Chateau Mouton-Rothschild

Chateau Mouton Rothschild

Over the ensuing centuries the estate has had a number of owners, and was, albeit briefly, once part of the awe-inspiring Ségur estate, following its purchase by the Prince of Vines, otherwise known as Nicolas-Alexandre de Ségur, in 1718. The Mouton vineyards incorporate 75 hectares of typical gravelly soil over a base of sand, clay, marl and limestone. The estate has turned out great wines, sometimes producing the wine of the vintage, and its position as a first growth is no doubt merited. Wines from the late 1940s, in the immediate post-war years, are legendary, and those being produced today are reputedly very much in the same vein.
