"...it tastes as if it has not budged in development since I first tasted it out of barrel in March, 1987. An enormously concentrated, massive Mouton-Rothschild, comparable in quality, but not style, to the 1982, 1959, and 1945, this impeccably made wine is still in its infancy. Interestingly, when I was in Bordeaux several years ago, I had this wine served to me blind from a magnum that had been opened and decanted 48 hours previously. Even then, it still tasted like a barrel sample! I suspect the 1986 Mouton-Rothschild requires a minimum of 15-20 more years of cellaring; it has the potential to last for 50-100 years!" (100pts RP)

這瓶酒明顯是這級數中酒色最年青、最深不透光和濃縮的葡萄酒,味道跟我在1987年從橡木桶期時嚐過的沒有改變。葡萄酒味道極之集中,而酒質龐大的Mouton Rothschild 所擁有的豐滿質感,於質量上,而不是風格上,比得上1982,1959和1945等偉大年份。這瓶無可挑剔的葡萄酒仍處於幼年期,我估計還要放在酒窖內至少15-20年,還有潛質儲存多50-100年!
