Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1993

This is the first time I've been lucky enough to try a "Mouton".  Unfortunately, 1993 was a terrible year in Bordeaux, and it showed even for a wine of this calibre.  An aroma of black fruits and cigar box.  On the palate, there was length and black fruit flavours, but while evidently of some class, the wine was just a bit dilute for my taste.  87 points.
