But later, when opening identical bottles sourced from the secondary market, it was clear that they weren’t the same. Often, they felt tired. At worst, they were flawed.
The inescapable conclusion was that something was happening to these rare bottles after they left chateaux and estates. In most cases, nobody could explain how or when.
This was an age-old problem, which few had so far been willing or incentivised to acknowledge. But it was obvious that a solution was long overdue.
At 1275, our vision is to extend the first chapter, so that the wine remains in safe hands throughout its entire life, as if it never left the security of its first home.
In doing so, our clients become part of the continued, unbroken legacy of these wines and all the history and artistry that they embody – entrusted to oversee their evolution in perfect conditions until they can be enjoyed.
