But later, when opening identical bottles from the secondary market, something had changed. Often, the wines felt tired. At worst, they were flawed.
It was clear that something was happening to these rare bottles after they left châteaux and estates – but nobody could explain how or when.
This was an age-old problem that few were willing or incentivised to acknowledge. But it was obvious that collectors needed a solution.
At 1275, our vision is to extend the first chapter, so that each bottle remains in safe hands throughout its entire life.
In doing so, our clients become part of the continued, unbroken legacy of their wines and all the history and artistry that they embody.
