Baron Phillippe De Rothschild Mouton Cadet Blanc Sauvignon Semillon Muscadelle 2011
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.
Natalie's tasting note, score, food pairings and recipes for this wine
Reviewed August 3, 2012 by Natalie MacLean
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|COLOUR: BRILLIANT STRAW YELLOW. NOSE: A COMPLEX AND ELEGANT NOSE ON WHICH BOXWOOD AROMAS MINGLE WITH TROPICAL FRUIT AND CITRUS NOTES, ESPECIALLY GRAPEFRUIT. PALATE: A HARMONIOUS WINE WITH A FULL, FRUIT-DRIVEN ATTACK, DISPLAYING A RANGE OF CITRUS AND WHITE BLOSSOM FLAVOURS AND A NICELY MINERAL TOUCH ON THE FINISH. A GOOD BALANCE BETWEEN ROUNDNESS AND FRESHNESS. A HIGHLY ELEGANT WINE THAT LEAVES LINGERING FRUIT FLAVOURS IN THE MOUTH.|
