Mouton Cadet Bordeaux Rouge
Mouton Cadet is the brand name of a popular range of modestly priced, generic Bordeaux wines, considered Bordeaux's most successful brand. Created by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Mouton Cadet wine is produced through the assembly of a variety of grapes, from several Bordeaux region appellations.
Colour: An intense, glittering garnet red.
Nose: The nose opens on red fruit aromas, especially cranberry and bilberry, with a hint of caramel, then goes on with airing to reveal notes of ripe fruit such as blackberry and cherry.
Palate: From a streamlined attack on fresh fruit flavours, especially bilberry and cherry, with a touch of herby garrigue, the wine develops a round and very rich mid-palate, culminating in a long and highly elegant finish on spice notes, especially white pepper.
