Coming up this week, an exceptional auction that includes the best of Bordeaux, Burgundy grands crus, a large format spirit and many more surprises…
Let’s begin with two sumptuous lots of six magnums from Château Lafite-Rothschild, one in the 2002 vintage and the other form 2006. Fans of this Pauillac property won’t be disappointed, finding legendary vintage such as the 1989 and the 1990. Staying with the left bank and with a fine year, a jeroboam of 1990 Haut-Brion is seeking a bidder, as is a lot of 12 bottles of 1989 Château Margaux. Crossing the Garonne now, we have myriad Petrus cuvées (1989, 1993, 1994, 1995, 2006) sourced directly from the estate’s cellar. A lot of 12 bottles of 1989 Château Ausone will delight anyone who enjoys Saint-Emilion. And for those of you who find it hard to commit to just one bottle, we have an assorted case of the finest Bordeaux châteaux (Haut Brion – Latour – Margaux – Mouton Rothschild – Mission Haut Brion – Yquem – Petrus – Cheval Blanc – Lafite Rothschild), all in the superb 2005 vintage.
Heading to Burgundy, you’ll spot a bottle that is woefully uncommon on our site, a 1990 Musigny grand cru from Domaine Coche-Dury that will leave fans of Chardonnay speechless. The unbeatable Armand Rousseau, in Chambertin, continues to surprise is year after year with its elegant Pinot cuvées. Here we have the 2009 vintage, one of the finest this region has seen in recent decades. This one should be left in the cellar for a few years in order to flourish, but if you’re a little more impatient, we have a 1987 Chambertin from the very same Armand Rousseau. Other Burgundian domains in the mix are Joseph Drouhin from Montrachet (1985), Dugat-Py from Chambertin (2017) and Domaine d’Auvenay from Auxey-Duresses (1999).
As for the other regions, we’ve got a whole selection of vintages from Château Rayas (1989, 2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009) as well as a lot of three Cristal bottles in the 1989 vintage from the Champagne house Louis Roederer. And since the range of spirits we have on offer is getting stronger and stronger, it’s worth mentioning the magnum of 1989 Cognac from Bisquit & Dubouché, available alongside an 18-year-old bottle of Macallan single malt whisky.
