Lot Description Château Lafite-Rothschild--Vintage 1870 Pauillac, 1er cru classé. Château-bottled Embossed wax capsule "Coningham and Co". Handwritten Christie's Wine Department label. Ex sale 14 November 1978. Level top-shoulder Provenance: Believed to be from Glamis Castle, sold by the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, at Christie's on 24 June 1971 This was unquestionably one of the most famous and dependable of all pre-phylloxera clarets. The wine was purchased by the 13th Earl from his wine merchant, Coningham, and binned in the cellars beneath the raised courtyard of the castle in 1878. Of the forty-eight magnums originally purchased, forty-two remained untouched until packed and removed prior to the sale. The reason for this extraordinary situation is that Lafite 1870 was an unusually tannic wine, virtually black in colour and so tough that it took a full fifty years to become drinkable, by which time subsequent members of the family had lost interest. Forty-one magnums were sold in lots of three and six, the first lot including the original bin label inscribed "1870 magnums Lafitte (sic) Coningham", with the meticulously maintained Glamis Castle cellarbook open for inspection. One magnum was opened at a pre-sale dinner in Christie's boardroom early in June 1971 attended by a dozen of England's most erudite Bordeaux connoisseurs. The wine, happily, was perfect. My note made at the time : " perfect cork and level; remarkably deep and richly coloured; faultless - indeed exquisite - bouquet and flavour; beautifully balanced, mouthfilling, still tannic but velvety. Perfection".
