Lots of sweet fruit and spicy oak greets the nose along with notes of candied herbs, dried tomato and black currant fruit. Supple yet bright, this shows a lovely, lively character in the mouth with a blend of red and black berry fruit wrapped around subtle herb and clear baking spice flavors. There's a hint of creaminess to the texture, and a touch of sweetness from oak but this remains refined with good power and lovely balance. The finish is moderately long with a nice blue plum and spice note. Very complete wine. 90pts
This is tight on the nose with aromatic French oak and a small core of rather precise, lightly candied black currant/blackberry fruit peeking out. A touch soft in the mouth, this nonetheless is well-balanced with a nice combination of weight and intensity. Like the nose, one gets an impression of a wine not giving up its all but what is here is very attractive: red and black currant fruit, a nice streak of earth, a hint of caramel from the oak, all leading to a lovely finish that is moderately long and fruit-driven (though not fruity), with the oak lurking until the finale, where it adds some peppery spice. 91pts
Three and a half glasses
Fruity wine. A little dry at the finish. Very easy to drink, went well with roasted pork and beef.
This wine was described as a vinho verde, which it is NOT. It is very inexpensive and delicious. The server was kind enough to write down the name of the bottle -- very good with fish and excellent alone.
We got blackberry and plum on the nose with tobacco and a hint of light roast coffee. The mouthfeel was particularly smooth and round. On the palate, cinnamon candies, black cherry, plum, and caramel were detected. The finish was smooth as well, lingering with the taste of berry cola. There was little acidity and soft tannins overall.
Dark berries and spicy. A hot and tannic.
Nice, peppery fruit. 94 pts. -Wine Spectator Grand Tour 5/5/12
I find myself smacking my lips long after finishing a glass. This was really layered: coffee and dark berries on the nose; juicy fruit on the palate; vanilla and toasty oak on the finish. Lots of body with very smooth, soft tannins. I wonder how this would fare with steak & chimichurri, would it stand up?

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

The 2009 vintage is administrator Philippe Dalhuin-s finest effort to date. I don-t think I have ever enjoyed a Le Petit Mouton (which represents 27% of their total production) more than his 2009, which is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlo... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Le Petit Mouton 750ml
Aromas of smoke, bacon and ripe fruits, follow through to a full body, with lots of blackberries and bramble berries. Velvety tannins, with lovely intensity and balance. Gorgeous wine.

Mouton Rothschilds second wine is showing increasing stature. This vintage shows spice, new wood and Mouton's signature acidity. It has a soft, rounded texture, with a plump, warm feel. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Le Petit Mouton 750ml
This is really exceptional with beautiful chocolate and blackberry character. It's full and velvety with gorgeous ripe tannins. Loving this. Wonderful richness and length. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Le Petit Mouton 750ml
