NEW YORK – Donated to the Quebec Fine Arts Museum's Foundation by a sophisticated collector, this consignment features an astounding selection of some of Burgundy’s and Bordeaux's greatest producers.
Highlights include magnificent white offerings from Raveneau, Lafon and Leflaive and pristine lots of DRC from the legendary 1990, 1991 and 1993 vintages. Bordeaux is well represented with bottles of 1990 Lafite, Margaux and Mouton Rothschild as well as a case of 1990 Cheval Blanc in magnum. Not to be overlooked are bottles of 1989 Krug, Clos de Mesnil and multiple lots from Rhone legends Château Rayas and Jean-Louis Chave. The wine had been recently removed from a temperature controlled private cellar.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Museum's expansion with the construction of the Pierre Lassonde Pavilion. Designed by OMA, this new architectural landmark in Quebec City adds 140,000 feet for Modern and contemporary art and international exhibitions. Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec features the National Collection comprising 37,000 works dating from the 17th century to the present day.
