Initially, the wine seems austere, very mineral. It opens slowly, showing fruit that is definitely rich, offering velvet tannins. But there is also an iron hand in that velvet glove, because the structure then comes bursting through. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Mouton-Rothschild 3000ml

A fantastic and full nose of blackberry jam, mineral and floral notes. Full-bodied, with exceptional purity of flavors. Lush and juicy on the palate with plenty of dark fruit flavors and a touch of minerality and spice on the finish. The tannins are ... John Perry.

The final blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot exhibits tell-tale black currant liqueur, incense, charcoal and floral-like characteristics. The oak is pushed to the background, one of the major improvements director Philippe Dalhuin has made at this estate. Full-bodied, deep and impressively endowed, it is a deep, rich, less massive effort than either the 2010 or 2009. This gorgeous Mouton will be drinkable in 4-5 years and age effortlessly for three decades.

Here comes the wine of the vintage Intense black color. Intense and very aromatic nose. This is the most aromatic of all first growths tasted during this future campaign. Upon swirling it appears pure and noble. From entry it provides strong pleasure. Developing dense very very fruity and with beautiful weaving. No doubt that this is the best weaving of Bordeaux this year. Very juicy and pure the wine evolves on fine tannins without granularity. Very beautiful aromas emerge on the finish. This is very good with great length. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

The second wine, Le Petit Mouton, continues to go from strength to strength. The 2008, a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot, represents 24% of the production. Notes of incense, graphite, and black currants are followed by a wine with sweet... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Le Petit Mouton 750ml
