On 12-13 October, Sotheby’s Wine is delighted to open its fall season in New York with a momentous two-day sale, Finest & Rarest Wines, Featuring The Macallan 1926, Sir Peter Blake, with a pre-sale low estimate in excess of $3.9 million, comprising 1150 lots of the most prized wines and spirits from the most sought-after producers.
Burgundy figures prominently, including the flagship wines in historic vintages from DRC, Rousseau, Roumier, Dujac, Leroy, Liger-Belair, Coche-Dury, and Raveneau. Specific highlights include three DRC Assortments (1993, 1995, and 1996), a pristine 6-bottle lot of the mythical 1990 DRC Romanée-Conti, Coche-Dury’s coveted Corton-Charlemagne across five top vintages, and Raveneau Les Clos in rarely seen large format.
In addition, bidders will delight in the opportunity to acquire classic Bordeaux from the landmark vintages, including important quantities of 1982 Lafite, 1982 Mouton, 2000 Mouton, 2000 Margaux, and 2000 Ausone, as well as an impeccably stored 12-bottle lot of 1989 Petrus.
Finally, on Saturday, buyers will have the unique opportunity to bid on a bottle of the legendary Macallan 1926, 60 Years Old, Sir Peter Blake (est. $700,000 $1.2 million), one of only 12 bottles produced, and the highest estimate ever placed on a bottle of wine or whisky at Sotheby’s.
