Partnership Palace of Versailles and Mouton Rotchschild

21 Sep 2019

Earlier this year, Château Mouton Rothschild and the Palace of Versailles announced their unprecedented partnership to fund restoration projects at Versailles. Sotheby’s auctions 75 Limited-Edition Versailles Celebration Cases featuring five vintages of Château Mouton Rothschild.

DIVA Bordeaux and Jean-Pierre Rousseau have very special links with both the Palais de Versailles and Château Mouton Rothschild. Therefore, Jean-Pierre Rousseau has gracefully acquired two cases to become one of the donors who contribute to the restoration of this jewel of French architecture, listed as a World Heritage Site for 30 years. Today the Palace is made up of an incredible 2,300 rooms, with the gardens, palace, and park spread over 800 hectares.

The Versailles Celebration Gala Dinner held in September 2019 combined the world of art & fine wine, with a one-time opportunity to be part of a unique partnership while supporting the future of the Palace of Versailles. Mythic vintages of Mouton Rothschild were served during the evening, including an once-in-a-lifetime serving of 1945!
