"A great wine is a work of art"

Exclusive wine experiences at Château Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux, France

The ambition of making Mouton a place of art and beauty can be seen everywhere:
in the bold architecture of the vat cellar and Barrel Hall,
in the Museum and Paintings for the Labels exhibition, where so many artists and art forms bear witness to the eternal dialogue between art and wine...

Activities

Château Mouton Rothschild was acquired in 1853 by Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild from the English branch of the famous family and has stayed in the same family ever since.

Its history is that of a magical encounter between a terroir and a man, the legendary Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988), renovator of Mouton and a pioneering figure in the world of wine. On her father’s death, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (1933-2014) continued his work and reaffirmed the link between Mouton and art while ensuring the continued excellence of one of the world’s greatest wines.

Mouton Rothschild now belongs to Baroness Philippine’s three children, Camille Sereys de Rothschild, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the family company, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, which manages the Château, and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild. United in their commitment to their grandfather’s and mother’s work, all three are determined to perpetuate the celebrated First Growth’s motto, “Mouton ne change” (I, Mouton, do not change), even in the midst of transformation!

The Château is a place of art and beauty, famous for the spectacular vista of its Great Barrel Hall, the Museum of Wine in Art and its collection of precious objects associated with the vine and wine from two millennia, and the magnificent new vat house, inaugurated in 2013.

Château Mouton Rothschild comprises 84 hectares (207 acres) of vines situated on a hillock called the “Plateau de Mouton”. It is planted on very deep gravely soil with the classic varieties of the region: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc .

The estate benefits from exceptionally favourable natural conditions, in the quality of the soil, the position of its vines and their exposure to the sun. Combining a respect for tradition with the latest technology, it receives meticulous attention from grape to bottle from highly skilled winemakers and vinegrowers responsible for each parcel of the estate.
