Description: One bottle of Château Léoville-Las Cases 1993 vintage Saint-Julien Original filling quantity: 0.75 l Fill level: into neck Robert Parker: 90/100 (1997) Jean-Marc Quarin: 90/100 (2003) This lot comprises one bottle (0.75 l) of the 1993 vintage Château Léoville-Las Cases from the appellation of Saint-Julien. Although it rained now and then in Bordeaux in 1993, this vintage is nowadays considered to be underrated with some surprises of which this wine is one.The 1993 vintage Leoville-Las Cases was recently awarded 90 points by American wine critic Robert Parker in 1997. The French wine critic Jean-Marc Quarin most recently awarded it 90 points in 2003.The fill level is excellent (into neck), especially given the age of the wine. The label and capsule are in perfect condition.Château Léoville-Las Cases Château Léoville-Las Cases is a famous wine estate in the appellation of Saint-Julien in Bordeaux. Before the French Revolution it was, together with Châteaux Léoville-Barton and Léoville-Poyferré, one large estate named Château Léoville, the largest wine estate in Médoc at the time with over 180 hectares. After the revolution, the owner at the time, Marquis de Las Cases Beauvoir, had to part with a section of the wine estate. The Irish wine merchant Hugh Barton bought this section and made it into Château Léoville-Barton, which is still owned by his descendants today. In 1840 the vineyard was divided once again, this time within the Las Cases family, resulting in Château Léoville-Poyferré. Of these estates, the Léoville-Las Cases is the largest and most highly regarded. In the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 it was classified as Deuxième Grand Cru Classé while being in no way inferior to the Premier Crus. Today it is owned by the Delon family and is counselled by the oenologist Jacques Boissenot, who also assists four of the five Premier Crus as well as a number of other well-known wineries in Bordeaux.Léoville-Las Cases has a vineyard area of around 97 hectares with 65 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 19 % Merlot 13 % and 3 % Petit Verdot. The average age of the vines is 30 years. Only 40 % of the anual production, which amounts to an average of about 450,000 bottles, becomes the first wine, the rest becomes the estate's second wine, Clos du Marquis, which itself is often better than a number of other Grand Crus.

Château Cos d'Estournel Château Cos d'Estounel is a famous wine-growing estate in the Saint-Estèphe appellation, immediately next to Château Lafite-Rothschild in the bordering Pauillac appellation. The winery was founded during the 19th century by Louis-Gaspard Estournel, a wine salesman with the aim of producing the best wine in the world. Although his estate was a great success, the costs incurred by quality improvements brought him financial ruin. In 1852, he sold the Château to English banker Charles Martyns, three years before it achieved Deuxième Grand Cru Classé in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 thanks to Estournel's years of hard work. The estate often changed ownership afterwards, until it was bought by Ferdinand Ginestet, a wine trader from Bordeaux, in 1917. The winery was owned by his family until 1998, when it was sold to the Taillan group. The estate has been owned by the Reybier winegrowing group since 2000. Jean-Guillaume Prats, a descendent of Ferdinand Ginestet, is the manager. Cos d'Estournel has 64 hectares of vineyard area, planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60 %), Merlot (38 %) and Cabernet Franc (2 %). Normally, 32,000 cases of wine are produced annually. Wine from Cos d'Estournel often has a higher proportion of Merlot than most other Grand Cru wines on the left bank of the Gironde.

The label is slightly soiled and very slightly damaged. The capsule is in perfect condition.Château Cos d'Estournel Château Cos d'Estounel is a famous wine-growing estate in the Saint-Estèphe appellation, immediately next to Château Lafite-Rothschild in the bordering Pauillac appellation. The winery was founded during the 19th century by Louis-Gaspard Estournel, a wine salesman with the aim of producing the best wine in the world. Although his estate was a great success, the costs incurred by quality improvements brought him financial ruin. In 1852, he sold the Château to English banker Charles Martyns, three years before it achieved Deuxième Grand Cru Classé in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 thanks to Estournel's years of hard work. The estate often changed ownership afterwards, until it was bought by Ferdinand Ginestet, a wine trader from Bordeaux, in 1917. The winery was owned by his family until 1998, when it was sold to the Taillan group. The estate has been owned by the Reybier winegrowing group since 2000. Jean-Guillaume Prats, a descendent of Ferdinand Ginestet, is the manager. Cos d'Estournel has 64 hectares of vineyard area, planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60 %), Merlot (38 %) and Cabernet Franc (2 %). Normally, 32,000 cases of wine are produced annually. Wine from Cos d'Estournel often has a higher proportion of Merlot than most other Grand Cru wines on the left bank of the Gironde.

