There is a lightness about this vintage of Mouton Rothschild. It doesn't take away from its quality but does give the wine poise and an attractive lift. The wine is based on solid tannins, then the ripe fruit builds layers of fruitiness and freshness. It is not likely to be one of the longest-aging Moutons, but it will be delicious. Drink from 2020.

(nm92-94 points)Tasted twice two weeks apart at the property. The 2011 is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc (the first time it has been blended since 2005) and cropped at 30.1hl/ha. It has a tightly wound Cabernet nose with graphite and cedar aromas blackberry and a touch of cassis. Leaving the glass to one side there is fine minerality and delineation here. The palate is very composed on the entry with supple tannins that are a little thicker and more saturated than Lafite. This has very good density more like Latour than Lafite and a silver thread of acidity (pH 3.8). It has superb precision and 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. JS 94 jamessuckling.com, March 2015 This is now a little tight but shows a firmness and raciness with pretty austerity. Full and tight with silky tannins and a long and fresh finish. Firm acidity is holding it back now. Needs two or three years to open. This is now a little tight but shows a firmness and raciness with pretty austerity.

Cassis and gravel in the nose, that become further complicated with notes of cedar wood, tobacco, black raspberry and cigar box accents. The wine has a gritty, polished sensation on the palate, with loads of fresh, sweet, round textured, blackberry and dark plum notes in the finish. With bottle age, this could score higher. The wine was made using a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. This is the first time since 2005 that Mouton has included any Cabernet Franc in the blend. The grapes were picked between September 12 to September 28.

Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2011 Mouton-Rothschild is probably the "weakest" of the releases between 2008 and 2012, although that would be unfairly disparaging what is a perfectly respectable, if rather unexciting Mouton. Here, it has those graphite and cedar aromas present and correct, the former a little more accentuated and with a light sea-spray note emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with cedar and a slight peat-like note infusing the black fruit, rigid in its youth but nicely delineated. As I discerned out of barrel, what it lacks is that peacock's tail on the finish, bolting out of the exit door before you have really got to know each other. Tasted April 2016. - Neal Martin
