Petit-Mouton-Pauillac-2016

Petit Mouton, (Pauillac), 2016

2016 Bordeaux Future
“The 2016 Le Petit Mouton is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc; it will be matured in 45% new oak, a little lower than in previous year (it used to be 60%). It has around 13.3% alcohol. It has a clean and precise bouquet with black berry, pencil shavings, crushed violet and a touch of oyster shell. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and ripe tannin, very harmonious and blessed with a satin-like texture. It is a more understated Le Petit Mouton, but you almost miss the precision and detail, the mineralit√© on the linear finish. This has great potential thanks to the sheer quality of the tannins here.” -Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (92-94 Points)
