Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2022 Released
The second wine of Mouton Rothschild was released yesterday. It is being offered by the international trade for £2,196 per 12×75, a 7.7% increase on the 2021’s opening price (£2,040 a case). Petit Mouton’s price increase of just 7.7% makes it one of the smallest increases amongst ‘investable wines’ on the 2021 price. This wine tends to do very well on the secondary market. In fact the 2022 vintage is the second cheapest on the market as seen below.
Interestingly, Petit Mouton prices on Liv-ex are most heavily correlated with age rather than score. In fact every vintage from the last 10 years has gone up in value considerably. we will be taking our full allocation of this fantastic wine.
Neal Martin (Vinous) scored the wine 92-94 points. In his tasting notes, he describes how “it opens extremely confidently in the glass” and goes on to call it “an outstanding Le Petit Mouton.”
Lisa Perrotti-Brown (The Wine Independent) gave it a barrel range of 92-94+ points and mentions in her tasting note that the wine ‘needs considerable swirling to unlock notes of creme de cassis, stewed plums, and black cherries, with hints of charcoal, wood smoke, black olives, and tar’.
Jane Anson awarded it a score of 95 points and said it is ‘one of the first wines that made me see the potential greatness of the vintage’.
