A dense, creamy second wine of Mouton with blueberries and hints of chocolate and black olives. It’s full-bodied with round, ripe tannins and lots of pretty fruit. Love the integration of fruit and tannins. Intense and long. 68% cabernet sauvignon and 32% merlot.
The second wine of the château, the 2019 Le Petit Mouton De Mouton Rothschild checks in as 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot. It's a gem of a second wine and offers a classic Pauillac style as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It tastes far from a second wine, with loads of crème de cassis, shaved cedar pencil, green tobacco, and a touch of minerality. It tastes like a mini-Mouton, and in truth, not too mini.
The 2019 Le Petit Mouton was blended earlier than usual at the end of November and sees 50% new oak. It has a bold nose that wants to make a statement: copious black fruit, raspberry, hints of gingerbread and marmalade in the background, a multi-faceted nose that I have come to expect from this Deuxième Vin in recent years. The palate is just gorgeous: seductive black fruit laced with white pepper, very fine tannins, pitch perfect balance and an exceedingly precise finish that is frankly Grand Vin worthy. Outstanding.

A very moreish Petit Mouton with plump fruit and clear coffee and mocha beans - a signature of this wine and people who love its unashamed glamour will adore this vintage. It has welcome astringent tannins on the finish and overall this is delicious. There are not many 2nd wines that can truly stand on their own but this is very much one of them. Harvest September 18 to October 5. (JA)
Composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot, harvested from the 18th of September to the 5th of October, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2019 Le Petit Mouton charges out of the glass with gregarious scents of baked black cherries, plum preserves and blackcurrant cordial followed by hints of cumin seed, candied violets and licorice with a waft of dried Provence herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate has a real skip in its step, offering fresh, cheery black berry flavors and a grainy texture, supported by oodles of freshness, finishing long with invigorating spice and herbal sparks.

This is a powerful second wine for Mouton-Rothschild. While soft and rich in feel, it offers concentrated flavors of juicy blackberry. The tannins, initially soft, show a core of dryness that balances the acidity. The wine has fine medium-term aging. (RV)
Another second wine loaded with charm. Expressive cassis nose with plenty of lift and freshness. Super touch of tannin, the texture smooth and silky. Good definition as well with plenty of length on the finish. 17.5+/20 points.(JL)
