About the Producer: Baron Philippe de Rothschild - Mouton Cadet
Baron Philippe de Rothschild Mouton Cadet is the best-selling Bordeaux brand in the world.

The name "Cadet" refers to the youngest son of the family, in this case in the name of Filipe and the wine itself.

In the short term, Baron Philippe needed to sell wines that, in his opinion, did not meet the castle's high standards and, in the long term, he wanted to find a wider audience for Bordeaux wines. The first Mouton Cadet wines from the estate's vineyards were a success. and the following year, fruit from the neighboring Pauillac estate was needed to meet demand. Then the sources of the vineyards expanded and, in 1947, the wine became Bordeaux AOC. The company is currently partnering with winemakers across the region, including Pauillac, Saint-Emilion, Grave, Haute-Medoc and Entre-de-Mer.
