A robust collection of fine wines cannot be created overnight. Instead, it takes years of fastidious work comparing vintages, varieties and vineyards to curate a perfect collection. In their September 7 auction, Sotheby’s offers the wines of a Southern gentleman, who spent 20 years filling his cellars with some of the most unique wines in the world.
Leading the way is a 3-bottle lot of vintage 1989 Pomerol Bordeaux from Chateau Petrus. This complex and exotic wine features powerful tannins and rich spice flavors. Complementing the Petrus in the upper echelon of the collection are two separate lots of Chateau Lafite 1982, which, when last tasted in December 2013, offered bold and savory flavors with a fresh acidity and thick, velvety body.
For white wines, a 1976 Riesling from producer Egon Muller on Germany’s famed Scharzhofberg vineyard is sure to garner attention. Each bottle in 656-lot auction is a unique piece of wine history, preserved for the next generation of wine enthusiasts. The collection of this Southern gentleman is not only exotic, high-value wines. It also features several wines at more approachable prices that still articulate his refined tastes. Interested parties may view the remaining fine wines and register to bid at Sotheby’s today.
