Mouton Cadet Réserve Médoc by Baron Philippe de Rothschild presents itself in a glass intensely garnet red with delicate violet reflections. A complex bouquet unfolds on the nose with elegant fruity-sweet aromas of blueberries, blackberries, currants, toasted bread and caramelised plums.
On the palate fruity, gentle and juicy, full-bodied, with perfectly integrated tannins. The finish is typical of a Médoc wine very long and completes a complex and harmonious wine with a very good ripening potential.
