Question: I know Mouton is known for their artsy wine labels. Which year was the most controversial?
Answer: Yes Chateau Mouton Rothschild has wonderful wine labels by featured artists started in 1924 with Jean Carlu and continued every vintage since the 1945 (VIctoire “V” of Philippe Julian). Many famous ones have included Marc Chagall in 1970 and Pablo Picasso in 1973 (the year of reclassification from a Second Growth to First Growth). The Balthus sketch of a nude young girl on the 1993 vintage was initially approved by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) but due to some later developing public opinion controversy on it in the USA it was changed to just a blank label.
