Lot #213. Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pauillac.
Score: 94 NM.
"Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. A shockingly good score for a Second Wine but hey, this is blind tasting. The Le Petit Mouton 2008 has superb fruit intensity on the nose with blackberry, briary and a touch of cold tea. Well integrated oak, a little plusher than its peers, fresh with some expressive Merlot developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent fresh black fruit, crisp acidity and a nice crescendo of blackberry and cassis towards the structured finish. Great persistency and exuberance. Will it age as gracefully as the Grand Vin? Who knows, but it certainly proved its mettle blind. Tasted January 2012." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Mar 2012
Provenance: The Anacardier Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $200
