Wine label: Artists and Château Mouton-Rothschild

Mouton-Rothschild is one of the most famous châteaux in the world and is the first Grand Cru Classé in history. But it is not only to his wine that he owes his fame. Indeed, the castle has gathered on its labels the most famous artists of their time. Today, we are offering you a look back at these wine labels that have marked the history of Mouton-Rothschild!

George Braque in 1955

The 1955 label is for us one of the most emblematic of the château. George Braque, the main initiator of cubism with Picasso, was the one in charge of it. Made to the exact size of the label, his work celebrates a magnificent vintage with great simplicity. Because when wine is so good, it becomes so simple.

Salvador Dali in 1958

The great master of surrealism Salvador Dali illustrates the 1958 label. This legendary 20th century artist proposes a gentle sheep with a childlike look, echoing the name of the castle.

Juan Miro in 1969

The Catalan Juan Miro is in charge of the 1969 label! In the center, a large blood-red grape berry. In the left corner, a “greeting to the colours”. And above all, blue and yellow colours, symbol of the Rothschild family.

Pablo Picasso in 1973

In 1973, Pablo Picasso died. Baron Philippe de Rothschild then decided to pay tribute to him. He will use a Picasso painting from his personal collection for this year’s label. The work is accompanied by these words: “in homage to Picasso (1881-1973)”.

Andy Warhol in 1975

Andy Warhol, an emblematic figure of Pop-Art, is in charge of the 1975 label. Faithful to his habit of diverting classical photos, he juxtaposes here a portrait of Baron Philippe de Rothschild in different positions.

Prince Charles in 2004

In 2004, we celebrated the centenary of the Entente Cordiale, between Great Britain and France. In this respect, it is an Englishman who has the privilege of drawing the label for that year. And not just anyone. Indeed, to echo the role played by King Edward VII in this agreement, Mouton-Rothschild entrusted a member of the royal family with the illustration: Prince Charles.

Jeff Koons in 2010

The American sculptor Jeff Koons, a star of contemporary art, is in charge of illustrating the 2010 vintage. He proposes a rework of the Birth of Venus. Indeed, it is transformed into Venus at the Vessel.

Here are some of the most emblematic labels of the castle. You can find them all on the Mouton-Rothschild website.

Discover Spanish wines

Spain ranks third among wine producing countries in the world, behind Italy and France. It is a very rich wine-growing country with more than 60 denominations of origin and more than 1,250 different grape varieties. Vines have always been part of Spanish culture.

Through this article, we will introduce you to different wine regions and local wines that will surprise you!

Txakoli: the emblematic wine of the Spanish Basque Country

Not easy to pronounce! Phonetically, it is pronounced “tchakoli”. This is a wine that is made since a very long time on Spanish family farms. This light and sparkling white wine has an alcohol content between 10 and 12%. Its production covers the entire northern part of Spain. However, only the Basque Country has chosen to make it a controlled appellation. Made from slightly green grapes, Txakoli is a wine that offers a certain degree of acidity, which makes it very special.

We recommend Txomin Etxaniz Blanco, which is made by Txomin Etxaniz, a Txakoli wine producer since 1989. Let yourself be tempted!

Manchuela Tinto: a red wine from the Castilla-La Mancha wine region

Castilla-La Mancha is one of the most important wine-growing regions in the world. It is located between Andalusia and Madrid. The weather conditions are very optimal for vine growing. Today it is a famous wine-growing region with more than 450,000 hectares of vineyards. The region has more than 300 cellars that produce red, rosé and white wines. If you are looking to taste a Spanish red wine from this famous region, we recommend Manchuela Tinto. Both light and tasty, this red wine with a pretty cherry color will be perfect to accompany your meat and fish. Feel free to enjoy it as an aperitif with tapas!

We suggest you a bottle of Signo Bobal 2012.

La Rioja: the oldest Spanish wine region

Since the 19th century, red wines have been produced in large quantities in the famous Rioja region. This is the oldest and noblest Spanish vineyard who was the first to obtain the D.O.C. designation. This distinction is the most prestigious in the Spanish classification because it concerns the wines of Spain that offer the best quality. The region is very important and covers an area of 55,000 km². The natural conditions are all there to ensure the production of exceptional wines. In fact, the climate is characterized by moderate temperatures and regular rainfalls. The three wine regions are Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Baja. All have their own characteristics and offer fine and elegant wines.

