Label artist: Gu Gan

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: An incredible kernel of cassis fruit on the nose, maybe not so much the 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, more the real essence of Mouton. Deep scent, great cassis quality. Huge tannins matched by massive fruit. Perfection. A totally complete wine that will keep for decades if you can stay away from it. A landmark Mouton. 08/07

Representative blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc

Annual production: 17,000 cases and 3,000 cases of the second wine, Petit Mouton. There is also a small amount of white produced: Aile d`Argent.

The only wine ever to have moved up the 1855 classification - from second to first growth in 1973 - `Mouton`, as it is universally known, is a profoundly unique wine in Bordeaux. While the vineyards lie adjacent to those of Lafite, the wine could scarcely be more different. Mouton has a unique nose of spice, cedarwood and cassis and always has greater weight than Lafite. Since the Second World War, Mouton`s singularity has only been enhanced by its artists labels - a different artist for each vintage. This makes it a particular favourite of collectors.
