2007 Mouton Cadet (half bottle)

Mouton Cadet Last week we opened a half bottle of the 2007 vintage regional blend Mouton Cadet of the famed Baron Philippe de Rothschild estate.  The Cadet is a reasonably popular mix of various sources from the greater Medoc area in the Bordeaux appellation.

Let me start by saying we quite enjoyed the balance and nose of this wine.  Although it might be considered a little pricey for French table wine, it displayed nice character and a smooth finish.  Our bottle presented well with a nice ruby red colour and we let it breathe for about 5-10 minutes before tasting.

Having amounted around only three years of maturity (as of writing) it is hard to say how much this wine would improve with age, it is likely better to consider the Cadet a good everyday drinking wine for appreciation now. 

The Cadet also comes in a reserve variety (not tasted) which may prove a better choice for medium term cellaring.

Check back soon, as we have another two articles to post shortly – stay tuned!

2007年木桐罗斯柴尔德男爵少年

上周我们开了一瓶2007年的一半年份区域融合了著名的罗斯柴尔德男爵村木桐学员。该少年是从更大的梅多克称谓在波尔多地区流行的各种来源的合理组合。

首先让我说,我们很享受的平衡,这种酒鼻子。虽然它可能被认为有点昂贵的法国酒桌上,它显示美好品格和光洁度。我们的瓶子也提出一个不错的宝石红色,我们让它呼吸品尝前约5-10分钟。

经额大约只有三成熟年(截至写作),很难说这酒多少会随着年龄的提高,有可能更好地考虑了良好的升值少年每天饮用葡萄酒了。
该少年还配备了后备品种(没有尝过),它可能成为中期窖藏一个更好的选择。

检查很快回来,因为我们有另外两篇文章后不久-敬请关注!
