The 114 bottle romanee-conti superlot 1992-2010 (114 bts)

With an annual production of about 5,000 bottles, Romanee-Conti is one of the rarest and most desirable wines in the world. To find 114 bottles in one lot is unheard of and as such, represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire an instant library of this Burgundy icon All bottles were acquired by a private collector from excellent UK trade sources and recently shipped from London to Sotheby's Hong Kong warehouse via temperature controlled reefer containe. This is undoubtedly the most exciting Superlot we have ever sold, anywhere, and it is entirely composed of the wine that many would regard as the greatest in the world, Romanee-Conti. It is difficult to imagine such a treasure trove of such a rare, and superlative, wine, but exist it does and here it is in Hong Kong. Romanee-Conti hardly needs any introduction. However, many would only know it as a name, as the incredibly small production (average annual production 450 cases) precludes widespread sampling. Existing as a separate entity since 1584, this plot of a mere 1.81 hectares of brown, chalky soil, with clay and iron content, produces wines of such scent and finesse, length, breed and sheer beauty that they almost defy description. We continue to try, evoking truffles, damp earth, ethereal texture, depth and complexity. This precious piece of land is managed with consummate skill and extreme care, on biodynamic principles and always with the aim of obtaining perfect grape ripeness, whatever the risk. Initially slow to show its full impact, Romanee-Conti keeps its counsel for years, gradually exploding into its great, hedonistic, full-blown intensity. Under normal circumstances, it would be difficult for anyone to follow this magical process, but the buyer of this Romanee-Conti Superlot can do just this. With 6 bottles of each vintage from 1992 to 2010, bottles can be tried at various stages of their life, an intoxicating experience. This period of time encompasses a great epoch for Burgundy, with a string of very fine vintages of which Romanee-Conti took full advantage. I follow each vintage from its youth, when the promise of glory is mega-evident, but to be able to reach for a bottle at every moment of its maturity would be a treat of the highest order. The sourcing of these wines was impeccable, curated by a Master of Wine at all stages of its acquisition. I once wrote that, if a wine could have a soul, it would be Romanee-Conti. I still believe that and only wish that I could 'soul-search' on a more frequent basis! Serena Sutcliffe M.W.

Serena Sutcliffe, MW 1992 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Quite an earthy nose. Meaty and even 'charred'. A touch of roast on the taste. Good acidity. Just a touch dry at the end with some gaminess. This is now mature, soft and ready. Slips down in silky fashion. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 1993 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 3600 Dismiss all thoughts of Bordeaux when you consider the Burgundy 1993s - and, as always, think of DRC as in a class of its own.-- This is a DRC vintage of substance and delight, for the most part now approaching maturity, especially in bottle, although you could keep large formats for longer. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 1993 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Last tasted in Methuselah. Wonderful nose of wild herbs on the 'garrigues'. The taste gets fuller and fuller in the glass, very much due to the large format bottle, I feel. A superb vintage and a powerful wine. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 1994 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 4210 The vintage was not uniformly good throughout Burgundy, but the Domaine makes its own rules and they waited until the sun returned on 20 September before planning the harvest.-- As a result, there is none of the 'severity' you sometimes see in this vintage and the beautiful scents you find in each 'climat' are all there.-- In my view, this is a DRC year, across the board, that you can now broach with pleasure. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 1994 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note A wonderful, breedy scent leads into a taste that just expands on the palate, lingering and beguiling. We decided against decanting and poured it into big Riedel Burgundy 'ballons' and this suited the wine perfectly. There is something briary, smoky and mysterious about this wine. It has now opened out in a silky smooth way. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 1995 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 5397 Late picking at the Domaine in this vintage did the trick and the wines have real opulence, attractive plumpness and all the myriad flavours you expect from each precious vineyard.-- I have particularly noticed tastes of black cherry jam of the kind that you get in the best Swiss hostelries! Serena Sutcliffe, MW 1995 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note A piercingly beautiful scent that is pure Romanee Conti. Violets, liquorice, both wild cherries (griottes) and black cherries - the kind you get in Swiss jam. Multi-layered, many splendoured taste. Super-charged red and black fruit, a touch of vanilla and a real dollop of concentrated intensity. Above all, the supreme intensity of Romanee Conti. This is breed "personified" in a wine. Will keep for longer than anyone reading this. