“ Until about the 1950s, many Bordeaux châteaus sold their wines in barrels, either to negociants in Bordeaux or directly to international merchants such as the Belgium-based Vandermeulen or Berry Bros. & Rudd in London. These merchants then bottled the wine themselves, hence the designation of a “Vandermeulen bottling." (Today it would be very rare for a top estate not to bottle all of its production itself; on the label, this is indicated as “mise en bouteille au château.") These merchant-bottled wines can be just fine, but some collectors prefer bottlings that come from the original château.”
簡單一點就是 Label 上沒有註明 “mise en bouteille au château." 真是不同 Label 、不同經歴、不同享受 , 亦因為咁才能成就一代傳奇!
