Quick 5 day auction so as to guarantee delivery for Christmas.

Offering this pair in two separate lots (1 bottle each) as condition-wise there's nout between them. Both bottles have quite remarkable levels just below the foil and lovely firm capsules. Labels are intact but slightly damp affected. There are a couple of nicks to the foil on both, but overall these are superb!

Jancis waxed lyrical about this vintage: "...Dark ruby with some age. Aristocratic fragrance. Lovely build with real freshness and fruit concentration. Far too good for the prices charged then for Carruades! Really subtle and Lafite-like. Racy. This is a really lovely wine for current drinking. Anyone who bought it en primeur should feel so proud of themselves" 17.5/20

No reserve - good luck! Happy Christmas :)
