Can anyone give me a price range for a 1994 Baron Philippe De Rothschild Pauillac wine? This bottle was given to us and we were told it was "vey special". I have looked on the internet and could not find it. I have found Rothschilds Pauillac name but with Mouton in front of it and the label is different. Any wine experts out there?
The Baron Philippe De Rothschild Pauillac wine may have sentimental value but it is not a wine of "special" quality. The wine that is of special quality is the Mouton Rothschild. Recent vintages of Baron Philippe De Rothschild Pauillac can be purchased for about $16.99. To put it delicately what has happened like with many companies is that the company produces its highest quality wines and then also markets wines for everyday or monthly drinking like the Baron Philippe De Rothschild Pauiliac. They also produce a red and white Bordeaux for everyday drinking (under $10) called Mouton Cadet. The wine you have may be tasty and you may enjoy drinking it; and it is a wine of good quality but it does not carry a monetary value. Don't worry because many people are confused. Just like when you hear the name of other luxury goods like Tiffany's. Tiffany's carries gems of considerable worth and then they carry their mass produced silver heart bracelets and necklaces that are of very little value. People like these silver items because they want to wear the Tiffany name.
