Mouton Cadet

Mouton Cadet’s commitment to the Cité du Vin, agreed previously by the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (1933-2014), who was enamoured of art and culture, expresses a conviction intimately shared by the current owners: that the art of wine also deserves a centre of its own in our cultural heritage and that Bordeaux is undoubtedly its world capital.

Created in 1930, Mouton Cadet is the result of a love story between Bordeaux wines and Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988), youngest of the family and keen to promote the riches of the prestigious Bordeaux terroir to a wider audience.

Made by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild family firm, Mouton Cadet has always relied on the expertise and mastery of Bordeaux’s winegrowers.  In order to guarantee the constant and optimal quality of its wines, Baron Philippe de Rothschild applies an original supply policy based on plot selection and partnerships with winegrowers.  This selection means the best plots are chosen to make Mouton Cadet.  Baron Philippe de Rothschild has thus forged privileged relationships with more than 450 winegrowers, from different terroirs in the region.

All Mouton Cadet’s know-how is aimed at sharing a “tasting emotion” with wine lovers all over the world. Its unique style, both constant and vibrant across the vintages, is the fruit of precise and rigorous blending of the different grape varieties.
