We are honoured to host co-owner, Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild, and head winemaker, Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy, for this tasting during their first visit to Western Canada. This rare opportunity to interact with the family owner and the head winemaker further celebrates the achievements of the Calgary Stampede’s inaugural international wine competition, the Stampede Cellar Showdown, and the Stampede’s commitment to elevated food and beverage experiences.

For this exclusive event, guests will taste five wines from the family’s Bordeaux estates in the Pauillac appellation: Château Mouton Rothschild, Château d’Armailhac and Château Clerc Milon. The wines will be presented by Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy.

The tasting will include also a vintage from the Sauternes Château Coutet, exclusively distributed by Baron Philippe de Rothschild.

Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild

Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild, born in 1971, is the grandson of Baron Philippe (1902-1988) and the younger son of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (1933-2014) from her second marriage with the scholar and writer Jean-Pierre de Beaumarchais.

With his brother and sister Philippe and Camille Sereys de Rothschild, he is co-owner of Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Clerc Milon and Château d’Armailhac. He is a core shareholder of the family company Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA and has been Vice-Chairman of its Board of Directors since 2018.

After studying art history, he worked in the Old Master drawings department of Artemis Fine Arts, a famous British gallery. Having gained valuable experience with them, in 2004 he teamed up with two leading art experts to create Salamander Fine Arts, a dealer in high-quality old prints and drawings. Salamander’s clients soon included international collectors and major museums such as the Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Increasingly taken up by Mouton and the family company, however, he decided in 2009 to devote the bulk of his time to them while continuing to act as an independent broker.

Amongst his various assignments within the family company, one of the most important was co-authoring with Sandrine Herman Mouton Rothschild: The Museum of Wine in Art, a richly illustrated reference work on one of the major attractions at Mouton, created in 1962 by Baron Philippe and his wife Baroness Pauline.

From the early 2000s and even more so now, he represents the family company at prestigious events in France and around the world. He is also involved in PFV (Primum Familiae Vini), an association of major family-owned wine businesses.

In 2007, Baroness Philippine asked him to join her on the committee in charge of major projects to renovate and refurbish Château Clerc Milon and Château Mouton Rothschild, magnificently brought to completion in 2013.

Since Baroness Philippine’s death in 2014, Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild, with his brother and sister, has sought to perpetuate the same quest for excellence in both Château wines and branded wines, including the famous Mouton Cadet. More specifically, he nurtures and enhances the relationship between wine and art that is such a distinctive feature of Mouton, both at the château itself with the Paintings for the Labels exhibition room and on the bottles. Thus, he now has the responsibility, formerly his mother’s prerogative, of choosing and maintaining relations with the artist commissioned each year to illustrate the label for the legendary Château Mouton Rothschild.

Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy

Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy was appointed Head Winemaker on 1 July 2020, after 11 years at the head of Château Clerc Milon. In that position he now has technical responsibility for the three Bordeaux properties, Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac.

Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy joined Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA in 1999 via Opus One, where an end-of-study internship turned into a position as Viticulturist then Assistant Winemaker/ Viticulturist.

After moving to the company’s Châteaux Wines division in Pauillac in 2009 he was appointed head of Château Clerc Milon. There, he formed a skilled and highly motivated team which worked alongside him for over ten years to give a new lease of life to a unique Pauillac classified growth.

Imbued with the company’s mindset of innovation and excellence, he implemented environment-friendly and sustainable vineyard practices at Château Clerc Milon which have now become an integral part of the estate’s DNA. As well as supervising the restructuring of the vineyard, the creation of new buildings and the landscaping of the château, he oversaw the acclaimed improvement in quality of its first wine and helped to create the second wine, Pastourelle de Clerc Milon, intended in particular for the on-trade.

He also provides technical input and support to the company’s two joint ventures, Opus One in California and Almaviva in Chile, visiting them several times a year. An agricultural engineer and oenologist, Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy is a graduate of the Ecole Supérieure d’Agriculture de Purpan.
