Historic Vintages From A Great Bordeaux Cellar 25 June 2021 • 1:30 PM HKT • Hong Kong

S otheby’s Wine will present Historic Vintages from a Great Bordeaux Cellar, a live single-owner auction in Hong Kong on 25 June which brings to the market one of the greatest private collections of Haut-Brion ever to be offered, with vintages spanning over a century. Estimated at HK$10.5 – 15 million/ US$1.4 – 1.9 million, the sale features a total of 466 lots of the finest Bordeaux wines.

“This is one of those rare windows into wine history that mark a lifetime of vinous discovery. When they come your way, it is always breathtaking, as they evoke times remembered, vintages that vary with the weather and social conditions, extraordinary memories of scent and taste, occasions of joy and wonder and the sheer delight of knowing that these bottles, magnums, double magnums, jeroboams and imperials still exist. It reminds me of childhood fairy tales, of treasures slumbering for decades and then miraculously revealed. In this case, the sleeping took place in perfect cellar conditions and these legendary wines emerge from over a century ago, in one instance, to shine a light on what fascinates us all – the mystery of how wines evolve. This collection provides an unrivalled opportunity to follow this thread, through the lens of the First Growths of Bordeaux”


「這個窖藏可謂整個洋酒史的一扇明窗,帶領我們展開醇酒佳釀的畢生探索之旅。這些葡萄珍酩令人憶起昔日的美好年華、因不同天氣及社會環境而充滿變化的年份、令人難以忘懷的香氣與口感、充滿驚喜的快樂時光,以及得悉這些佳釀竟然尚有各種標準裝、1.5 公升裝、3公升裝、5公升裝及6公升裝存於世間的純粹喜悅。它們讓我想起兒時縈繞耳際的童話故事,猶如隱沒數十年後如奇蹟般重見天日的寶藏——有些珍釀誕生於逾一個世紀前,在完美的酒窖條件下靜靜沉睡,如今一併甦醒,向我們展示陳釀過程的華麗蛻變,令人驚艷。本窖藏呈獻多款波爾多一級酒莊的優良出品,印證上述傳奇,機會絕無僅有。」

A Great Bordeaux Cellarby Serena Sutcliffe, M.W.


Cellar Overview
All the wines from this impeccable cellar never left Bordeaux until shipment to Hong Kong for sale. The vast majority of the wines were acquired on release. The red wines from Chateau Haut Brion and Chateau La Mission Haut Brion up to and including the 1983 vintage have been reconditioned at the Chateau in 2020, with smaller number recorked in 1994. All of these wines have been relabeled and placed in new wooden cases at the Chateaux.

Packing and Inspection
All wines were inspected in Bordeaux in March 2020 by Sotheby’s consultant Michael Egan, before being shipped via temperature controlled airfreight to Sotheby’s storage at Crown Wine Cellar’s in Hong Kong.


2020年3月,全部佳釀在波爾多經由蘇富比顧問Michael Egan檢驗,之後在恆溫條件下空運至香港,儲存於皇冠酒窖。

Haut Brion

My overriding impression of this stunning First Growth is that it is the silkiest, most perfumed, most fine-grained of all the legendary top châteaux of Bordeaux. Haut Brion has an inner 'spirituality' to it, a haunting quality that lingers long on the senses. Its unique position on the edge of the city of Bordeaux gives it a micro-climate that fosters ripeness and generosity - there is a velvety warmth to the wine. The extra 'plus' to the property is the family ownership and its long-standing link with three generations of another family, the Delmas, on the managing side, which has provided a totally beneficial continuity to the estate. Haut Brion often blooms early among the First Growths but, unlike human beings, it continues to grow more beautiful in middle age and retains the bone structure and elegance of a very distinguished old age!
