CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD DINNER

This Wine Tasting Dinner took place in London, in the company of Hervé Gouin, Commercial Director of Baron Philippe de Rothschild Châteaux.

This event gave us the great opportunity and honor to pay tribute to late Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, to her vision and achievements, by highlighting the 3 Pauillac properties so dear to her (Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Clerc Milon and Château d’Armailhac) and also to the Champagne House she helped create with the two other branches of the Rothschild family.

We started this dinner by tasting Champagne Barons de Rothschild as well as Château d'Armailhac 2003.

Then the tasting was around Château Clerc Milon 2003 and 2005, Château Mouton Rothschild 2005, 2003, 1996 & 1990. We finished the tasting with a sweet note: Château Coutet "Cuvée Madame" 1997. Cuvée Madame is a special Cuvée which is a tribute to the late lady owner of this estate whose workers used to offer her their time in harvesting the last grapes of the 2 oldest plots of the estate.
