Baron Philippe de Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée Mouton Cadet 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Mouton Cadet Blanc has a brilliant, vivid color with pale gold highlights. The nose displays a rich palette of aromas, especially citrus and tropical fruit, set off by an elegant touch of green broom. Very smooth, it explodes with ripe fruit flavors on the palate, suggestive of grapefruit, mango and fresh apricot. Charm and roundness enfold the fruit on the rich and highly expressive finish.

Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, like the famous Mouton Cadet. Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA has also exported its know-how beyond Bordeaux: to the Pays d'Oc, with a range of varietal wines and, more recently, Domaine de Baron'arques; to California, with Opus One; and to Chile, with Almaviva. One of the key factors behind the company's undisputed success is the art of blending, which it practises with exceptional skill. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, the majority shareholder of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, works closely with the executive directors to maintain, modernise and develop the family business.

The fruit and minerality of this wine balance beautifully. I have to say that I enjoy all wine varietals for all of their unique attributes, but to me, the Mouton Cadet Bordeaux Blanc is what a Sauvignon Blanc based blend should taste like. And you can't beat the price point!

Beautiful, light golden color. Very fruity aroma immediately upon opening. Pineapple and honeydew coming across on the nose. Crisp and refreshing, low alcohol (12%). If Italian Pinot Grigio and CA Sauvignon Blanc had a baby, it would taste like this! Great buy - absolutely enjoyed it!

Soft, dark fruit on the nose, oak with maybe just a hint of dark cherry on the palate with a pleasing finish.

Herrliches Aroma roter Früchte, Cassis, Himbeere, unterlegt mit würzigen Nuancen (Zimt, Paprika) und einen Hauch Veilchen. Geschmeidig und kräftig im Gaumen, kernige Gerbstoffe, im Abgang lang und grosszügig.

Fruit forward, with notes of cassis, blackberry, and raspberry liqueur. Medium to full bodied, with firm tannins.

Dichtes Rubin-Granat. Reife Brombeeren und typische Cassisnote in der beerigen Nase. Samtiger Auftakt, gleichmässiger Druck, gut stützendes Extrakt. Noble Tabaknote und dunkles Karamell im wiederum samtigen Finale.

Mouton Rothschild's everyday drinking white Bordeaux; dry, crisp and full of delicious ripe melony fruit flavors; an excellent choice with a lightly grilled chicken.

The Mouton Cadet wine has always been a standby when you're looking for affordable Bordeaux.

Color: A dense, brillian red with a purple tint. Nose: A fresh and harmonious nose, rich in ripe berry and red fruit aromas, especially black currant and morello cherry. Palate: The attack is supple and fruity, on jammy fruit, and the tannins are silky and well-rounded. The slightly spicy finish expresses all the distinctive character of ripe Merlot.
