With approximately 5,000 bottles auctioned until 28th October, you’ll find a magnificent series of the best vintages from Château Margaux, many prestigious wines from France and elsewhere, but also a good selection of ready to drink and affordable wines.
As always, this sale displays a particularly large selection of Bordeaux from confidential producers to the most sought after grands crus. Château Margaux is in the spotlight with a rare vertical spread across eight vintages from 1982 to 2012 and including an OWC of the 1983 vintage and a large collection of 2010. You will also be able to bid on Château Latour (1995, 1999, 2000, 2004) and its little brother Forts de Latour (2005, 2009). Many other famous crus from the left bank are offered (Lafite, Mouton, La Mission Haut-Brion, Haut-Brion, Pichon Baron, Pichon Comtesse…). On the right bank, note Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Trotanoy… and because not everyone is ready to pay for such myth, have a look at the 40ish lots without reserve price!
Burgundy is brilliantly represented with some glorious bottles, naturally including the wines of Domaine de la Romanée Conti (La Tache, Richebourg, Echezeaux and Grands-Echezeaux) and the rare Vosne-Romanée from Comte Liger-Belair. Also note the Chambertin from Dugat-Py, the Bâtard-Montrachet from Domaine Leflaive, and the Vosne-Romanée from Emmanuel Rouget which stared on iDealwine’s previous auction. Again, numerous lots of Burgundy without reserve price, and hundreds of exceptional opportunities…
