The wine has a fine, deep red color, clean and brilliant, and a full, rich bouquet marked by berry fruit aromas. Round and well-balanced on the palate, it is both supple and generous, displaying great elegance and refinement. It has good aging potential and can be enjoyed for several years after the vintage date.
External Reviews for Bordeaux
Clean and fresh, with berry and mineral character. Medium-bodied, with slightly chewy tannins and a medium finish. Well-made for the vintage. Real Bordeaux for a good price. Best from 2010 through 2013.
Medium bodied with aromas of dark cassis, black cherry, and some green vegetable; hints of spice and herbs on the palate with good balance of acidity, alcohol, and tannins. For everyday drinking. Pork tenderloin.
Quite herbal, with some green beans and anise up front. Black fruit takes a back seat but is these if you look for it. Blackberry and beach plums come to mind. The tannins are a bit rustic.
Mouton Cadet is one of the most recognized wines coming out of France. It remains consistently good, both in quality and price, from year to year.
Branded Bordeaux has a deservedly spotty reutation, but this year's Mouton Cadet aims to start turning that around. Cherries and chocolate on the nose, followed by smoky, earthy tobacco and black-cherry flavors. A silky texture makes it ready to drink now.
A blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, this is a medium-bodied Bordeaux for everyday drinking. The understated black cherry and cassis fruit does seem a bit lean, but that's the vintage. Tobacco notes mark the finish.
