Auction introduction: This single-owner sale is truly an exceptional private collection featuring an extensive array of exceedingly rare Burgundy from the regions finest Domaines. The provenance and condition of the wines is first-class. Wines were bought on release and have been stored in the impeccable conditions at Berry Bros & Rudd’s bonded storage facility in the U.K. The owner of this collection has meticulously accumulated the very best Burgundies, wines that are stunning examples of white and red Burgundy. The sale represents a “thinning out” of the vendor’s collection, who is delighted to be sharing vinous treasures with Burgundy aficionados. Domaines that feature reads like a who’s who of the finest exponents from the Côte d’Or; Anne Gros, Rousseau, Bouchard, Clos de Tart, de Vogüé, Dujac, Lamarche, Roumier, Mugnier, Grivot, Leroy, de Montille, Ponsot, Engel, Groffier, Cathiard, Liger-Belair, Vougeraie, Ente, Lafon, Boillot, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey and more. Of many highlights in the collection are wines from Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey - stunning wines that do not appear often in the secondary market, so please take note of these superlative white Burgundies. The majority of the offering is red Burgundy and of many highlights, I would bring attention to the fantastic wines from Dujac. Also featured are outstanding wines from Roumier, exceedingly rare Musigny from Mugnier, de Vogüé and Vougeraie, increasingly rare and sought-after wines from René Engel and the legendary 2004 vintage from Leroy, when Lalou Bize-Leroy declassified her top wines to village level. The range of high quality vintages of Burgundy are stunning, with stellar years such 1999, 2002, 2005, 2009, 2010, 2015, 2016 and 2017 represented. The combination of the high quality of the Domaines, outstanding vintages, impeccable provenance having been bought on release, along with professional storage history makes this sale a unique opportunity to acquire the world’s most sought-after Burgundy.
