The dark ruby-hued 2011 Le Petit Mouton reveals foresty, floral, and berry fruit notes, medium body, and a one-dimensional, but pleasant style. Consume it over the next 10-15 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The Le Petit Mouton 2011 is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot and includes some plots once destined for the Grand Vin. Tasted two weeks apart, the first sample in March 2012 has an opulent bouquet for the vintage with luscious cassis and raspberry aromas, struck through with creamy new oak (perhaps from the 60% new oak.) The second is April is less extrovert but demonstrates better refinement. The palate has a sharp entry. indeed it is quite an angular primeur sample although there is patently a lot of fruit concentration. It has a fine graphite and bay leaf finish with a pointed citric edge. This is a tensile Le Petit Mouton, not exhibiting weight or power but more precision and Pauillac austerity. There is nothing wrong with that. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A supple red, with charming cherry and plum perfume notes. There's good focus to the cassis and blackberry fruit, which is backed by a stylish finish. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Stunning black fruits nose both firm (Cabernet) and seductive (Merlot), good structure over the lush fruit. Drink 2014-2025. Decanter.com

Petit Mouton can often have a rather sweaty, Petit Verdot quality to it but this year it looks much more like a Mouton family member. Bright and floral blackcurrant nose with a soft supple palate awash with bright acids. Naturally a bit of Petit Verdit sweat manages to creep in at the end but not bad.
