auctionAnother auction has arrived and it’s a veritable Aladdin’s cave of fine wines and tomorrow’s gems for all budgets. Here’s a more detailed look at the catalogue.

An accomplished choice of mature Sauternes also features in this auction: many bottles of Château d’Yquem, Climens 1926, Caillou 1943, Gilette 1962, Sigalas Rabaud 1966, Rieussec 1970.

You’ll find an extensive selection of fine whites from Burgundy in this auction, including a rare run of Meursaults and Corton Charlemagne from Coche-Dury, offerings from Comtes Lafon and Arnaud Ente and the Chablis Grand Cru from Raveneau. For the reds, Henri Jayer, La Tâche from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, La Romanée from Comte Liger-Belair and even a Musigny from Faiveley in the 1996 vintage are just some of the superb possibilities. Don’t forget to peruse the bottles from Leflaive and Ramonet as well as the selection from tomorrow’s big names: Roulot, Georges Roumier and Mikulski.

From the Rhône Valley, feast your eyes on the bottles from Château Rayas and Henri Bonneau, Châteauneuf du Pape royalty. If you’re after Côte-Rôtie then the single vineyard wines from Guigal in the wonderful 2009 vintage should satisfy. The fantastic Cornas is represented by the big names of this appellation, responsible for bringing it to stardom: Thierry Allemand and Auguste Clap and from Hermitage you’ll find delightful offerings from Chave.

The Loire features the mythic Cuvée de la Goutte d’Or (Clos Naudin), more than thirty lots from Clos Rougeard but also plenty from Dagueneau, Richard Leroy, Alphonse Mellot, Alexandre Bain and François Chidaine.

Finally, be sure to browse the other regions. You’ll find all the big names: Grange des Pères, Selosse, Krug… and hidden gems too such as Ganevat (Jura) and Domaine René Engel. There is also an impressive selection of Armagnacs, Cognacs and Whiskys and some excellent non-French wines.

Happy bidding!
