Official Supplier to The European Tour since 2012, Mouton Cadet — the world’s leading Bordeaux AOC wine — became a member of the prestigious family of Ryder Cup sponsors in March 2013, confirming its commitment to golf.
Sharing the same values and “etiquette”, Hugues Lechanoine, Managing Director of Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Paul McGinley, Captain of The 2014 Ryder Cup European Team expressed their ambition to create an exclusive Mouton Cadet wine especially dedicated to the event.
A combination of outstanding terroir and the passion of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988), Mouton Cadet, an expressive and seductive wine, has embodied quality, prestige and savoir-faire since its creation in 1930.
THE MOUTON CADET S…LECTION RYDER CUP will be a unique wine displaying the prestigious competition’s logo. This limited edition, made in collaboration with Paul McGinley, will be revealed early spring 2014.
"I am honoured to be working on this limited edition. Mouton Cadet and The Ryder Cup share the same values of tradition, elegance and conviviality." Paul McGinley
Hugues Lechanoine states, "It is a significant partnership. In the same way that The Ryder Cup teams bring together the finest golfers, we select grapes from the finest parcels to create this limited edition. I would especially like to thank Paul McGinley for his personal involvement in making this wine".
FROM THE VINEYARD TO THE GREEN
MOUTON CADET S…LECTION RYDER CUP will be available from June 2014 at selected venues and at Gleneagles during the event, from September 26th to 28th 2014.
