Mouton Cadet

Vintage: 2016
Description: Winemaker Notes\r\n\r\nAn intense vermilion red with a slight crimson tint. The nose opens on aromas of ripe fruit such as Burlat cherry. Airing brings black fruit notes to the fore, especially blackberry, Burlat cherry and bilberry, along with a touch of mild spice. A rich and smooth attack which expresses all the fruit on the nose leads into a full mid-palate with hints of cinnamon and a round, powerful finish on substantial and very well-rounded tannins.\r\nAbout Mouton Cadet\r\nIn 1922, the 20-year-old Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988), youngest son of Baron Henri and great-grandson of Baron Nathaniel, took the destiny of Mouton Rothschild in hand. During his reign which spanned more than 60 years, his decisions would profoundly change the world of wine, raise the image of the family ch\u00e2teau to unparalleled heights and considerably increase the range and geographical scope of its activities.\r\nNearly 90 years after its birth, Mouton Cadet is the result of a history between Bordeaux wines and Baron Philippe de Rothschild. The youngest of the family and the owner of Ch\u00e2teau Mouton Rothschild, he was keen to bring the richness of the prestigious Bordeaux region to consumers worldwide.\r\n\r\n\r\nIn 1988, following the death of her father, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild pursued the work and philosophy of Baron Philippe : to make a great Mouton Cadet Bordeaux wine accessible to a wider worldwide audience.\r\nA tireless ambassador, she promoted the brand on every continent and made Mouton Cadet the biggest selling branded Bordeaux wine in the world. In her constant quest for innovation, in 2004, she gave Mouton Cadet a new, more fruit-forward style. The bottle, designed by Baroness Philippine herself, also got a makeover.\r\nPhilippine de Rothschild died in Paris on 22 August, 2014. Her three children, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Camille Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild, both members of the\r\nPhilippe Sereys de Rothschild succeeded his mother as Chair of the Supervisory Board\u00a0in September 2014\u00a0then became\u00a0Chairman and Ceo of the family company in\u00a0April\u00a02018.\r\nWhile continuing\u00a0his grandfather\u2019s, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, and his mother\u2019s, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, remarkable work,\u00a0Philippe Sereys de Rothschild\u00a0is determined to further enhance Mouton Cadet\u2019s reputation worldwide and proud, with the launch of the 2015 vintage, to open a new chapter in the history of a great brand.\r\nWith his sister, Camille Sereys de Rothschild, and his brother, Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild, they are guided by the same ambition: to open a new era for Mouton Cadet and take the brand even higher, even further!
