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

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.

A huge, powerful wine, the 2009 possesses stunning richness and radiance, with plenty of underlying structure to support all of that exuberance. Smoke, grilled herbs, tobacco and incense give the 2009 much of its exotic, captivating personality. Seamless, opulent, yet with terrific freshness, the 2009 is sure to thrill those fortunate to own it for several decades. In a word: dazzling. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot. Harvest took place between September 23 and October 6 in a year marked with dry weather, higher than average temperatures and generous sunshine.

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.

Here I remarked upon its deep co lour vis-a-vis recent vintages. The aromatics have "firmed up" since I last tasted it, takes a little encouragement from the glass, and then its sheer purity washes across the senses. Blackberry and cold stone notes, bilberry and just a touch of graphite that was less noticeable than before. The palate remains weighty in the mouth, extraordinarily dense and yet still utterly composed and beautifully focused, segueing towards an intense spicy finish. I noticed Philippe Dhalluim almost laughing at the quality of this 2009, such is its pedigree and yet will it eclipse the 2010 Mouton-Rothschild? Time will tell. Magnificent. Tasted May 2016. - Neal Martin

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.

(19/20) Even darker than 2010, and more youthful looking. Blackish crimson. Amazing opulence and richness. So sweet and yet with classic build and tension. Richness and tension. Long. Already enjoyable even if so youthful.

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.
