Petit Mouton 2019 (1.5L)
92 Points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Le Petit Mouton is notably serious this year, offering up a rich bouquet of minty berries, cherries, licorice and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a generous core of fruit, youthfully chewy tannins and a long, sapid finish, it will reward a bit of bottle age." 04/22
94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2019 Le Petit-Mouton is flat-out gorgeous. The energy, tension and delineation here are all first class. There is no doubt in my mind that in a previous era, this could have been a First Growth wine. Maybe not in a truly great vintage, but certainly in anything less than that. Bright red-toned fruit, rose petal, mint and blood orange all run through the 2019, lending notable depth to play off the wine's freshness. I am every bit as excited about the Petit Mouton as I was en primeur. It is a fabulous wine in every way. Wow!" 02/22
A luscious red with redcurrant, chocolate, plum and hazelnut. Rather opulent on the nose. Full-bodied and very structured with chewy tannins that are intense and powerful. This needs time to come together and soften. 68% cabernet sauvignon and 32% merlot. Better after 2027.
94 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: "A very moreish Petit Mouton with plump fruit and clear coffee and mocha beans - a signature of this wine and people who love its unashamed glamour will adore this vintage. It has welcome astringent tannins on the finish and overall this is delicious. There are not many 2nd wines that can truly stand on their own but this is very much one of them. Harvest September 18 to October 5." 5/20
93-95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck: "The second wine of the château, the 2019 Le Petit Mouton De Mouton Rothschild checks in as 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot. It's a gem of a second wine and offers a classic Pauillac style as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It tastes far from a second wine, with loads of crème de cassis, shaved cedar pencil, green tobacco, and a touch of minerality. It tastes like a mini-Mouton, and in truth, not too mini" 6/20
