Auction 406 – Nice Prospects!
Dear Wine Lover,
Our last auction for this year lines up one highlight after the other. Let‘s start in the Bordeaux with an impressive collection of large bottles from the 1980s and 90s. There is Trotanoy in Magnum, Jéroboam and Impérial formats, Cheval Blanc in Magnum and double Magnum, Hosanna in Impérial and several vintages of Château Latour in Magnum, just to name a few. In addition, many perfectly preserved original wooden boxes of Bordeaux from younger years come under the hammer.
From Burgundy, there is great quality in enormous quantity: over 40 lots from the Armand Rousseau domain alone, and almost 30 lots from Georges Roumier. Among these are 6 bottles of 2010 of the sought-after Amoureuses – for the next Valentine‘s Day! Let‘s not forget the other star winemakers: Dujac, Grivot, Gros, Lamarche, Leroy, Mortet, Prieuré Roch and Comte Vogüé, or the white rarities of Coche Dury, Comte Lafon and Leflaive.
From Champagne we bring you great and small names – perfect for the festive season. Jacquesson, Cristal, Dom Pérignon or Salon Le Mesnil are just some of the highlights.
The Rhône Valley also has a strong presence with over 80 catalog numbers. The rare wines of
Château Rayas with Fonsalette and Pignon join the great ones of Chapoutier, Jean Louis Chave
and Clos des Papes.
For the cold autumn and winter days we recommend the Piedmontese: Brovia, Burlotto, Bartolo Mascarello, Giuseppe Rinaldi, Gaja and Giacosa. A speciality from Tuscany: four bottles of Ornellaia from the „archivio storico“.
The spirits are particularly well represented in this auction. We offer a collection of Kirsch from the 1950s – 60s and 70s, Armagnac and Cognac. Rum is offered in a remarkable variety, among which a 1976 Extra Vieux Agricole of Montagne Pelée and a Caroni 1982; Rare Whisky comes from all areas of Scotland, especially Ardbeg lovers will be delighted, but also old and rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon..
On Friday, November 25th we will auction delightful everyday treats as well as the odd surprise.
The highlight of the proceedings, our physical auction, will take place on November 26th.
