|Bottle size:||Standard (0.75L)|
|Number of bottles:||4|
The Bordeaux region has the largest appellation-controlled wine producing area in the world. Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur wines are made from a blend of traditional grape varieties in various proportions (usually with either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot as the dominant grape). They are generally fruity, medium-bodied wines that are best drunk fairly young. Wines laying claim to this description must be produced in the department of the Gironde, except for those from the sandy areas to the west and south. These wines are made according to strict rules, particularly regarding grapes varieties and yields. However, behind this apparent geographical uniformity, there are not only several types of wine (rosé, white and red) but also a wide variety of separate wine-producing areas (Libourne, Graves, Médoc, etc.). This classic, unchanging, consistent Bordeaux is not, in any sense, Mouton Rothchild's second wine, and cannot be compared to it. However, many wine drinker appreciate its well-rounded, supple character, and the fact that is produced with the expertise of a top château. MC is one of the most widely distributed brands in the world, of which millions of bottles are sold every year. Mouton Cadet was the first brand name wine, created by the Rothschild family in 1930. In that year Baron Philippe de Rothschild decided to downgrade his wine and sell it under the name Mouton Cadet. It was an immediate success. At that time it was still a Pauillac. In subsequent years there were not enough grapes, and they had to be sourced from other communes and wine producing areas. Mouton Cadet thus became a Bordeaux, produced every year. Its success has remained undiminished and a white Mouton cadet was created in the 1970s. There is now even a rosé. Read more
