The Treasury: Finest Wines from a Peerless Collection London, 29 September 2022.

On 29 September 2022 Christie’s will present The Treasury: Finest Wines from a Peerless Collection, an impeccable offering of the best wines from the most sought-after vintages. The cellar, which has been collated by a passionate wine enthusiast over many years, features an extensive selection of Bordeaux from top Châteaux, Château Lafite-Rothschild from sensational vintages such as 1986, 2005, and 2010, and Château Mouton-Rothschild from the monumental 1982 and 2000 vintages, with the latter in magnum.

Château Haut-Brion is offered in cases from landmark vintages such as 1989 and 2015. Across the Gironde, Petrus and Le Pin are well represented, in wooden cases, from top vintages such as 1995, 2000, and 2009.

Burgundy forms the heart of the collection, with famous Domaines appearing in the catalogue; Domaine de la Romanée Conti, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé, Domaine Georges Roumier, and Domaine Leroy. Cases of Richebourg 2009 from Domaine Leroy are particular highlights, as are cases of Bonnes Mares 1971 from Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé and Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1961, which is a jewel for wine collectors.

The selection of wines from Domaine Armand Rousseau is extraordinary, with Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze forming vertical offerings through astonishing vintages.

Further afield, the range of Italian wines on offer in this single-owner sale is remarkable. One of the most treasured verticals of Soldera, Brunello di Montalcino Case Basse appears, with the famous 1988 and 1990 vintages in bottle and magnum. Bruno Giacosa, Giacomo Conterno, Bartolo Mascarello, and Roagna all feature in case quantities.

From Spain, vintages of Vega Sicilia, Unico, and wines from Viñedos Artadi will excite lovers of wines from the Iberian Peninsula.
