What some may call "herbaceous character" I found to strongly resemble the smell of my garbage can. I found no reason to think that the bottle was corked or otherwise bad. Poured the bottle out.
External Reviews for Mouton Cadet Blanc Bordeaux
A good white Bordeaux does not have to cost a fortune. This one has lots of Sauvignon character, with grass, celery and toasted oak. Medium-to-full-bodied, with good acidity and plenty of fruit on the finish.
Crisp and focused, with a nice touch of richness, straightforward and appealing lemon, herbal and grassy flavors. Drink now.
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, this easy-drinking white works just as well on its own as it does with food.
Lightly perfumed, this white Bordeaux shows the fresh character of the 2006 vintage. The acidity is poised, lifted and goes well with the pink grapefruit flavors. Drink this summer.
Light straw in color. A fresh nose with floral notes and a hint of toast. Expressive with ripe fruit and a slight mineral tinge.
The year is a fine one for white Bordeaux, and this vintage of white Mouton-Cadet takes good advantage of the fresh, herbaceous character, with an added citrus tang, and spiced up with some aromatic Muscadelle.
