Bid on a Vertical of Château Mouton Rothschild



Drinkable Art Introducing Lot 289, an impressive 56-bottle vertical of Château Mouton Rothschild, 1945 to 2000. This vertical is a merging of two disciplines of art: outstanding oenology and sophisticated artistic labels. Each vintage of wine and label is unique to itself but as a whole collection reflects the passage of time. Salvador Dalí (1958), Joan Miró (1969), Marc Chagall (1970), Pablo Picasso (1973) and Andy Warhol (1975) are a few of the contemporary artists that have designed Château Mouton Rothschild labels; interestingly, for payment in cases of wine. History in a Bottle In 1945, Château Mouton Rothschild commissioned artist Philippe Jullian to create a unique wine label to celebrate the victory over Germany in World War II. Thus began the tradition of creating a unique wine label for every vintage. The labels are often topical, sometimes whimsical, but always quintessentially Mouton. The wine itself is also the closest one can come to drinking history; drinking this collection of wines would not only allow one to follow the evolution of the chateau's masterful work but to also follow the evolution of art, style and culture. Bidding To bid on this collective work of art, whether for the fantastic investment opportunity, the potential cellar crown jewel, or to drink history yourself, you must be registered for our online auctions.
