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!

A fantastic and full nose of blackberry jam, mineral and floral notes. Full-bodied, with exceptional purity of flavors. Lush and juicy on the palate with plenty of dark fruit flavors and a touch of minerality and spice on the finish. The tannins are ... John Perry.

The final blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot exhibits tell-tale black currant liqueur incense charcoal and floral-like characteristics. The oak is pushed to the background one of the major improvements director Philippe Dalhuin has made at this estate. Full-bodied deep and impressively endowed it is a deep rich less massive effort than either the 2010 or 2009.

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

A fantastic and full nose of blackberry jam mineral and floral notes. Full-bodied with exceptional purity of flavors. Lush and juicy on the palate with plenty of dark fruit flavors and a touch of minerality and spice on the finish. The tannins are integrating nicely and this has terrific length. A solid effort!

Some of the finest wines produced in Chile, particularly from the Carmenere grape, are being bottled and sold under the Terrunyo label under the direction of veteran winemaker Ignacio Recabarren.

The initial aromas of this cabernet recall cassis and chocolate, with hints of menthol placing it in Alto Maipo. The tannins are still young, with plenty of juicy, ripe red fruit to balance them. The finish is long and complex. For short term aging.
