Perfect condition bottle of this legendary Lafite.

I bought 3 bottles of this wine about 10 years ago from the cellar of a fancy hotel. I befriended the sommelier who confirmed that the hotel had bought the bottles en primeur (and who expressed considerable embarrassment that a member of staff had written bin numbers on the labels - see pic 3) so they have only laid in the hotel's cellar and my wine cooler since release.

This wine was awarded 100/100 by Parker in 2003, and 98+ in 2010 with this accompanying explanation: " Since I gave this wine a perfect score, I suppose some could see this as a downgrade. I found everything still there for a perfect rating, but I was just struck by how tight and backward the wine was".

It will be interesting to see whether the extra 8 years in the bottle has done the trick - and here's your opportunity to find out with no reserve. Bonne chance!

Other details

Professionally stored since delivery. Other than the biro bin number written on the label, this bottle is perfect in every respect.
