Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Baron Philippe de Rothschild Mouton Cadet is the brand name of popular Bordeaux which is blend of grapes from several Bordeaux appellations. It was created in the early 1930s by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, who was the youngest son (hence the name “cadet,” referring to a younger son) of the aristocratic family that owned Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Following several poor vintages in the late 1920s, Philippe de Rothschild started Mouton Cadet as a second label, though over the decades it improved in quality and became one of the best selling wines in the world. The reserve blend was created in 1996. The Mouton Cadet Reserve brand now includes a Medoc, a Saint-Emilion, Graves Rouge and Blanc and a Sauternes. Mouton Cadet is distributed by Constellation Brands.


France, Bordeaux, Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most famous appellation, thanks to the fact that it is home to three of the region’s fabled first-growth châteaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Latour. Perched on the left bank of the Gironde River north of the city of Bordeaux, Pauillac is centered around the commune of Pauillac and includes about 3,000 acres of vineyards. The Bordeaux classification of 1855 named 18 classified growths, including the three above mentioned First Growths. Cabernet Sauvignon is the principal grape grown, followed by Merlot. The soil is mostly sandy gravel mixed with marl and iron. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “the textbook Pauillac would tend to have a rich, full-bodied texture, a distinctive bouquet of black currants, licorice and cedary scents, and excellent aging potential.”
