Le Petit Mouton 2010 is purple in color andreveals a rich and complex nose on pleasant red fruit and vanilla aromas with hints of cocoa. The attack is immediately round and elegant. On the palate, forward, tightly-knit tannins provide a framework for deep, ripe fruit flavours that mingle harmoniously with roasted notes. The finish is flavorsome, on fruit and vanilla notes.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Le Petit Mouton is one of the best ever made. Philippe Dhalluin has conjured such purity on the nose that it's almost like Bordeaux doing an impression of Burgundy, though the latter would not be sporting those subtle cedar and mint aromas. The palate is medium-bodied and beautifully balanced, much more approachable than other 2010 Pauillacs, but with tremendous sensuality and poise, a saline note on the finish lending length and detail. This is highly recommended. Tasted August 2016.
