The Days of Wine And Roses: Baroness Philippine de Rothschild Passes Away at 80

Sotheby's Hosts Chateau Mouton Rothschild Auction

Baroness Phillippine de Rothschild played many roles in her life, including a 30 year acting career under the name Philippine Pascal. When her father died, she became president of the supervisory board and controlling shareholder of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild house that produces Mouton Cadet claret, the standard by which the finest Bordeaux wines are measured. Along with her children, she owned the wine houses Chateau d’Armilhac and Chateau Clerc Milon.

Baroness de Rothschild increased the company’s reach globally, with partnerships in Chile and California. She also selected artists to design the labels of the fine wines,  a practice that commanded even higher prices for the wines, which were already sold at a premium reflecting the unparalleled quality of the brand name.

When Baroness de Rothschild was only 1o, her mother Elisabeth Peltier de Chambure was arrested by the Gestapo and perished in Ravensbruck concentration camp during the Holocaust. Phillippine de Rothschild married the actor Jacques Sereys, with whom she had two children, and later the intellectual, Jean-Pierre Bermarchais, with whom she had a son.

Baroness de Rothschild was awarded the Legion of Honor in 2007.
