Holding the "Royal Warrant" as chief champagne supplier to Elizabeth II, Moet and Chandon is the now obsolescent name of what is a French winery and hailed champagne producer. In 1971, Moet and Chandon merged with the cognac manufacturer Hennessey and became Moet-Hennesseey. In 1987, yet another merger occurred when the company established by Claude Moet in 1743 underwent a symbiotic merge with the fashion house Louis Vuitton thus producing a business conglomerate of a world-leading champagne producer in Moet-Hennessey and a luxury goods company in Louis Vuitton. Twenty-six million champagne bottles, per Wikipedia, is said to be produced from the 2,500 acres of vineyards.

Even though Mouton Cadet is a well known wine and people enjoy drinking it all over the world, it is not one that gains in value like one of the other Rothchild wine named Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Mouton Cadet is a good wine for everyday drinking while Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a collectible. If you were to buy a bottle of 2007 Mouton Cadet it retails for under $10. Here are some wines from the same winery that may gain a value based on factors such as: Proper storing conditions, lack of oxidation and a suitable ullage (ullage is the level of liquid inside of the bottle, the higher the level the better)level. If you come across a bottle of 1959 Mouton Rothschild (not Mouton Cadet) the price based on the factors above could go for about $2000-$40000 per bottle.

Mouton Cadet wine from any year will not have much of a value since it is a cheaply produced wine meant to drink immediately, if at all. Had you asked the question about Mouton Rothschild, and particularly about the 'miracle year' 1982, it would have been more interesting. Mouton Cadet wine was an invention to appeal to the masses, with a low price and an interesting name.
Upwards near $50,000.
Château Mouton Rothschild.
Baron Walter Rothschild was a famous British zoologist. He was also a banker and was involved in politics as a member of Parliament.
No. But there is a famous hotel called Le Chateau Frontenac
That is common table wine from France, it would have gone bad decades ago. It is worth nothing.
1983 Mouton Cadet is worthless and undrinkable at this stage. it should have been consumed by 1988 or 89 tops. Current vintage would retail anywhere between $7 and $12 USD, depending on the region/state and the merchant's markup. While it was orignally fashioned by Baron Rothschild (from Mouton Rothschild, hence the name) decades ago, that is really where the similarities end, as Mouton Rothschild is a First Growth Bordeaux specifically from the Pauillac appellation, commanding prices ranging from the low hundreds to the thousands, depending on vintage. Mouton Cadet is sourced from all over Bordeaux. Because the vintage was a favorable one for most of Bordeaux (but by no means topping '82 or '86, except for Margaux) it could be fun to display on your mantelpiece as a conversation starter!
One of five wines that have been classified as such by the French government. They are Ch. Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild, Margaux, Haut-Brion, and Latour. They are considered, and rightly so, some of the best wine made. There are a total of 5 growths in Bordeaux and the first growths are the most highly-regarded. In 1973, after decades of persistent and intense lobbying, Ch. Mouton-Rothschild was upgraded from second growth to first growth. Three years later, France's leading wine experts, in a blind tasting, declared Stag's Leap Wine Cellars to be superior.