In the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 it was ranked as Quatrième Grand Cru Classé. The estate then changed hands quite often, as a result of which production and quality suffered dramatically over the following century. The vineyard was eventually bought by Guy Tesseron, whose family had been trading in Cognac since the 16th Century, and restored to its former glory. It still remains in his family's possession and the estate is counselled by oenologist Jacques Boissenot, who also assists four of the five Premier Crus as well as a number of other well-known wineries in Bordeaux.Château Lafon-Rochet has a vineyard area of around 45 hectares and plants Cabernet Sauvignon (55 %), Merlot (40 %) and Cabernets Franc (5 %). The vines for the first wines are at least 35 years old. The wine is stored in oak-barrels, which are between 50 and 60 % new, for 16 to 20 months. Overall, the average anual production amounts to 20,000 cases, 12,000 of which are for the Grand Vin Château Lafon-Rochet and 8,000 for the second wine Les Pélerins de Lafon-Rochet.

Wine Spectator magazine gave it the same score in 2000. Swiss wine critic René Gabriel rated the wine 18 out of 20 points in 2005.

1 bottle 1991 Château Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: One bottle of Château Mouton-Rothschild 1991 vintage Pauillac Label design by Setsuko Migishi (1905-1999) Original filling quantity: 0.75 l Fill level: base of neck Wine Spectator: 89/100 (1994) This lot comprises one bottle (0.75 l) of 1991 vintage Château Mouton-Rothschild from the Pauillac appellation. The label was designed by Japanese artist Setsuko Migishi (1905-1999). 1991 is one of the Bordeaux vintages that are too often underrated. Even though 1991 is not a top vintage, it is full of surprises and wines from the best estates in particular, such as Château Mouton-Rothschild, prove to be exceptionally good today. The only way to find out is to taste it yourself! The 1991 vintage Mouton-Rothschild was awarded 89 points in Wine Spectator in 1994. The fill level is excellent (base of neck), especially given the age of the wine. The label and capsule are in perfect condition. Château Mouton-Rothschild Château Mouton-Rothschild in Pauillac near Bordeaux is one of the most famous wine-growing estates in the world and is still privately owned by the Rothschild banking family. Today's estate is the legacy of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, who acquired it on October 22, 1922, when he was still a young man. By striving for excellence and constantly searching for new methods, he consistently improved the quality of the Château's output. His first innovation was to bottle the wine on the estate in order to determine all stages of production: "Mise en Bouteille au Château". His efforts were finally rewarded in 1973, when Château Mouton-Rothschild was reclassified from Deuxième to Premier Cru (first growth) - the only change to have been made in the history of the official classification. Mouton has 82 hectares of vineyard area, made up of 77 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 % Merlot, 9 % Cabernet Franc and 2 % Petit Verdot. Château Mouton-Rothschild lies on a slope that is thirty metres high in places. On this slope, a layer of more than eight metres of gravel lies on a calciferous base, coming from alluvial deposits from the nearby Gironde, in the Pyrenees, towards the end of the Beestonian stage. The Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety grows splendidly on this soil.

The label was designed by controversial artist Balthus (1908-2001) and is an anomaly in the history of Château Mouton-Rothschild labels: As this vintage label caused controversy in the United States, a second label without the nude portrait was produced for the American market. Although it rained occasionally in Bordeaux during 1993, the vintage is today viewed as being underrated and full of surprises. This wine can undoubtedly be counted amongst those. The 1993 Mouton-Rothschild was last awarded 90 points by Robert Parker in 1997. It received the same score in an edition of Wine Spectator magazine in 1996. Jean-Marc Quarin last scored the wine in 2003, giving it 88 points. René Gabriel rated the wine 18 out of 20 points in 2011. The fill level is outstanding (high fill).

The label is slightly soiled and very slightly damaged. The capsule is soiled but otherwise in perfect condition. Château Lafite Rothschild Château Lafite Rothschild, owned by the Rothschild family since the 19th century, is arguably the most famous wine estate in the world. It is one of only four Châteaus that were classified as Premier Cru Classé for the Paris World Fair in 1855. The winery is located in Pauillac, next to the equally eminent Château Mouton-Rothschild. The vineyards of these two estates lie on a hilltop, up to 30 m high, with soil mostly made up of free-draining gravel. This makes it ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Due to the gravel, the vine plants must dig their roots deep into the soil and thus absorb more nutrients, influencing the wine's bouquet. Furthermore, the gravel leads to a favourable thermal balance, which results in earlier maturation. The winery is advised by the oenologist Jacques Boissenot and his son Eric. Château Lafite Rothschild has an acreage of 103 hectares. The grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (71 %), Merlot (25 %), Cabernet Franc (3 %) and Petit Verdot (1 %) are cultivated there. The average age of the vines is 30 years, and 40 years for the first wine.
