CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1995 (1 3 LTR.) WS 97 WA 95
Lot 243 Details

Margaux. 1er Cru Classé
u. vts. soiled & scuffed label. wrinkled capsule

The wine is medium to full-bodied, with extraordinary richness, fabulous equilibrium, and hefty tannin in the finish. In spite of its large size and youthfulness, this wine is user-friendly and accessible. This is a thrilling Margaux that will always be softer and more evolved than its broader-shouldered sibling, the 1996. How fascinating it will be to follow the evolution of both of these vintages over the next half century. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2040. February 1998 WS 97 WA 95

1 3 ltr.    per lot $2,800 - $3,000

Realised: $5,100
