Sold 34100€

During this summer period, 2 days of sales were necessary to offer a rich catalogue of 1427 lots of quality wines.

Once again, it was a great opportunity for French and foreign wine lovers to acquire rare and magnificent bottles, mainly from several very knowledgeable private cellars. In addition to splendid local cellars, the wines came from different regions of France such as the Grand-Est, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, not forgetting Paris and Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

In the Bordeaux region, we found the legendary Pomerol vintage, Petrus, in 20 vintages often housed in original wooden cases (6 bottles of 1988 sold for 13640€ - lot 1011, 6 of 1995 for 15500€ - lot 986, 3 of 2012 for 7810€ - lot 1103), as well as cases of 3 magnums of 1995 for 18600€ - lot 1045) and 2007 for 15000€ - 1102), as well as numerous single bottles of great years.

In addition to the many cases of first growths classified in the region, the major references of the Médoc and Libourne regions were represented and accompanied the Caisses Bordeaux-Primeurs (12 from 1989 sold for 11780€ - lot 1001 and 12 from 1996 for 9920€ - lot 1002), Collection Duclot (9 bottles from 2005 for 11900€ - lot 1121) and the exceptional Carré d'As of 8 magnums (sold 34100€ - lot 1000).

Highly prized throughout the world, the best Burgundy wines were the object of all the covetousness with those of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (let us quote 1 bottle of Romanée-Conti from 2015 sold for 22320€ - lot 373, 2 rare bottles of 1990 for 39310€ - lots 300 and 987, 10 bottles of Romanée-Saint-Vivant for 12150€ - lot 400 and 2 Montrachet 2005 for 16120€ - lots 371 and 372, 1 bottle of 2014 for 8310€ - lot 1250) among the 76 that were on display. We should also mention an incomplete set of 7 bottles (Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Echezeaux) for 23560€ - lot 904. Also of note was a bottle of 1999 Musigny from Domaine Georges Roumier which fetched 12400€ - lot 994. We also found the sublime Pinot Noirs from the Domaines Rousseau, Mugnier, Mortet and the Chardonnays from the Domaine d'Auvenay (3 bottles of Criots-Batard-Montrachet 2006 sold for 35835€ - lots 928 to 930) or those from the Domaines Leflaive, Lafon and Coche-Dury (many Corton-Charlemagne and Meursault-Perrières).

Great Rhône wines such as Château Rayas or Ermitage Cathelin de Chave (2 bottles from the 2000 vintage sold for €16865 - lots 398 and 399), exceptional champagnes, fine foreign wines and old spirits (Saint-James 1885 rum) allowed everyone to find what they were looking for at any price!
