Le Petit Mouton 2005
Tasting Notes Le Petit Mouton 2005
Juicy and delicious wine with plum and chocolate character. It's full-bodied yet has a round, soft texture. So delicious now. Ready.
Tasted at the Claret Club Mouton-Rothschild dinner. The Le Petit Mouton 2005 is open and generous on the nose that is very 'Pauillac' with pencil lead dominating the rather 'strict' aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy entry, perhaps a little shallow, with touches of black olive and lemon rind interlacing the tannic, rather dry finish. Fine, but drink now. Tasted November 2010.
An excellent second wine, the 2005 Le Petit Mouton exhibits soft, lush, subtle herb-infused black currant fruit along with notions of licorice, smoke, and burning embers. Enjoy this well-made effort over the next 7-8 years.
