PARIS.- Château Mouton Rothschild announced that Sotheby’s will auction 75 limited-edition Versailles celebration cases featuring five Château Mouton Rothschild vintages. These beautifully crafted collectors’ cases honour and celebrate the palace of Versailles and Château Mouton Rothschild’s rich artistic and cultural history. The proceeds will be donated in full to help fund restoration projects at the palace of Versailles.

Each case, designed to reflect features from both great institutions, presents five Château Mouton Rothschild vintages with labels by outstanding contemporary artists who have also exhibited at the Palace of Versailles:

• Giuseppe Penone (Château Mouton Rothschild 2005; Palace of Versailles, 2013)
• Bernar Venet (Château Mouton Rothschild 2007; Palace of Versailles, 2011)
• Anish Kapoor (Château Mouton Rothschild 2009; Palace of Versailles, 2015)
• Jeff Koons (Château Mouton Rothschild 2010; Palace of Versailles, 2008-9)
• Lee Ufan (Château Mouton Rothschild 2013; Palace of Versailles, 2014)

The cases will be offered across a trio of international auctions at Sotheby’s throughout Spring 2019, beginning in Hong Kong on 1 April, followed by London on 17 April and concluding in New York on 4 May. Successful bidders will also receive an invitation for them and a guest to attend a private visit and tasting at Château Mouton Rothschild as well as for an exclusive event, the Versailles

Celebration Gala Dinner, at the Palace of Versailles on 21 September 2019, during which historic ex-cellar vintages of Château Mouton Rothschild will be served. The evening combines the world of art and the art of living symbolic of the two organisations, and presents connoisseurs with a one-time opportunity to be part of a unique artistic partnership while supporting the future of the Palace of Versailles.
Art has always been central to the history of Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s family, and Château Mouton Rothschild has a long-standing and close link with leading contemporary artists. Every year since 1945, a great artist has illustrated the label of Château Mouton Rothschild, bringing together the most famous names in contemporary art in a collection to which a new work is added each year. The prestigious list includes some of the most celebrated artists of their day. Many of these esteemed artists spent time at Château Mouton Rothschild, and their original works are on display in the estate’s Paintings for the Labels Room.

“An artistic bridge from one château to another, together we conceived this presentation case which celebrates the art and the art of living of one of the world’s finest wines, Château Mouton Rothschild, and the Palace of Versailles, a landmark of the world’s cultural heritage. It has been our wish to support the restoration of the Palace of Versailles by creating a limited-series collector’s case that brings together two internationally renowned symbols of art”, said Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, Chairman and CEO of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA.

“For the past ten years, the greatest contemporary artists have engaged in a dialogue with the illustrious builders of Versailles. Before or after stopping off at Versailles some of them – Giuseppe Penone, Bernar Venet, Anish Kapoor, Jeff Koons, Lee Ufan – entered the unique collection created by Baron Philippe de Rothschild with the 1945 label and enhanced by his daughter, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, around the labels of the most prestigious of their wines. This presentation case, reminiscent of puzzle boxes holding the most precious or fabulous secrets, bears witness to this shared history and to Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA as a patron of Versailles”, said Catherine Pégard, President of the Public Establishment of the Palace, Museum and National Estate of Versailles.
