The term “second wine” is used in Bordeaux to refer to an affordably-priced wine from a very famous château. The quality of the estate’s second wine—while good—is not as exceptional as that of the château’s best wine, known as its “grand vin.” Which of the following is NOT a second wine from a renowned Bordeaux château?

A. Le Petit Mouton from Château Mouton Rothschild

B. Le Petit Cheval Blanc from Château Cheval Blanc

C. Les Forts de Latour from Château Latour

D. Pavillon Rouge from Château Margaux


Le Petit Cheval Blanc is the brand new white wine made by Château Cheval Blanc, the first white the chateau has ever made. The wine, which is from the 2014 vintage and is 100% sauvignon blanc, will be released at the end of this month.
