DiMola Bros cellar clean-out leads to fine wine find
Some people prefer fine wine with a nice piece of meat, or a fancy tray of cheese and fruit. I prefer mine just out of a demolished cellar.
I found this bottle, filled three-fourths of the way with a 1969 Bordeaux, in a cellar clean-out a few years ago.
The top of the label says, “Mis en bouteilles au Chateau,” which literally means, “put in bottle” in French. The producer, Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, has been a wine-producing giant since the 19th century. It produces the “finest wine in the world,” according to antique-wine.com.
When I found this bottle, it was not lying completely flat on the wine rack. The cork was rotted, so about one-fourth of the liquid had evaporated. On snooth.com, this wine is selling for $1,059. Of course, the cork isn’t rotted and the bottle is full. I guess I’m out of luck.
