By an official decree issued in 1973 by Jacques Chirac, Minister of Agriculture at the time, Château Mouton Rothschild would be declared the fifth Ier Grand Cru Classé, alongside Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Haut-Brion, Château Latour and Château Margaux.

Description Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2008.

With its deep, intense color, Petit Mouton 2008 impresses with its charming nose of pronounced expressions of red fruits and sweet spices.

Raspberry, redcurrant but also tobacco come together greedily.

In the background, wood comes to bear witness to barrel aging.

On the palate, it reveals itself to be elegant and balanced. The well-integrated tannins offer a supple texture.

The red fruit aromas are confirmed, bringing great freshness.

Appreciable now, it still has lovely ageing potential.

All in all, a Second wine that perfectly reflects the excellence of Château Mouton Rothschild.
