The wine has a clean, brilliant cherry red colour.
Thenose is very attractive, on morello cherry and ripe berry fruit aromas with a highly elegant floral touch. From a round and smooth attack with well-integrated tannins, the wine remains silky while developing a muscular structure on the palate, complex, substantial and full of fruit, with juicy fresh fruit flavours reminiscent of raspberry and black cherry. The refinement, volume and length of the seductive finish show perfect balance in the varietal mix and the typical characteristics of the appellation.
Mouton Cadet Rouge is made from a blend of classic varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Merlot displays roundness and ripe red fruit flavors, Cabernet Sauvignon adds a tannic structure and touches of black berry fruit, while the Cabernet Franc provides elegance and freshness.
