Mouton Cadet Bordeaux (2004)

Mouton Cadet Bordeaux 2004This Mouton Cadet Bordeaux 2004 consists of a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. I purchased this wine for just under $10. I am enjoying the wine but I can’t, in good conscious, rave about it. The complexity is not what I had expected from a French Bordeaux. It is quite simple, but very drinkable. I have made a beef stew for our dinner tonight and I am not certain this wine will hold up well, but we’ll see. The nose is pleasant but it is not particularly savory. While the taste is lovely, it is not complex. And, finally, the finish is brief.

All in all, this is a highly drinkable wine with absolutely nothing objectionable about it. It is just that it is simple and should be enjoyed as a simple, mid-week quaff.

The label says, “Le vin il nait, puis il vit, mais point ne meurt en l’homme il survit.” (Wine is born, and ages, but it never dies, for it lives on within the drinker.)
