What does King Charles III and Château Mouton Rothschild have in common with Picasso, Dali, and Warhol…?
An Art Deco label was commissioned from the poster artist Carlu for the 1924 Mouton Rothschild label.
To commemorate the end of the war, 1945 was the second vintage of Mouton to feature a bespoke label.
Every vintage since 1945, Mouton has enlisted an artist to design a new label.
To mark the centenary of the Entente Cordiale (“Cordial Agreement”) – a series of agreements signed on 8th April 1904 between the UK and the France – the then Prince of Wales was asked to contribute a work for the 2004 Mouton label.
Prince Charles’ watercolour shows a French landscape and is signed “To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Entente Cordiale – Charles, 2004”.
In October 2021, Prince Charles revealed that his 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Volante had been converted to run on bioethanol made from surplus English wine and cheese – but not, apparently, red wine from Château Mouton Rothschild… 🍷⛽️
