All the biggest names in Bordeaux from the most lauded vintages are here, including many Premiers Grands Crus (good news if you’re after the second wine ‘Carruades’ from Lafite-Rothschild, some bottles of Mouton-Rothschild or six bottles of the 1989 Haut Brion!). There are also many exceptional offerings from Yquem that will appeal to the serious collector, not to mention some rare finds from Château Latour. From the right bank there are some iconic bottles of 1990 and 1989 Petrus while there are certainly some gems to be snatched up at a great price from Léoville-Poyferré, Pontet-Canet, Pichon Comtesse and Cos d’Estournel.
The selection from Burgundy is a feast for the eyes, the pièce de resistance being without doubt a rare and precious bottle of 1969 Romanée-Conti. This auction brings together the most sought-after bottles across all the appellations, including a Musigny Grand Cru from Domaine Leroy, a Meursault Les Perrières Premier Cru from Coche Dury and a Bonnes-Mares from Domaine d’Auvenay. Rare finds come from Domaine des Comtes Lafon such as a Montrachet, a Meursault Premier Cru Goutte d’Or and some of the more modest, yet delectable, Volnay Premier Cru Santenots du Milieu. If your weakness is Puligny-Montrachet then this auction has plenty from top producers such as Leflaive, Etienne Sauzet, Henri Clerc, Bonneau du Martray. In the reds there is the very best from the Côte de Nuits from the likes of Cécile Tremblay, Méo-Camuzet and Dugat-Py. Finally, from Chablis you will find the spoils from the two masters of this appellation: Dauvissat and Raveneau.
There are plenty of gems waiting to be discovered from the Rhône. Starting in the northern Rhône you will find a Château Rayas from Châteauneuf-du-Pape as well as many fabulous offerings from the likes of la Famille Perrin, Domaine Stéphane Ogier, Domaine Henri Bonneau and Domaine de la Janasse. Don’t get us started on the delectable selection of Cornas from Clape and Thierry Allemand, the Hermitages from Jean-Louis Chave and, from this same appellation, a great many bottles of La Chapelle from Paul Jaboulet Aîné! As you reach the high slopes of the Côte-Rôtie, you will find an admirable selection of Côte-Brune from Jamet.
From the Loire there are some excellent wines to be had, including some Clos-de-la-Coulée-de-Serrant from Nicolas Joly in Savennières and some Silex and Pur-Sang Pouilly-Fumé from Dagueneau. Don’t forget to take a look at what the grandes maisons like Clod Rougeard have to offer, not to mention Domaine des Roches Neuves.
Champagne offers a dreamy selection of bottles including a Cristal from Roederer. Alsace features wines from only the very best vintages such as a 1990 magnum of Riesling from Trimbach while fans of the Jura will love the vins jaunes from Tissot and Rollet. Non-French wines include two bottles from cult Napa producers Screaming Eagle.
Excellent wines for under €50
This auction also offers some outstanding value wines. From Bordeaux cases of 12 from Château Phélan-Dégur in the prestigious Saint-Estèphe appellation will not go unnoticed! Gems from Sauternes include offerings from Château Rieussec and Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey. Burgundy has some good deals including many bottles for less than €50 from appellations such as Puligny-Montrachet, Chambolle-Musigny, Meursault and Pommard, not to mention some Grands Crus such as Chablis Vaudésir. From the Rhône, wines from Château des Tours are well worth a try, as are those from Daumas Gassac, Domaine de Montcalmès, Domaine de Trévalon and Château Simone in the Languedoc Roussillon.
