Tasting Note:

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, showing on the nose some of the exoticism more prevalent in the Petit Mouton. Quite restrained aromatically, with delicate vanilla and hints of tobacco leaf, but a very different story on the palate: immediately obvious is the wine’s scale and body, full, broad, and deep, with a firm structure and every cubic millimetre packed with flavour: toasty oak, buckets of blackcurrant, mocha complexity. The tannins are very fine and well integrated and the finish is long, fine and balanced. A very impressive Mouton indeed.
