FREUDIAN SIP: British painter Lucian Freud has been chosen by Château Mouton Rothschild to illustrate the label of its 2006 vintage. Freud conceived an exotic transposition of the pleasure of drinking: The vine is transformed into a palm tree and the wine lover into a zebra. “Well done,” was Mouton owner Philippine de Rothschild’s first comment when she first saw the label. “He is one of the world’s greatest artists. But of course, you know that,” the Baroness said at the opening of the “Mouton Rothschild: Paintings for the Labels” exhibit at the Wolfsonian-Florida International University last week.
