Baron Philippe de Rothschild Mouton Cadet Blanc 2013
Brilliant straw-yellow color. A complex and elegant nose in which boxwood aromas mingle with tropical fruit and citrus notes, especially grapefruit. A harmonious wine with a full, fruit-driven attack, displaying a range of citrus and white blossom flavors and a nicely mineral touch on the finish. A good balance between roundness and freshness. A highly elegant wine that leaves lingering fruit flavors in the mouth.
65% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon. 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.
