Neal Martin for Robert Parker - 96 points - "Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. What a curious showing for Mouton ’82 – a wine I have had a number of times. It habitually ravishing, flamboyant nature has somehow been tamed in this particular bottle (and it is not faulty in any way.) It is the most austere, backward aromatic profile that I have ever encountered on this particular wine, opening slowly with graphite, blueberry, cassis and liquorice. The palate is full-bodied and against, is the most reserved that I have met. It is beautifully balanced, pure and builds nicely towards its precocious finish that reverts to type. It is a brilliant wine. Tasted November 2012."
