Summer of ’69 | Château Margaux 1969

Posted by admin in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Chinese New Year always means a busy January at Arden Fine Wines during a lull in our domestic market (dry January, no money left after Xmas etc etc).

We were tasked with getting a bottle (among others) of 1969 Château Margaux to Hong Kong for the New Year – but with not much notice…

This late-’60s Bordeaux vintage was the second-smallest crop of the decade after 1961.

The low yield and rampant inflation meant high prices when they were released.

This precious bottle was dispatched from London on a Friday afternoon and arrived in Hong Kong – via Paris, Mumbai, and Guangzhou – on Monday night (GMT).

Not bad going – but a bit of notice is always appreciated… 🙏

In the meantime, other vintages of Château Margaux are available from Arden Fine Wines.
