Reviews for 2010 Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, March 2015
Clearly a perfect wine that shows incredible depth of fruit with currants, dark chocolate, minerals and licorice. Full-bodied, tight and wound up with ripe tannins that let go and seduce you. Makes me want to drink it... Clearly a perfect wine that shows incredible depth of fruit with currants, dark chocolate, minerals and licorice. Full-bodied, tight and wound up with ripe tannins that let go and seduce you. Makes me want to drink it now. But this is a wine for the long term. Extraordinary. 94% cabernet sauvignon. Better in 2020.

The aromatics alone are beguiling. On the palate, the wine is every bit as thrilling, with myriad layers of flavor that continue to open up in the glass. Graphite, gravel, smoke, plum, black cherry and savory herbs are all strikingly delineated throughout. Vivid and crystalline, the 2010 is a jewel of a wine, but it is impossibly young now. Readers who can be patient will be treated to a fabulous wine. Today, the 2010 reminds me of a more civilized version of the 1986. The 2010 is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon (the highest amount of Cabernet ever here). Dollops of Merlot round out the blend. Harvest took place between September 29 and October 13.

Another battleship in the making with a massive core of red currant plum and blackberry fruit laced with iron and roasted apple wood and backed by massive grip. Despite the heft this is sleek and long with terrific poise.

Of all the First Growths Mouton has perhaps the most seductive bouquet with macerated black cherries crème de cassis blackcurrant mint and cedar all with very fine delineation but a drop more opulence than say Lafite or Latour. The palate is full-bodied with saturated ripe tannins layers of pure blackberry and dark cherries intertwined with a touch of blueberry. Very good grip very smooth and flirting with the idea of ostentatiousness...but 2010 is not that kind of vintage and the Cabernet defined the finish with graphite and a touch of what almost feels great mineralité much more so than the 2009. Great length and poise this actually reminds me of the stupendous 2006. Drink 2020-2050.

The remainder is Merlot. The wine reached 14% alcohol which is slightly higher than the estate achieved in 2009. From 49% of the harvest which already experienced low yields due to the weather the wine achieved natural concentration. Inky dark ruby with purple edges abundant scents of cedar truffle tobacco boysenberry cassis and hints of blueberry prepare your palate for a bath in pure Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich silk textures power and refined elegance with a suave exotic opulent style is the signature of this wine which explodes on your palate and continues to broaden and expand in flavor. This is a great vintage of Mouton which competes with the sublime 2006.

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. 97+ - Robert M.

The wine has an opulent nose of dark chocolate coffee cassis and oak. In the mouth this is plush with precision on the finish long with well-integrated tannins. A wine of considerable richness and complexity this is a full bodied vintage for Mouton. This gorgeous wine should last for 40+ years. 96-98 points -John Sweeney
