Online Wine Auction, December 4th and 5th – Petrus, Anyone?

December 3, 2015 2 comments

I was asked to help promote a live wine auction which will take place online, hosted by the company called Invaluable, so text below is simply an information about this Holiday Auction. Whether you are planning to bid or not, I think it is fun to scroll through the offering of some of the most coveted wines in the world. And by the way, if anyone is still thinking what to get me for the holidays, I’m telling you right now – I’m not very picky, so anything from this collection will do… Deal?

This two day auction, Zachys Early Fall Auction NYC, starts at 9:30 AM EST on December 4th and 5th. We will be auctioning off over 1,800 exceptional lots from an international collection. Collecting wine has been a labor of love for this dedicated connoisseur. He has lived in Germany and Thailand, and has bought selectively in each country. He then painstakingly air-shipped his wines to New York under temperature-controlled conditions. In New York, the wines were stored in a custom-built temperature-controlled home cellar.

Here are a few noteworthy lots from the event:

Lot 245Petrus 2000
Estimated Price: $36,000-$55,000
Quantity: 12, Size: 750ml
Notes: Three lightly scuffed labels, one scuffed label, two 6-pack original wood cases

Lot 334Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2000
Estimated Price: $24,000-$36,000
Quantity: 1, Size: 15L
Notes: This 15L bottle was bought by Mr. Hudson at the 2008 South Beach Wine and Food Festival Auction, at which Baroness de Rothschild was the donor.

Lot 112Chateau Haut Brion 1989
Estimated Price: $12,000-$18,000
Quantity: 12, Size: 750ml
Notes: Producer:Haut Brion. 1.5cm or better, one lightly damp-stained label, one lightly marked label

Finally, don’t forget the two charitable consignments in this sale. The first is Lot 263, a 19th-century shipwrecked bottle of Château Gruaud Larose from the “Marie Therese”, bottled with the ’00 vintage and sold to benefit les Jardins du Monde with an estimated price of $2,000 – $3,000. There is also a section of fine Burgundy consigned by Bob Dickinson, a meticulous and generous collector, sold to benefit Camillus House in Miami (Lots 1259-1309).

Invaluable has a variety of wine and spirits along with collectibles up for auction daily, so you might want to get on the mailing list with them, you never know what you might find.

Happy [Fine Wine] hunting! Cheers!
