I n Autumn, Sotheby’s Hong Kong will present The Marvellous Leroy Collection, one of the most comprehensive Leroy collections Sotheby’s has offered, comprising of 313 lots and estimated at HKD21 million/ USD2.7 million.
This extraordinary offering of Leroy is amassed over 3 decades of dedicated and meticulous collecting through reputable European and Hong Kong wine merchants and auction houses. The wine collector, an avid wine lover, is one of the earliest advocates of Madam Lalou Bize Leroy in Asia. The sale offers a great range of wines from Domaine Leroy, Maison Leroy, and Domaine d’Auvenay. Highlights include 131 lots of Domaine Leroy, of which 43 lots are from the famed Musigny, 24 lots from Domaine d’Auvenay including the first vintage 1989 Puligny Montrachet Folatières, and Musigny from Roumier and Mugnier.
今秋，香港蘇富比欣呈 Leroy 特選窖藏珍釀。這是蘇富比史上最全面的 Leroy名莊佳酩拍賣，313項拍品總值2,100萬港元 / 270萬美元。
經過三十多年的不懈努力和精挑細選，本窖藏主人從信譽優良的歐洲和香港酒商及拍賣行手上，蒐集到數量浩繁的 Leroy 美酒。藏主愛酒，早在亞洲大部分人尚未得聞拉魯．比茲．勒樺夫人（Lalou Bize-Leroy）大名時，就對她推崇不已。是次拍賣誠獻年份涵蓋廣博、酒款眾多的 Domaine Leroy、Maison Leroy 和 Domaine d’Auvenay 佳釀。最使人矚目的當屬 Domaine Leroy 的131項拍品，其中43項是知名的 Musigny 產區酒款；另有24項 Domaine d’Auvenay 佳釀，包括酒莊第一年出產的1989年 Puligny Montrachet Folatières；以及來自 Roumier 和 Mugnier 兩大酒莊的 Musigny。
All the fabulous Domaine Leroy Grands Crus from the Côte de Nuits are here, vying for your attention in a phenomenal range of vintages. You may wish to keep some further, as they age with splendour, but I would be tempted to start ‘comparing and contrasting’ at the earliest possible moment.
This marvellous collection of wines was put together by a private Asian collector, who amassed this cellar over 3 decades. He is an avid wine lover and one of the earliest collectors of Leroy in Asia.
The wine collector purchased wines on release from European and Hong Kong wine merchants, and through reputable auction houses. Part of a much larger collection.
The wines have been stored in a professional cellar in Hong Kong, with consistent cold and humid cellar conditions, perfect for long-term ageing of fine wine.
Inspection and Shipping
All wines are inspected by Sotheby’s Hong Kong Specialists in Crown Wine Cellars Hong Kong.
Lalou Bize-Leroy is a force to be reckoned with in Burgundy. Brought up in wine, she developed firm principles and equally firm convictions. For her, reducing yields is a religion and biodynamic viticultural methods the route to quality and longevity. No destemming and long vattings add to the almost essence-like intensity of the wines. Their deep, emphatic style is a reflection of the commitment and personality of Lalou Bize-Leroy. These wines hardly seem to age - they stay suspended in time. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
拉魯．比茲．勒樺（Lalou Bize-Leroy）絕對是布艮地（Burgundy）內的一股不可小覷的勢力。自小受葡萄酒感染的她，長大後建立起堅定不移的原則和信念。對她而言，減低生產量是釀酒的金科玉律，而生物動力葡萄種植法(Biodynamic Viticultural Method)則是追求質素和恆久的不二法門。不為葡萄去莖及長時間浸泡葡萄，更令葡萄酒濃郁得近乎濃縮精華，這種深邃鮮明的風格，活脫脫就是拉魯．比茲．勒樺的個性和精神的反映。此酒不囿於時間長短，罕有陳年。施慧娜 (葡萄酒大師 M.W.)
