The 2017 Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild wine has a medium to deep garnet-purple colored. This Le Petit Mouton wine leaps from the glass with notions of crushed redcurrants, black raspberries and cassis plus hints of rosehip tea, fragrant earth and mossy tree bark, with a waft of raspberry leaves. This Pauillac is medium-bodied, refreshing and elegant, it delivers wonderfully vibrant red and black fruit flavors with a harmonious, grainy texture and a perfumed finish. The Le Petit Mouton is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
This is a beautiful Petit Mouton, that has taken on volume and depth during ageing, but is still not quite packed with the exuberant character of this wine in the best vintages.
