The weather picture was more interesting today than the birds, with bright sunshine throughout and only wisps of high cirrus cloud adding some contrast to an otherwise azure blue sky.

Lesser Black-backed Gull
Great Black-backed Gull

1945 to 2005 – Mouton Rothschild Vertical
"I am always blown away by the 1959...one of the greatest Moutons made...Astonishingly young and unevolved...It is exceptionally powerful and super–extracted...should continue to evolve for another 20–30 years. It may well be a 100–year wine!" – Robert Parker on the 100–point rated 1959.
This is an extended and perfectly preserved vertical of Château Mouton Rothschild. Acquired from the pristine cellars of a noted private collector, this is a consecutive vertical in immaculate condition. Spanning 60 years, the contents include Mouton's greatest vintages of the past century and feature four perfectly rated, 100–point wines. Of particular note are the standout wines produced in 1945, 1947, 1955, 1959, 1961, 1982 and 1986. These are all highly sought–after collectables. The older vintages are especially valuable as the number of surviving specimens worldwide is now severely diminished.
