In 1930 Baron Philippe had the idea of creating a younger brother for Mouton Rothschild, using grapes grown on the same terroir. As the younger son (Cadet) in his own family, he named the wine Mouton Cadet, and the brand was born
One day, Nature’s magic turns the juice of grapes into the wines of Bordeaux and its various appellations. The next step is to taste the young wines and decide which ones make the best match. It is a joyful yet solemn moment, for the result will be Mouton Cadet.
Created by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1930, Mouton Cadet is a blend of wines from several appellations in the Bordeaux region, planted with classic grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) on exclusively selected parcels of our partners’ vineyards. It is a succulent, round and full-bodied wine.
