Château Lafite 1959 - Double Magnum (3L)
A few days ago was that time of the month again, my visit to the private cellar full of old and rare and fine ladies. Coming in all shapes and sizes, like this sleeping beauty, a double magnum of Lafite 1959 with pristine label and capsule, and high level (reconditioned at the Château, in the late 90s or early 2000s, don't remember exactly).
A rare (and difficult to find) large format bottle commanding an estimated lowest price at around HKD 155,000 (USD 20,000 or Euros 16,500), knowing that the only and highest price on Wine-Searcher is around HKD 450,000 (roughly USD 58,000 or Euro 48,000)...
At that price, no wonder why Lafite is one of the most coveted wines in the world by counterfeiters.
A beautiful bottle in any case and surely one of the last remaining specimens of her kind.
