Wine Critic Reviews:

A wine of noble bearing and exceptional beauty, the 2010 Mouton Rothschild is a flat-out stunner. The aromatics alone are beguiling. On the palate, the wine is every bit as thrilling, with myriad layers of flavor that continue to open up in the glass. Graphite, gravel, smoke, plum, black cherry and savory herbs are all strikingly delineated throughout. Vivid and crystalline, the 2010 is a jewel of a wine...Today, the 2010 reminds me of a more civilized version of the 1986.

Sokolin 2010 Mouton Rothschild Tasting Notes:

At some point, Chateau Mouton Rothschild's incredible viticultural skill and finesse can only be described as sorcerous. Only the existence of magic could explain the impossible level of quality they reach almost every year, and a single session with a bottle from 2010 will quickly dispel all doubts you might have had. Words cannot describe how wonderful this wine is. Its deep color hints at the wine's incredible flavor concentration and depth, like a promise waiting to be fulfilled.



On the nose, the show begins with a stunning aromatic display, as the intense, breathtaking cocktail of nostalgic cedar, warm espresso, licorice, and rich dark fruit overwhelms your senses. The scent of this wine will transport your mind to another realm, as the complexities unfold and you're excitedly piecing together this almost cosmic puzzle. You could spend hours with the glass raised to your nose, and you could still detect new, subtle scents.



Inevitably, you will succumb to your thirst - and that's where the real fun begins. The wine's youth shines through its exceptional fruit-forward intensity and a level of energy that could only be described as explosive. Layers upon layers of ripe fruit surge forth as though through a broken dam, quickly overwhelming your senses with pleasure. The finish lasts for more than a minute and shows a level of polish and elegance typically found in much older vintages. It's a classic in the making, without a doubt.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Mouton: Chateau Mouton Rothschild is the only one of the first growths to have remained in the ownership of the same family since the classification. The wines were best depicted by Ian D'Agata, one of the leading experts in Italian wine, among others, said Mouton is "opulent, luscious and rich, multi-layered and complex… Rich and ripe but marvelously precise and light on its feet." The Chateau Mouton Rothschild estate includes 205 acres of vines at Pauillac planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (77%), Merlot (11%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%), and it has been used for cultivating vineyards since the early middle ages. The Premier Cru Classe from the Bordeaux region has been the center of the wine business and technical innovations since the early 20th century.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red

Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
