Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1945

Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1945

Todd Williamson

Another wine that achieved a record price at auction is a rare Chateau Mouton-Rothschild from 1945. Due to the late frost that year, the vintage was the smallest since 1915. This jeroboam of 4.5 liters is the equivalent of six regular wine bottles. It is decorated with a V for victory, designed by the artist Philippe Jullian, hailing the end of World War II. This vintage wine’s 1945 label is notable for its ‘V’, indicating the end of the Second World War and the victory of the Allied powers as it was bottled at this time. Recognized by wine enthusiasts as one of the world’s finest red wines, it was sold in 1997 through a Christie’s London auction to an anonymous buyer.
