Baron Philippe de Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée Mouton Cadet 2008
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.
nose...vegatal, red fruit.......big attack with a long dry finish...nice fruit
Was not overly impressed with this one. Very earthy. Leather. Very little fruit at all. Almost nothing on the palate at first until you swallow and then it all comes rushing in. Finish does linger for a bit but it's all earth and leather but with decent tannins. Got this for ten bucks at the local liquor store. I can list a ton of wines for ten dollars that I'd prefer to this one. Try the '09 Augey Bordeaux. Not quite as earthy and with lots more fruit for the same price. May have been better with a big thick steak. Didn't match well with spaghetti. Drinkable, but that's about it.
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!
Didn't work for me.
External Reviews for Baron Philippe de Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée Mouton Cadet
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.
Light straw in color. A fresh nose with floral notes and a hint of toast. Expressive with ripe fruit and a slight mineral tinge.
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.
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.
The wine has a deep red color. The nose is intense with blackberry and cassis aromas. On the palate, notes of red berry fruit unfold with a touch of mineral. Finishes with well-rounded tannins.
