I'm quite impressed with this wine. It's juicy, succulent. Medium to full bodied. Slightly dry on the finish. It generally denotes a much more aged feel for a 2008. Your definitely getting you dollars worth here. It's sweet but not sweet, very well balanced. It reminds me of some much more expensive Napa Valley wines. Very smooth!

    The Le Petit Mouton has a huge majority of Cabernet Sauvignon at 93% - the highest percentage ever. The nose is quite floral and Margaux-like in style simple but perfumed. The palate is crisp and structured on the entry with plenty of graphite-infused black fruit originating from the Cabernet with a touch of dried blood towards the finish. This is a knockout wine from Philippe Dhalluin - real character and panache here. Tasted April 2014. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

    The Grand Vin is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc the latter close to exceptional according to Philippe Dhalluin. It has less new oak (85%) because the new wooden vats impart their own raw woody character. It has a well-defined classic bouquet that you might describe as "no frills". It does not have the usual Mouton flamboyance although that is not necessarily a bad thing. The palate is well balanced with clean and mineral-rich black fruit and a pleasant salty

    A delicate fruity style of the second wine of Mouton. Medium to light body. Light roasted fruit and spice. Fresh finish. 93% cabernet sauvignon and 7% merlot. James Suckling.

    Very aromatic and fresh with floral currant and cherry. Full to medium body with fine tannins and a bright fruity finish. I like the way it builds on the palate at the end. Salty too. 89% cabernet sauvignon 7% merlot and 4% cabernet franc. James Suckling.

    A supple red, with charming cherry and plum perfume notes. Theres good focus to the cassis and blackberry fruit, which is backed by a stylish finish. Tasted non-blind.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Le Petit Mouton 750ml

    Licorice, mineral and currant aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with fine tannins and a mineral and currant aftertaste. Quite chewy. Best after 2011. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Le Petit Mouton 750ml

    Winemaker's Notes:

    =RP Rating =WS Rating Color=Red 4-8 week delivery

    <p>This wine has a medium-deep crimson color that is versatile with very mild tannins. It's nose and palate have profiles that include red fruits and a background of light wood. It has great length in the mouth and a smooth long finish. Recommended with a variety of dishes including meat sauces, grilled poultry and most cheeses. &nbsp;</p>
