Exclusive lot by Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA with Christie’s, for benefit of Association Antoine Alléno auctioned for €237,500

The owners of Château Mouton Rothschild have decided to combine the reveal of the label for the most recently bottled vintage of their wine with an exceptional online auction in favour of a charity.

The chosen beneficiary of this year’s auction, organised in partnership with Christie’s, is the Association Antoine Alléno. The lot comprised a unique assortment of different formats of Château Mouton Rothschild 2021, as well as an exclusive experience at the estate and an
exceptional immersion in the world of multi-starred chef Yannick Alléno.

The artist’s name and the original artwork that illustrates the label of Château Mouton Rothschild 2021 were revealed on 1 December; “Universe of Mouton” created by the Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota thus features on the bottles of the lot put up for auction on Christie’s website.The auction closed at 5.00pm French time on Friday 8 December and the lot sold for €237,500.

The proceeds of the sale will benefit the Association Antoine Alléno, and be used to set up and roll out a comprehensive support programme for the families of young victims of violence at the hands of a third party. The programme will provide moral and practical support, including introductions to people in similar situations and to experts who can guide and help the families throughout their journey, not only in administrative, financial and legal procedures but also and above all at a human level.

“One can only be deeply moved by the universal cause and human values that the charity upholds. Yannick Alléno is a good friend whom we hold in the highest regard and we were keen to make a practical contribution to this admirable initiative. We are proud to be taking part in
the roll-out of a comprehensive support programme for young victims and their families.”

“I should like to thank Camille Sereys de Rothschild, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild again for their great generosity and for this gift to the Association Antoine Alléno, which will support our actions in a practical way.
Every day since its inception the Association has received stories from all over France recounting the loneliness that families face at a time when they are at their most fragile and vulnerable following the brutal loss of a child. Our priority is to help them and to support those
who remain.”
