Every Year since 1945, a great artist has created an original artwork for the Château Mouton Rotschild Label. Thus, the most famous names in contemporary art are brought together in a colection to which a new work is added each year.
The commission to illustrate the 2009 vintage was given to the sculptor, painter and visual artist Anish Kapoor, a british citizen of indian origin, born in Mumbai in 1954 and leading figure of contemporary art. His work reflects and transcends world's diversity through a constant invention of forms that offer the viewer unforgettable experiences.
At once austere and flamboyant, the gouache he has created for Mouton Rotschild2009 expresses the fertile thrust of plant life, the result of an intense encounter between matter and light.

Vintage 2009: the wine has a very deep, almost black colour. the stylish and complex nose displays aromas of bilberry, blackcurrant and blond tabacco that mingle with subtle cedarwood and spice notes. The same refinement and density are to be found on the palate with patrician, well-rounded tannins, revealing remarkable structure and balance right through to the long and opulent finish.
