Wine-producing countries from around the world will be represented in Sotheby’s upcoming New York wine sale. The auction features rare bottles from France, Italy, Spain, and the United States. Winemaking techniques and location define the quality of the available wines. For example, France uses a more traditional method of aging while Italy is recognized for using grapes that are native to southern Europe. Showcased in the auction are 12 bottles of 2009 Petrus. This rare French wine is full-bodied with aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate, and hazelnut. It has an intense plum color. These bottles are expected to hold for 25 years or longer.
12 bottles of 2000 Château Mouton Rothschild will be available as well. Also from France, these wines have a purple-violet color that is nearly black. The dominant aromas are redcurrant, cherry liqueur, and bilberry with slight floral hints of lily, violet, and vanilla. This wine reaches peak maturity between 18 and 60 years after the vintage.
Screaming Eagle, produced in California, is also represented in Sotheby’s Finest and Rarest Wines Auction with three bottles of 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. This full-bodied wine has a fragrance of blackcurrant liqueur, licorice, acacia flowers, and graphite with a hint of new oak. Cabernet Sauvignon is known as one of the best aging wines available: these bottles will keep for seven to 10 years. View the full collection of wines and register to bid at Sotheby’s.
