A new auction is open for bids! Patient enough to wait till the bottle of your dreams comes on sale, but eager enough to watch like a hawk over the coming days? If the answer is yes, you’ll love what we have in store in this month’s third auction! Catalogue highlights include rows and rows of exciting Bordeaux and Burgundy now in their drinking windows. As always, iDealwine specialises in the hardest-to-find vintages, and if that’s what you’re here for, you certainly won’t be disappointed!
Let’s start with the top lots from Burgundy, where a 2000 Chevalier-Montrachet from Auvenay is estimated at €20,000. Two lots of two white Auxey-Duresses 2003 and 2004 from the same estate are also up for grabs. In addition, Lalou Bize-Leroy’s wines famous feature, including her 1996 Corton-Charlemagne (estimated at €10,000) from Domaine Leroy.
To top it all off, one of Burgundy’s best-known climats – Romanée Conti, a monopole vineyard of the eponymous estate – is offered in quality vintages, 1982, 1986 or 1992 (the last estimated at €18,000). This one is sure to generate a lot of interest!
On the Bordeaux side, this sale features Petrus with most notably a lot of three bottles all in the 2014 vintage – perfect for the more patient among us. For those with human foibles, Petrus is also available in its drinking window, try 1981, 1990, or 1998 vintages.
The Loire Valley continues its journey through the auctions with wines from the famous Clos Rougeard – Le Bourg or Les Poyeux in young or old vintages. Fans of fine Chenin will delight in the opportunity to acquire recent bottles from Richard Leroy or Stéphane Bernaudeau, in order to keep them in the cellar for a few years and taste them at maturity.
Beyond France, there are over 200 bottles from Piedmont set to go under the hammer – including bottles from Cappellano, Francesco Rinaldi, Giacomo Conterno and Vanotu Pelissero. The vintages go back to 1937, including three barolos by Giacomo Borgogno. Happy bidding!
