Château Mouton Rothschild

Château Brane-Mouton became Château Mouton Rothschild in 1853 when Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired the estate, but the wines did not immediately become famous as we know them today. It was with the arrival of Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1922 at the head of the estate that the wines became known. They were pioneers in the bottling of wine on the estate, since in 1924 it was not common to do so for Bordeaux wines. This involved creating a 100 meter long cellar to store the bottles. It was inaugurated in 1926. 

In 1988, Philippine, the daughter of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, took over the management of the estate following his death. She was responsible for the creation of the white wine Aile d'Argent and a second red wine Le Petit Mouton de Mouton de Rothschild. She died in August 2014 and her son Philippe Sereys de Rothschild succeeded his mother, assisted by his sister Camille and his brother Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild. He is still at the head of this prestigious estate in Pauillac.

After a more complicated period in the mid-1990s, the wine of Château Mouton Rothschild has regained all its brilliance and its smoky notes. This is due in particular to the arrival of Philippe Dhalluin as technical director.
