Fill level: Question Mark Grape variety:

Michael Broadbent rates the 1920 vintage 5*

He comments that 1920 was the perfect way to start one of the best decades ever in the history of Bordeaux.

He doesn't have a tasting note for Cos d'Estournel 1920 but does for the 1926 vintage - also 5* and I am also selling a half-bottle of this at the moment - for which he says "sound - sweet - perfect flavour & balance - 5*"

Other details

This bottle has a level to vhs with no signs of seepage.

The chateau capsule is original.

I have not cleaned the bottle so that a purchaser can see how exactly the label is an original fit (the cork may or may not be branded)

This is an exceptional survivor; I did find a reference to it being previously available on Wine Searcher for £550 or £650 (660-780 after tax) but it's no longer there. Nevertheless, that would be in line with the 1926 (also 5*) Wine Searcher reference.

My reserve is less of course but still reflects this bottle's rarity and excellent condition.
