palate was smooth, soft and mature, pleasant but light, simple yet elegant. ‘Good nose but dry,’ commented one guest, although there were 3-4 votes for it as wine of the flight. Hamburger noted, ‘cedar, herbal, old school’ (89).