We advise you to enjoy a glass of Cune Reserva 2014. The Cune cellar is one of the big names in the Rioja region. This sweet and tasty red wine is produced from the Tempranillo, Carignan, Graciano and Grenache grape varieties. Tempranillo is the emblematic grape variety of the country, which is present in many wine-growing regions in Spain.

The prestigious wines of the Ribera del Duero: the estate of Vega Sicilia

In the heart of the province of Castile and León you will find Spanish wines of exceptional quality, which are recognized throughout the world. We can particularly mention the prestigious estate of Vega Sicilia. This estate covers an area of 1000 hectares and 210 hectares are devoted to vine growing. Many grape varieties are cultivated but it is the local Tempranillo grape variety that takes over. The particularity of the wines of this estate is the duration of their maturation. Indeed, they are first kept in new barrels for two or three years. Then, they are transferred to older oak barrels, which will allow them to mature for up to four years. This technique gives the wines a surprising and unique result in the mouth!

We wish you a good tasting of these wines!

What to drink by the pool?

Summer has arrived. It announces long afternoons of sunbathing and relaxation by the pool. We necessarily wanted to recommend some wines on this occasion. Here is our selection!

Rosé: Lazy Creek Vineyards, 2016 Rosé of Pinot Noir

The lazy Creek rosé is of color deep salmon to almost pink in the glass. The nose has hints of strawberry and wild honey. In the palate, you may find fresh acid notes.

Pinot Noir: FEL Wines Pinot Noir 2016, Anderson Valley, California

A perfect wine for your chill time by the pool. Well-balanced and easy to drink, the FEL Wines Pinot Noir is a must-have in summer. The mouth is layered and richly textured, with a long palate that leads to a long finish. Not a cheap one though, but it is worth any pennies.

Sauvignon blanc: Bernardus Monterey Country Sauvignon Blanc

Bernardus is probably one of the best producers in California’s Carmel Valley. If he makes amazing red wines, his Sauvignon Blanc is perfect as well. All the grapes are hand-pickled during many successive pickings at various ripeness levels in order to have a broad palette of flavors and acidity levels from which to create the final blend. Definitely worth trying by the pool!

Pinot Grigio: Canyon Road Pinot Grigio, California

Canyon Road wines are known for their affordability. Indeed, most of their bottles retail for less than $10. This one fits really good by the pool. It has hints of green apple and floral blossom. It leaves a refreshing and revitalizing finish on your palate.

Chardonnay: Driftwood Estate, Artifacts, Margaret River, 2015

Smooth and well balanced, this Chardonnay from Drigtwood Estate fits perfectly with the end of the day. The aromas of black berry fruit are enveloped by soft tannins, that carries the wine to a sweet finish.

The Sonoma Valley Wine Region

Also known as The Valley of The Moon, the Sonoma Valley is the birthplace of California’s commercial wine industry since 1850s. There are diverse wine growing regions in this valley. Each region has its own characteristics and allows for the production of excellent wines. Here, you can find more than 10,200 acres of vineyards and more than 425 wineries.

We offer you a tour of this beautiful region and a presentation of some of the most important wineries.

Grape varieties

Most of the vineyards in Sonoma Valley were planted more than a century ago. Of course, the Zinfandel grape variety dominates the cultivation of the vine. It is also called “heritage grape” throughout America. In the 1970s, Merlot and Chardonnay were the grape varieties that were mainly cultivated. Then, Cabernet Sauvignon established itself and became a reference in the production of American wines. However, other grape varieties are also very promising and cultivated such as Syrah, Grenache or Malbec. The valley is located between two mountains offering exquisite and peaceful beauty.

The Buena Vista Winery

In 1857, Agoston Haraszthy, a Hungarian-American, opened the first winery in California. He is known as one of the “fathers of Californian culture”. The cellar is still in operation today and you can visit it. This is the birthplace of Californian wines. It now belongs to a Frenchman, Jean-Charles Boisset, who visited the Buena Vista Cellar at the age of 11.

