Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

On the nose, there are blackcurrant aromas as well as wet cedar, cinnamon, sweet tobacco, violet, and hints of black licorice.

On the palate, there are dark berry and tart black plum flavours, with expresso at the finish. It is medium bodied, has fresh acidity, and has moderate tannins. This wine would pair well with a Roast.

Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Earthy nose of mushroom, tobacco and cedar. Smooth on the palette with flavours of red fruit, coffee.

If you love big reds and are well familiar with new world wines for the grape names, but are unsure about old world wines, give this one a try!

You could pair with a beef dish, but an interesting paring could be a mushroom-based pasta dish to provide umami flavours together.

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!!

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Firm and structured, overall, a good value. Aromas of black currant, pepper, coffee and oak. Firm, structured tannins on the palate, and a lot of dark fruit and smoke on the palate. Pair with braised meats, stews, or any rich, cool weather fare.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This Bordeaux blend is enjoyed in 150 countries around the world, making it one of the most popular value-priced Bordeaux wines available. A blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc, from Bordeaux AOC and Cotes de Bordeaux AOC, showing the fruity and well structured style this value-priced wine is renowned for. Expressive blend of dark fruit, raspberry preserve, herbs, and spice, making this a great option for charcuterie platters, pulled pork, and braised beef. Tasted March 2021. 87 points.

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

So lots of dark plum and dried fig, smoky tobacco, black pepper. Good value Bordeaux for your roast of beef.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

a fairly simple wine. Not much on the nose, woody and leather. Nice fruits but short finish.
