Mouton Cadet Reserve Medoc. Baron Philippe de Rothschild 2012
*2012 Bordeaux Future. Delivery Fall 2015.*The 2012 Le Petit Mouton represents 38% of the crop, which is much higher than the normal 25% that usually makes it into the second wine. Composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, it reveals similar black currant liqueur notes, but they are less intense and pervasive. Administrator Philippe Dhalluin has fashioned a wonderfully opulent, round, juicy Petit Mouton exhibiting plenty of chocolaty notes intermixed with a subtle hint of oak offered in a lush, easily understood style.*Robert Parker Wine Advocate (90-92)We will notify you on arrival.

External Reviews for Mouton Cadet Reserve Medoc. Baron Philippe de Rothschild
An open-textured and rich-tasting red, this sings with a lively array of red and dark fruit flavors, dominated by currant and dark plum notes. Offers accents of black olive, with a dense and powerful finish of dark chocolate. Drink now through 2018.
Leathery, spicy, herbal berry aromas are a bit feral but remain typical of this variety. Jammy, fleshy and fruity on the palate, this exudes herbal plum and raspberry flavors with toasty, green notes. A minty, chunky, solid finish brings herbal notes that are indicative of the grape.
Ruby-like, bright in color. Fruit forward with red plum and varietal characteristics. Medium dry, medium body and harmonious with a good finish This wine marries two of the classic Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon offers character, complexity and longevity, while Merlot adds softer tannins and elegance, patterned after the same classic blend that distinguishes many fine chateaux of Bordeaux.
