Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
75cl * 13.0 % ABV * Bordeaux, France
A real charmer from the Rothschilds (of Chateau Lafite), who turned round this rather poor property in 1962 to become another success in the family stable. Nicknamed 'Baby Lafite', this is the only 4th Growth in Pauillac. Ample and expansive notes of plums, currants, and sweet spice, this is a full and luscious Claret.

This bottle is part of a wine cellar purchased from a highly respected Master of Wine (MW) with whom I have worked for many years and who is recognised as one of the world’s Italian wine experts. It has been stored in the MW’s own cellar or climate-controlled storage and I have every belief that it is in tip-top condition. However, as with all purchases of this nature there has to be an element of caveat emptor to proceedings – as such, we will not be able to offer refunds or returns on this item.
