Cellar of a Long-standing Clientby Serena Sutcliffe, M.W.



It is especially rewarding for us at Sotheby’s when a valued and long-standing client, who has bought from us at many of our most important auctions, turns to us again when he decides to sell some of his acquisitions.

Such collectors have an unerring feel for absolute top quality, and this is reflected in every wine in this sale. Whether from France, Italy, Spain or California, if it is a wine made to the highest possible standard, from stunning terroir exploited to its maximum potential, then it has a place in this auction. These wines have earned their position at the pinnacle of vinous achievement. We wander from Champagne to Burgundy, the Rhône and then over to Bordeaux; Gallic Glory is the order of the day. From Dom Pérignon Rosé to Krug, DRC to de Vogüé, the Gems of Guigal and then, finally, on to a lineup of First Growths, the choice is yours, should it be an experience of discovery or re-acquaintance.

We have been lucky enough to follow the creation and meteoric rise of Ornellaia, the great Tuscan oenological ornament, and we are delighted to bring to you here an amazing vertical lineup of vintages from Ornellaia’s Archivio Storico, presenting the full story of style and maturity.

This is a collection of great promise that delivers on every possible count. It is sure to bring great pleasure to all who add these wines to their own cellars.

All wines in this consignment were purchased from Sotheby’s auctions in London, New York and Hong Kong. Details of exact sales are noted where available.
