Baron Philippe de Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Médoc Mouton Cadet 2009
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.
External Reviews for Baron Philippe de Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Médoc Mouton Cadet
Light straw in color. A fresh nose with floral notes and a hint of toast. Expressive with ripe fruit and a slight mineral tinge.
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.
Dichtes Granatrubin. Reife Heidelbeeren, Holundergelee und typische Cassisnote in der schwarzbeerigen Nase. Samtiger Auftakt, gleichmässiger Druck, gut stützendes Extrakt mit feiner Maulbeernote. Noble Tabaknote, helles Edelholz und feine Pfeffernote im wiederum samtigen Finale.
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.
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.
A dense red with a pronounced purple tint. The nose is expressive and complex, rich in fresh and ripe fruit aromas, especially red cherry and morello cherry, with a touch of spice.
