Composed of over 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2010 has a robe of intense dark red with a bluish tint. The bouquet is marked by an extraordinary aromatic complexity. Beginning with lightly toasted notes of vanilla, the bouquet opens with air revealing beautiful fruit aromas dominated by blackcurrant and black cherry. On the mouth, this Pauillac fully expresses its depth showing its well-integrated tannins and roundness. A fresh mineralty on the remarkably long finish completes the wine, distinguishing its harmonious nature.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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 leather, pencil lead, cedar chest and black truffles plus a hint of crushed rocks. Full-bodied, the palate is solidly constructed of super firm, ripe, grainy tannins and lively acidity, framing the densely packed black fruit, finishing on a persistent mineral note.
