Each appellation selected by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild team has a unique terroir.
For Mouton Cadet Heritage the limestone soils of Entre-Deux-Mers and the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux produce wines of refinement, while the clay soils around Blaye give fuller-bodied wines.
The gravelly soils of Côtes de Bourg and the south of Entre-Deux-Mers bring elegance and freshness to the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Cassis, Complex, Powerfull
As befits a Pauillac, this wine is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is both rich and structured, benefiting from the 2016 vintage. Black-currant fruits and ripe tannins come together well.
To drink now but perfect if you wait until 2021!
Mouton Cadet Blanc is made from rigorously selected grapes grown by our partner winegrowers in the Entre-Deux-Mers, the best area for white grape varieties in the Bordeaux region.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild's winemakers monitor the selected parcels throughout the vegetation cycle, advising the growers on vineyard practices in order to meet the exacting quality standards of Mouton Cadet.
The monitoring of the vineyard and the grape harvest, the evolution of the methods of vinification and aging allowed us to round and soften the wine more, to refine the tannins, to increase their consistency in the mouth, to bring smoothness and bring toasted notes to the wine, while retaining the aromatic expression of ripe red fruit, characteristic of Mouton Cadet.
Cassis, vanilla, melted tannins... A glass full of good sensations preparing a happy final.
Saint-Estèphe, the most northerly of the Médoc appellations, has numerous clearly
delineated gravelly outcrops over a wide variety of subsoils ranging from limestone
and marl to clay. Baron Philippe de Rothschild has selected parcels with generous, draining soils that yield robust yet gentle wines.
