BEVERLY HILLS, CA.-
A full wood case of 1966 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Conti is estimated to bring $85,000+as the highlight lot from the superb collection of an American financier in the Heritage
and Greg Martin Auctions joint Signature® Wine Auction, Thursday, June 16, at the Heritage Beverly Hills offices, 9478 West Olympic Blvd.
The auction will be simulcast from the Heritage Beverly Hills office on June 16 at 6 p.m., PST to the Island Shangri-La Hotel in Hong Kong, June 17 at 9 a.m. HKT.
“This special collaboration brings together resources from both Heritage and Greg Martin for a very deep summer auction that should excite discerning wine connoisseurs,” said Frank Martell, Director of Fine Wines at Heritage, “particularly those of France’s most celebrated wine estates: Château Latour, Château Margaux, and Château Lafite Rothschild.”
In particular, aficionados of Château Lafite Rothschild will find reason to celebrate the offerings in the auction, with a seldom seen 1949 Château Lafite Rothschild, in desirable 2.5 Liter “Pot Gascogne” format, perhaps topping the list with a $5,500+ estimate. A single bottle of 1891 Château Lafite Rothschild, originally dating to the historic Heublein auctions in 1980, is also sure to motivate collectors with its unimpeachable provenance. It is estimated at $2,400+.
Among astute oenophiles 2000 Château Mouton Rothschild is a much coveted name and a 12-bottle lot (estimate: $11,000+) and 6 Liter imperial (estimate: $9,000+) of the esteemed vintage should command bids to equal that regard when they come on the block. Likewise, several lots of 2000 Château Petrus, with full case quantities (estimate: $37,500+), should inspire the palates and the bids of collectors.
An extremely rare bottle of 1937 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Conti (estimate: $10,000+) provides for one of the auction’s most alluring and intriguing lots, while a 12-bottle lot of 1989 La Mission Haut-Brion (estimate: $9,000+), a wine that has developed a devoted following in the 20+ years since its vintage, will find a new home when it comes up for auction as part of the June 16 event.
