Petit Mouton 2020 released
Le Petit Mouton 2020, the second wine of Château Mouton Rothschild, has been released En Primeur for £2,040 per case by the international trade. This is 3% less than the current Market Price of the 2019.
The new release looks good value versus physical vintages, being the cheapest available Petit Mouton.
Both Neal Martin and Antonio Galloni at Vinous rated the second wine 92-94. Both noted the high (72%) proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend.
“Harmonious and poised with superb mineralité and tension toward the finish. So sophisticated. This is (yet another) great Le Petit Mouton,” said Martin.
“Gorgeous second wine,” said James Suckling, awarding a 97-98 point rating. Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW scored it 91-93 and Jane Anson 93-points.
Petit Mouton has the strongest correlation to age rather than scores. By that measure, the 2020 represents good value as a release.
Allocations are absolutely tiny here – so we have taken everything we can get hold of.
