‘No Reserve’ Auction of 2005 Bordeaux

Posted in Uncategorized on June 17, 2010 by AB

March each year sees the massed ranks of the world’s wine trade descending on Bordeaux to pay homage to the neonates of that region’s great Chateaux and estates. Moving onwards we see a well worn path – cries of ‘best, better, great, greatest, classic, timeless…’ followed by prices even higher than the records set by the previous vintage. Such however is life.

Bordeaux’s 2009 vintage is no exception to the rules above and we are currently seeing that year’s unfinished wines released at levels above well proven vintages available for physical delivery. Against this backdrop we are pleased to offer a collection of top 2005 Bordeaux on a ‘no reserve’ basis.

These wines were consigned to sale by a fastidious private seller and are available for delivery on completion of the auctions.

Auctions commence on 25th June and conclude from 9AM onwards on 1st July 2010.
