An auction accompanied by a special catalogue started recently and it runs until 23 and 24 November. It contains wines from the 1993-2005 vintages from Domaine Jacky et Liliane Truchot, who retired in 2006. It also includes rarities from other vineyards – Petrus 1986, Rayas 2011, Extra Brut Premier Cru 2008 from Selosse, and Italian wines from 1961 to 2020.
Three Burgundy domains which have disappeared but whose wines appear in this auction
As you probably could have guessed, esteemed domains that no longer operate or where the signature winemaker has since moved on are particularly sought-after and have seen the value of their wines increase.
- Domaine Jacky Truchot ceased trading in 2006 after Jacky and Liliane Truchot Don’t miss out on our selection of bottles from between 1993 and 2005. Stand-out pieces include the Clos-de-la-Roche and Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes from 2005, and Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Sentiers 1996.
- Domaine Henri Jayer also springs to mind. Henri Jayer sadly passed away in 2006 and his vines were taken over by his nephew Emmanuel Rouget. The domain’s Échézeaux 1993, a top Burgundy wine, is included in the auction.
- We also have to mention Domaine René Engel. It was bought in 2006 by François Pinault after the death of Philippe Engel. His old vintages (before 2004), which were vinified by the winemaker are actively searched form as is the case for this Grands-Échézeaux 2002.
Three wines not to miss in this special catalogue
- Our special catalogue contains a few bottles from the famous Domain Joseph Drouhin, known for being one of the first in Burgundy to move towards sustainable agriculture. Make sure you have a look at the Bonnes-Mares 1988, Romanée-Saint-Vivant 1997 and even the Chambertin Clos de Bèze 1998.
- From Bordeaux, there are two bottles of the 1958 Château-Mouton-Rothschild adorned with a label created by the famous surrealist painter Salvador Dali.
- Two bottles of Château-Chalon 1993 by Jean Macle are waiting for you with aromas of nuts and spices.
And not forgetting
- You shouldn’t overlook the fifteen vintages from Petrus, spanning 20 years. We would really recommend the 1986 (and there is a lot made up of 12 bottles of it).
- Have you already tried the 2011 vintage from Château Rayas, both the white and the red?
- Add some bubbles to your life with this Extra Brut Premier Cru 2008 by Selosse. A truly powerful, sophisticated and elegant Champagne.
There is also a whole catalogue formed entirely of Italian wines from 1961 to 2020. You’ll find bottles from Gianfranco Soldera, Franco Cappellano, Bertani, Giovan Battista Burlotto and more.
