PREMIER GRAND CRU CLASSÉ
Owners: Baronne Philippine de Rothschild C.F.A.
Château Mouton Rothschild is a Bordeaux First Growth with 84 hectares of vines in Pauillac, in the Médoc appellation. It is planted with the finest premium grape varieties in the region: Cabernet Sauvignon (79%), Merlot (17%), Cabernet Franc (3%), and Petit Verdot (1%).
The estate benefits from an outstanding natural terroir, with well-drained soil and excellent sun exposure. The wine is the result of meticulous work in the vineyard and cellar, combining respect for traditional winegrowing methods with modern techniques, involving highly qualified oenologists, winegrowers responsible for individual plots, handpicking, grapes collected in plastic crates and sorted on vibrating tables, fermenting in oak barrels equipped with transparent staves, and ageing in new oak barrels.
Mouton Rothschild has been managed by two outstanding personalities, Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988) and his daughter Baroness Philippine (1933-2014). The estate is a work of art and beauty, featuring a spectacular large barrel hall, a magnificent new vat room inaugurated in 2013 and the famous Museum of Wine in Art displaying three millennia of works relating to vines and wine.
Today, Mouton Rothschild is owned by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild's three children: Philippe Sereys de Rothschild is Chairman and CEO of the family-owned company Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A., is responsible for vineyard management, while Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild and Camille Sereys de Rothschild are respectively Vice- Chairman and a member of the Board of Directors. United in their dedication to continuing the efforts of their grandfather and mother, all three children are committed to upholding the château's motto: "Mouton does not change". But that is not to say it doesn't evolve!
