Mouton Cadet Reserve Medoc 2015, A.C. Medoc
Mouton cadet rouge was first released in 1933 and has grown to be the most successful branded wine of Bordeaux. In the mid 1990’s the Reserve range was launched. Each wine would carry the name of an individual appellation and therefore represents a step up in quality from mouton cadet itself, which carries the general AC Bordeaux status. The range utilises Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s extensive partnership scheme in which technical supervisors work very closely with growers to ensure the best quality grapes are produced. The grapes are then vinified by Baron Philippe’s team at the Saint Laurent Médoc winery in Bordeaux.
The complex nose opens on fresh fruit and refined spice aromas, going on to develop toasted notes and a hint of blackcurrant. The remarkable and expressive bouquet of this Réserve Mouton Cadet combines the concentration of small black fruits with subtlety and elegance of violet notes. Powerful by its present, silky and coated tannins, this red wine bears the characteristics of its appellation. A round and velvety wine that will conquer your palate!
