About

96

This shows lots of opulent aromas of ripe fruit, light toasted oak, walnut & dried meat. It’s full-bodied, with chewy tannins & plenty of fruit. A muscular, solid wine. Baby 1986. Try in 2020.

Tasted twice, two weeks apart at the property. The 2011 is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot & 3% Cabernet Franc (the first time it has been blended since 2005) & cropped at 30.1hl/ha. It has a tightly wound Cabernet nose with graphite & cedar aromas, blackberry & a touch of cassis. Leaving the glass to one side, there is fine minerality & delineation here. The palate is very composed on the entry with supple tannins that are a little thicker & more saturated than Lafite. This has very good density, more like Latour than Lafite & a silver thread of acidity (pH 3.8). It has superb precision & 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.

The evolved, fresh, mid-weight 2011 Mouton-Rothschild is charming & complete. It is an over-achieving effort in a challenging vintage with supple tannins, notes of cedarwood, forest floor, underbrush, licorice, graphite & red & blackcurrants. Medium-bodied, lush & sexy, it can be consumed over the next 10-15+ years.

Product Description:

"The colour is intense, a dark red with brilliant highlights. The supremely elegant nose displays red fruit aromas with touches of spice. On the palate, a smooth, creamy attack yields powerful, velvet tannins. The roundness is remarkable, giving the wine very attractive length. A very fine, classic Mouton and a great success in a tricky vintage." - Winery
