Lot #289. Lafite Rothschild 1953

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"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." Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition, Dec 1997
Provenance: The Coquelicot Cellar
Notes: Upper mid shoulder, scuffed, lightly bin soiled, nicked capsules, very lightly scuffed, very lightly bin soiled labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,400
