Lot #453. Lafite Rothschild 1980

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: "The epitome of a . . . luncheon wine, indeed fulfilling precisely that purpose on the last six occasions in the mid-1990s, all from a case of magnums in my own cellar and consumed pleasantly at three successive boardroom luncheons (Christie's never thanked me) and three at home. Identical notes too: medium, touch of mahogany, mature . . . fragrant bouquet opened up quite nicely, touch of iodine . . . flavoury, refreshing." Michael Broadbent MW, Michael Broadbent's Vintage Wine: Fifty Years of Tasting Three Centuries of Wines, © 2002
Notes: Very lightly wrinkled capsule, lightly bin soiled and very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $300
