1 DOUBLE MAGNUM BOTTLE CHATEAU LAFITE...

1 DOUBLE MAGNUM BOTTLE CHATEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD GRAND CRU CLASSE PAUILLAC 1959 (LEVEL AT VERY TOP SHOULDER - VTS), one owner since purchase “en primeur” in early 1960’s (through either Berry Brothers or The Wine Society) and stored in an ideal cellar. This ‘iconic’ DM has come from the Private Collection of the late philanthropist and Businessman Sir John Zochonis, one time Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester and Chairman and CEO of The Cussons Soaps empire. This Double Magnum, as a typical early 1960’s release when the presentations for large formats were hand-applied, is in excellent condition and has recently been taken to Bordeaux for appraisal. A full report from the Technical Director of Chateau Lafite is available. The label is intact and partially “cellar-soiled” and the lower part of the capsule also shows minor damage. The Ultimate 60th Anniversary item.
