The auction organised by Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA for thefirefighters of the Gironde department raised €175,000

On the occasion of the reveal of the label for Château Mouton Rothschild 2020, illustrated
by the British artist of Scottish origin Peter Doig, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, in
partnership with Sotheby’s, organised an exceptional online auction which closed at 7.00pm
CET on Friday 2 December.

The proceeds, minus expenses, will be donated to the firefighters of the Bordeaux region
(SDIS 33) to provide them with additional fire prevention equipment.

“In 2022, which promises to be a great vintage, parts of our region were ravaged by major
wildfires. That is why, as we reveal the artist and the artwork created to illustrate the label of
Château Mouton Rothschild 2020, we decided, in partnership with Sotheby’s, to organise the
sale by auction of an exceptional lot, the entire proceeds from which will be donated to the
firefighters of the Gironde department. In doing so, we wish to add our voice to the universal
expressions of gratitude and admiration they so richly deserve and support their work in a
practical way, especially in terms of prevention.”

Camille Sereys de Rothschild, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, Julien de Beaumarchais de
Rothschild – owners of Château Mouton Rothschild
