One of the top 87s weve tasted. This is a rich, thick, concentrated wine with layers of plum, currant, nutmeg and vanilla flavors and full tannins on the finish. A trace of mineral comes through. Drink now. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1987 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml

This would appear to be a sure bet for the wine of the vintage. Certainly, it is the most complete and backward 1987, with at least 10-15 years of aging potential. The touching dedication from the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild's daughter on the label is almost worth the price of one bottle. Additionally, 1987 was the last vintage of the Baron, and thus will probably fetch a fortune in 40 or 50 years. This is one of the deepest and most opaque wines of the vintage, with a tight, yet promising bouquet of cedar and black currants. This wine exhibits surprising depth, medium to full body, and plenty of tannin in the finish.
