The 2009 Mouton-Rothschild is as concentrated as the 2010, but it presents itself in a more consumer-friendly, seductive style. Opulently textured and full-bodied with gorgeous levels of crème de cassis, melted licorice, espresso roast and chocolate, it possesses high but sweet, velvety tannins, massive body, and fabulous purity as well as length. This could turn out to be a candidate for perfection in another 8-10 years. It will drink well for 30-50 years, but will always be much more approachable and charming than its 2010 counterpart. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Super fruity and layered with incredible depth and length. Currants, plums, dried strawberries and cherries. Full body, soft and round tannins and gorgeous fruit. Sexy and voluptuous. Better in 2020.

This is pure unadulterated Cabernet with a gorgeously creamy mouthfeel to the beam of cassis that's backed by extra layers of cherry eau de vie red licorice and raspberry ganache.

This is pure unadulterated Cabernet with a gorgeously creamy mouthfeel to the beam of cassis that's backed by extra layers of cherry eau de vie red licorice and raspberry ganache. Obviously dense but amazingly supple with terrific length supported by a classic iron-fueled spine. This has power if it needs it but it's all about length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2040. -JM

Opulent flavors of blackcurrant minerals and herbs are pure and clean with harmonious acidity... 97+ Opaque almost impenetrable purple-ruby. Closed nose hints at ripe dark plum cassis violet coffee minerals and ink. Opulent flavors of blackcurrant minerals and herbs are pure and clean with harmonious acidity lifting and extending them on the very long rich suave finish. This wine has improved considerably since the Primeurs. In fact this is even more true of the 2010 which makes me think that Mouton may now require extra patience and leeway when it's tasted during the spring following the harvest. Another stellar wine for this property.

The tannins are so enveloped by the fruit and yet they promise great aging. At this stage wood shows through the fruit but the texture is so rich and opulent that it should easily become integrated.

The Mouton '09 is more showy and decadent on the nose with more glycerine and prominent use of new oak. It does not have the delineation of the following two wines: perhaps slightly more New World in style (not intended pejoratively.) The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins. There is a thread of citrus freshness that neatly counterbalanced the lush macerated black fruit, whilst the finish is comparatively opulent and generous. Lovely... I suspected this actually might be its neighbour, Pontet-Canet!
