Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild – 2015
HarvestFrom 14 September to 2 October
Varietal mix78% Cabernet Sauvignon
5% Cabernet Franc
The exuberant and intense, almost radiant nose reveals perfectly ripe fruit which lingers on blackberry, toast, coffee and mocha aromas.
Roundness and elegance combine on the attack, while the mature body, displaying a lovely velvety, almost silky texture, reveals a remarkably soft and refined mouthfeel, with a very pleasant touch of salinity.
A forward but already well-integrated tannic structure gives the wine a long and succulent finish on floral and fruit notes.
