AWC Fine Wine launch rare case made from Marie Antoinette Versailles oak
AWC Fine Wine has marked its 25th anniversary with the launch of a rare wine case made from the famous Marie Antoinette Versailles oak. The limited edition AWC 25th Anniversary Case has been hand crafted from the Palace of Versailles oak tree, reputed to have been a favourite of Marie Antoinette.
The case was designed and made by the craftsmen of Cordier Mestrezat in Bordeaux. Only one box has been made using the finest materials and it was shown for the first time in the UK at Masterpiece London. The Versailles oak tree stood for 320 years outlasting numerous French royals and the French Revolution. It was finally felled in 2005 after falling victim to drought and its wood acquired by Cordier Mestrezat.
In celebration of its 25 years, AWC has acquired four of the highest rated Bordeaux and Burgundy wines from the company’s founding 1990 vintage – Château Petrus, Château Latour, Château d’Yquem and Domaine de la Romanée Conti La Tache. These extraordinary wines are rarely, if ever, available on the open market and as such this is a true collector’s item and ultimate status symbol for fine wine. connoisseurs.
