    Description

    Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1953
    Pauillac
    ls, bsl, wisl, ssos, great color
    Bottle (1)


    "On two occasions I rated the 1953 100 and on another occasion, nearly perfect. According to some old-timers, the wine has been fully mature for almost 30 years. It possesses that extraordinary Lafite fragrance of minerals, lead pencil, cedar, and spice. It is velvety-textured, wonderfully round, and sweet, but so well-delineated and balanced. It is best purchased today in magnum and larger formats unless you can be assured the wine came from a cold cellar and has not been traded frequently." (100 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)


    Estimate: $800 - $1,100.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
