Description

An ultra-rare bottle of Ch. Lafite Rothschild from the legendary 1945 vintage.

This brings together some amazing aspects:
Chateau Lafite Rothschild, one of the most legendary and sounding names in the world of fine wine and 1er Grand Cru Classee of Bordeaux and the 1945 vintage - one of the most important and legendary vintages of the 20th century!

The bottle is in satisfactory condition for its age (see images), with storage related soiling of the label and various tears, quite a bit of corrosion and cracks of the capsule, but with a very good fill-level for the age at ca. mid-shoulder.

As various other vintages of Chateau Lafite (e.g. 1985), the 1945 shows the vintage directly on bottle, raised in glass.
The bottle itself show the typical hallmarks of a post-WWII wine bottling of the 1940s with a slightly conical, rather than entirely straight shape, slightly thicker and heavier glass and the typical bottom-finishing of a Bordeaux wine bottle produced in that period.

Truly a piece of wine history!
