These new auctions offer a varied range of wines honouring ninety years of vinous history. We look back through the decades to (re)discover the iconic names and forgotten heroes.
Celebrate the somewhat carefree 1928 with the Sauternes Deuxième Grand Cru Classé Château Filhot. Its golden colour, intense aromas and energy on the palate are simply irresistible.
1938 is incarnated by the Armagnac from Château de Laubade, a vector of meditative moments and witness to the dawn of troubled times.
1958 offers the magnificent Barolo DOCG from Mascarello, known for the excellent aging potential of Nebbiolo. It’s difficult to resist its intense notes of wilted flowers, small red cherry and sweet spices. This Piedmontese icon is not the only non-French star of these auctions. Lovers of Riesling should turn to the Mosel and wines from Maxim Grunhaus Carl Von Schubert. Spanish wine aficionados will be delighted by the mature vintages of Unico Alvarez from Vega Sicilia and Flor de Pingus from Peter Sisseck.
The exceptional 1978 vintage, especially in the northern Rhône, is embodied here by Chapoutier’s Hermitage. Elegance, power, longevity and prestige are the watchwords for this region which has plenty more to offer. Fans of Syrah will find some delectable Saint-Joseph from Gangloff, magnums of Côte-Rôtie Brune and Blonde from Guigal and Cornas from Auguste Clape. If you’re on the search for white wines, let us point out Georges Vernay’s magnificent Condrieu, or the rare Saint-Joseph Les Oliviers from Domaine Gonon.
1988 reveals myriad mature wines from Bordeaux, a region that has yet again proved its allure at auction. Classed growths from Saint-Emilion (Château Angélus), Pauillac (with the biodynamic Pontet-Canet), Pessac-Léognan (Château Haut-Brion), Crus Bourgeois (Château Lalande-Borie) and sweet wines (Château Lafaurie Peyraguey, 1er grand cru classé de Sauternes) are just a small taste of the vast choice that awaits you.
1998 takes us Burgundy, with several fantastic opportunities to taste a Pinot Noir or Chardonnay with some bottle age. Can we tempt you with a delicate Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses from Amiot-Servelle, a deep Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux-Saint-jacques from Denis Mortet or the Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru from Comte de Vogüé? As for the whites, how about a Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru from Etienne Sauzet and the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles from Domaine Leflaive?
The zeitgeist in 2018 is undoubtedly the move towards healthier wines, whether they are organic, bioydamic or natural. An array of gems from Domaine de l’Anglore awaits you, as well as the Vin de France Pèdres Blanques from Rié and Hirofumi Shoji, former students of Frédéric Cossard who craft fresh, fine and elegant wines with great depth.
