The 12 greatest Chateau Mouton Rothschild labels (and 3 duds)

Drinks: Drinks, Wines
Location: France

From Cocteau to Kapoor, Chateau Mouton Rothschild has been commissioning top artists to create the labels for its first wine for over 90 years. Most recently, collaborating with German artist Gerhard Richter. So, we thought it was time to pick out some of our favourites (and a few that we’re not so keen on).

About Author

Chris Losh

After five years working on My Weekly magazine (during which time he learned how to write horoscopes and make things out of mince) in 1995 Chris Losh entered the world of drinks writing and, despite all advice from his doctor – and the wishes of most South African winemakers – has stayed there ever since. He began on Wine and Spirit International, editing it for several years before moving on to edit Wine Magazine. Both publications have since gone the way of the Dodo, but he claims to have nothing to do with their demise, and his alibi appears solid, since he was freelance writing for anyone who would pay him at the time. In 2007, he helped to set up both Imbibe magazine and the Sommelier Wine Awards, and has spent much of the last three years eating, drinking, and listening to French sommeliers talk about minerality. In 2009 he was shortlisted for the Louis Roederer Feature Writer of the Year, but didn’t win. Perhaps he should have stuck to horoscopes. And mince.
