S otheby’s Hong Kong is delighted to open our Summer Wine & Spirits sales with a truly mind-blowing Single Owner collection: The Immaculate Leroy Cellar | Flawless Provenance. This is one of the most impressive collections of Domaines Leroy and d’Auvenay to be offered in recent years. What’s more, the provenance is quite simply unimpeachable. It is a privilege to offer this selection of iconic wines from these 2 domaines in such glorious condition, with ironclad provenance and history. A surefire reason for collectors to bid extremely confidently across the incredible array of lots offered here.
All of the wines in this Single Owner sale were purchased directly from Domaine Leroy and d’Auvenay upon release in Europe, whereupon they were shipped directly to Hong Kong via temperature control and kept in professional storage, never being removed, opened or even moved before inspection by Sotheby’s team of Specialists. The Domaine d’Auvenay and Leroy wines in this collection are extremely notable for being offered in the rare format of 3-bottle Original Wooden Cases from the Domaine, all of which were sealed prior to Sotheby’s taking custody of the wines.
This extremely focused sale comprises just 107 lots of the very best wines from these luminary domaines. Alongside 54 lots from Leroy and 34 lots from d’Auvenay, we are also delighted to present aged icons from DRC, beautiful 2018 and 2019s from Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, and finally closing with a handful of stunning Original Wooden Cases from Chassagne icon Lamy-Caillat.
The Immaculate Leroy Cellar | Flawless Provenance will be open for bidding online until Friday 30th June, at which points the lots will close at 30 seconds intervals online from 2PM HKT.
香港蘇富比欣呈「非凡源流 | Leroy 名釀窖藏」，為夏季洋酒及烈酒拍賣拉開序幕。本窖藏匯聚了近年市場上少見的 Leroy 和 d’Auvenay 酒莊佳釀，這些洋酒經過精心嚴選，擁有無懈可擊的來源和歷史，而且保存狀況極佳，是眾藏家選購頂尖瑰釀的不二良機。
此單一藏家窖藏裡的洋酒於推出歐洲時直接購自 Leroy 和 d’Auvenay 酒莊，然後直接運抵香港，在蘇富比專家團隊檢視前，洋酒一直儲存在專業恆溫設施內，從未被搬動或打開。最值得留意的是，本窖藏的 Leroy 和 d’Auvenay 佳釀均以3瓶為單位、裝載於原裝木箱裡出售，所有木箱在蘇富比檢視前均為密封。
這次拍賣總共包含107項拍品，主題明確集中，除了主力呈獻的54項 Leroy 和 34項 d’Auvenay 外，我們還為藏家帶來羅曼尼康帝的經典陳釀、Arnoux-Lachaux 的2018和2019年美酒，最後再以 Chassagne 產區的代表 Lamy-Caillat 酒莊作結，全部洋酒皆保存在原裝箱內，品質上佳。
「非凡源流 | Leroy 名釀窖藏」網上拍賣將開放競投至6月30日（星期五），拍品的競投時段將於當日下午2時起，每三十秒順序結束一項。
