Mouton Cadet Bordeaux AOP 2008 79+ Points

Mouton Cadet Bordeaux AOP 2008 79+ Points

Clear, bright cherry red with slight ruby core medium concentration, medium viscosity, no gas or sediment.

Clean, medium intensity with notes of cassis, bell pepper, currants and red berry medley, earthy pebbly note, lightly oaked, good complexity.

Dry with medium plus acidity, medium plus tannin, medium alcohol, new flavors of delicately ripe plums, cassis and currant, slight spicy core derived from oak, medium bodied, medium length and medium complexity, now until 2017.

Looking at the price of around 8 Euros, there are far better value and quality Cape Bordeaux Style blends, out there that I will recommend the world to seek out, there are a lot of 79+ Points South African red out there at a fraction of this price!
