Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2009

The 2009 Petit Mouton exhibits a purple-tinted dense red colour. On the nose, this Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Pauillac possesses infinite finesse, showing a good ripeness of the grapes saturated with sunshine in this sunny vintage. The dark berries aromatic palette outbursts without restriction on the palate on smashed blackberry and fleshy Burlat cherry notes. The whole is very delicate with subtle notes of spices and vanilla. The palate elegance distinguishes itself through its breadth and powerful tannin texture. The fruity finish extends the aromas with an intense length. 2009 Petit Mouton is a second vin (on principal) of great elegance. This Pauillac is harmonious and perfectly reproduces the greatness a Mouton-Rothschild terroir. 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 vintage is administrator Philippe Dalhuin's finest effort to date. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a Le Petit Mouton (which represents 27% of their total production) more than his 2009, which is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. Dense ruby/purple, with plenty of ripeness, it displays the famous Mouton creme de cassis intermixed with spring flowers, licorice and some background forest floor notes. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years.
