Vinexpo: New cellars at Mouton Rothschild

Mouton Nikon - 15One thing about Bordeaux. They know how to put on a show.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild hosted the dinner laid on by the Grands Crus Classés of 1855, held on the opening Sunday of Vinexpo, and luckily it was a fabulously sunny day. The occasion was made even smarter by the unveiling of their brand new cuverie, chai and cellars. Oh, how the other half live.

One imagines it will be quite difficult to book a tour of the cellars in the near future but you should go out of your way to do so if you’re coming to Bordeaux. Mouton is famous for featuring works from different artists each year on its label and the gallery of the labels is fascinating. For some reason, they didn’t like guests taking pictures there, so you’ll have to see it for yourself. Still, I managed to take some snaps.
