Mouton Cadet is a love story between fine Bordeaux wines and the Rothschild family that goes back over 80 years. In 1924, when he was only 22, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took the helm of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, and brought an innovative frame of mind to the business.
In 1930 Baron Philippe had the idea of creating a younger brother for Mouton Rothschild, using grapes grown on the same terroir. As the younger son (cadet) in his own family, he named the wine Mouton Cadet, and the brand was born. In order to ensure constant quality, Mouton Cadet had to be sourced from neighboring vineyards in Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe where the same strict selection is applied. As its reputation grew, Mouton Cadet continued to seek the best grapes, extending its supply source to other Bordeaux vineyards. Mouton Cadet has become one of Bordeaux’s most emblematic brands.
In the meantime, Baron Philippe kept pushing quality standards at Chateau Mouton Rothschild. In 1973, the Chateau was upgraded 1ier Grand Cru Classé (first growth), the one and only change to the 1855 classification of the best wines in Bordeaux.
