Chinese Label Makes Mouton Price Soar

Chinese Label Makes Mouton Price Soar

The Chinese magic has spelled wonder once again. The price of the 2008 vintage of Chateau Mouton Rothschild has almost doubled since the name of the Chinese artist Xu Lei was officially confirmed as the creator of its next label.

According to a report, Liv-ex, the Fine Wine Index, showed that the wine was trading for around £7,898 a case, which is an increase of 85.7% on the October price of £4,254. The rise has send Mouton 2008 into second place after its sister property Lafite in the table of top movers of 2010.

This is not the first time that Mouton Rothschild has opted for a Chinese artist on the label. The 1996 Mouton, also sports a label created by renowned Chinese calligrapher Gu Gan.

Mouton 2009, however, has not fared well. While Lafite has increased more than 25% in value in the six months since it was released in June this year, Mouton has lost 10% of its value, making it the poorest performer of the Bordeaux blue-chips. The reason behind could be the judging by the master wine critic, Robert Parker. The renowned critic rated the vintage relatively poorly while he lavishly praised Lafite.

In order to break into the top 10% of American drinkers, you would need to drink more than two bottles of wine with every dinner.

It turns out drinking a bottle of wine for lunch makes me intensely depressed by 8pm so I'm gonna spend my evening crying over cooking shows

@Lerida_Estate I have a non expert wine palate. But I have just bought and tasted your '10 Shiraz and it seems like a Pinot?!? Nice though.

Great insightful post!On a reltaed point, I have always been amazed that in spite of the sheer volume of words that has been written about the Chinese market, practically none of it has been by an actual Chinese consumer.I wonder if it is possible to get a video crew, go to China and film precisely how wine is consumed. That would be really interesting
yes. She thought we'd lose eelvtuanly. Moments after time ran out and we beat UW, I turned around in my seats to locate my travel agent and remind him that we booked 3 for New Orleans months ago. What a special season to witness, from the same seats that we saw 0 12, a lot more fun when we're 12 0.
