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.
Winespectator / James Suckling (94)
Pure, unadulterated Cabernet, with blackberry, black currant and fig fruit seamlessly held together by mouthwatering acidity, fine-grained grip and backed by a long, smoldering finish of tobacco and iron. Dense but rounded, with the length to last a decade or more in the cellar.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
