9,000 bottles shine brightly in this wine auction running until 11th October: great Bordeaux wines of course, and treasures from all regions! Everything is ready to stock up for winter: many Bordeaux grands crus 2000, and also a very sharp selection from the four corners of the hexagon. But also tons of ready-to-drink bottles, with attractive prices. A great tasting journey…
The catalogue gathers great names in mature vintages, for some true collectors. Burgundy features names like Montrachet 2006 (DRC), Musigny 1947 (Domaine de Vogüé), Vosne-Romanée Cros Parantoux 1999 (E. Rouget), La Romanée 2000 (Liger-Belair), Chambolle-Musigny les Amoureuses (Mugnier). Without forgetting Grands-Echezeaux 1959 from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 1959.
In Bordeaux, three names stand out: Le Pin 2009, Latour 1982, Haut-Brion 1989 and Lafleur 1982. Cheval Blanc, Ausone, La Gurgue, Rayne Vigneau and La Dominique are a winning combination for the 1947 vintage. But also the gargantuan flasks of Château d’Yquem, that are so rare in sales. Other appellations are just as seducing: from Châteauneuf, with the special cuvée from Henri Bonneau; from the Loire, with the cuvée Silex 2010 from Dagueneau (in magnum); from Alsace, with Riesling Clos Sainte-Hune 2001 from Trimbach; from Champagne, with Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut 2005 from Selosse; from Languedoc, with La Grange des Pères (in magnum); and from Beaujolais, Yvon Métras’s Ultimate Flower. From top wine-producing countries, don’t forget to check out Penfold’s, Gaja, Ornellaia… and also rare whiskies, ports, Marsala and collector’s rums.
Rising stars flirting with excellence
Among the 9,000 bottles for sale, many of them are ready-to-drink, with starting bids at less than €50. Moreover, 250 lots are sold without a reserve price. That’s why it’s urgent for you to look at this sale! Beaujolais illustrates perfectly the rising stars of this sale, with its exceptional cuvées from Morgon, such as Impénitents from Domaine Desvignes 2011, the cuvée 3.14 from Foillard, Cote-du-Py from Burgaud, but also Fleurie Vieilles Vignes from Thévenet and Chiroubles from Damien Coquelet. From the Loire, Chenin lovers will adore Domaine de la Taille aux Loups from Montlouis and Bernaudeau with its cuvée Les Onglés. The Rhone valley is also part of the game with delicious Condrieu wines from Jaboulet and Château Grillet from which mature vintages are available, as well as the fascinating cuvée Luminescence from Guigal. Other red appellations have equally sharp selections: Saint-Joseph Les Oliviers from Domaine Gonon with a several recent vintages, Côte-Rôtie Côte Brune from Domaine Barge, Crozes-Hermitage La Guiraude from Domaine Graillot, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château de Beaucastel. From Alsace, you can find grand cru at small prices from Domaine Deiss: Riesling Rangen de Thann, Clos Saint Urbain Zind-Humbrecht, Pinot Gris Vendanges Tardives Clos Jebsal Zind-Humbrecht, Altenberg from Bergheim, Schoenenbourg, Mambourg. One of our favorites from Provence, highly acclaimed by the specialized press, is Trévallon from Eloi Dürrbach. A must from Côtes du Jura, a selection of the different cuvées from Ganevat. It would be unfortunate for you to miss great Bordeaux wines at affordable prices. The range is vast: from Pessac-Léognan with Smith Haut Lafitte, from Saint-Julien with Léoville Barton, from Saint-Estèphe with Montrose and Calon Ségur, from Saint-Emilion with Troplong-Mondot and Clos Fourtet and from Sauternes with Rieussec. From Burgundy two vintages from Dominique Laurent should hold your attention: Corton Vieilles vines as well as Nuits-Saint-Georges, while Domaine Simon Bize glows with its Aloxe-Corton Le Suchot. A remarkable mature wine from the « New World » (if you dare to say so as it was appreciated in his time by … Napoleon) is Klein Constantia 1996, a fabulous sweet wine from South Africa.
150 great Bordeaux 2000
This sale gathers 150 great Bordeaux wines, from the 2000 vintage. An extraordinary year for the left bank, and also very successful for the best chateaux from the right bank. On the podium, go for the figures from the Médoc (Latour, Margaux, Haut-Brion), but also the classics from Saint-Emilion (Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Pavie, Figeac, La Conseillante). We also love Les Forts de Latour or La Chapelle d’Ausone. And we really advise you to look for outsiders and emerging wines such as Axelle de Valandraud, Château Bellevue and Château d’Aiguilhe.
Go ahead and bid. This auction wine sale ends on 11th October.
