This wine has never quite developed, and, sadly, additional time in the bottle does it no favors. It is a high acid Mouton that has always been austere. What black currant fruit it possessed in its youth now seems to have disappeared or evaporated. It is the tannin, acidity, alcohol, and wood that make up much of the uninspiring aromatics and flavors. The 1979 Mouton is an uninteresting wine that has no place to go. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted 10/97- Robert Parker Jr. (01/1998)
