One 375ml Half- bottle of the Excellent and Very Rare 1962 Vintage of Château Margaux. Château Margaux is the Famous First Growth Estate with the Most Seductive and Fabulously Perfumed Bouquet in all of its Great Vintages, which are Frequent. This Rare 1962 Vintage was an Excellent one- The 1962 Vintage was an Excellent one for all of Bordeaux , but unfortunately it was Overshadowed by the Outstanding 1961 Vintage which preceded it. This 1962 Château Margaux has been rated a High * * * * - 4 Stars by Michael Broadbent, Famous Author and Wine Critic. Here is what he says about the 1962 Bordeaux Vintage : 1962 -A Vintage Overshadowed by the Incomparable 1961. Abundant Crop, une tres Bonne Annee ( A Very Good Year). A Very Hot Summer tempered by welcome showers in September which swelled the Berries; and a Late Harvest, beginning October 9 . Firm, Well-Coloured Wines, with some of the Leanness of the 1966s. Never Fully appreciated. Pleasant Pauillacs: Excellent Flavour and Balance; Fine Classic Wines. * * * * - Michael Broadbent. Château Margaux, a 1er Cru Classé property, has been owned by the Mentzelopoulos family since 1978 - since then it has consistently produced the Finest Wines in the Médoc. The large 90 hectare property produces over 30,000 cases per year and is located in the centre of the Margaux Appellation. The vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 20%, Cabernet Franc 2%, Petit Verdot 3%) lie on a sandy-stone topsoil, beneath which is to be found gravel and then clay. The Wine is Fermented in a mixture of stainless steel vats and oak casks and is matured for 18 months in 100% new Oak Barriques. These are Sublime and Immaculately Crafted Clarets which display Extraordinary Fragrance, Refinement and a Ravishingly Seductive Perfume. In the past, the Wine was described as Feminine in character but in the last twenty years Château Margaux has Displayed more Weight and Concentration and today Represents the Perfect Balance between Finesse and Power. This Rare bottle is in Mint Condition and is in Commercial Storage. Thanks for looking.
