Rothschilds And Wine

“My grandfather was the only Rothschild who detested being referred to as a businessman,” says Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild. He’s the baron’s heir and with his 77-year-old mother, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, owns privately held Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, which he says annually produces between 100,000 and 150,000 bottles of the Bordeaux first-growth Pauillac Chateau Mouton Rothschild.price of wine history of wine culture of wine  %tages Rothschilds And Wine

“My grandfather loved life and would have hated the idea of bankers storing Mouton in a vault as an investment,” Beaumarchais says with a frown. “He raced Bugattis at the Grand Prix, Stutz cars at Le Mans and made ‘Lac aux Dames,’” one of the first French talking movies.

As for the baron’s signature drink, “he wanted Mouton to be the wine of adventure, action and exploration,” Beaumarchais says. “Grandfather was full of strength and life and wanted his wine to be drunk among those who shared his humanism. This is my legacy.”

The chateau’s 41-year-old managing director, Hugues Lechanoine, says the minimum price of sharing in that heritage is http://1000-facts-about-wine.com 300 euros ($432). “A good wine costs 150 euros a bottle,” Lechanoine says “A luxury wine starts at 300.”

At a Christie’s International sale in Hong Kong in April this year, 60 bottles of Mouton Rothschild spanning the six decades

from 1945 to 2005 fetched $123,300, or just more than $2,000 a bottle.

For rare historic Mouton vintages in top condition, Chinese and other international buyers will pay even more in the auction room. A 12-bottle case of Mouton 1945 sold in Hong Kong by Acker, Merrall & Condit on Nov. 5 last year fetched a record $207,400, or more than $17,000 a bottle.

Yet Mouton typically sells for less than its neighboring Pauillac first growths, Chateau Lafite-Rothschild and Chateau Latour. Its 1982 and 2000 vintages, among the greatest of the past 30 years, are only the third-most-expensive of the five first growths for those years, priced respectively at $22,400 and $17,000 a case by merchants cited by Liv-ex.

  1. This bottle was given to us and we were told it was “vey special”. I have looked on the internet and could not find it. I have found Rothschilds Pauillac name but with Mouton in front of it and the label is different. Anyway, Rothschilds can make tasty wine!

  2. The most expensive bottle of wine 1787 Chateau Lafitte sold at auction for £105000. I would be able to drink it. :)

  3. I usually get my wine at Amazon, and I’ve had some good wine there, but I don’t know very much about the different brands, and which ones are good. I like red wine. It doesn’t matter too much what kind it is as long as its good. I like shiraz, merlot, cabernet, etc… I would probably consider expensive wine between $50-150.
