Le Petit Mouton Rothschild 2000

Le Petit Mouton Rothschild - Chateau Mouton Rothschild

17 years

An unusual blend of 70% Cabernet Franc, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Merlot, the 2000 Le Petit Mouton is herbal and cedary, and just not my style, but I admire its singularity, purity, and overall balance. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. *** The 2000 Le Petit Mouton is somewhat monolithic, but reveals impressive concentration, power, depth, and fat. An atypical blend of 70% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot, it has 15 years of aging potential.

Le Petit Mouton Rothschild - Chateau Mouton Rothschild

Le Petit Mouton Rothschild is the second wine produced by the prestigious Chateau Mouton Rothschild. This traditional and hugely successful wine estate is in the village of Pauillac, situated in the Medoc region in the North West of Bordeaux, France. It is a consistent producer of the world’s top wines, with many claiming that the best clarets originate from this very Chateau.

The chateau’s frontrunner is the Mouton Rothschild, which was renamed from Brane-Mouton in 1853 by Nathan de Rothschild. Moreover, it is the first Chateau to fully grow and bottle the entire harvest. Chateau Mouton Rothschild is also a member of the fairly exclusive Primum Familiae Vini.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild also produces a second wine labeled Le Petit Mouton Rothschild. A signature style of the brands premier wine is the label; every vintage has a world famous artist or sculptor responsible for the fancy label artwork, and is a tribute to the prestige and success of this top rated chateau.
