Blending notes

Mouton Cadet Rouge is made from a blend of classic grape varieties : Merlot (84%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Cabernet Franc (6%). Merlot brings roundness and ripe red fruit flavours, Cabernet Sauvignon the tannic structure and touches of black berry fruit, and Cabernet Franc elegance and freshness.

Tasting notes

Aspect: An intense purple with a slightly carmine tint.

Nose: The nose opens with an explosion of aromas, especially wild strawberry, Burlat cherry, bilberry and blackcurrant. The fruit remains very present after airing, enhanced by additional soft spice notes.

Palate: The fruit on the nose emerges rapidly on the suplle and well-balanced attack, supported by silky, deep and dense tannins which give structure to the midpalate. The finish is remarkable for its rich fruit, enhanced by a touch of sweetness which completes the wine in a most attractive way.
