Lot size: 12 bottles of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1994 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Bordeaux Blend

12 bottles in their original wooden case.
An opportunity to secure a box of mature Graves/Léognan.

Some of the labels have been damaged by ambient damp in the cellar they lived in for over 20 years in Dorset. Happily the levels have remained at good high levels as is usually the case in humid conditions. All appear well into the neck.

Bidding starts at £180 - £15 a bottle with NO RESERVE.

Owned since 1990 by the Bordeaux négociant Dourthe-Kressmann.
Surface area: 52 Ha
Soil Profile : In a single block, a hilly land with a combination of 3 hillocks and plateaus. Great diversity of soils depending on the location of each plot: gravelly hillocks with veins of clay and sandy outcrops.

"We bought Château la Garde in June 1990, totally seduced by the exceptional quality of the terroir, which is quite possibly one of the finest gravel outcrops in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Motivated by this ambitious project, worthy of this magnificent terroir, considerable time and finances have been invested and have been rewarded with the increasingly frequent production of delicate, elegant and appealing fine Pessac-Léognan wines." Patrick Jestin
