Baron Philippe de Rothschild le Rose de Mouton Cadet 2015
A glittering coral-pink color. The nose explodes in a riot of fresh, crisp fruit, especially redcurrant and raspberry, going on with airing to develop slightly riper fruit aromas and a touch of white blossom. The attack is acidulated and fruity. Red fruit flavors dominate throughout on the palate, showing elegant tannins and an attractive freshness. This succulent wine should be drunk young, at a temperature of 46 degrees F, in order to enjoy its freshness and fruit. Ideal for meals and aperitifs, it goes perfectly with summer salads, grilled chicken skewers, and Asian or Provencal food.
60% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon. Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A., established in 1933, is located at Pauillac in the Medoc. Famous for two centuries, first in banking then in wine, the Rothschild name comes from the German phrase "Das Rote Schild"—a reference to the Red Shield which originally served as the family sign. They have been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category—from the chateaux wines like the renowned Chateau Mouton Rothschild, their flagship wine, to branded wines such as the famous Mouton Cadet. In 1930, the idea of a wine "brand" was in its infancy. Nevertheless, wine visionary Baron Philippe de Rothschild created Mouton Cadet, and in essence, created the world's first modern wine brand. An instant success, Mouton Cadet is now a worldwide favorite, delivering the riches of Bordeaux to wine lovers around the globe. Selected by Baron Philippe de Rothschild's winemakers from the best parcels in the Bordeaux region, le Rose de Mouton Cadet is made and matured in the traditional way.
