The 2019 Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild is one heck of a second wine and has a rare level of depth and density. This Le Petit Mouton Rothschild has a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot. This Pauillac wine reveals a dense ruby purple hue to go with textbook Pauillac notes of cedar pencil, smoke tobacco, spice box, blackcurrants, and graphite. Deep, rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, it’s probably better than many vintages of the Grand Vin. I absolutely love its purity of fruit, balance, and structure.
It was in 1853 that Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Chateau Brane Mouton at auction. Located in the heart of the Médoc, in the appellation of Pauillac, the estate was renamed Château Mouton Rothschild. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins of the property. A visionary, he decided to initiate bottling directly at the estate and also designed a label for the wine. In 1973 Château Mouton Rothschild became a First Classified Growth. An icon of the Pauillac appellation, Château Mouton Rothschild has produced magnificent Bordeaux wines, known by wine lovers around the world.
