Lot #2. Margaux 1971

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 JG.
". . . I was quite impressed with the quality of this wine. I had never had a chance to taste it before, but preferred it to vintages such as ’66 and ’70 at this First Growth. The bouquet is deep and quite refined, offering up scents of baked red fruit, a touch of orange peel, a fine base of chalky soil tones, cigar ash, hints of summer truffle and a lovely topnote of tobacco leaf. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very suave on the attack, with a plush core, fine focus and grip, melted tannins and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. This is really a lovely example of Margaux (and one of the best from the latter Ginestet era here) . . ." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #70, Aug 2017
Provenance: The Maquereau Cellar
Notes: Top shoulder, lightly corroded capsule, lightly faded, damp stained, lightly scuffed, lightly bin soiled label.
Lot Location: Orange County
