mouton cadet

English translation:sheep
Explanation:
Used a dictionary. I presume mouton cadet is 'baby sheep', it's not lamb anyway. A search on Google also revealed it's a kind of wine but I guess that's not relevant here.

a wine or a cigar


Explanation:
A wine:
Mouton Cadet Blanc
Mouton Cadet was created in the sixties by baron Philippe de Rothschild. It is now one of the stars of the family Company, presided over today by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild. This very elegant, dry white wine is made from a carefully chosen selection of wines from traditional wine growing areas of Bordeaux using the finest varieties of white grapes: Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle. Semillon is included for its softness and aroma, Savignon Blanc for body and good acidity, while the Muscadelle adds roundness and elegance. They are blended by the Company's own expert winemakers to produce those unchanging qualities of fruitiness, subtlety and charm that account for the growing appeal of Mouton Cadet Blanc all over the world. Mouton Cadet Blanc is a perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood and can also be enjoyed as an aperitif. This wine is best served chilled, between 6deg. C and 8deg. C (43deg. F - 46deg F).
Mouton Cadet Rouge
Mouton cadet was created more than half a century ago by Baron Philippe de Rothschild. It is now one of the family Company presided over today by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild. Mouton cadet was initially sold in prestige restaurants in Paris and then throughout France where it enjoyed great success with Bordeaux wine lovers. During the 1950's its popularity extended internationally and Mouton Cadet has today become the leading Bordeaux Appellation Controlee wine in the world. Mouton Cadet Rouge benefits from a great winemaking tradition, and includes only carefully selected wines made from traditional grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, from the main Bordeaux winegrowing areas. Cabernet Sauvignon gives character and ageing potential, Cabernet Franc contributes elegance, and Merlot adds softness and fruit. The "assemblage" is carried out by the company's own expert winemakers who ensure that Mouton Cadet Rouge maintains its consistent, universally appreciated quality, combining balance, roundness, and elegance.

Uncle Bob enjoys these cigars but Woody has always loved the Mouton Cadet #6. These cigars are definatly worth the money and should be included in any collection.
