This end of the year 2021 was once again going to be exceptional with 3 days of sales of superb quality wines from very fine French private cellars.

On December 27, 800 lots, mainly from a large family cellar, were offered to a growing number of amateurs and collectors. Some nuggets to be noted, such as the numerous bottles of Bordeaux First Growths in the legendary vintages of 1945 (1 bottle of Mouton Rothschild sold for 12650€ - lot 406), 1961, 1982, 1990 and 2000. Let's mention 12 Lafite Rothschild 1982 sold for 37800€ - lot 218, 12 Mouton Rothschild 1982 for 17350€ - lot 232, 6 Latour 1982 for 12400€ - lot 222, 12 Haut-Brion 1989 for 31000€ - lot 247, 12 Château La Mission Haut-Brion 1989 for 19850€ - lot 251, Also offered in rare jeroboams (Château Lafite 1982 for 34700€ - lot 216 and Haut Haut-Brion 1989 for 35959€ - lot 246), or 12 Mouton Rothschild 2000 for 28500€ (lot 418) surrounding multiple lots of Petrus often in cases.

The 28th and 29th of December were not to be outdone with a strong representation of the mythical vintages of Burgundy. From the incomparable 1999 vintage, let's mention 1 set of 12 bottles of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti sold for 102300€ (lot 1200), 1 other of 16 bottles of the 2010 vintage (sold for 111600€ - lot 2000) but also the rare Corton-Charlemagne of Coche-Dury (27800€ for 6 bottles of 2012 (lots 1204 and 1205) or 31000€ for as many of 2009 (lots 1082 and 1083). The greatest Burgundy estates were well represented with Armand Rousseau, Georges Roumier (1 bottle of Musigny 2004 for 9670€ - lot 891) or multiple vintages of Chambolle-Musigny les Amoureuses, but also Henri Jayer (1 bottle Vosne-Romanée Cros Parantoux 1993 for 13765€ - lot 1340), Méo-Camuzet, Roulot, Prieuré-Roch, Raveneau, Comtes Lafon...) Let's also mention Domaine de la Grange des Pères with 1 bottle of the 1992 vintage which obtained 12150€ - lot 1023.

Once again, the greatest Bordeaux wines were on the programme with numerous cases of Petrus (6 bottles of 1982 sold for 24800€ - lot 240, 5 of 1989 for 22950€ - lot 267, 6 of 1990 for 24800€ - lot 467, 4 of 2000 for 21100€ - lot 470, 12 bottles of 2000 sold for 74400€ - lot 1152, 6 of the same vintage for 34700€ - lot 1230 or for the most greedy 6 magnums of 2001 for 42150€ - lot 1153) Bordeaux-primeur cases (24 bottles 2000 for 57000€ lots 1102 and 1103, 1 case of 1990 for 14900€ - lot 273) and Duclot and superb Sauternes which made the last days of 2021 shine without forgetting a "Carré d'As révisité" mixed lot of 16 bottles 2000 sold for 22300€ - lot 276.

Chartreuses, rums (including 1 bottle of Chartreuse Jaune from the 1904-1930 Tarragona period for €11285 - lot 1219), whiskies and great foreign wines also accompanied these three sales. The rare yellow wines of Pierre Overnoy (40020€ for all the yellow wines - lots 1177 to 1191) and the marvellous collection of rare and prestigious cognacs (lots 2203 to 2251) built up over time, including 1 bottle of Cognac Premier Grand Cru "Cuvée 1888" for 4835€ - lot 1001.
