The Visionary Singaporean Cellar | Finest & Rarest Wines 6–18 June 2024 • 11:00 AM HKT • Hong Kong

S otheby’s Wine is delighted to continue our Spring season with The Visionary Singaporean Cellar | Finest & Rarest Wines. This online auction, closing on Tuesday 18th June, includes the first chapter in our presentation of The Visionary Singaporean Cellar; a stunning Single Owner consignment that comes from the meticulously curated cellar of one of Singapore’s longest-standing and most esteemed private collectors.

This visionary collector has sat at the heart of Singapore’s wine community for many years, and has gradually built what is one of the most respected and extensive cellars in the Lion City. They are incredibly humble, but for their fellow collectors in Singapore they are no doubt amongst the leading lights in the city, having championed the art of wine collecting and appreciation, and played no small role in building Singapore into the major player in the fine wine market that it is today.

Singapore’s fine wine collectors have much to thank them for, but so too the new generation of great winemakers in Burgundy, Champagne, Spain and further afield. Over the years, this collector has diligently built relationships directly with many of Europe’s most revered producers, merchants, and their agents, and has done much as a disciple to support their new and next-generation winemakers at every opportunity. Indeed, much of the reasoning behind this sale is to generate funds that will be subsequently used to support emerging and talented new winemakers in Burgundy and beyond.

All of the wines offered here were purchased directly on release from their respective producers’ agents, and subsequently kept in flawless conditions within a professional, bonded wine warehouse in Singapore. The provenance is therefore truly impeccable, and the unimpeachable quality of the stock is matched by this collector’s careful record-keeping – many of the original invoices for these wines had been kept, and were seen during inspection by Sotheby’s team.

The consignment offered here is a small snapshot of the wider collection, and yet still reads like a who’s who of the greatest names in the wine world. The revered names of Romanée-Conti, Rousseau, Dujac, Roumier, Liger-Belair, Méo-Camuzet, de Vogüé, Fourrier, Ponsot and many more are all found in abundance. We also get a sense of this collector’s longstanding foresight, via the depth of wines offered from the likes of Bizot, Cécile Tremblay, Mugneret-Gibourg, and aged, older disgorgements from Jacques Selosse – all of which were purchased long before these producers were as popular as they are in the present day. We finish with fireworks from the Ribera del Duero, in the guise of an exceptional offering comprising more than 6 decades of Vega Sicilia’s Unico, offered from the 1940s right up to the 1990s.

This immaculate and revered collection is sure to generate attention and excitement from our bidders all over the world, and we look forward to taking you all on a journey through The Visionary Singaporean Cellar.
