Mouton Cadet @ Didas

Crafted by Bordeaux legend Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Mouton Cadet wines are by the glass at Didas.

The story of Mouton Cadet is intimately entwined with that of Bordeaux itself.

In 1855 there was to be an exhibition in Paris and Napoleon instructed his nephew to prepare a list of the top wines from Bordeaux, instigating the region's system of classifying its wines from first growth to fifth growth. At that time, Mouton Rothschild was classified as a second growth.

When he inherited the company in 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild launched a determined campaign to correct this 'gross oversight'. In 1930, the Baron created Mouton Cadet as a ‘branded’ Bordeaux. The first of its kind, it was just one of the many innovations he introduced. Mouton Rothschild was finally promoted to first growth status in 1973, one of only three changes ever made to the original classification.

In 1988, following Philippe's passing, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild carried forward her father's agenda, under the banner of Mouton Cadet, to make a great Bordeaux wine that was accessible to a wider global audience.

A tireless ambassador, the indefatigable Philippine promoted the brand on every continent and made Mouton Cadet the biggest-selling branded Bordeaux wine in the world. In her constant quest for innovation, she gave Mouton Cadet a new, more fruit-forward style in 2004. Designed by Baroness Philippine herself, the bottle also got a makeover.
