Petit Mouton is the second wine of Château Mouton Rothschild, it delivers a taste of Bordeaux's esteemed Pauillac appellation, accessible yet sophisticated wine and ready to be enjoyed when it lands in 2026. Neal Martin agrees, writing, “If Mouton-Rothschild is beyond your budget—yes, I am familiar with that feeling—then this is where you should look.” 

Taurus Wines sourced this wine from our negociant in Bordeaux. It has been kept in ideal cellar conditions and offers the perfect provenance.

Pair with classic roast beef, game, lamb roasts, stews, or firm cheeses. Decant and filter carefully to remove sediment and leave for 2-3 hours. Serve at 16-17 degrees.

Drinking window: 2020 - 2035

"There is a hint of more musculature than expected on display in this restless wine.  Gone is the velvety sheen that a warmer vintage brings, and in place, we have more tension and glowering intent.   The perfume is spectacular, with trademark Mouton Cabernet thundering along at pace, then the tannins come in and bring the experience to a standing stop.  There is power matched with grace here, and yet it appears that the story on the palate follows the timeline of the vintage: generous and then firm and cool.  This is a mouth-wateringly spicy ‘The Other Mouton’, my nickname for this wine because there is nothing ‘Petit’ about it in 2023, and while it fires in all directions, there is trademark distinction here which will delight Mouton fans. This is not a diminutive Mouton in 2023, but another interpretation, and, interestingly, it comes from almost identical plots as last year’s wine, so perhaps L’Autre Mouton might catch on!" 18+/20 Matthew Jukes

"This is a tighter and more compact Petit Mouton with a full-bodied, compact palate that is framed nicely by the tannins. Savory and juicy. Structured. Contained. 79% cabernet sauvignon, 12% merlot, 7% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Better than 2022?" 95-96/100 James Suckling

"The 2023 Le Petit-Mouton is fabulous. It could easy be a Grand Vin at another address. Rich, ample and beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2023 impresses with its notable palate presence. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, cinnamon, rose petal and new leather are some of the many notes that build. The 2023 is seriously impressive. Wow!" 93-95/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"Slate and grip, clear again here that this is not the most exuberant of vintages, it's classical with a serious backbone. That doesn't mean that Petit Mouton isn't out to make you happy, and you can expect plenty of black chocolate, damson, black cherry, signature cocoa bean, espresso and salted cracker, but the tannins are pretty fierce." 94/100 Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
