Baron Philippe de Rothschild Mouton Cadet Red, Bordeaux, France, 2016 (750ml)Winemaker's Notes
Shows a red garnet color with a slightly crimson tint. On the nose, the wine opens on black fruit aromas of bilberry and blackcurrant, then with airing develops notes of refined spice, especially cinnamon. From a full and firm attack, richly fruited and very smooth, the round and lush mid-palate reveals blackberry flavors and toasted notes, leading into a long and complex finish on expressive fruit.
Pair with a fillet of pork, duck breast, and mild cheeses.
Blend: 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
