This was first bottled in 1978 and rebottled in 2002 for a private collector. This is bottle number 4 of 56.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Unlike the other bottles in this collection, the box does not have a plaque stating the vintage.
Note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. Older bottles often contain small amounts of sediment. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
