Based on: CHÂTEAU LAFITE, 1787 — $156,450 Per Bottle
1787 is ancient, especially considering this Bordeaux was sold in 1985. Even the best Bordeaux only lasts about 50 years. So 200 years? Why the hefty price tag? Well, this particular bottle had the initial Th.J. etched into it. That’s right, Jefferson was a hard-core oenophile. As ambassador to France, he often traipsed to Bordeaux and Burgundy looking for wine to bring home.
Rich and robust Bordeaux with ample bouquet of ripe berries up front and rich flavours of black fruit and leather complemented with firm tannins. This full-bodied wine is excellent with grilled steaks and hearty beef stews.
