The arrival of Mr. Dhalluin in 2004 not only benefited Mouton-Rothschild, but also the two other classified growths of Barony: d'Armailhac and Clerc-Milon. Their vines occupy the southern (d'Armailhac) and northern (Clerc-Milon) part of the Mouton gravel plateau. D'Armailhac is barely less rich than Clerc-Milon, but it gives the same aromatic nobility of blackcurrant, tobacco and cedar blends.

    Rated 91/100 by Neal Martin after bottling « The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a little "angular" perhaps, with a fine bead of acidity and touches of iron-tinged red fruit on the finish. Probably an earlier drinking d’Armailhac, but one with plenty of character.  » (February 2020)

    The 2010 was rated 93/100 by Wine Advocate as "a sensational effort".

    Re-tasted 10 years later by the Revue du Vin de France, it is rated 16.5/20 "a wine that has lost none of its roundness, charm and velvety texture. Here it is ready to drink, with a nice fat and creamy finish.

    Mouton-Rothschild's second wine, which appeared in 1993, has since made its place among its peers (Carruades de Lafite, Forts de Latour, Pavillon Rouge) by offering each vintage a great Pauillac, full, fleshy, muscular, barely less deep and full-bodied than its famous big brother but with the same cassis finish. Little Sheep has grown up!

    Rated 93+/100 by Neal Martin after bottling « Philippe Dhalluin told me that it underwent a severe selection, representing just 21% of the production of Mouton-Rothschild. That really tells since there is wonderful harmony and precision towards the finish. Le Petit Mouton is certainly growing up. Superb. » (February 2020)

    Rated 92+/100 by Antonio Galloni after bottling « The potent, plush 2017 is full of explosive energy that is just waiting to be unleashed. [...] It will be interesting to see if the 2017 ultimately softens a bit from here. » (March 2020)

    TMouton-Rothschild is the cheapest, but also the one with the most full-bodied character and the best ageing potential of the Médoc premiers crus. Its upgrade in 1973 from second to first grand cru classé was legitimate and greatly deserved.

    The 2016 vintage is triumphant: rated 20/20 by the Revue du Vin de France "The legend is there".

    The 2012 vintage « a major success of the vintage » has obtained 94/100 by Wine Advocate.
