1787 Bordeaux January 2015 Limited Release


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.

Our Version:1787

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.
