Réserve Pauillac

Mouton Cadet Réserve Pauillac 2015

Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
74 days ago

Cora scored this wine: 91/100

Deep garnet-purple color. Decadent aromas of black fruits, cassis, floral, graphite and lead pencil shavings. Rich flavors of black cherries, plums, and spice aromas. Turns to dried mushrooms, sandalwood, with a touch of wet earth and wood. Full-bodied, polished tannins, and incredibly concentrated. A brilliant, classic wine - very smooth and drinking well already! Delicious!

Réserve St-Émilion

Mouton Cadet Réserve St-Émilion 2016

Bordeaux, France
74 days ago

Cora scored this wine: 90/100

You can serve this one slightly chilled; I think it will bring out the lively berry notes. The nose is restrained with hints of cherry, plum and fresh blackberry fruit. The wine has the right mix of red and dark fruit concentration, rounded out with leather, earthy, toasty oak, mocha, pepper and dried herbs notes. More mild in fruits than strong in tannins. The palate is nicely developed, but a little spicy, with a cheerful blackberry and black currant, finish. Well balanced. After taste could linger longer. Decent yet accessible Bordeaux.

Rouge

Mouton Cadet Rouge 2016

Bordeaux, France
74 days ago

Cora scored this wine: 85/100

The Bordeaux Rouge shows a red garnet color. On the nose, the wine is restrained with hints of cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant, then notes of refined spice, especially cinnamon, develop. The palate is nicely developed, with a delightful mix of red and dark fruit concentration, overlaid with earthy, toasty oak, and dried herbs. Balanced tannins. This wine reveals a long and complicated finish of blackberry flavors and toasted notes. PS. The Shore Club served "New York Steak Sandwich, cooked to just shy of medium, with tomato bruschetta, feta and balsamic." Very classic pairing.

Rosé

Mouton Cadet Rosé 2018

Bordeaux, France
74 days ago

Cora scored this wine: 90/100

Mouton Cadet Rosé blended of wines made using the direct pressing method. This method produces a lighter coloured wine than a classic Bordeaux Rosé. It is heaping with generous fruit aromas and flavours. The nose reveals fresh red fruit aromas, especially strawberry, raspberry and red currant. Then the wine develops notes of aromatic herbs, such as mint. Red fruit flavours on the palate, with a supple and delicate fresh and round finish. This straightforward wine is refreshingly fruity, with soft, yet crisp acidity. This delish wine is meant to be drunk young to enjoy its freshness and fruit. Ideal for meals and aperitifs, it will go perfectly with Provençal-style food.
