Blended with 93 % of Cabernet Sauvignon and 7 % of Merlot, Petit Mouton 2014 has a deep and dense purple color. The highly complex, full and varied nose reveals ripe red fruit aromas mingled with succulent cocoa and vanilla, rounded off by slightly toasted, smoky notes combined with youthful oak. The attack of this Pauillac is succulent, lush and substantial, at once dense and silky, rounded, elegant tannins underpin a generous, full-bodied and well-balanced palate. The finish of second wine from chateau Mouton-Rothschild is straight as an arrow, deep and radiant.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Le Petit Mouton 2014 is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot, a very high percentage of the former, partly due to the higher quality of Merlot that predicated promotion into the Grand Vin. It has an intense pencil shaving nose that does not hold back. If you dont like Cabernet Sauvignon, dont come near. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannin on the entry. There is part of me wishing that there was some fleshy Merlot to alleviate some of the austerity coming through on the salty finish, though that dominance of Cabernet lends it a rather old school feel that I appreciate. Drink this not so small deuxième vin with a Cohiba! (N.B. Unlike the Grand Vin, in the second week the wine was showing a little more succulence on the finish and my scores takes account of this.)
