Château Mouton Rothschild
The miracle of a great wine: no other product of the soil, from such a small area, is known to so many people around the world. Château Mouton Rothschild is a striking example of that miracle: barely a dot on the map of France, a couple of hundred acres at Pauillac, near Bordeaux, and a Premier Cru Classé, a classified First Growth, whose reputation is now universal. Of course, such success owes much to the exceptional quality of a terroir. But it is also the result of a long history of continuity within the same family, of an unusual approach that closely links wine and art, and of exacting quality standards that combine human skill, respect for tradition and a sense of innovation. Terroir, history, art, wine – including the men and women who make it. That is the magic square which gives Mouton its incomparable personality.
Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild
Born in 1971, Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild is the younger son of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and the scholar and writer Jean-Pierre de Beaumarchais.
He is co-owner of Château Mouton Rothschild and a member of the Supervisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA.
From 2010 to 2013, he was a member of the committee responsible for overseeing the major renovation work at Château Clerc Milon and Château Mouton Rothschild. He is regularly involved in public relations work for the family company, both in France and abroad.
After studying art history, he joined the Paris branch of Artemis Fine Arts as a research and sales assistant in the department of Old Master drawings.
At the same time, from 2001 to 2003, he co-authored the book Mouton Rothschild, The Museum of Wine in Art, which has won a number of awards.
In 2004, with two leading art experts, he created Salamander Fine Arts, a company dealing in high-quality Old Master drawings whose substantial resources enabled it to acquire masterpieces for museums and leading collectors. In 2009, having acquired eight years’ experience, he decided to work on his own as a consultant and dealer, always on the lookout for the “rare pearl”.
At the same time, he has formed his own collection of 19th and 20th century drawings relating to the theatre, comedy and the fantastic.
