Decanter, January 2020

Smoked grilled tar on the nose, it feels both very 2010 and supremely Mouton - accomplished and confident. A more glamorous, enticing edge than the other Pauillac Firsts at this 10 year window. There are plentiful tannins...

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...

Incredible in every sense of the word, this has everything you could want in a Pauillac and from Mouton Rothschild. Just as good, but different in style from the opulence found in the 2009, here you find incredible levels...

Just about pure perfection, the 2010 Château Mouton Rothschild is a concentrated, massive, concentrated effort that offers everything you could want from a wine. Almost all Cabernet Sauvignon (94%), its deep purple/plum...

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, March 2014

Initially, there is a tangible strictness and linearity on the nose of this spellbinding Mouton-Rothschild, though it unfolds to reveal blackberry, mulberry, truffle and violets scents. The palate is medium-bodied but the...

Wine Spectator, January 2017

This remains the stunner, a battleship of a wine, brimming with cassis, blackberry and fig fruit that has melded together now, with the backdrop of alder, bay leaf and menthol starting to emerge a bit more. The long...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2020

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Mouton Rothschild is a little closed to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal notes of baked black cherries, crème de cassis, blackberry compote and bouquet garni with suggestions of sweaty...

Wine Enthusiast, May 2013

A dense, smooth and opulent wine bursting with ripe Cabernet Sauvignon flavors. It's regal and well structured, balancing the natural exuberance of Mouton with a more severe side. This is a wine with power, yet not...

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, July 2015

(18.5+/20) Very dark, blackish crimson. Lustrous. Something lightly burnt, sort of essence of Mouton but not very aromatic – all buried and dense. Sweet start but then very savoury and meaty with yeast extract and...

The 2010 Mouton-Rothschild is a Bordeaux Blend from the prestigious Pauillac region of Bordeaux, France. This wine exudes elegance and sophistication, with a deep red color that hints at its complexity. The nose is opulent and enticing, offering aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, cassis, and oak. There is a tangible strictness and linearity at first, but as the wine unfolds, it reveals layers of blackberry, mulberry, truffle, and violets.

On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied, but the tannins are silky and fine, creating a bewitching texture that is seamless and utterly harmonious. The fruit is perfectly ripe, expressing its purity alongside crushed rocks, flowers, spice box, lead pencil, currants, cassis, blackberries, and Cuban cigars. The finish is racy and vibrant, crossing the 60-second mark with ease. This is a wine that demands patience and will reward those who cellar it for decades to come.

The critics have unanimously praised the 2010 Mouton-Rothschild, with scores ranging from 98 to a perfect 100. Jeff Leve from TheWineCellarInsider.com describes it as "incredible in every sense of the word" and suggests drinking it from 2030 to 2080. John Sweeney from JJ Buckley calls it a wine of "considerable richness and complexity" that will last for 40+ years. Neal Martin's Wine Journal hails it as a "spellbinding" wine with outstanding mineralite.

This wine has garnered comparisons to a battleship, with its brimming cassis, blackberry, and fig fruit melded together, and a long finish loaded with grip. It has been hailed as a perfect wine, with incredible depth of fruit and ripe tannins that seduce the senses. It is a wine for the long term, with James Suckling suggesting it will be better in 2020 and Jeb Dunnuck recommending enjoying it through 2085.

The 2010 Mouton-Rothschild is a legendary wine that showcases the best of Pauillac and the artistry of the Mouton-Rothschild estate. It is a wine of power, balance, and silk, and is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone fortunate enough to experience it.
