Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2008

Mouton Rothschild

Case Format: 6x150cl

Max score: 17.5

Le Petit Mouton Rothschild is the beautiful second wine from the Mouton Rothschild estate. An illustrious estate, with a fascinating history, Château Mouton-Rothschild has been making wine since Roman times. Under the management of the Rothschild family since 1853, it wasn’t until 1922 when Baron Philippe de Rothschild took the helm, that the estate transformed.

Le Petit Mouton Rothschild made its debut in the 1993 vintage. It’s made with grapes from younger vines in the First Growth vineyard, and is harvested, vinified and bottled with the same attention to detail as the grand vin. The result is a silky, soft and delicate wine, that will often contain flavours and aromas of blackberries, coffee and mocha.

Slightly grey ruby. Very dense with some top-quality oak in evidence. Classy stuff! Very round and supple at the start with lots of wholesome fruit. Spicy and an array of flora on the palate. The finish is a bit chunky.

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. A shockingly good score for a Second Wine but hey, this is blind tasting. The Le Petit Mouton 2008 has superb fruit intensity on the nose with blackberry, briary and a touch of cold tea. Well integrated oak, a little plusher than its peers, fresh with some expressive Merlot developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent fresh black fruit, crisp acidity and a nice crescendo of blackberry and cassis towards the structured finish. Great persistency and exuberance. Will it age as gracefully as the Grand Vin? Who knows, but it certainly proved its mettle blind. Tasted January 2012.
