Wood Wine Crate & Box Profiles: Chateau Mouton Rothschild

Chateau Mouton Rothschild:

Country: France

Region: Bordeaux

Sub-region: Pauillac

Classification: First Growth

Production: 15,000 - 18,000 cases per year

Grape: Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a mix of Merlot and Petit Verdot

Crate design: The Mouton Rothschild label has remained the same for nearly 100 years, but every year the same design is changed slightly by a famous artist. The design is a highly detailed and world reknowned cote of arms.

Rarity: Very rare. Approx. 17,000 cases of Mouton Rothschild are produced per vintage. Almost half of those cases remain in France. The remaining 7 - 8 thousand are shipped to every other country. Many of the cases that reach the US have already been purchased in future or at auction.

Crate designation: Exclusive Class First Growth ($100.00)

Our opinion: One of my personal favorites. I love how the Mouton Rothschild label changes every year. It really adds alot of character to their crates.
