Le Petit Mouton Rothschild is the beautiful second wine from the Mouton Rothschild estate. An illustrious estate, with a fascinating history, Château Mouton-Rothschild has been making wine since Roman times. Under the management of the Rothschild family since 1853, it wasn’t until 1922 when Baron Philippe de Rothschild took the helm, that the estate transformed.
Le Petit Mouton Rothschild made its debut in the 1993 vintage. It’s made with grapes from younger vines in the First Growth vineyard, and is harvested, vinified and bottled with the same attention to detail as the grand vin. The result is a silky, soft and delicate wine, that will often contain flavours and aromas of blackberries, coffee and mocha.
