Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1978 Pauillac 1er-Cru​

Chateau Mouton-Rothschild is one of the great Bordeaux wine estates.  In spite of its prominence, the estate was listed as only a 2nd-Growth in the famed 1855 Classification of Medoc - an injustice that was finally confirmed with their promotion to the exclusive rank of 1st-Growth in 1973.

The vineyards of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild are planted to 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot - a ratio to which their wine roughly follows with slight annual variation.

Interestingly, 1978 was the first occasion of Ch. Mouton-Rothschild featuring 2 different works of art on their front label.  The artist, Jean-Paul Riopelle submitted a pair of similar designs of the same representation to Baron Philippe de Rothschild for consideration; the Baron liked both and so created 2 labels for the same wine.
