Tasting Notes

An incredibly elegant and seductive bouquet of cassis, red currants and deep dark fruits. Masses of rich, ripe flavours with a core of plum, red cherry and blackberry fruit but with great definition. Supple tannins blend seamlessly with the rich flavours and an energetic acidity provides perfect balance. Refined mineral notes and a hint of spice on the finish add to the complexity. This wine has huge potential and will require many years of cellaring. Drink 2025 - 2050.

Reviews & Scores

Winemaker Philippe Dhalluin told me that the 2010s spent a little longer than usual in barrel and this was bottled in July. The Mouton-Rothschild 2010 has wonderful delineation on the nose that is refined, perhaps a little more linear than recent vintages, actually reminiscent of the superlative 2006 in style. The Cabernet Sauvignon is very expressive as one hoped since it contributes 96% of the blend. The palate is medium-bodied with a very expressive entry: blackberry, a thread of graphite, a touch of citrus fruit and a delicate touch of blueberry. It is tightly coiled; perhaps more so than Chateau Margaux at this point, but there is a dormant power that should be unleashed with ten years in bottle. This is an immense Mouton, its silky finish penetrating and unfathomably long. Tasted November 2012.

TASTING NOTES

74% Sauvignon Blanc, 26% Sémillon. Barrel sample. Fragrant and pure with pin-point precision. All in length and line. Floral, citrus aromas. Delicious fruit but again controlled, the finish pebble-sucking and saline. Atypical white Bordeaux. Could be burgundy – Puligny? JR
