Predominantly clay-limestone soil, ideal for all white grape varieties. Limestone gives the wine a mineral freshness, while clay soil brings out the fruit and the typical Sauvignon flavours.
Very mild weather in winter and spring was followed by a relatively dry summer. Rain in early September enabled the grapes to reach perfect maturity and the harvest took place in ideal conditions. In addition, the presence in the vineyards and the expertise of Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s winemakers helped to get the best out of the conditions and ensure a fine vintage, with the cool terroirs of the Bordeaux region producing aromatic and very fresh white wines.
Mouton Cadet Blanc is made from rigorously selected grapes grown by our partner wine-growers in the Entre-Deux-Mers, the best area for white grape varieties in the Bordeaux region.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild's winemakers monitor the selected parcels throughout the vegetation cycle, advising the growers on vineyard practices in order to meet the exacting quality standards of Mouton Cadet.
