Reply to "Chateau Mouton Rothschild '73 Pauillac - Picasso Edition"

From Erobertparker.com: Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition (1998) Robert Parker 65 points Drink through 1982 The year Mouton was officially made a ``first-growth'' was celebrated by a beautiful label done by Pablo Picasso. Whether judged by an art or wine critic, the label clearly surpasses the wine. Very oaky and woody, with rapidly fading fruit, this is a wine worth having if only for the historic significance of the bottle's label. Anticipated maturity: Now-probably in serious decline. Last tasted, 2/82. From the Wine Amateur`s Reviews average score: 78.5 www.littleredbottle.com score: 87 Written: 8-May-2003Tasted:Apr 2003 Caspar Auchterlonie's Review The really historic oneThis in vinous socio-economic history is the big one. This was the first mouton-rothschild to be elevated from 2nd growth to 1st growth, the only ever change in the 1855 classification. The label also was a first being one of Picasso`s most famous paintings the Bacchanales, used only after kind permission of his Grandaughter Paloma after his death. The motto changed as well from `First I cannot be, second I do not deign to be, Mouton is.` (a rather peevish saying) to `First I am, second I was. Mouton doesn`t change`, which is much more positive
