Auction: a Parisian enthusiast’s cellar and 3,000 fantastic lots

OL 20180914

With Yquems 2001, Petrus 1968 and other Chambertins Clos de Bèze from Armand Rousseau, bidders will definitely be fighting over the latest auctions… You will have noticed our excellent collection (sourced from one passionate collector with a natural cellar in Paris), which includes some excellent Burgundy wines. There are three catalogues entirely dedicated to the collection.

This fantastic cellar has slid into our latest auctions (accessible via our three catalogues “La cave d’un amateur”). Carefully put together over the course of many years, and kept in perfect condition, it includes the very best Bordeaux, such as Pavie 2005, Latour 2009, Angélus 2000, Margaux 2005, Haut-Brion 2005; some excellent, mature Rhone wines such as la Vieille Julienne, La Janasse, Beaucastel, J-L Chave. The collection’s crowning jewel is the selection of the great Burgundy wines, with an intelligent and impressive selection, particularly of white wines, with rare Chablis from Raveneau (the appellation’s mythical domain) but also iconic signatures in other appellations such as Coche Dury, Comtes Lafon, Leflaive, not to mention the more affordable Verget. With regards to the great Pinot Noirs, the collection is just as impressive (Les Amoureuses and G. Roumier’s Bonne-Mares in old vintages, Dugat-Py, Méo-Camuzet, Liger-Belair, Emmanuel Rouget…).

As well as this excellent cellar, the entire range of wines in our catalogue is just as tempting. In terms of Bordeaux, we have the greatest of dessert wines, in one of the best vintages that Sauternes has ever known: Château-d’Yquem 2001. The other prestigious “Premiers” feature strongly and in fantastic vintages: among others, we have Angélus 2000 et 2005, Lafite-Rothschild 2009 and 2010, Mouton-Rothschild 2010, Latour 1947, 1949, 2009, Margaux 2005, Haut-Brion 2005, Pavie 2005 and even Petrus 1968, 1980 and 2004. This sale is brimming with the best wines, be it classed growths or not, such as Pontet-Canet or Pavie Macquin, but also some potentially fantastic deals with the most specialist and interesting wines, in mature vintages such as Siran 1995 or Aiguilhe 2001. Good options to go with your autumnal meals, for instance red meats with mushrooms…

In Burgundy, this auction’s star signature is Armand Rousseau: we have their Chambertin Clos de Bèze 2006, 2005 or 2002, and their Chambertin 2010, 2009, 2008, 2006 or 1999. Unless you’d prefer the Richebourg 1999, Romanée-saint-vivant 1995 and Echézeaux 1990 from DRC, the Meursault premier Cru Les Perrières 2005 from Coche Dury or the Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses 1999 from Georges Roumier! 😉 All the best signatures and most prestigious terroirs in the region feature in these auctions: Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, Méo-Camuzet, Raveneau, Thibault Liger-Belair, Comtes Lafon, Comte Georges de Vogüé, Faiveley… Once more, you’ll notice an excellent collection of Chablis from Raveneau, including in old vintages (1975, 1989, 1990). But as always, don’t forget that the auctions are a good opportunity to fill your cellar with inexpensive wines, with wines from the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais, as well as the best wines from the regional appellation, such as the Burgundy from Domaine A & P de Villaine.

You’ll also be able to get your hands on the star of the Rhone valley: Hermitage Cuvée Cathelin 1995, an incredibly rare wine which is no longer commercialized (and therefore only available via the secondary market). The legendary Château Rayas is also available in several vintages, such as 1995 and 2009. It’s also worth noting the presence of some old Hermitage from J-L Chave, from the 1970s. The most important representatives of each appellation are there: Chave for Hermitage, Rayas and Henri Bonneau in Châteauneuf-du-pape, Gonon for the Saint-Joseph, Gangloff, Guigal and Jamet for Côte-Rôtie, Thierry Allemand in Cornas. If you’re looking for a bargain, the satellite domains of Rayas are perfect.

Elsewhere, these auctions are the opportunity for you to find the vintage Champagne that you’re looking for, perhaps Louis Roederer’s Cristal 1996 or the Extra Brut 2005 from Selosse. In the Jura, don’t miss the lusted-after Overnoy wines; in the Loire, taste a Vouvray Goutte d’Or 2011 and 2015 from Clos Naudin or Clos Rougeard’s wines.

Some of the best foreign wines are also accessible here, like the Unico from Vega Sicilia. You will also have the chance to buy the classic whiskies like the Honshu-Nagano Karuizawa 30 years 1985-2015 or the 18-year-old Kentucky Sazerac Spring Release 90 Proof.

Happy bidding!
