Château Mouton Rothschild 1974 in Magnum
Pauillac - Premier Grand Cru Classé
- Cellaring : Collectable or drink now.
- Tasting : A wine with a smoky character, with aromas of berries, coffee and tobacco. Polished and velvety tannins, fruit notes and a cedar aftertaste.
- Art and Label: American painter Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) initially trained in philosophy before turning to painting. In the 1940s, after a brief surrealist period, he turned to abstract expressionism and exhibited with Rothko and Pollock. His pictorial activity was inseparable from an intellectual research that led this "painter-philosopher" to publish, in 1948, a monograph on Max Ernst and to direct, until 1952, the "Documents of Modern Art", a collection of paintings, drawings and Dadaist documents. His art, which was then reaching full maturity, was characterised by the obsessive return of black, massive and disturbing forms, swinging between abstraction and calligraphy. A perfect illustration of Mortherwell's painting, his work for the 1974 Mouton Rothschild label allows us to appreciate the full creative power of one of the most important figures of the New York School.
