Description

A bottle of very mature claret from iconic Bordeaux estate Chateau Margaux from the 1964 vintage in a bottling from equally iconic wine retailer Nicolas.
Chateau Margaux is eponymous with fine wine and one of only 4 estates originally calssified as a 1st growth in the official 1855 classification of Bordeaux wines.

1964, together with 1962, is considered the best vintage in Bordeaux of the overall mediocre 60s, of course after the legendary 1961.

The bottle comes with the full 'Nicolas setup', that being the iconic red Nicolas stamp, Nicolas neck label/sticker, (remains of) the orignal tissue paper the bottle was wrapped in (which is stuck to the label and parts of the bottle due to storage humidity over time, removal might damage the label) - and a back label with the kind reminder (in French) to decant this wine!
The Nicolas stamp has become popular to be used on forged wine labels and it should be noted that it was applied onto the label after initial printing - accordingly it overlaps the font on the label - this shows nicely on the close ups of the label (see images).
On modern forged labels, the red Nicolas stamp can be seen printed with the rest of the label, without overlapping.

The bottle is acceptable condition given its age, however some considerable cracking on the capsule is to be noted (which still nicely shows the design of Margaux capsules used in the 50s and 60s), as well as a cut to verify the cork (which still beautifully shows the Margaux hallmarks).
The fill level is quite good at mid to high shoulder, the label is perfectly readable with typical bin storage soiling and some blurring caused by the tissue paper.
