CHATEAU MOUTON-ROTHSCHILD, 1ER CRU CLASSE Le Petit Mouton, Pauillac 2016

The second wine of <a href="/product/3303/1/2016/chateau-mouton-rothschild/1er-cru-classe,-pauillac?basket=41443">Chateau Mouton Rothschild</a> was first released in 1993. <strong>Le Petit Mouton</strong> takes its name from a small house next to the main Chateau, the official residence of Baron Philippe Rothschild’s wife and family. The Chateau’s modern age began in 1922 producing vintages through what were, at the time, cutting-edge techniques; though seen as revolutionary at the time, many of these methods are still in use today. This includes the groundbreaking concept of bottling all wine on the estate, allowing for an unprecedented level of control over the Bordeaux sold from Mouton-Rothschild.

Region Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most acclaimed appellation, the only one with three Premier Cru properties: Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Mouton-Rothschild and Château Latour.

Though winemaking techniques and microclimates vary throughout Pauillac, producing some variations in style, classic Pauillac wines have juicy flavours of blackcurrant and cedar, often with coffee, chocolate and graphite notes.

Struggling a bit for water, the vines produce grapes with high tannins and concentrated juices. Nearby rivers and the Atlantic Ocean modulate temperatures, preventing the grapes from ripening too quickly. Such grapes make powerful wines that may age and improve for decades.

However, in Pauillac, as in other old-world wine regions, some winemakers are working to develop softer red wines that maintain the local wines’ traditional substance and flavours, but are more approachable immediately upon release.
