Bid on Mouton for Haiti

The Bordeaux first-growth is auctioning two magnums of its legendary 1986 in this blog and donating the proceeds to earthquake relief

Posted: February 22, 2010  By James Suckling

As we all know, the earthquake in Haiti has led to widespread devastation and suffering. The blow to an already impoverished nation is heart-wrenching.

People around the world quickly responded with help. The wine industry has joined in, too, with various donations and events to help the devastated island and its people. I am proud to offer this blog as another way that wine lovers can support Haiti and its people. Right here on WineSpectator.com, Bordeaux first growth Château Mouton-Rothschild is auctioning two magnums of its legendary 1986 red, whose label was designed by Haitian artist Bernard Séjourné. The estate will donate the proceeds to the charity Foundation de France's earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. Bidding, open only to website members, will run in the comments section until March 1.

The bottles come straight from the cellars of Mouton. This is an incredible offering. The 1986 Mouton is a legend. It is a powerful, immortal wine with amazing fruit and structure. My official score is 99 points.
