Footnotes

  • The majesty that is Château Mouton Rothschild, journey's back to its origin in the 1800's when acquired by Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild, however it was not until 1922 when the estate was handed over to a then young, 20 years old Baron Philippe de Rothschild, great grandson of Baron Nathaniel. Today the name Château Mouton Rothschild, "the ram", is held in the highest esteem as one of the finest estates in the world, with the ambition of making Mouton a place of art and beauty which can be witnessed worldwide.

    Château Mouton Rothschild spans 90 hectares of vines to the north-west of Bordeaux, on the edge of the Médoc peninsula, itself situated, as its name indicates, in medio aquae, amid the waters: those of the Gironde estuary to the east and of the Atlantic Ocean to the west. However, the Chateau Mouton Rothschild vineyard is mostly situated on a hill called the 'Plateau de Mouton'.

    Avid collectors of the finest wines are well versed in the past fabled vintages to arise from Bordeaux, and one that is considered of gargantuan proportion is that of the 2000 vintage, perfect for both banks. This vintage is clearly of legendary status.

    The bottle itself is somewhat unique, with Mouton venturing out from their traditional labels, being illustrations of artwork by leading painters. For the 2000 bottling, the astonishing intricacies of the "Augsburg Ram" are achieved by a particularly complex method of gold engraving onto the bottle, which in turn has produced a quite beautiful spectacle with scintillating texture. The bottles alone are collector's items.

    The 2000 Château Mouton Rothschild Nebuchadnezzar (15 litre) is the epitome of rarity with only a very few ever produced, where a truly legendary and profound wine meets the quite remarkable and unique bottle artistry.

    木桐莊 2000
    羅思柴爾德木桐莊的壯麗發展史,可追溯至1853年納撒尼爾·羅思柴爾德男爵收購了酒莊,但直到1922年,酒莊由納撒尼爾男爵的曾孫、當時只有20歲的年輕人菲利普·羅思柴爾德男爵接管,才得以發揚光大。如今,羅思柴爾德木桐莊是全球頂尖酒莊之一,品牌與小公羊徽章備受世界尊崇,一同見證其對藝術與優美之追求。

    木桐莊橫跨波爾多西北部90公頃的葡萄園,處於梅多克半島邊緣,正如「梅多克」蘊含的意義為「在水中央」,酒莊東望吉倫特河口,西臨大西洋,主要坐落在名為「木桐高原」的小山上。

    熱愛頂級葡萄酒的藏家們,深諳過去波爾多美酒的傳奇年份,其中2000年就被公認為比例龐大的絕佳年份之一,在左岸及右岸都堪稱完美,理所當然盤踞傳奇地位。

    此2000年的酒瓶本身甚為獨特,木桐莊從他們邀請著名畫家繪製藝術插圖酒標的傳統中,大膽創新,細膩的「奧斯伯格小公羊」以特別複雜的鍍金技術刻在瓶上,相當奪目,紋理閃閃發光,酒瓶本身就是值得收藏的藝術品。

    2000年的羅思柴爾德木桐莊尼布甲尼撒瓶裝(15升),只生產了極少數,絕無僅有。真正傳奇雋永的名釀,與相當卓越獨特的製瓶藝術,相得益彰。
