Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1972 Pauillac

Chateau Lafite-Rothschild is one of the great Bordeaux wine estates.  Lafite was listed as one of only four 1st Growths in the famed 1855 Classification of Medoc - though sister-estate Ch.Mouton-Rothschild gained promotion from 2nd (2eme Cru) to 1st-Growth in 1973.

The wines of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild feature varying compositions of 80-95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5-20% Merlot, 0-5% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, matured in new oak barrels for between 18 to 20 months.

This bottle features an interesting peculiarity as the printed label states volume as 73cl - the more common bottle size in several European countries at the time - while the glass-embossing states volume as 75cl.

This bottle is in good condition: label is loose though still attached; seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
