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.
The winner of the second wines in 2015 is unquestionably the 2015 Le Petit Mouton De Mouton Rothschild, which is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend that includes 17% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Ripe, full-bodied, opulent and incredibly satisfying, with loads of crème de cassis, graphite, lead pencil and hints of tobacco, it has more depth and texture than most estate’s top wine.
This second label of Mouton Rothschild is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, representing approximately 25% of the crop. Medium-deep garnet purple colored, the 2015 Le Petit Mouton opens with ripe, seductive cassis, crushed blackberries and black forest cake notes giving way to hints of menthol, new leather, chargrill and bouquet garni. Medium to full-bodied with a bright, racy line of refreshing acidity cutting through the generous flavors, it has a solid frame of grainy tannins and a vibrant finish. Very impressive. (LPB)
This is the second wine with the most distinctive personality in the world, in my opinion. You smell and you smile. High Cabernet Sauvignon marks the aromatic and flavour profile, but this is a wine that always manages to make Cabernet show its sexy side. 50% new oak is showing just a touch more than usual perhaps, but it's a very, very enjoyable wine that manages to be enticing and fleshy yet fresh. 4% press wine.

The 2015 Le Petit-Mouton is a wine of nobility and pedigree. Sumptuous and generous on the palate, with gorgeous aromatic intensity, the 2015 has so much to offer. In this vintage, Petit is exceptionally refined and nuanced in every way. Time in the glass brings out the wine's more floral and red-toned side. Silky, ripe tannins add to the wine's total allure.

This wine is dense and packed with tannins. Its weight and smoky character balance against the generous black currants. Juiciness and acidity go together with the generous structure. Drink from 2024. (RV)
