Day 1 commences and concludes with magnificent Bordeaux and the largest collection of the auction, amidst an interlude of resplendent Burgundy, and Day 2 spotlights more of the finest Burgundy and two incredible collections with and intermingling of top Bordeaux. Please join us Live Online from Hong Kong September 24th and 25th. Until then, cheers to your health and to great wine!

PARCELS OF 2005 bordeaux and a parade of petrus

Bordeaux is always a good place to start wine collecting as well as commence a sale, and several seasoned consignors agree coming together offer over one hundred lots to get things started on the correct foot with top chateaux from both the Left and Right banks of the Gironde. Hard to believe the profound 2005 vintage is almost sixteen years young already! I have finally started to sample this vintage more regularly, and I have been extremely impressed. This vintage has it all! Move over 2000 IMO!!!

Here to start the celebration are multi-case parcels of the Beausejour Duffau Lagrosse, Duhart Milon, La Conseillante and Pontet Canet as well as cases of Calon Segur, Cheval Blanc, Cos, Ducru, Haut Brion, Figeac, Lafite, Leoville Las Cases and more. We march onto further parcels of 1995 and 1996 Montrose as well as 1986 and 1996 Mouton. A couple of consignors have Petrus on the mind and who can blame them with a 1990 double magnum, 2010 magnums, a six-pack of 2005, a full case of 1982, four cases of 1983, and five, yes 5 cases of the renowned 1990 Petrus in their original wood cases!!!!! The 1983 and 1990 parcels actually come from the same family cellar purchased on release! They were bequeathed to two different family members! The procession of 1990 parcels continues with three cases of 1990 Cheval Blanc (another one of my favorites!!!) and four from 1990 Mouton, and there are additional 1982 bottles from Lafite, Latour and Mouton.

The rollcall of outstanding Bordeaux ready to fill your cellar continues with 1988 d’Yquem, 1961 Lafite, 2000 Lafite magnums, 1989 Lynch Bages magnums and 2003 Margaux double magnums. We encounter dizzying heights of Bordeaux delight with dueling fifty-three bottle verticals of both Lafite and Margaux arching over the 1958 through 2010 vintages. We get a little help from our friends outside of Bordeaux with cases of 1991 Guigal La Landonne and La Mouline as well as 1972 La Tache, 2000 Romanee Conti and 2002 Screaming Eagle, but make no mistake about it, this is an incredible opening act of some of the finest and rarest Bordeaux! Bravo!!! All wines properly stored.
