Château Mouton Rothschild JG 2009

Château Mouton Rothschild JG 2009

Wine Spectator im März 2012:
''This is pure, unadulterated Cabernet, with a gorgeously creamy mouthfeel to the beam of cassis that's backed by extra layers of cherry eau de vie, red licorice and raspberry ganache. Obviously dense but amazingly supple, with terrific length supported by a classic, iron-fueled spine. This has power if it needs it, but it's all about length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2040. –JM''  98 Punkte

: ''
The 2009 Mouton Rothschild has a striking label from Anish Kapoor. The wine is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot that begs comparison as a young wine with what the 1982 tasted like in 1985 or, I suspect, what the 1959 may have tasted like in 1962. Representing 50% of their production, the wine has an inky purple color to the rim and not terribly high alcohol for a 2009 (13.2%), but that is reflected by the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a remarkable nose of lead pencil shavings, violets, creme de cassis and subtle barrique smells. It is stunningly opulent, fat, and super-concentrated, but the luxurious fruit tends to conceal some rather formidable tannins in the finish. This is an amazing wine that will be slightly more drinkable at an earlier age than I thought from barrel, but capable of lasting 50 or more years. Kudos to the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and the entire Mouton team, lead by Monsieur Dalhuin.'' 99+ Punkte


Le Petit Mouton Rothschild JG 2009

Wine Spectator im März 2012: Fleshy and inviting, with dense but accessible layers of dark fig, plum, prune cake and roasted espresso, all framed on the finish by a lingering singed cedar edge. This has grip, but it's still approachable now. Drink now through 2020. –JM''  91 Punkte

Wine Advocate im Februar 2012: ''The 2009 vintage is administrator Philippe Dalhuin's finest effort to date. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a Le Petit Mouton (which represents 27% of their total production) more than his 2009, which is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. Dense ruby/purple, with plenty of ripeness, it displays the famous Mouton creme de cassis intermixed with spring flowers, licorice and some background forest floor notes. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years.''  90 Punkte


Aile d'Argent JG 2009


Wine Spectator im März 2012: ''A showy style, with tangerine, white peach and heather aromas and flavors backed by a waxy, but long and stylish finish. Stretches out nicely with air in the glass. Drink now. 833 cases made. –JM''  90 Punkte

Wine Advocate im Februar 2012: ''One of the stronger efforts I have tasted from Mouton-Rothschild, this wine, which is 70% Sauvignon Blanc and the rest Semillon coming from the clay and gravelly soils of the Mouton-Rothschild vineyard, exhibits more fat and opulence than normal. An abundance of marmalade notes intermixed with waxy lemon butter are all present in this honeyed, crisp, refreshing wine, which has loads of personality. Anticipated maturity: now-2022.''  93 Punkte


Château Clerc Milon JG 2009


Wine Spectator im März 2012: ''Juicy and nicely framed with a singed bay leaf note, which allows the medium-weight core of crushed plum and mulled fig to glide along nicely through the velvety finish. This fleshes out considerably as it sits in the glass, showing more layers of dark fruit and lingering minerality. This has some power in reserve, but lovely balance as well. Best from 2013 through 2024. –JM''  93 Punkte

Wine Advocate im Februar 2012: ''This fat, fleshy, dense purple-colored 2009 exhibits abundant notes of creme de cassis, roasted espresso, chocolate, berry fruit and underling hints of high quality, unsmoked cigar tobacco. Composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and a touch of Carmenere, it reveals plenty of structure and tannin, but the evolved aromatics offer a deceptive view that the wine will be drinkable early on. I do not think this is the case as the tannins kick in once it hits the palate. This seriously endowed, powerful, boisterous, muscular Pauillac should hit its prime between 2017 and 2035.''  92 Punkte


Château d'Armailhac JG 2009

Wine Spectator im März 2012: ''This has density, structure and drive, offering seriously dark baker's chocolate, plum, currant and fig flavors all wound up tightly by singed cedar, tar and dark tapenade notes, with a tight, mineral-driven finish. Needs a little time to unwind. Best from 2013 through 2023. –JM''  92 Punkte

Wine Advocate im Februar 2012: ''The finest d’Armailhac I have tasted to date, the 2009 is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) blended with a big wallop of Merlot (25%) and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dense purple color is followed by a big, sweet kiss of asphalt, black currants, mocha, barbecue smoke, cedar and spice. This medium to full-bodied, well-made, impressively endowed Pauillac should drink well for 20+ years.''  92 Punkte
