American neo-pop artist Jeff Koons has designed the 2010 label of Pauillac first growth Château Mouton Rothschild. Among the other artists to have created a label for Mouton Rothschild are Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Georges Braque, Juan Miró, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud.

In his design, Jeff Koons works over a Pompeii fresco of The Birth of Venus with a silver line drawing of a ship sailing under a bright sun:

The much-lauded 2010 vintage in Bordeaux was a dry and relatively cool year, with an ideal amount of sunshine. According to the château, the favourable conditions led to small, rich, naturally concentrated grapes both high in colour and natural acidity, with length, elegance and harmony being the hallmarks of the vintage.
