Private Collection | Old vintages, natural wines, and large formats

A snapshot of bottles from the private collection wine auction on iDealwine

Ending on 6 June 2023, iDealwine is dedicating a new auction to a seller who knows how things work around here. Backed by three previous experiences, he is once again presenting a piece of his fabulous collection, crafted from scratch over some thirty years and stored in a professional warehouse in Paris. Needless to say, iDealwine is very excited to unveil this selection of more than 3,000 top-quality bottles.

  • Vintages with a splash of colour

Thirty years of collecting has sharpened the curiosity and knowledge of this seller who will be parting ways with a large variety of wines. Sparkling (white and rosé), whites, rosés, reds and sweet wines spanning more than a century of vintages, from 1900 to 2021. Collectors’ items like Château Montrose 1900, Mouton Rothschild 1905, Lafite Rothschild 1916 and Rayne Vigneau 1916, 1933 and 1936 all await your bids.

  • Generous formats

Generosity seems to be the common denominator amongst wine collectors. This is proven by the great variety of large formats (bottles greater than 750ml). For example, there are:

  • Nearly 300 magnums: Champagne Larmandier-Bernier, Gevrey-Chambertin and Mercurey de Derain, or even Saumur-Champigny from Domaine La Porte Saint-Jean
  • Double magnums: Cheval Blanc 1953, Frédéric Cossard, Côteaux du Languedoc 2013 from Montcalmès
  • A beautiful selection of natural wines

As a well-informed connoisseur, the seller has taken care to acquire bottles that were meticulously crafted, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Unsurprisingly, nuggets of natural wines emerge. Among them are La Bohème and François Dhumes from Auvergne, Léon Barral from Faugères, L’Anglore from Tavel and Clos des Grillons from the Gard. It’s worth taking a peek at the many Vins de France wines which confirm the changing trends in production and consumption taking place today.

  • An unmissable Tour de France

Passion allows us to broaden our horizons. The seller has therefore included the classic regions and elite producers, as well as the more discrete ones. Here’s a closer look at some of the signatures that are sure to make a splash.