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 1996 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 6101 This great, beautifully defined vintage has a particular characteristic that is, in fact, found all over France this year - a remarkable concentration of both sugar and acidity, due to the combination of hot days and cold nights, a North wind and dryness.-- This immediately confers strong personality and longevity to the wines.-- The Domaine harvested as late as possible to exploit this exciting marriage of high natural degrees (more than 13 degrees in Romanee Conti and La Tache) and high acidity, giving high-wire balance to the wines.-- Romanee Conti was picked on the glorious morning of 1st October and the harvest finished on 3rd October with La Tache.-- A luminous vintage with wines of great length and precision. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 1996 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note The total experience in this great vintage. The bouquet has everything. Violets, peat, raspberries. A mind-blasting, complete taste. A huge mouthful of wild cherries with plummy fruit and liquorice, all backed up by terrific tannin and ace acidity. Peat and black cherries on the finish. Monumental wine - a pillar of the vinous century in Burgundy. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 1997 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 4814 In autumn 1997, Aubert de Villaine said: 'The grapes are perhaps the most perfect we have picked these last few years, real jewels...', but sadly, there were not many of them as 1997 stands as the lowest yielding vintage of the preceding ten years.-- Extremes of cold, humidity and finally fabulous heat ensured that only the hardiest grapes survived and prospered and the result is wines that show purity of fruit, finesse and clear vineyard characteristics.-- The latter quality always makes for riveting comparisons between the Domaine 'climats', one of my favourite pursuits in the whole wine world. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 1997 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Heavenly "sweet", ripe nose. Deeply scented projection. A mouthful of best Burgundian terroir, untrammelled fruit and multi-dimensional flavour. This is a Romanee-Conti that will turn gamey - I am convinced it will be the grouse wine "par excellence" in a few years' time. Glorious rich, gummy, thick yet elegant texture. Renoir in the glass! Unfolds endlessly. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 1998 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 5064 In December 2000, Aubert de Villaine wrote: "Never have I seen a more slowly evolving vintage but we were optimistic - the colours are beautiful, the aromas are enticing and there is lovely fruit with the eyes yet to open." Aubert de Villaine had reason to be optimistic about this profound, complex vintage at the Domaine. -The cause of the 'slow start' was the prolonged 'elevage', with malolactic fermentation taking up to 12 months as opposed to the usual 3-6 months. -Only a single racking took place just before June 2000 and this was done by hand, cask by cask, with the wines falling quite naturally bright and clear. -This is another manifestation of the Domaine's Haute Couture approach. -Will the wines turn out like the 1952s?- That is a tall order, but it is not inconceivable. - Serena Sutcliffe, MW 1998 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note That extra special "elan" on the nose that always distinguishes Romanee-Conti from the rest. A real cherry kernel flavour, deep and persistent. The filigree, lacy texture of the climat. A tight, concentrated finish denotes the potential longevity, plus a mineral sign-off. Serena Sutcliffe, MW BOTTLES PRODUCED: 6917 We are talking about a very grand vintage here, one of the greatest in my lifetime for red Burgundy.-- As expected, the Domaine took full advantage of nature's gifts and rolled out an array of stupendous wines that, twelve years later, are just 'peeping above the parapet'.-- Perfect ripeness on old vines is a magic recipe and, not surprisingly, the Domaine took full advantage of this wonderful raw material.-- Concentrated sugar has given the wines a voluptuous character, with natural glycerol vying with finesse and elegance, all finally combining to create sheer excitement at every level. Serena Sutcliffe, MW Aubert de Villaine was moved to say:- 'We observed this year the almost miraculous combination of high sugar contents and consequent high degrees of alcohol, good acidity from very concentrated berries and perfect health of the grapes.-- It is interesting to underline that the combination of these three factors in the same harvest only occurs very, very rarely.' 1999 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note La Tache may have the grandeur and the flamboyance in this vintage, but Romanee-Conti has the balance, the breed and the endless finish. DRC really did attain perfection this year, for which they can be justifiably proud, while we can be eternally grateful. It is the power and the nobility of bouquet and taste that really set these wines apart in 1999 and Romanee-Conti itself epitomises these qualities. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2000 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 6286 Some erroneously dismiss the 2000s as rather light, but they are opening out to be truly delectable. The DRC wines are, of course, imposing at every level with ripe tannins and considerable charm. The high percentage of older vines, with an average age of 52 years for Romanee-Conti, lies at the heart of the magical quality here. