(From 2009 Vintage) A dense red with a pronounced purple tint. The nose is expressive and complex, rich in fresh and ripe fruit aromas, especially red cherry and morello cherry, with a touch of spice. The attack, on the fruit, is rich and supple, the mid-palate full and fruity on silky tannins. Showing attractive length on the palate, it has a fresh and spicy finish that expresses all the typically character of the merlot and the very high quality of the vintage.
(From 2012 Vintage) Clean, brilliant cherry red colour. The nose is very attractive, on morello cherry and ripe berry fruit aromas with a highly elegant floral touch. From a round and smooth attack with well-integrated tannins, the wine remains silky while developing a muscular structure on the palate, complex, substantial and full of fruit, with juicy fresh fruit flavours reminiscent of raspberry and black cherry.
rich, elegant bouquet, it unites several varietal appellations of the Bordeaux. region. (Merlot65% / Cab-Sauv20% / Cab-Franc15%) Through it's balance, roundness, and aging capacity, the fruits of nature, and the work if human hands, Mouton-Cadet Rouge expresses the richness and variety of the Bordeaux region. As it finishes with an old-world finish of cherry and oak, this wine makes a wonderful companion to a hearty pasta or like meal.
musky, earthy nose. body is surprisingly soft and bland w a dry but too tannic finish
nice balance btwn fruit and tannin, would be great with red meat
I should know better than to buy a $10 Bordeaux.
mild fizz, bitter but easy going down
