Description: Chateau Margaux 1953 Margaux, 1er Cru Classe u. one top and two high shoulder, two labels unaffixed, one capsule nick and all light bin soil "Tasted 6 Times With Consistent Notes The 1953 Margaux has been delicious for most of its life. Bottles from the cold, damp Paris cellars of the French wine merchant, Nicolas, have exhibited an impressively dark ruby/purple color with only slight lightening at the edge. Its huge nose possesses rich scents of violets, sweet cassis fruit, and spices. Round and opulent, with a velvety texture and gobs of sweet, jammy fruit, this is Chateau Margaux at its most seductive." R. Parker, 98 pts. 10/94 3 bottles

Description: Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1982 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe u. two very top shoulder, all rest bottom neck or better, six labels lightly tissue stained and four with light bin soil "The 1982 Lafite possesses a dark, dense ruby/purple color with only a subtle lightening at the rim. Spectacular aromatics offer jammy cherry and black fruits intertwined with lead pencil, mineral, and smoky wood scents. Powerful for a Lafite, this wine unfolds to reveal extraordinary richness, purity, and overall symmetry in addition to stunning flavor depth and persistence. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. Plenty of tannin remains, and the wine displays a vibrancy and youthfulness that belie its 18 years of age. The modern day equivalent of Lafite-Rothschild's immortal 1959, the 1982 will enjoy another 30-70 years of life! An amazing achievement! Anticipated maturity: 2007-2070." R. Parker, 100 pts. 06/00 12 bottles
