Vinography Images: Beautiful Symmetry

Beautiful Symmetry
PAUILLAC, FRANCE: A view of the immaculately designed winery at Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, a town in the Medoc region of Bordeaux. Mouton, as it is affectionately known, was not originally part of the First Growth designation in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. Thanks to the advocacy efforts of its owner Baron Philippe de Rothschild, the estate managed something of a coup, and was elevated to First Growth in 1973, the only estate to have been so included in the modern era. Mouton is best known for its labels that have changed each vintage since 1945, and always feature the work of one of the world's most famous artists.

Vinography Images: Full Clusters

Full clusters
POMEROL, FRANCE: Fully ripe Merlot clusters hang ready for harvest at Chateau Pétrus in Pomerol, on Bordeaux's Right Bank. Pétrus became famous in the late 1800s after winning a gold medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition, beating out many more famous estates. One of the most expensive and sought-after wines in the world, Pétrus is widely regarded as the single best bottling of Merlot to be found, and remains the shining star of the Pomerol apellation, which has never been classified. Consequently it cannot truly be called a First Growth, though it clearly ranks among them in both price and quality.
