Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild – 2012
Harvest1st to 15th of October
Varietal mixCabernet Sauvignon 79%
Cabernet Franc 2%
An attractive, deep purple colour with a violet tint.
The nose is expressive and complex, on ripe fruit aromas reminiscent of bigarreau cherry and blackberry.
After an initial contact of remarkable gentleness and refinement, the palate fills out into a full and lush body on flavours of spice, vanilla and prunes in spirit, ending on a long and mineral finish.
