Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Produced from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot, this sexy, seductive Le Petit Mouton is round, generous, elegant and pure with lots of blue and black fruits and no hard edges. Drink this seamless, impressive 2008 second wine over the next 10-15 years." --Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Deep ruby color. Wonderful blackcurrant, black cherry, and raspberry fruit and hints of mint. Chocolate notes, well integrated oak, velvety tannins, and medium acidity. Excellent length.

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!

Very solid beam of raspberry and black currant fruit here, caressed by sweet toast, cocoa and smoke notes. Hints of loam and tar on the finish, which is juicy and ripe. Delicious and should age nicely in the short-term as well. Drink now through 2005.

Chilean wine giant Concha y Toro produces several different brands; one of the most consistent values is the Marqueacute;s de Casa Concha series. This fresh and focused wine is 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 18 months in 35 percent new oak barriques from France. It shows ripe varietal flavors of cassis, blackberry and boysenberry, accented by vanilla, mineral and cocoa notes.

Rock-solid, with nicely integrated structure for the vintage, allowing the full-bodied core of loam, blackberry, fig sauce and raspberry to stretch out, with lingering mint and cocoa notes on the plush, fleshy finish.

The second wine, Le Petit Mouton, continues to go from strength to strength. The 2008, a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot, represents 24% of the production. Notes of incense, graphite, and black currants are followed by a wine with sweet... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Le Petit Mouton 750ml

This sensational value has a range of flavors; structure and other important characteristics that some wines costing five times more canrsquo;t match. The nose is full of plum, black fruit and coffee, while the palate is pure dynamite; itrsquo;s a textbook modern Cabernet that hits the target squarely in the center.

Marcelo Papa makes this wine from a sector of the same vineyard where Don Melchor grows, and in 2001, he has made the best Marqueacute;s cabernet yet. The winersquo;s strawberry and cassis flavors fill out a voluptuous texture, their freshness and juicy richness balancing the ripe tannins. Try it with roast duck and raspberry sauce.
