15 Dec Gift Ideas for The Super Rich
1. Limited edition Chateau Margaux wine
Chateau Margaux is a prestigious wine that has been made in Bordeaux for over two centuries. It is considered one of the finest wines in the world. In 2015, Chateau Margaux was ranked as one of the top ten best wine vintages from 1855 to the present.
The wine is complex and well-balanced, with an intense black currant and black cherry flavor. A limited-edition Chateau Margaux 2015 is available with gold engraving on black bottles.
In 1787, Jean-François de Laporte bought a vineyard and built a château on it to produce wines for the court of King Louis XVI and his Queen Marie Antoinette at Versailles, about 75 miles to the north. It became known as Château Margaux after many other vineyards were added to it over time by successive owners.
The design pays tribute to Pontallier, who served as the winery’s general manager for over three decades and oversaw the final year of wine production before his death.
