Description

The balance and richness of a Château Mouton Rothschild Second Wine

The estate

Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Château Brane-Mouton at auction in 1853. Located in the heart of the Médoc, in Pauillac, he renamed the property Château Mouton Rothschild. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins of the estate. A visionary, he decided to start bottling the wine directly on the estate, while at the same time designing the label. 1973 was the year Château Mouton Rothschild became a Premier Cru Classé. An emblem of the Pauillac appellation, Château Mouton Rothschild has helped the great wines of Bordeaux to shine throughout the world.

The wine

Le Petit Mouton is the Château Mouton Rothschild’s Second Wine.

The vineyard

Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2022 is a Pauillac wine from a vineyard north-west of Bordeaux, in the Médoc. The vines are planted on gravelly soils that trap heat and release it during the night, helping the grapes to ripen. These poor, draining soils rest on a clay-gravel subsoil, giving the estate's wines their unique power, elegance and tannic structure.

The vintage

The year 2022 is characterised by a hot, dry climate, although punctuated by rainy spells that recharge the soil. Despite the extreme heat waves, the vines adapted thanks to their deep roots. Flowering starts ten days early, and the grapes ripen in perfect conditions. Harvesting begins early in September, and the grapes are harvested with exceptional concentration and balance.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (71%)
Merlot (19%)
Cabernet Franc (7%)
Petit Verdot (3%)

Characteristics and tasting tips for Le Petit Mouton from Mouton Rothschild 2022

Tasting

Deep and dense on the palate, this wine combines blackcurrant and black cherry aromas with subtle hints of vanilla. Hints of smoke, graphite and chocolate enhance the silky structure of this remarkably long wine.
