With three auctions now taking place every month, iDealwine has picked up the pace. With an extra auction every month comes a larger catalogue full of rich and varied treasures. Be sure to reap the benefits! Here’s a look at some the highlights in this latest auction.
Burgundy accounts for more lots than any other French region in this catalogue (a general trend these days) and boasts some iconic bottles, including Montrachet from Comtes Lafon in the 1999 vintage and from Ramonet in the 1993, Meursault 2007 and 2009 from Coche Dury, the magnificent Musigny 2006 from Domaine Roumier and Gevrey-Chambertin 2001 and 2006 from Domaine Rousseau. There is also a sublime Clos de Vougeot 2004 from Domaine de la Vougeraie in magnum format. Note also the presence of some ultra-rare bottles from Domaine Jacques Prieur, such as Musigny in the 1991, 2006 and 2012 vintage, as well as a magnum of Chambertin 2008. There’s also plenty on offer for enthusiasts looking to start their cellar off with some big names at sensible prices: Marc Colin (Saint Aubin), Leflaive (Montrachet), Joblot (Givry), Dauvissat (Chablis), Jobard (Mercurey) and finally Château de Chamirey (Mercurey), a firm iDealwine favourite.
The leading lights of Bordeaux are all present in this auction too, including the illustrious Petrus (around twenty bottles) in a variety of classic vintages: 1987, 1993, 2001, and 2011. A stunning selection of Château d’Yquem, Château Margaux (including a magnum of the 1990 vintage), Château Mouton-Rothschild and the sublime Château Angelus also grace the catalogue. For those looking to cinch some top notch Bordeaux at savvy prices, consider the offerings from Château La Lagune, Château Rieussec and Château Sociando-Mallet. Finally, let us draw your attention to the Château d’Yquem 1996 and the Clos des Jacobins 2014 up for auction without a reserve price.
From the Rhône, let yourself be tempted by the sumptuous Châteauneuf du Pape from Château Rayas, Domaine Bonneau & Fils and Domaine du Clos des Papes or the Hermitage from Jean-Louis Chave and Domaine Guigal. Note also some of the lots from Domaine Beaucastel with no reserve price.
The impressive selection from the Loire includes many wines from some of the rising stars of this booming region. You’ll find offerings from the universally lauded Clos Rougeard and Domaine Dagueneau. Don’t miss the rare Les Nöels de Montbenault 2014 and 2015 from Domaine Richard Leroy and the beautiful bottles from Domaine des Roches Neuves. Finally, be sure to take a look at the Sancerre from Domaine Vatan and Domaine François Cotat. Their mineral finesse is sublime.
From the other regions of France, we strongly recommend passing by the Jura, whre you’ll find the fantastic vin jaune from Domaine Overnoy in the 1986 vintage. From the Languedoc, discover the many delights from Domaine de La Grange des Pères and from Alsace, snatch up a Riesling from Domaine Trimbach. The South West offers you Jurançon and Madiran and an enormous choice of old Armagnac. Whiskey lovers be sure to check out the selection here too. Finally, we head to Spain where a superb collection of Flor de Pingus Ribera del Duero awaits you.
