Description

Characteristics and tasting tips for Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2023

Tasting

Colour
The colour reveals a beautiful dark red hue, adorned with carmine reflections.

Nose
Expressive, the nose seduces with its fruity fragrances (blackberry, blueberry), spices and white pepper.

Palate
The attack is broad and fresh. As the tasting progresses, the palate reveals lively and silky tannins, a creamy texture as well as delicious vanilla, minty, fruity and liquorice flavours.

A Second Wine from Château Mouton Rothschild marked by elegance and complexity

The estate

It was in 1853 that Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Château Brane-Mouton at auction. The estate, located in the heart of the Médoc, in Pauillac, was then renamed Château Mouton Rothschild. In 1922, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins of the estate. Visionary, he decided to initiate in 1924 the complete bottling at the château while entrusting the illustration of the cru label to an artist. Each year since 1945, the label of Château Mouton Rothschild is illustrated by the original work of a great contemporary artist. Dalí, César, Miró, Chagall, Warhol, Soulages, Bacon, Balthus, Tàpies, Koons, Doig… an exciting collection that grows each year with a new work and constitutes the famous exhibition "Art and Label". Emblem of the Pauillac appellation, this Premier Cru Classé makes the great wines of Bordeaux shine throughout the world. Today, it is the three children of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Camille and Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild who preside over the destiny of Château Mouton Rothschild.

The vineyard

The Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild is a Pauillac wine from a vineyard located northwest of Bordeaux, in the Médoc. The vines are planted on pebbly gravel soils that capture heat and release it during the night, thus promoting the ripening of the grapes. These draining soils rest on a clay-gravel subsoil, giving the wines of the estate a power, elegance and unique tannic structure.

The wine

The Petit Mouton is the second wine of Château Mouton Rothschild.

The vintage

Mild and relatively humid, spring promotes rapid vegetative growth. The bud break in early April is not impacted by the frost episode at this time. Flowering is recorded at the end of May with a 5-day lead. Despite June being recognised as the hottest since 1962, the vineyard maintains its lead. The end of summer is punctuated by two heatwave episodes at the end of August and the beginning of September before the start of the harvest, which is partly carried out under unstable conditions.
