MESTREZAT GRANDS CRUS
Mestrezat Grands Crus is a leading Bordeaux negociant that was founded in 1815 by Domeine-Guillaume Mestrezat, who was the Consul of Switzerland in Bordeaux. Mestrezat flourished through several generations and owned two classified growths, Château Rayne-Vigneau and Château Grand Puy Ducasse for a few decades. Over the course of its history, Mestrezat Grands Crus has established itself as one of the leading wine merchants of Bordeaux, concentrating on its finest wines.
Owing to its close ties with top-tier chateaux, Mestrezat has amassed an impressive offering of large, rare format bottles.
Mestrezat always places the utmost importance on ensuring provenance and preservation of all their wines. As such, these bottles have come directly from the cellars of each chateau and have been stored in perfect conditions in Mestrezat's cellars, until being shipped to Sotheby's warehouse.
