This delivers a gorgeously pure beam of cassis and cherry compote, with singed apple wood, graphite and iron notes hanging in the background for now. Long and polished through the finish, showing serious depth in reserve...

Long and polished through the finish, showing serious depth in reserve. Best from 2018 through 2035. –JM

It doesn't take away from its quality but does give the wine poise and an attractive lift. The wine is based on solid tannins, then the ripe fruit builds layers of fruitiness and freshness. It is not likely to be one of the longest-aging Moutons, but it will be delicious. Drink from 2020.

(NM92-94 points)Tasted twice two weeks apart at the property. The 2011 is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc (the first time it has been blended since 2005) and cropped at 30.1hl/ha. It has a tightly wound Cabernet nose with graphite and cedar aromas blackberry and a touch of cassis. Leaving the glass to one side there is fine minerality and delineation here. The palate is very composed on the entry with supple tannins that are a little thicker and more saturated than Lafite. This has very good density more like Latour than Lafite and a silver thread of acidity (pH 3.8). It has superb precision and tension on the finish that does not quite possess the persistency that a great vintage would have given. But this is still very impressive: a quintessential Mouton that may warrant a higher mark after bottling. Tasted April 2012.

This is now a little tight but shows a firmness and raciness with pretty austerity. Full and tight with silky tannins and a long and fresh finish. Firm acidity is holding it back now. Needs two or three years to open... This is now a little tight but shows a firmness and raciness with pretty austerity. Full and tight with silky tannins and a long and fresh finish. Firm acidity is holding it back now. Needs two or three years to open. Better in 2018.

Plum, grilled herbs, smoke, graphite and mocha are all nicely delineated in the glass. The effects of the hot, dry weather are felt in the wine's roasted flavors and hard tannins that reflect the heat stress of the season. I suspect the 2011 will have its day of glory once the tannins soften, but that day is a ways off in the future. Readers should expect to be patient with the 2011. The blend is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, brought in between September 12 and 28.

Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2011 Mouton-Rothschild is probably the "weakest" of the releases between 2008 and 2012, although that would be unfairly disparaging what is a perfectly respectable... Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2011 Mouton-Rothschild is probably the "weakest" of the releases between 2008 and 2012, although that would be unfairly disparaging what is a perfectly respectable, if rather unexciting Mouton. Here, it has those graphite and cedar aromas present and correct, the former a little more accentuated and with a light sea-spray note emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with cedar and a slight peat-like note infusing the black fruit, rigid in its youth but nicely delineated. As I discerned out of barrel, what it lacks is that peacock's tail on the finish, bolting out of the exit door before you have really got to know each other. Tasted April 2016. - Neal Martin

Soils are gravelly over a base of sand clay marl and limestone. The 2011 Mouton harvest began September 12th and was completed on September 28th. Totally stacked and packed this is a top Mouton! Concentrated and intense bouquet leads to a balanced palate with notes of vanilla cassis blackberry compote plum and cherry. Ultra-complex there is just a hint of earth and herbal notes to balance the ripe fruit flavors. The refined tannins lead into a long fresh finish. An impressive seamless wine. Enjoy 2020-2035.
