"March On"


Spring is almost in the air, depending on where you’re living these days, and Acker is back with another, terrific, two-day auction in Delaware on March 11th and 12th! We’ve been pushing as hard as we can to keep delivering the finest and rarest wines to you, and we are on track to sell US$40 million in just the first quarter of the year! This sale, like every other, is brimming with nothing but the best, but four collections fit our featured forecast! We’re ready to warm things up on the auction block on night one in Lots 177-304, with some glorious, California wine sunshine from the likes of Colgin, Dunn, Screaming Eagle, and more! We’ve seen the Golden Phoenix grace these pages time and time again over the last few months, but he is reincarnated once more, like a thunderbolt from the hands of Zeus in Lots 305-406! Top Bordeaux is here in quantity and quality with prestigious parcels and more from Cheval Blanc, La Mission, Lafleur, Haut Brion, and Latour, before Domaine Leflaive, Krug, and Vega Sicilia wash it all down. Lots 751-802 offer up a unique opportunity as we finely focus on the two champions of Champagne’s Blanc de Blancs style: Salon and Delamotte, which come to us courtesy of a passionate, Champagne lover, who is the original owner of these wines and has kept them all professionally stored in London since purchase, making this selection as close to buying directly from the Champagne house! We must shine the spotlight on Lot 802, a super-lot of majestic proportions, boasting a luxurious lunch or dinner for six at the House of Salon, along with magnum cases of recently disgorged 1970 and 1983 Delamotte Collection, in addition to magnum cases of 2002, 2004, and 2006 Salon. We close out the sale with the last, but certainly not the least, consignor of the auction, as we bring you the Precise Collection of a Prominent Surgeon in Lots 806-1225! A great team player, he is always helping others along the way and will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this sale to charity, including a major charity that he founded, which provides free sports medicine care to inner city youth. We take a bounce on Bordeaux, led by cases of Cheval, Montrose, and more before vintage pairings from Lafite, Las Cases, and Margaux keep us going. DRC dominates the court before Lady Leroy looms large with beautiful bottles of Boudots and more. We pause for one bottle of 1978 Henri Jayer Echezeaux, before more of this ridiculous roster keep the game afloat, as Meo-Camuzet Cros Parantoux, and more keep spirits high. The Rhone then romps with the biggest names, as Guigal La Las, 1978 Chave and La Chapelle champion Syrah, before Krug magnums refresh us for iconic Italians like 2000 Monfortino and a more than 80 lots of California greatness from all the stars. We cannot wait to summon spring and see all these fabulous wines find roots in new homes at this stunning sale in Delaware on Thursday, March 11th and Friday, March 12th.
