Ch. Mouton-Rothschild Pauillac 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 21-Mar-2015
1er Cru, 68% CS, 24% Me, 8% CF Very dark black-red colour, near impenetrable at heart, lighter purple hues on rim. The nose is full and voluminous, with a deep and refined core of ripe blackcurrant fruit melded with minerals and layers of toasty, charry and mocha oak, unfolding ethereal black and dark red perfumes. This has finesse, elegance, opulence and a sense of the exotic. Medium-full bodied, the palate is one of finesse and great refinement encasing beautiful fruit succulence. The flavours of sweet blackcurrants are detailed with black and red berry fruits and the new oak blossoms into waves of exotic char, toast and pencil shavings. The fruit and oak is totally integrated and seamless, and the palate follows a silky, fine-textured core and line. The tannins are exceptionally refined and the acidity poised, the palate possessing pin-point tension and remarkable accessibility and balance. This has vibrancy, vitality and great length, and unveils nuances of earth, game, smoke and toast. This is a beautifully rich, opulent Mouton-Rothschild with great elegance, vitality and exotic oaking. Its balance will ensure 20+ years of fine drinking. 19.5/20 Mar 2015 RRP $1,850.00
