Composed of over 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2010 has a robe of intense dark red with a bluish tint. The bouquet is marked by an extraordinary aromatic complexity. Beginning with lightly toasted notes of vanilla, the bouquet opens with air revealing beautiful fruit aromas dominated by blackcurrant and black cherry. On the mouth, this Pauillac fully expresses its depth showing its well-integrated tannins and roundness. A fresh mineralty on the remarkably long finish completes the wine, distinguishing its harmonious nature.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The enormously endowed, backward, ferociously tannic, massively extracted 2010 Mouton-Rothschild exhibits an opaque blue/purple color as well as a tight but promising nose of incense, licorice, lead pencil shavings, vanilla, blackberries and cassis. Full-bodied in the mouth, extremely young, and tasting like a barrel sample, this remarkable effort requires 10-15 years of cellaring. It should age well for half a century or more.
