Fine and Rare Wines From Rothschild Family Estate Come to Sale With Christie’sJan 31, 2023 07:00 PST - Feb 14, 2023 07:00 PST
An iconic French estate of Bordeaux wine, Château Lafite Rothschild is situated in the world-famous Pauillac, France. Since the 19th century, it has been owned by the affluent Rothschild family. Lafite was one of the five wine-producing châteaux to be rated as a First Growth under the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. A 1982 Château Lafite-Rothschild Pauillac is a key highlight of the upcoming auction, presented by Christie’s. The lot includes 12 bottles. The collection, which started over three decades ago, was stored in a custom-built cellar. Another Rothschild wine that leads the catalog is the 2000 Château Mouton-Rothschild. Formerly known as Château Brane-Mouton, the red wine was renamed in 1853 to Château Mouton-Rothschild. In the 1920s, it began bottling the harvest at the estate itself instead of shipping the wine to traders elsewhere for bottling.
The sale also offers a 1978 Domaine Armand Rousseau, Chambertin. Based in Gevrey-Chambertin, the brand is a French wine grower and producer, crafting wines entirely from Pinot Noir grapes. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Christie’s.
