Chateau Mouton Rothschild
Chateau Mouton Rothschild is based in the Medoc, France. The property was bought by Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild in 1853.
In 1922, Baron Nathaniel’s great grandson, Baron Philippe, took charge of the property. In 1924 Baron Philippe decided to bottle an entire harvest before it left the property. Prior to this, wine left the property in casks and was matured, labelled and bottled by a merchant.
Since 1924, the wine produced by Chateau Mouton Rothschild has featured an artist designed label which is often seen as the trademark, proof of origin and quality and signature of the vineyard.
Since Baron Philippe’s death in 1988, his only daughter, Baroness Philippine has become wholly involved in Mouton and the firm.
