Since 1930, Mouton Cadet is a love story between fine Bordeaux wines and the Rothschild family. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took the helm of Château Mouton Rothschild and in 1930, the family created a younger brother for Mouton Rothschild using grapes grown on the same terroir. As the younger son (cadet) in his own family, he named the wine Mouton Cadet. In order to ensure constant quality, Mouton Cadet is sourced from over 400 partner winegrowers from the best region of Bordeaux.
Aspect: a glittering garnet red with a purplish tint. NOSE: the nose opens on soft spice aromas with touches of red fruit which come to the fore and expand with airing. Notes of aromatic herb (garrigue) also enhance and freshen the bouquet. PALATE: the attack is full and fruity, on red fruit flavours in harmony with the tannins. The finish lingers in the mouth, its length underpinned by persistent fruit and powerful tannins.
