Mouton Cadet Bordeaux Rouge 2011
This wine has a dense, deep red color, shading to cherry at the edge and a seductively, nicely open nose with intense blackberry and cassis aromas and a slightly floral note reminiscent of violet. From a round and crisp attack with a fine structure of already well-rounded, creamy tannins, it develops an ample and expressive body of red berry fruit with a touch of something mineral.A seductive wine, its undoubted qualities display all the complexity and harmony of an exceptional vintage and the promise of greater richness to come.
A classy, aspirational wine...reaches for higher heights but doesn't quite get there. Somewhat like a well-built chair that is, none-the-less, slightly uncomfortable, or a new pair of Cole Haan penny loafers. A serious, well-structured, and altogether pleasing wine. Even keeled-all around, but really rasps on the old tongue going down, with some fully-expressed (though not distasteful) bitterness, much like the sharp-tongued Spanish maiden who gracefully spurns your advances. I'd go back to the well any day...
One of my favorite, inexpensive Bordeaux wines. Smooth, clean, tannin