Kunde Family Winery

This historic family cellar has been in existence for more than a century. Five generations of the Kund family have operated the estate, which has 1,850 acres. The family produces all types of wines thanks to the richness of the different grape varieties grown. Some wines are distributed nationally, but many are exclusive to their own tasting rooms. You can visit this winery and taste the estate’s products!

Gundlach Bundschu Winery

This winery was created in 1858. It is located on a 300-acre farm. They produce different types of high-quality wines, thanks to the family know-how that has been passed down through six generations. Nowadays, the winery focusses on making small lots of ultra-premium wines. Discover Gundlach Bundschu Winery by tasting their wines at their wine tastings and by visiting the property!

Africa: the forgotten wine producing countries

Often forgotten on the list of wine producing countries, several African countries have immersed themselves in the world of wine those recent years. Indeed, wine is becoming an important issue for them, driven by a double demand: that of tourists and that of an emerging middle class. Here is a focus on those countries producing wine in Africa.

Namibia

3 bottles of namibian red wines

As a neighbour of South Africa, it turns out that Namibia also produces its own wine! And that’s not new. Indeed, it is considered that the first vines were planted at the end of the 19th century by the Catholic missionaries of Collège Saint-Paul. If you choose to do the “Nambia’s Wine Route Between 2 Deserts”, you will be able to discover the 3 cellars of the country. The 3 cellars are separated by a journey of… 1200km!

A very beautiful trip in perspective, that begins in the Naukluft mountains where you can find the Neuras Winery. A committed winery since it aims at financing the Nankuse Foundation, which works to conserve local wildlife. On the wine side, some of the grapes, too watery, are used to produce Brandy. The other part of the grapes, essentially composed of Syrah and Cabernet Franc, were able to produce a first vintage in 2015!

The second area to visit is Kristall Kellerei and it produces two wines. Ruppert’s Parrot Colombard, Namibia’s only white wine, as well as Paradise Flycatcher, a red wine that blends Tinta Baroca, Syrah, Cabernet Ruby, Malbec and Pinotage.

Finally, the last stage of Namibia’s Wine Rout leads to Eronga Mountain Winery. The first vintage dates of 2014. The estate now produces 3 wines. Etosha is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Krantzberg is of Bordeaux style, and offers very supple tannins. Finally, Namibian Kiss is a powerful and generous wine with cherry aromas.

Gabon

Gabon’s wine production is located in the plateau of Batéké, south-east of Gabon! A particularly complex place to grow vines. Indeed, the temperature never drops below 24 degrees, the humidity level is 90%, and the soil is made of 98% sand. Faced with these constraints, it is a feat to see that in 2018, more than a thousand bottles were successfully produced. It is a rosé, under the name of Malymas, that  can be found in only two shops of Libreville.

Ethiopia

harvest in Ethiopia

11 million bottles per year, that’s Ethiopia’s wine production! Not bad, is it? Especially since this production is divided between only two areas! Awash Winery is the oldest operating estate in the country. Today, the estate produces nearly 10 million bottles per year. And it is interesting to note that they are all considered on the Ethiopian market, and that there are no exports planned for now. Indeed, with a sharp increase in demand, the estate does not even produce enough to satisfy local consumption! One of the major strengths of the domain permitting such a large volume offer is its location. Indeed, close to the equator, it can make up to two harvests per year! Another particularity of the domain is its environmental commitment. Indeed, it permanently recycle the bottles!

The second domain of the country is quite recent. Indeed, Castel Winery was born in 2007, and its first vintage dates of 2014! Here, only one harvest per year is carried out. The weather conditions are interesting: good rainfalls, average temperature of 25 degrees, and sandy soils.

Kenya

As in Ethiopia, Kenya’s wine production is concentrated around two vineyards.

The Rift Valley Winery’s vineyard culminates between 1900 and 2100 meters. This altitude allows to enjoy cool nights. As for temperatures, they never exceed 32 degrees during the day, and the volcanic soil allows good drainage of precipitation. The first harvest took place in 2002. Today, the estate produces 60,000 bottles and aims to produce millions over the next 10 years.

The second domain in Kenya is called the Yatta Winery. A small vineyard of 13 hectares of vines planted in 1992 on a sandy-silt soil. The estate produces two wines, one red and one white. Particularity of the domain, for financial reasons the wines are sold in… Tetra Pack!