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2000 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note The Millennium vintage exploded on to the horizon with this beautifully balanced wine, so ripe and with such fresh acidity - those wonderful old vines immensely contributed here. Opulent, complex, refined and intricate, with a huge dollop of 2000 charm. It lingers on the palate in a very filigree, lacy way. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2001 VINTAGE "These are classic 'vins de garde', powerful, beautifully structured, but with both elegance and a seductive quality." Aubert de Villaine BOTTLES PRODUCED: 6407 The weather produced everything in 2001, from extremes of heat and glorious weather to storms and even cold. Meticulous selection was the secret here and the result is tremendous. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2001 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note At first, a slightly reticent, tremendously breedy Romanee-Conti nose. Then, as it meets the air, high octane wild strawberries nose of utter purity. The scent permeates the whole taste. Amazing flavour of sugared fraises de bois which explodes onto the palate. Such finesse of texture. Loganberries. Tremendous health. This is wine like no other - it knows no rivals. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2002 VINTAGE "For us, they are not wines of charm, they are wines of the future. A beautiful vintage." Aubert de Villaine. BOTTLES PRODUCED: 5548 One can see why Aubert said this - he was anxious that these perfectly lovely wines should not be drunk too young! Their fruity flamboyance might seduce their lucky owners into pulling corks too soon, thus depriving themselves of some gorgeous scents and flavours that emerge with bottle age. The glorious ripeness has real, architectural structure underneath - 2002 had a lower production at the Domaine than both 2001 and 2000. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2002 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Without a doubt, this is the Domaine's top wine in this vintage, packing more depth into it than the very attractive La Tache. It is the spiciness together with the breed that win the day, with underlying mineral elements and structure that I think will take it further into the future than La Tache. However, with these two wines, I am always ready to review my opinion! Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2003 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 3575 Everything about this vintage is 'legendary'. With ten days in August when the temperature went over 38 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit), the harvest began with the Echezeaux on 25th August and lasted just eight short mornings. The must was so rich that a relatively short vatting of 15 days was effected and the co-owners, Aubert de Villaine and Henri-Frederic Roch, decided not to acidify in spite of the very low acidity readings and to bottle earlier than usual. The wines have increasingly shown their individual terroir and characteristics and they have exciting fruit and freshness. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2003 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note The amazing element behind Romanee-Conti this year is that the wine has almost 'normal' acidity, whether due to the individual terroir, the remarkably old average age (53 years) of the vines, or the minute yield, we do not know. Suffice it to say that it has a magic scent that is totally true and utterly impressive in its purity and clarity. Complex and packed with aromatics. The taste is of pure bilberries, astonishing. Soft and mellow on the long finish. Reined in glory. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2004 VINTAGE "A vintage which in so many ways exemplifies perfectly our vision for this Domaine, offering a fidelity and transparency in each terroir allied to a purity, elegance and seduction which will assure it a privileged position among the beautiful vintages of these last few years." Aubert de Villaine BOTTLES PRODUCED: 5663 Undoubtedly, the Domaine made the wines of the vintage. This was a year when viticultural skills were tested to the limit and ruthless pruning, combined with the decision to wait until 25 September before beginning the harvest, have given us wines that excel. The naturally high alcohols, for the vintage, were achieved by the numerous super-concentrated berries releasing their sugars at the very end of the fermentations. The rest is history in the glass. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2004 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Amazing persistence on the nose, with spicy smokiness. Incredible flavour and length with the silky seduction that marks out this unique vineyard. You could call this weightless density. There is even a touch of nuttiness on the finish which I sometimes see in Romanee-Conti. This wine has a very far horizon of development. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2005 VINTAGE Aubert de Villaine said this about the vintage: "What we have here are wines with incredible energy, virility and concentration: their power more than measures up to a vintage keen to stamp its mark, against which they are fighting long and hard to impose their terroir." BOTTLES PRODUCED: 5489 Aubert's picturesque description of this outstanding vintage reflects both its legendary potential, for these are very long-lived wines, and its inherent 'wildness', a characteristic that I adore in a great Burgundy. The huge fruit and power hit you immediately, almost like a tiger waiting to pounce. Dark density, deeply enveloping flavour and vibrant sweetness are the key words here. