Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1972 Pauillac

Chateau Mouton-Rothschild is one of the great Bordeaux wine estates.  In spite of its prominence, the estate was listed as only a 2nd-Growth in the famed 1855 Classification of Medoc - an injustice that was finally confirmed with their promotion to the exclusive rank of 1st-Growth in 1973.

The vineyards of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild are planted to 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot - a ratio to which their wine roughly follows with slight annual variation.

1972 vintage. Bottle No. 93,369.

The bottles bears an additional label below the front label with the name Giulio Gabri, as licensed Italian distributors.  This bottle features an interesting peculiarity as the printed label states volume as 73cl - the more common bottle size in Italy at the time - while the glass is stamped 75cl.

This bottle is in good condition: light cosmetic damage to label/seal; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
