Elite Single Collection Offered in Heritage Auctions’ Fine & Rare Wine Auction

Published on

Sale features more than 1,000 lots from The Lakada Cellar

DALLAS, Texas (March 2, 2020) – An offering of more than 1,000 lots, all from a single private collection, could bring more than $3,000,000 in Heritage Auctions’ Fine & Rare Wine Auction March 6 in Beverly Hills, California.

The collection of 1,060 lots come from The Lakada Cellar – an incredibly well curated collection of only the most coveted labels in the world. In an era when wine auctions sometimes offer a disproportionately large amount of Bordeaux, this sale is a bit of an outlier, with just 48 lots, totaling 133 bottles, of the popular red.

“Having 48 lots of Bordeaux in a sale of this size is a little surreal in today’s marketplace,” Heritage Auctions Fine & Rare Wine Director Frank Martell said. “But don’t misread the quantity of Bordeaux lots as a statement about the quality, because there are some extraordinary vintages in this sale, for consumers and collectors alike.”

The auction also includes 116 bottles of Harlan, 192 bottles of Soldera, 250 bottles of Schrader, 326 bottles of Bruno Giacosa, 359 bottles of DRC, 604 bottles of Gaja and a whopping 666 bottles of Biondi Santi. The selection of Fourrier is not large, but cases of 1990 and 1993 Clos St. Jacques are outstanding finds for the lucky bidders who end up with them.

Provenance is very much the name of the game. Stored in a purpose-built home cellar and also in professional storage, virtually every wine in the collection was purchased on or very near to its release, and then stored in perfect conditions. Many of the imported bottles were purchased in their countries of origin, producer-direct, and added directly to the collection.

“Top to bottom,” Martell said, “this sale is packed with the most highly rated and prized producers in the world.”
