This auction will round off July on a beautiful note. Here are some ideas to point you in the right direction.
Let’s start with Burgundy, with its refined and delicate reds. Some of the region’s finest jewels make an appearance in this sale, and in their best vintages! What would you say to a 1990 Musigny from Georges Roumier, a 2000 Corton-Charlemagne from Coche-Dury, or maybe a 2005 Clos-de-la-Roche Magnum from Jacky Truchot? There are actually several lots from the famous Georges Roumier available this time, as well as some from Armand Rousseau…you’ll want to look out for those ones. Equally unmissable are some rare bottles from Domaine Emmanuel Rouget (Henri Jayer’s nephew) and the highly prized Domaine d’Auvenay (Lalou Bize-Leroy’s estate). And another Burgundian classic is Domaine Dugat-Py. If it’s not a big star you’re after, perhaps head to a nicely-priced gem like Dureuil-Janthial, Nicolas Maillet, René Bouvier, Hubert Lamy, Jacqueson or Geantet-Pansiot.
Whilst Bordeaux doesn’t have quite the same rarity factor, this certainly plays a role in its grands crus classés, especially in their finest vintages. This auction offers the chance for you to acquire a legendary 2000 bottle from Mouton-Rothschild, Lafite-Rothschild, Margaux, Latour, and Haut-Brion! The king of Bordeaux, Petrus has some of its most superb bottles here, notably the 1989, 1990, 2009, 2010 and 2015. There are also some real collectors’ lots in the mix, with a 1926 Haut-Brion, a 1956 Latour, a 1959 and 1961 Talbot, and a 1962 Canon la Gaffelière. Finally, if you’re after an old Bordeaux that’s easier on the wallet, take a look at Fourcas-Hosten (2000), La Tour Carnet (1995), Carbonnieux, and le Crock.
From the Rhône valley, we have some beautifully mature cuvées from Rayas, Jean-Louis Chave (Hermitage), Auguste Clape (Cornas), Henri Bonneau and Beaucastel (Châteauneuf-du-Pape). If you want a bottle to age in your own cellar, you might want to look for a Côte-Rôtie from Jamet, Gangloff, or Gonon.
The choice of wines from the Loire is exceptional. The sweet 1947 Vouvray and 2015 Goutte d’Or from Clos Naudin should make some of you happy, much like Dagueneau’s 2014 Astéroide and the numerous, delicious cuvées from Clos Rougeard. Do note the highly rare Génèse cuvée from Jardins Esmeraldins, as well as some lovely bottles from Stéphane Bernaudeau.
Of course, it’s impossible to mention every cuvée, but hopefully these few lines have convinced you of the wonderful selection we’ve prepared for you!
