Lot #147. Margaux 1961

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93 RP.
"An intense bouquet filled with the scents of ripe plums, flowers, toasted walnuts, and oak is divine. This expansive wine is silky, rich, very generously flavored, long, and full bodied on the palate. It is fully mature, but there is little chance of this wine falling apart . . . . The 1961 is a top-flight wine and unquestionably the last great Margaux until the Mentzelopoulos era began its remarkable string of great Margaux in 1978." Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition, Jan 1998
Notes: High shoulder, slightly recessed, very lightly scuffed capsule, very lightly scuffed, lightly damp stained, very lightly mold stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $850
