Mouton Cadet Blanc

Bordeaux - White

750 ML


Product Description

The wine has an attractive, pale straw colour with a golden tint and a fresh, highly refined nose that opens on white blossom and citrus aromas. Ripe yellow fruit notes appear with airing, enhanced by the slightest mineral touch. Round and succulent on the palate, it strikes a lovely balance between Sauvignon crispness, bringing freshness, refinement and elegance, and a full lushness typical of Semillon and Muscadelle. Beautifully expressive, the flavours linger on a seductive and generous finish.


Varietal: Bordeaux - White

Region: Bordeaux

Region Description:

A region in western France that grows famous red wines from the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes and white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle grapes. Situated on the Atlantic coast, Bordeaux has a maritime climate with warm summers and fairly mild winters as well as an abundance of rain during harvest time. When young, the finest red Bordeaux wines have a deep cranberry hue and aromas of blackcurrants, plums, spice, cedar, and cassis. For the first ten years or so these wines can be very dry, with tannin masking the fruity flavors. Eventually the wines turn garnet, and develops an extraordinarily complex bouquet and flavor as well as softer tannins. The finest red Bordeaux wines still take 20 years or so before reaching their maturity. Two distinct red wine production zones exist within the Bordeaux region; the Left Bank and the Right Bank. The Left Bank vineyards are located west of the Garonne River and the Gironde Estuary, into which the Garonne empties. The Right Bank vineyards are east and north of the Dordogne River and east of the Grionde Estuary. Of the various wine districts on the Left and Right Banks, four are the most important for red wines: Haut-Médoc; Pessac-Leognan, St-Emilion, and Pomerol. For white wines, the most important are Graves and Pessac-Leognan.
