It is a fabulous wine, but if you want to drink something reminiscent of Mouton Rothschild before 2025, it is probably worth taking a look at the 2010 Le Petit Mouton, which seems to be going from strength to strength at this estate. This wine has 14% natural alcohol because there is more Merlot in it. (Merlot is riper and ferments into slightly higher alcohol than Cabernet Sauvignon.) This wine represents 26% of the crop. The creme de cassis character is also present, along with tobacco leaf, cedar, and a more evolved, chocolaty, spicy note. Opulent, fleshy and round, it should drink well for two decades.

Tasted from the final blend that was done three months ago. A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, the Petit Mouton is very focused and quite luscious on the nose, with scents of bright red cherries, crushed strawberry and vanilla. You can feel the sharpness of acidity on the entry that lends the wine good tension, powdery tannins towards the fresh blackcurrant finish. Le Petit Mouton continues to be not so Petit anymore. Drink 2014-2022. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This is really exceptional with beautiful chocolate and blackberry character. It's full and velvety with gorgeous ripe tannins. Loving this. Wonderful richness and length. jamessuckling.com

Offers a solid, muscular beam of raspberry and red currant, with sweet spice and tobacco in the background. The round finish of roasted vanilla is nicely integrated already, and this nicely rounded overall. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Tasted 17 Feb: Very dark. Big spicy nose. Some slight green notes – a bit pinched. Lots of tannin here! Maybe second wines will be a little disappointing in 2010? Raw fruit. Tasted 8 Apr: 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. A slightly green note arising, and quite slim on the palate. Fresh and easy and certainly no excess of tannin on the basis of this sample. An easy wine that seems much less ambitious than the other ‘seconds of the firsts’. Sweet on the finish. Then a little inky. Overall much softer than the earlier sample. jancisrobinson.com

Rich aromas of cassis and mocha chocolate, explosive, even exotic, with firm tannins to back it up, will give great pleasure. Drink 2015-25. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

Faint aromas of rich fruits, caramel and chocolate emanate from le Petit Mouton. Composed of 68%Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, it bears subtle tannins and reveals rich damson and soft fruits. It will be ready to drink after ten years.

Le Petit Mouton de Rothschild - From an assemblage of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, the wine is spicy, with bright cassis, oak and earth in the nose. Medium bodied with fresh cassis and dark berries, this is the best vintage of this wine I recall tasting. This Pauillac will show well young. winecellarinsider.com

The deep purple 2010 Petit Mouton offers up notes of blackberries, blueberries, cedar and plums, with a lovely freshness in the middle palate and firm rounded tannins. Made in a generous style, unlike the grand vin which is heavy and thick, this wine will be best enjoyed with at least five or more years of bottle age. asianpalate.com
