These auctions combine many of the world’s finest wines from the masters of winemaking, with cases by artists Mondrian, Koons and more, bought directly from the Duclot house. Spirits enthusiasts will also have incredible choice with bottles of cognac, armagnac and whisky.
Starting in Bordeaux, this sale has a catalogue entirely dedicated to a private collection where the wines were stored in perfect conditions. Over the years, this Bordeaux enthusiast collected wines from the biggest names in the region, with Château Margaux, Haut-Brion, Petrus, Cheval Blanc and many more. The pièce de résistance is the dozen assorted cases from the négociant Duclot, in vintages such as 2001, 2008 and 2006.
In Burgundy, mature vintages abound, with a 1988 Chambertin from Domain Leroy in pride of place; the same vintage features in wines from Coche Dury, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and the Louis Latour house. We have even managed to find some gems of grands crus 2005 and 2010 from Claude Dugat, produced in only tiny quantities. Truly rare finds are hidden in amongst the hundred or so bottles: don’t miss out on this chance to make an Armand Rousseau or Comtes Lafon yours.
In Champagne, sharing is caring: we are delighted to present a Nabuchodonor and Methuselah of Taittinger. For collectors of interesting bottles, a selection of more than 40 bottles of Chartreuse de Tarragone (from Savoy), going all the way back to 1966, is only a bid away.
The Rhone is brimming with fine mature wines: Jean-Louis Chave’s remarkable Hermitages (1998 and 1999) stand side-by-side with Guigal Côte-Rôtie (1991 and 2000). Large bottles of Chapoutier Saint-Joseph, as well as magnums and double magnums of Clos Saint-Jean are also there for the taking.
Heading over to the Loire valley, you’ll find Dagueneau’s world-renowned Silex. Natural and biodynamic winemakers such as Nicolas Joly and Stéphane Bernaudeau are flying the flag for the region that has become a true hub for these categories of wines. Mature vintages such as 2005 Clos Rougeard and 1996 Vouvray from Domaine Huet will be sure to make bidders happy.
Other regions also have their share of prestigious names, such as the masters of the Jura, Ganevat, Pierre Overnoy and Stéphane Tissot. Lovers of Alsace wines will spot the excellent domains Trimbach, Zind-Humbrecht and Marcel Deiss. Finally, for those of you interested in spirits, try an armagnac (Lafontan, Peuchet, Château Laubade), cognac (Henessy, Delamain), or whisky (Glenmorangie, Hakushu)…
