In 2018, will your cellar be of a classic or rather disruptive profile? Whatever your choice, we have the right wines for you. In this auction you will find the cream of the crop in each key appellation, but also a few hidden gems that are only waiting for you to be revealed in broad daylight.
This sale has a dazzling selection of mature Bordeaux vintages including the most prestigious names like Lafite, Yquem, Angelus, Cheval-Blanc and Ausone. Mouton is present with more than 20 vintages. We are lucky to access superb cellars with dream wines such as Cos d’Estournel, Montrose, Pichon Lalande or Pontet Canet. If you like sweet and rare wines, then opt for a Crème de Tete from Château Gilette in 1953, 1961 or 1978…
A rare mixed-case of 2010 Romanée-Conti is making the headling but all the other icons are present: the Meursault of Coche-Dury, the Chambolle-Musigny of Roumier or Chambertins and Clos de Bèze by Armand Rousseau, hard to choose. Dig the catalog well and you will find nuggets like the Chambolle-Musigny of Jean-Jacques Confuron as well as several bottles of d’Auvenay.
Here the choice is vast but incredibly qualitative. The most emblematic names are all present in various vintages: Château Rayas, Guigal, Thierry Germain, Jean-Louis Chave, Beaucastel, Jamet, Auguste Clape. Don’t stay too much in your confort zone and head to Gigondas where you’ll find top and very reasonably-prices wines!
Note that we have rarely seen so many wines from Arbois at auction (Puffeney, Tissot, Overnoy); You will also be able to build a vertical of Clos Sainte-Hune (Trimbach), discover great signatures from the Languedoc-Roussillon (Grange des Peres, Peyre Rose, Clos des Fées, Gauby). Without forgetting to make a detour by the finest producers of the world: Sassicaia, Opus One, Vega Sicilia, Pingus, Clos Erasmus, Gaja, Voerzio…
Small novelty this year, the choice is becoming so vast that we have had to split the auction over two days. Get ready for last minute bids on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th January.
We wish you a beautiful 2018, excellent wines and beautiful auctions!
See all wines auctioned until 17th & 18th January!
