Starting 10th April – Our ‘Easter’ Auction

Posted in Uncategorized on April 1, 2012 by AB

Outstanding Easter Sale (commencing 10th April) features some superb wines from private collections which have been extremely well looked after, a wide selection of top notch wines that have lain untouched since purchase at The Wine Society and some very rare and highly sought after Australian Icons.

Highlights include several vintages of Chateau Lafite and Chateau Margaux, a range of mature Rhones from Guigal and Rostaing, pristine single bottle lots of all the First Growths, and a number of large format bottles from Torbreck that are incredibly hard to find. There are wines to suit all tastes and budgets in this sale, with lots from the 1940’s right through to the late 2000’s.

The majority of the lots have been in professional storage since release from the producer, either at London City Bond’s dedicated warehouse or at The Wine Society’s facility in Hertfordshire. Stock up for the summer with wines from Fox Creek, Henschke, Two hands, Kay Brothers, Penfolds, St Hallett and Elderton Estate, all with good bottle age.

Some rare Burgundies from Domaine de La Romanee Conti, Armand Rousseau, Vincent Giradin and Leflaive will all go under the hammer, along with some fine and rare champagnes from Dom Perignon, Bollinger, Pommery, Perrier Jouet and Charles Heidsieck.

Lots of Bordeaux for the collector. Alongside the first growths there are OWC lots of all sorts of Chateaux including Gruaud Larose, Pichon Longueville, Grand Puy Lacoste and many others. We also have a good range of mature second wines including Forts de Latour, Bahans Haut Brion, Pavillon Rouge and Grange Neuve de Figeac.

Those with a sweeter tooth are also well catered for with some lovely Sauternes from Rieussec, Coutet, Bastor Lamontagne, and Guiraud alongside some excellent Tokaji.
