Auction: private collection, a celebration of Europe in 4,000 bottles. AUCTION CLOSED 21/03/2018

private collection auction oneThis astonishing collection at auction until the 21st March brings together bottles from the finest vineyards in Europe and the world. With 4,000 bottles from a dozen different countries, these bottles are, nonetheless, united in their origin: they all come from one single collector.

The owner of this collection has spent the last 40 years amassing it and the wines, generally sourced direct from the domains, have been carefully stored in a natural, vaulted cave with a clay floor in Burgundy. The amount of lots up for auction counts for 50% of the owner’s collection.

There are plenty of iconic bottles up for sale, including the incredibly rare Trockenbeerenauslese, or TBA, from Egon Müller, the ultimate reference in sweet wine and whose fine Selection de Grains Nobles is available in the 1976 vintage – a first for iDealwine! This unique bottle stands alongside the best examples from outside France (Harlan Estate, Ornellaia – Masseto-, Voerzio, Gaja, Sandrone…). The selection from France is a myriad of big names too (Petrus, Yquem, Margaux, Domaine Leflaive, Coche-Dury, Rayas, Trimbach…).

private collection auction fourWhat makes this collection so interesting is the variety and abundance of cuvées up for auction individually, allowing bidders to choose an eclectic mix of bottles. There are also some attractive starting prices in this auction as this savvy collector, not being a label chaser, has built up an admirable selection of fruit forward wines from Beaujolais and the Loire. The auction will be online until the 21st March, happy bidding!
