F rench classics in the Bordeaux and Burgundy region have always enticed the vinous world with their hedonistic properties. Powerful but elegant, light in body but erupts with extravagant flavors and aromas. These “contradicting” characters seem to coexist in harmony in the best wines and are not difficult to find in this prestigious collection.

The collector, a very successful businessman who specializes in the real estate and construction sector, has amassed this collection for over a decade. Utilizing the same business sense to pursuit the best bottles he can find in auction houses and wine merchants. It is no secret Bordeaux and Burgundy are favorites. It is evident the collector enjoys and collects the finest vintages such as 1982, 1986, 1990, 2000 and 2005, shown by parcel quantities of First Growths and St. Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé “A” producers. He also fancies the pleasures offered by sleeper vintages like 1979, 1981, 1991, or 1993. Showcasing his comprehensive tastes and thirst for his favorite Bordeaux chateaus.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is marked by diversity and depth in this collection. It is rare to see such an all-encompassing collection of arguably the world’s most sought after wine. Offering connoisseurs a chance to savor the glory of the domaine in different eras, in particular La Tâche, spanning over 4 decades. Not to be missed are 3 Jeroboams of Romanée-Conti 1979, extremely rare in the market and a must have for any serious collector.



本收藏家是一位從事地產及建築行業的成功商人,他把生意頭腦和直覺運用在洋酒採購上,四出到拍賣行和酒商處蒐珍,用超過十年光陰匯成一個出色窖藏。波爾多和布艮地無疑是這位收藏家最愛的產地。他喜歡購入1982、1986、1990、2000、2005等美好年份,來自一級酒莊及聖埃美隆一級A等酒莊(St. Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé “A”)的洋酒數以箱計。他亦熱衷搜羅1979、1981、1991、1993等表現超出預期的年份,可見他兼容並蓄,對心中摯愛的波爾多瑰釀欲罷不能。

窖藏中的羅曼尼康帝酒款繁多,而且擁有非一般的深度。羅曼尼康帝一直深受世人垂青,如此面面俱到的藏酒更是難得一見。其中包括不同葡萄園的出品,La Tâche酒款甚至橫跨逾四十載,可謂鑑藏家的福音。另有三瓶三公升裝的1979年Romanée-Conti,在當今市場上極難尋獲,是收藏家們無不青睞的購藏目標。
