Chateau Mouton Rothschild vertical leads bids at $74,000

A New York wine auction held on January 25 has been highlighted by the sale of a spectacular vertical selection from Chateau Mouton Rothschild.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945
The very first art label seen at Mouton Rothschild was the 1945 edition from Philippe Jullian

The lot, which spanned every year since 1945 - the celebrated victory vintage - until 2008, sold for an impressive $73,800. It contained 66 bottles in all, with duplicates of the 1993 and 1964 vintages.

In buying the lot, the collector has also created a spectacular art collection, with Mouton Rothschild's labels being designed by a different artist every year since 1945. Included are works from Dali, Picasso and Warhol.
