Auction: 1891-2016, mythical cuvées and the best kept secrets AUCTION CLOSED

VE1With almost 5,000 lots up for auction, this latest catalogue offers up the rising stars and the most iconic bottles from the world’s finest vineyards.

Lose yourself in the 1,500 lots of magnificent Bordeaux. Lovers of old vintages rejoice: you’ll find plenty of mature grands crus classés such as Cos d’Estournel (1970, 1974, 1981 and 1986), Haut-Brion (1964, 1967 and 1975), Mouton-Rothschild (1957, 1970, 1975 and 1988), Cheval Blanc (1980, 1981 and 1982) and Pontet-Canet (1983 and 1986).  The finest wines from Pessac-Léognan are also here, including an impressive run of Smith Haut Laffite in the 1979, 2005, 2009 and 2012 vintages. There is also some Petrus in bottle and magnum format as well as some old Château d’Yquem from 1921 to 2015.  The double magnum of Haut-Brion (1979) is another gem in large format.

The most prestigious Burgundy appellations are all here too, including a Richebourg 1999 and an Echézeaux 2000 from the celebrated Domaine de la Romanée-Conti; a rare Musigny 2010 and some Nuits-Saints-Georges 2000, 2009 and 2010 from Domaine Mugnier. Some Gevrey-Chambertin from 1978 to 2011 from Domaine Armand Rousseau, beautiful Chablis from Domaine Dauvissat and sublime Chassagne-Montrachet from the prestigious Domaine Ramonet complete the selection. Looking for a savvy purchase? Be sure to eye up the Corton-Charlemagne 2003 from Louis Latour and the Clos-de-Vougeot 2011 from Domaine de la Vougeraie, both up for auction without a reserve price…

From the Rhône you’ll find outstanding Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Henri Bonneau in the 1992, 2000, 2009, 2010 and 2012 vintages rubbing shoulders with the organic Côte-Rôtie from Jean-Michel Gerin, not to mention Hermitage from Domaine Chave and Cornas from Domaine Clape. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape-Pignan 2003 and the Côtes-du-Rhône 2007 from Emmanuel Reynaud (owner of Château Rayas) are some of the Rhône’s best kept secrets.

Other French regions are also well represented in this auction. The Saumur-Champigny and Saumur Brézé from Clos Rougeard are available in the 2008 and 2015 vintage. Vintage Bollinger and the ultra-rare Vouvray Goutte d’Or 2015 from Clos Naudin (only made 5 times in the last 60 years) will surely tempt you.

Finally, cross the border and peruse the selection from some of the biggest names in the Italian vineyards: Roberto Voerzio, Angelo Gaia and Dal Forno.

Happy bidding!
