THE STORY TO KNOW

Previously known as Chateau Mouton, Croix Mouton has a storied history in Bordeaux. The estate has a history dating back to the ancient Romans who planted vines on the property!

Chateau Croix Mouton was purchased by Jean-Philippe Janoueix in 1997. When purchased, the estate and vineyards were not in good shape, the previous owner had abandoned the vineyards. Jean Philippe Janoueix wanted to sell the wines under the original name of Chateau Mouton but a lawsuit was filed by Chateau Mouton Rothschild and the name was changed to Croix Mouton. In 1998 improvements on all the facilities and vineyards began taking place.
