Auction 404 – Cork Out!
Dear Wine Lover,
In our early summer auction we bring you the treasures of a great Riesling lover , with over 100 lots of fresh, mineral white wines.
More refreshment comes from Champagne: in addition to the great houses, we auction Salon Le Mesnil, Krug Clos de Mesnil, as well as some rare large bottles; among these, we draw your special attention to a Jéroboam Cristal “Orfèvre” 2002. Each bottle is handmade and decorated with a 7m-long brass band dipped in 24-carat gold, a jewel beyond compare.
From Burgundy, in addition to a modest amount of DRC, Roumier and Rousseau, we auction more than a dozen lots from Domaine Arnoux Lachaux, many already vinified by new winemaker-rockstar and Lalou Bize-Leroy disciple Charles Lachaux.
Our focus is also in Bordeaux this time with many perfectly stored original wooden boxes of good easy to drink wines and sought-after rarities, among these several large formats of famous châteaux.
Those who are looking for the Super Tuscans will find them in our auction: Solaia, Tignanello, Ornellaia, Sassicaia in large quantities, but also Masseto, Montevertine’s Le Pergole Torte and the rare Mataracchio await you.
Barca Velha, the insider tip from the Duoro Valley, is Portugal’s big trump card this time. Never before have we had so many bottles of this rare elixir in a single auction. From Napa Valley, there are two bottles of Screaming Eagle, a magnum bottle of Harlan Estate or a Promontory Red for the highest bidder.
Scottish single malts will be auctioned in impressive variety, including several Pure Malt Macallan-Glenlivet from Gordon & McPhail from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s and various versions of Ardbeg, the famous Islay Whiksy.
On Friday, June 10th we will auction delightful everyday treats as well as the odd surprise.
The highlight of the proceedings, our physical auction, will take place on June 11th.
If you are unable to join us in person on the 11th June, we will be happy to take your absentee bids. Bids by e-Mail, post and fax must reach us by June 9th.
Should you need more details, a picture or more information about a specific wine, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be pleased to answer any questions.
Mit herzlichen Grüssen
Marc M. K. Fischer
