Massandra, 1937

Massandra Kuchuk Lambat Black Muscat Sothebys Massandra Collection (Includes Original Box as illustrated)

Description and Reviews:
Sothebys Massandra Collection

Dark amber and murky from fine sediment, nose of sandalwood, coffee, brown sugar, rancio, dried fig, honeysuckle and raisins, fresh cut of acidity, spicier in the mouth with green apple burst and complex melange of coffee, caramel, toasted almond, vanilla and raisins, extraordinary harmony of primary and tertiary character, lithe and vivid through very long finish. Outstanding.

The wineries in Massandra were built during the reign of Czar Nicholas II. During the process, wine caves containing thousands of bottles were constructed beneath the city. This “personal wine cellar” of the Czar contained tens of thousands of bottles. These caves survived the Russian Revolution, both World Wars, the fall of Communism, and Yakov Smirnoff. In 1990, about 13,000 of these bottles – never before available in the West – were put to auction
