Cadet D'oc Cabernet Sauvignon Baron Philippe De Rothschild wine's ruby red color has a hint of purple. The complex nose is a mixture of jammy fruit aromas of blackcurrant and smoky, spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is both powerful and well-balanced. Fresh and fruity ripe black fruit lingers for a long harmonious finish. 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon.
This photo is incorrect. The product has a screw top, not a cork top. Why would that be the case? Was the product packaging changed mid-vintage?
Mouton Cadet, the world’s first French wine brand created in 1930, celebrates 80 years of history, boldness and passion in 2010. Since its first vintage, the wines of Mouton Cadet have stood for not only quality and tradition, but also innovation. It is with these tenants in mind that Baron Philippe de Rothschild welcomes the next chapter in the history of Mouton Cadet with the introduction of Cadet d’Oc, a new line of varietally-labeled wines available nationally starting this month in the United States. The line launches with the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, both at a suggested retail price of $9.99.
U.S. Marketing Manager for Mouton Cadet, Seth Hynes, said, “With 80 years of tradition, Mouton Cadet gives wine lovers quality Bordeaux blends without the intimidation factor. With the addition of Cadet d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, wine lovers can discover more about French wines without feeling overwhelmed by Old World conventions. With easy-to-read varietal labels and from a brand you can trust, Cadet d’Oc are wines to enjoy and toast those every day celebrations.”
