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
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.
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.
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.
The wine has a clean, brilliant cherry red colour.The nose is very attractive, on morello cherry and ripe berry fruit aromas with a highly elegant floral touch.
Most everybody's first Bordeaux is back for another year, with fruity black cherry aromas spiked with just a touch of vanilla and cedar. Juicy acidity keeps this crowd-pleaser lively through the lightly tannic finish. A good introduction to the genre.
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.
