The Mouton Cadet Réserve Sauternes AOC by Baron Philippe de Rothschild presents itself bright golden in the glass. The complex bouquet opens in a mix of white and yellow fruits such as peach, apricots, mirabelle and quince, as well as fresh, gentle notes of anise and bergamot with a touch of honey and orange zests in the background. On the palate, this typical and elegant Sauternes is richly aromatic, gentle, juicy, powerful and rich, body and sweetness are wonderfully balanced. In the long finish appear sweet aromas of yellow fruits, with nuances of apricots and caramel, with a pleasant freshness in the aftertaste.
Vinification of the Mouton Cadet Réserve Sauternes by Baron Philippe de Rothschild
The grapes for the Sauternes grow in the Sauternes region at the confluence of the small river Ciron into the warmer Garonne. In autumn fog forms here, the moisture promotes the formation of the noble mould Botrytis Cinerea, which causes the grapes to shrink and concentrate sugar, acid and other ingredients.
91% Semillon, 6% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle grapes are vinified for this Sauternes reserve from the Mouton Cadet wine line. They are read by hand, then gently pressed and then left on the mash for a longer period of time. The alcoholic fermentation takes place over several days. The fermentation process is stopped before all the sugar has converted into alcohol. This gives the wine its sweetness and unique taste.
The Mouton Cadet Réserve Sauternes is a successful example of a first-class Sauternes with an excellent price-performance ratio.
