    This is really exceptional with beautiful chocolate and blackberry character. It's full and velvety with gorgeous ripe tannins. Loving this. Wonderful richness and length.

    James Suckling

    Solid, with forward black currant, plum skin and crushed blackberry fruit lined with charcoal, showing a dusting of loam on the finish. Features some cedar-tinged grip, but remains more accessible than most of the 2010 Pauillacs.

    Wine Spectator

    It is a fabulous wine, but if you want to drink something reminiscent of Mouton Rothschild before 2025, it is probably worth taking a look at the 2010 Le Petit Mouton, which seems to be going from strength to strength at this estate. This wine has 14% natural alcohol because there is more Merlot in it. (Merlot is riper and ferments into slightly higher alcohol than Cabernet Sauvignon.) This wine represents 26% of the crop. The creme de cassis character is also present, along with tobacco leaf, cedar, and a more evolved, chocolaty, spicy note. Opulent, fleshy and round, it should drink well for two decades.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep ruby. Intense, refined cabernet sauvignon-dominated aromas of cassis, graphite and cedar. Then austere and tight on the palate, with concentrated blackberry and mineral flavors leading to smooth but youthfully chewy tannins. Not especially long, but I think this will improve considerably with a little bottle age. This couldn't be more different than the soft, balsamic '09 version.
    Range: 87-90
