Annette Messager's design for the Mouton 2017 label has been named 'Hallelujah', and observers will notice that the word is repeated many times in waves on her artwork.
Mouton owner Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA has commissioned an artist to design every grand vin label since 1945.
The Pauillac first growth said of Messager's work, 'In an approach that is both realistic and symbolic, [Messager] combines two substances, milk and wine, which the Bible often associates with each other, hymning the virtues of both.'
