What happens when you combine one of the greatest rock bands of all time with one of the most consistent producers of fine red wines in the world?
The answer is the latest piece of incredible music memorabilia unearthed by the world leader in music collectables, eil.com.
When Queen released their last album to feature the great Freddie Mercury in 1996, they produced a number of different pieces of promotional memorabilia. Ranging from the run-of-the-mill mugs and t-shirts through to this exceptional bottle of 'Rothschild Chateau Lafite 1er Grand Cru Classe Paulliac' red wine.
The wine comes wrapped in its original 'Rothschild' paper and is housed inside a wooden crate complete with the 'Made In Heaven' logo.
Chateau Lafitte is one of the top five Chateaux in Bordeaux and they described the 1983 vintage as rich, powerful, and one of the finest available and a standard bottle, if there is such a thing would set you back a hefty sum in today’s wine market.
The Chateau Lafite insert that accompanies the bottle perfectly sums up the union.
"We feel the grandeur of this wine is the perfect compliment to mark the closing chapter of one of rock's most legendary careers. Just as wine connoisseurs say that it is a remarkable vintage, a classic in its own right, so the same shall be said of the new Queen album Made in heaven".
Eil's Queen expert Stephen Borkowski commented; "We have seen a great deal of fabulous Queen memorabilia recently and a bottle of Queen Lafite has always been on my most wanted list. So when I discovered it a few days ago you can imagine the immense satisfaction. I can't think of a better match than Chateaux Lafite and Queen. Both have unique exquisite qualities that set them apart in their respective fields".
Steve continued; "This is a collectable that appeals to a wider collecting market. It is a statement of quality and will without question take pride of place in a collection, be it music or wine".
