Tasting Notes Le Petit Mouton 2015

93-94

Very rich and chewy and polished. The soft and silky tannins coat your mouth. Full and savory. Excellent.

The 2015 Le Petit Mouton is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, matured in 40% new oak and the remainder one-year-old. It has a very intense bouquet for this deuxième vin, a far cry from the rustic wines produced in the 1990s. It is almost opaque, a wall of blackberry, cassis and tobacco aromas, perhaps the most powerful that I have ever tasted under this label. Over ten minutes, I noticed it become more sensual and rounded. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, like the aromatics, incredibly powerful and assertive. Wonderful delineation here, very mineral-driven with a bravura of a finish. It begged the question...is this really a second wine? Maybe they should rename it "Le Grand Mouton"? It is amazing to think how humdrum vintages of this were in the 1990s. This is a completely different wine to those.

By the standards of some second wines in 2015, this is a slight disappointment, showing a lot of oak, notes of chocolate and green pepper, firmish tannins and layers of ripe, dark fruits. Attractive enough, but not subtle. Drink: 2020-26

78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. 29% of the crop. Lively aromatic wine. Pretty sinewy and vigorous with real ripe fruit but overall dry on the end. A little austere at this point. But in the middle there is palate weight.
