The Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 was based entirely on market prices with one exception: Château Mouton Rothschild. Despite the market prices equalling that of Château Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild was excluded from 1st Growth status. But in 1973, Mouton was elevated to 1st growth after decades of intense lobbying.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild launched the idea of each year’s label being designed by a famous artist. This has become a significant aspect of the Mouton image with labels created by some of the world’s greatest artists.
