Château Mouton Rothschild, Le Petit Mouton 2007

As with Les Forts de Latour, this puts on a show. Petit Mouton is resplendent with crème caramel and damson notes rather than coffee grounds however, and is a generous, graceful wine. So succulent, with a full 76% of well-ripened Cabernet Sauvignon – don’t tell me you couldn’t sink right into a bottle of this and go for it. Maybe the wine of the tasting for drinking today.
