Rose de Mouton Cadet is the least expensive and "lowest quality" of the Chateau Mouton-Rothchild Bourdeauxs. Chateau M-R is one of five first growth (Primiers Crus) vineyards. The three quality levels are:
Region + Chateau (best)
This is a really dry wine with a non-descript smell. Simple. Pairs well with variety of food, including kale salad with garlic oil and parmesan cheese, grilled shrimp with cilantro, and tomato rice.
I like it. Nostalgically reminds me of the box wine my parents drank in the 90s. Great for summer, better with food than as a sipper.
Sipped or paired: 3/6 (very good)
