Le Petit Mouton De Mouton Rothschild
Château Mouton Rothschild is a wine estate located in the village of Pauillac in the Médoc region, 50 km north-west of the city of Bordeaux, France. Originally known as Château Brane-Mouton, its red wine was renamed by Nathaniel de Rothschild in 1853 to Château Mouton Rothschild. In the 1920s it began the practice of bottling the harvest at the estate itself, rather than shipping the wine to merchants for bottling elsewhere.
Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild is the second wine of Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Made with grapes with selected younger vines of the illutrious first growth vineyard, it is harvester vinified and bottled with the same scrupulous attention to detail.
Back on 2018 a guy named Gordon posted a review for Tripadvisor about how was visiting the Chateau Mouton Rothschild: A huge disappointment was our visit to Mouton Rothschild. We were charged 60 Euro each and processed through with a dozen other visitors in contrast to the other vineyards where we were taken around on our own free of charge. The guide was clearly not knowledgeable which was irritating and dragged us around looking at artefacts which we had not come to see. The purpose of our visit was to sample their wines and see the original paintings which had been used on their different vintages over the years. After two hours we had to leave and asked if we could at least walk through the gallery but this was denied. So no wine tasting or sight of the paintings. We do have some of their wine in our cellar but no longer look forward to drinking it.
