Dessert wine with a superb pedigree and in excellent condition. We believe this is one of, if not THE last bottle available.

Brief Description


With the level at the base of the neck, good label and capsule and a light gold colour, this dessert wine is in excellent condition.


In 1815 Herman Cruse, a Danish German merchant from Segeberg, now in Germany settled in Bordeaux, where he co-founded the firm Cruse et Hirschfeld in 1819. In 1820 he married Emma Raake who came from a powerful family in Brem-Sur-Mer. With their financial support and to the astonishment of the crippled industry, he indulged in a momentous speculation by purchasing nearly all of the exceptional 1847 vintage of Bordeaux Grands Crus during the worst days of 1848. That year's harvest turned out to be excellent and he made a fortune. In 1850, the firm Cruse et Hirschfeld came under the sole control of the Cruse family and was renamed Cruse et Fils Frères. Cruse developed the firm with the help of his three sons to become one of the major wine-trading companies in Bordeaux.

Today the family own Château d'Issan (Margaux), Château Corbin (Saint Emilion) and Château Laujac in the Médoc. A blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Views

The higher amount of sugar in Dessert Wines make them a safer bet than reds. Given the vintage and its condition, this 1969 bottle has all the promise of being a very special wine.
