Château Mouton Rothschild has announced that the 2014 vintage will be illustrated by English painter David Hockney.
Since 1945 the winery's labels have been illustrated by successful artists, adding a new name to this boozy art collection every year.
Hockney, famed for his Pop Art-style work and up-to-date techniques, was a close friend of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild. His label illustration pays tribute to the late baroness, who died in 2014. The winery describes the label as 'haloed by vibrant lines of force, signifying both emotion and wonder.'
The two glasses, one full and one empty, supposedly tell the story of feverish expectation and the renewed birth of great wine, something the winery has Philippine de Rothschild to thank for.