Senegal

Vineyards in Senegal

Who would have thought Senegal produces wine! Indeed, the country has the only vineyard of West Africa: Le domaine du Clos des Baobabs. The estate bears its name well, since it is composed of 3 small hectares on the edge of a baobab forest. The climate is particularly dry which forces the estate to irrigate its vines. The most important harvest took place in 2016 and gave birth to… 300 bottles! A real feat in this country.

Africa therefore seems to have a lot to show and offer about wine. We can’t wait to taste what’s coming!

Let yourself be tempted by these wines!

Wines with a high volume of alcohol

Light wines

Today, wines tend to be more alcoholic than they were twenty years ago. Why? Unfortunately, this is a consequence of global warming. The sunshine in the vineyards is stronger. Indeed, the sweeter the grapes are, the higher the alcohol content will be

Our recommendation is a Brouilly Cuvée des Poètes 2016 from the Bernard Jomain estate. It has an alcohol content of 12.5% and is very pleasant on the palate.

Finally, you can also choose Italian red wines. Why not try a Barbera d’Asti or a Valpolicella? With an alcohol level between 11 and 12 degrees, these wines are perfect to start a summer evening! We recommend Signore Giuseppe Valpolicella, with 12% alcohol.

Light rosé wines

The return of the sun inevitably reminds us of the pleasant image of a glass of rosé wine on a sunny terrace. Rosé wine is served fresh, and we advise you to plan your next dinners by putting the bottles in the fridge now!

We appreciate drinking a grey rosé from Domaine Casanova. This Corsican wine has an alcohol content of 11.5%. What could be better than a wine that offers lightness and freshness on the palate?

Are you looking for an original and light wine? We know what you need! Try a sparkling rosé. Jean-Paul Brun’s FRV100 rosé is produced in Beaujolais from Gamay vines. This sparkling wine will surprise your guests. In addition, its alcohol volume is only 7.5%!

All you need to know about rosé wine

If you are looking for a wine to serve as an aperitif with friends, fruity rosé wine can be a perfect choice. The great news is, its price is within everyone’s reach. This pink wine, in fact, is considered as the king’s wine intended to accompany fresh meals.

The story of rosé

It is the oldest of the wines. Provence is the first region where rosé wine production was born. The first vines were planted in the Provence region by the Greeks who founded Marseille. The wine was light in color at the time.

After crushing the grapes, the juice was put into fermentation. The maceration method was carried out in accordance with tradition. Indeed, the grapes had to be separated from the juice during fermentation.

As soon as the Roman Empire flourished, the progress of viticulture crossed all the Gaulle. Later, the church sees itself in full use of clear wine. Its production and marketing are continuously increasing. Clear wine is defined as a healthy and fresh wine at that time.

Why is rosé pink?

The more the must is macerated in contact with the skin, the more intense the color of the wine will be. Therefore, by separating the must from the wine, the coloring is less pronounced. In other words, it is the pigments contained in the skin of the black grapes that make rosé pink.

The 3 types of maceration 

The rosé of maceration: Made with black grapes. Maceration must be short, and last between 12 and 32 hours in order to vary the color of the rosé. Then, the aim is to separate the berries from the skin, the pulp, the seeds and the grape juice. During the vatting process, the pigments contained in the grapes impregnate the juice in order to provide a pink color.

The rosé of pressing: Vinification in white or red grapes. It is strongly recommended to press the grapes with the skin, since salmon rosé is the desired color. It is a lighter rosé than the maceration rosé. This vinification consists of pressing the grapes directly after the harvest. After this, the juice is put into vats and fermented afterwards.

The bleeding rosé: Made like the maceration rosé, the bleeding rosé wine is made from red grapes. The maceration of the red grapes during its production does not take long in the vat. After half a day, the juice in the vat turns pink and the vat is then bled. Bleeding the vat means that the must is transferred to a different barrel where the wine will be fermented. The rest of the must will therefore be used to make red wine.

Some varieties used for rosé wine

Several grape varieties are used today to make rosé wines. Cinsault, Syrah, Grenada, Pinot Noir, Gamay, are, among others, the essential grape varieties for the production of rosé wines.
