About the 2015 Petit Mouton blend, Mouton-Rothschild wine estate decided to use 78% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% of Merlot, 5% of Cabernet Franc. The grapes were magnificent and fermentation took place quickly. About the contest, the wines immediately showed plenty of colour and a complete array of very intense aromas ranging from red and black fruits to spice and incense. On the nose, the exuberant and intense, almost radiant nose reveals perfectly ripe fruit which lingers on blackberry, toast, coffee and mocha aromas. Roundness and elegance combine on the attack, while the mature body, displaying a lovely velvety, almost silky texture, reveals a remarkably soft and refined mouthfeel, with a very pleasant touch of salinity. A forward but already well-integrated tannic structure gives this Pauillac a long and succulent finish on floral and fruit notes.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Le Petit Mouton is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, matured in 40% new oak and the remainder one-year-old. It has a very intense bouquet for this deuxième vin, a far cry from the rustic wines produced in the 1990s. It is almost opaque, a wall of blackberry, cassis and tobacco aromas, perhaps the most powerful that I have ever tasted under this label. Over ten minutes, I noticed it become more sensual and rounded. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, like the aromatics, incredibly powerful and assertive. Wonderful delineation here, very mineral-driven with a bravura of a finish. It begged the question...is this really a second wine? Maybe they should rename it Le Grand Mouton? It is amazing to think how humdrum vintages of this were in the 1990s. This is a completely different wine to those.
