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.

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

On the nose a nice balance of fruit earth and wood notes. On the palate flavors of boysenberry raspberry blackberry graphite coffee and vanilla are all incredibly well integrated at this point. This wine has massive tannins but they are soft and elegant. Should be an outstanding Mouton.

The pureness of fruit in this on the nose is phenomenal with crushed currants and cassis. It's deep so deep. Also some foie gras.

Also some foie gras. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and an insanely decadent finish with meat game and dark fruits. Goes on for minutes. Decadent and turns to dark fruits cassis and licorice. Warm and voluptuous wine. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot. Try in 2020.

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... 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.
