Lot size: 3 bottles of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1982 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Côtes de Castillon, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Base of Neck (BN)Question Mark Grape variety: Bordeaux Blend

Three bottles of Castillon (Merlot 70%) from the rightly famous 1982 vintage - the one that radically changed the fortunes of the Bordeaux vineyards, shippers, importers and consumers. Not since the meagre (in volume) 1961 vintage had anything like the '82 been seen.

Here we have bottles with good levels for a "petit château" of this age - Base of Neck". The capsules are in excellent order. The labels are slightly nibbled - see photos.

Not a château I know much about apart from the fact it is owned by the Baron Simon de Montfort! Surely not...he died a violent death at the battle of Evesham in the 13th C - at least that's what I was taught at prep school...It's on the label. This, my Cocks & Féret tells me, is a 27 ha estate planted with 70% Merlot, and 15% each Cabernet Franc and Cabernets Sauvignon.

From the original wooden case.
