Waddesdon House: Cellars

Lafite-Rothschild and Mouton-Rothschild are at the forefront of the fine wine shrine, both estates purchased by the Rothschilds (French branch) in the 1800s. Waddesdon is an outpost for such, with an impressive cellar and a quite decent wine shoppe upstairs. They do tastings that appear quite accessible and affordable. Actually, I am more of a Burgundy kind of guy, but I'll also drink a good Bordeaux.
Comes in a variety of shapes and sizes

Ditto; I never can remember whether it's Lafite-Rothschild
or Mouton-Rothschild that has the artiste labels...

Priceless stock, behind bars

From a recent tasting; I was tempted to lick the table...

1787 was a good year...way before the
Rothschilds, however
