Drinking Window: 2019-2040

Vintage/Vineyard Notes:

    • The 2015 vintage in Bordeaux was exceptional, marked by a long, warm summer and dry, sunny autumn. These ideal conditions led to perfectly ripened grapes with intense flavours and concentrated tannins.
    • Le Petit Mouton grapes are sourced from select vineyards across Pauillac, benefiting from the same meticulous viticultural practices as the Grand Vin.
    • The blend for the 2015 Le Petit Mouton is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (78%), with Merlot (17%) and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Winemaking:

    • Traditional methods used at Chateau Mouton Rothschild ensure the highest quality in Le Petit Mouton.
    • Hand-harvesting ensures only the best grapes are selected.
    • Careful sorting and meticulous fermentation techniques preserve the fruit's natural characteristics.
    • The wine undergoes aging in a combination of new and used oak barrels, allowing for the development of complex flavours and smooth tannins.

Critics' Reviews:

    • 96 Points - James Suckling: "Extremely perfumed with dried flowers and dark berries such as plums and cherries. Sandalwood, too. Full body, integrated tannins and chocolate, walnut and cedar character. Goes on for minutes. Superb second wine of Mouton. Drink in 2022."
    • 17.5/20 Points - Jancis Robinson MW: "Tasted blind. Glowing crimson. Sturdy and solid with hidden depths of savour. Dry but not drying finish. Really attractive wine. One of the most impressive vintages of this wine.
