Palmy or horsey?

The labels on Bordeaux first growth Château Mouton Rothschild are often as special as the wines themselves. Over the years, many revered names from the art world have contributed to the wine’s prestige……….OK, may be Prince Charles was an exception.

But there is something striking about the latest one by Lucian Freud which will grace the bottles of 2006 vintage. Although childishly simple at first look, it epitomizes the complexities of the modern day art world. The more I try to make sense of it, more it puzzles me.

As they say, there are numerous ways to look at a modern art. May be this one is to suggest that the wine may be a bit horsey (brett??) or may have palmy aromas! Palmy? Yes, another contribution from Mouton Rothschild to the wine world. Probably a noble approach to sell a not-so-noble vintage!

Cheers,
