This is a dream sale for all Bordeaux enthusiasts, Burgundy lovers and fans of Château Rayas or Grange des Pères… among others. Not to mention the wide selection of wines from the rest of the world.
Starting with Bordeaux, the choice is broad in every sense of the word: quantity (multiple lots of 12, six, three or single bottles), vintages (the best, but also very old vintages, like 1902, 1924, 1935, 1949), appellations (Saint-Emilion, Pauillac, Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pessac-Léognan, Sauternes), producers (the best of Lafite Rothschild, Haut-Brion, Ausone, Petrus and Yquem, but also the less famous domaines, such as Léoville Poyferré, Gruaud Larose, Cantemerle, Pressac), and finally, price, with nearly 600 lots available at no reserve price.
In Burgundy, the selection contains many unique lots (of single bottles) and relatively recent vintages, some that are ready to drink (1990, 1995, 1999) and others that deserve to age a few years (2005, 2009, 2010). Emmanuel Rouget, Armand Rousseau and Coche Dury are very well-represented at this auction, while you will also find Romanée-Conti (La Tâche, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Montrachet, Echézeaux and Grands-Echézeaux), Vosne-Romanée from Henri Jayer, Echézeaux of Mugneret-Gibourg, Chambertin from Leroy, Bonnes-Mares of Louis Jadot, Comtes Lafon and more.
We also offer a great selection of vintages from the most prestigious Champagne houses: Louis Roederer Cristal (in bottle or jeroboam), Dom Pérignon, Bollinger, Taittinger, Venoge and Veuve Clicquot with the Reserve and La Grande Dame.
From the Rhône Valley, this auction affords buyers the opportunity to acquire one of the many wines from Château Rayas and its satellites – Fonsalette, Pignan, La Pialade, Château des Tours – but also Côte-Rôtie La Landonne from Guigal or Jean-Michel Gerin, Hermitage Ermitage l’Ermite by Chapoutier, Côte-Rôties from Jamet… A number of items are available in magnum and many lots are offered without a reserve price.
We also picked some high quality wines from the Loire Valley: Clos Rougeard, Alphonse Mellot, Dagueneau, some Chinons from Charles Joguet and Vouvrays from Clos Naudin and Huet.
In Alsace, you will find many Pinot Gris (as well as Rieslings and Gewürztraminers) from Weinbach, Altenbourg, Hugel and Zind-Humbrecht. This sale also includes some great Jura wines, like Château-Chalon 1953 or Ganevat. In Languedoc, there are amazing multiple lots, with an impressive series from La Grange des Pères, Mas Daumas Gassac and Clos Marie. And don’t forget the Jurançons, Monbazillacs, Bandols and more.
Considering the various spirits on auction, there is a fine selection of old Armagnacs (1914, 1924, 1928), Cognacs (Hennessy, Rémy Martin, Delamain), as well as many Scotch Whiskys.
Finally, our offer from the rest of the world keeps increasing, with wines from South Africa (Klein Constantia), Australia (Rosemont Estate or Chris Ringland) and New Zealand present at this auction. There is also a beautiful Spanish collection (Abadia Retuerta and numerous Riojas) and fine Italian wines (Piedmont with Angelo Gaja and Sandrone, and Tuscany), as well as a selection from Argentina, Germany (Weingut Robert Weil, Egon Müller), Austria (Kracher) and the Napa Valley (Dominus).
