Officially acquiring First Growth status in 1973, this château is the source of one of the most significant Bordeaux wines available. Collected as much for its labels, which each year feature original designs by influential artists, as for its seductive texture and flavors of wild eucalyptus, wet earth, and blackberry, Mouton serves as a fitting legacy to Baron Philippe de Rothschild, who lobbied the French government to reclassify the estate. ($1,500)
