Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

From Bordeaux, the Mouton Cadet 2015 shows aromas of dark skin plum, blackcurrant, fern, hay, coffee, pepper and oak. Created in the early 1930s, after three bad harvests, Baron Philippe de Rothschild decided to create a wine with harvested grapes of lesser quality (not good enought for a first growth) and created the Mouton Cadet. The wine gained immediate success, giving the Baron no choice but to continue producing the Mouton Cadet. These days, the grapes mainly come from Entre-Deux-Mers AOC. In the palate, the wine develops notes of ripe plum, blackcurrant, tobacco, bay leaf, pepper, vanilla and oak. Well balanced, full bodied, with a fpleasant finish, the Mouton Cadet 2015 offers a well made wine from an amazing Chateau. Enjoy!!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
