ASPECT: A lustrous mimosa yellow.
NOSE: The nose opens on aromas of white fruit (vine peach) and white blossom (acacia), going on to develop a hint of mild spice with airing.
PALATE: From a voluptuous and fruit-driven attack on attractive peach and citrus flavours, the mid-palate reveals a floral aspect with white blossom notes, while the highly expressive finish displays the unique minerality characteristic of the Graves terroir.
In 1922 Baron Philippe de Rothschild, then only 20 years old, took over the management of Château Mouton Rothschild, making the winery, with its first-class qualities and originality often far ahead of its time, one of the most important and well-known châteaux in the world World. One of Baron Philippes greatest achievements is the creation of the Mouton Cadet in 1930. The wine was originally conceived as a second wine by Château Mouton Rothschild and the baron, who himself was the youngest of three siblings, called him "Cadet" (dt "the youngest "). The Cuvée soon became the favorite wine of restaurants all over the world and became the first Bordeaux wine. Mouton Cadet enjoys great international recognition and is considered a symbol of the wines of the Rothschild family in the middle price segment.