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2005 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Notes of tobacco and liquorice on the nose. So elegant and streamlined. A completely different texture from La Tache. A huge concentrated kernel, or centre, of cassis. Tight-knit heart. Still guarding its best secrets for us. Will be a landmark Romanee-Conti. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2006 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 5546 This was a rollercoaster viticultural year, crowned with four great weeks in September.-- Virtually the entire month was fine and the grapes ripened apace, reaching a crescendo in the third week when the official harvest date was announced for 18 September, with the Domaine starting two days later.-- Ripeness levels here were as high as those attained in 2005 and the resulting wines surprised us all with their sheer class, style, finesse and elegance, truly packed with flavour. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2006 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Extremely complex spicy nose, multi-layered and mysterious. Enormous, packed-down concentration on the palate. A wonderful sweet, gummy taste. A finish of pure blueberries. Peaty aftertaste plus huge fruit. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2007 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 4088 This was a growing season that gave cause for concern.-- After a really warm April start, flowering did not go as planned and then the summer turned into a battle with mildew, oidium and botrytis, dealt with at the Domaine using organic and biodynamic methods. --However, from 20th August until the end of September, it was gloriously sunny, bright and fresh, setting the scene for rapidly increasing degree levels.-- The Domaine harvested in wonderful conditions during the first 8 days of September, giving a natural 13 degrees of alcohol.-- I remember writing, after the first tasting of the great Romanee Conti this year, 'the 2007s here are Chamber Music wines, rather than full orchestral Mahler' - and that is what I love about them. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2007 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note A smoky, tobacco-like quality to the bouquet. Then the archetypal sweetness comes through, with the emphasis on red cherries. It is like having a whole bowl of red and black fruit in the mouth. This really wins the day in 2007. A beautifully clear, clean sign-off. Rose petals and liquorice. This is pure class in the bottle. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2008 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 3151 Aubert de Villaine put it very succinctly when he said, 'It is extraordinary and something I have hardly ever seen in even 40 years - 2008 has the ripeness and maturity of a great vintage but at a cost in yield that is so savage'.-- Ruthless selection, leaf stripping and bunch thinning encouraged ripening, but luminously good weather did not materialise until 14 September.- The Domaine waited until 27 September to start harvesting, which lasted until 6 October.- Gorgeous, silky concentration is the result and all the sacrifices paid off. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2008 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note The phenomenally low yield and tireless vineyard work produced a wine that is gloriously expressive on the nose, announcing all the juicy fruit, concentration and silky structure that one finds on the palate. The length is both sensual and seductive, alluring in its purity and ability to fill the mouth with old-vine (an average age of 56 years) sweetness. Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2009 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 6465 There has to be something about Burgundy years that end in 9 - just think about it!-- Maybe there is a hint of 1959 in this vintage......It was an exceptionally sunny year, culminating in an Indian summer.-- There was a lot of vineyard protection from April to July, with both heat and storms, but from early August all was sweetness and light, albeit with dry conditions.-- Small clusters, small berries and yet generous quantity all made for smiling faces.-- The Domaine's harvest on the Cote de Nuits lasted from 13-19 September and the wines are terrific, rich, opulent and mouth-filling. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2009 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note Initially, less exuberant on the nose than La Tache but then the subtlety of all the scents pours in, blueberries and flowers. A 'lightness of being' on the palate in terms of refinement and finesse. Such sweet persistence, all lace and silk while La Tache is damask. A great compote of black fruit with an ethereal finish. One floats away on a cloud..... Serena Sutcliffe, MW THE 2010 VINTAGE BOTTLES PRODUCED: 4636 This is a simply beautiful vintage, but that does not mean it was an easy one!-- The lengthy, irregular flowering ensured a somewhat mean quantity and humid conditions in summer demanded vigilance and work.-- Small berries and thick skins resisted well the heat and storms of August and September, so that the Domaine could wait until 24 September to begin the harvest in Vosne, with the end of the second picking on 5 October.-- It is an extraordinary year for the sheer character and personality of each and every wine, intense, full of impact and, obviously, set for a long life due to the combination of freshness and depth.-- I intend to live long enough to see them burst into full bloom. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 2010 Romanee-Conti Tasting Note 19 hl/ha. Average age of vines: 56 years. Total production: 386 cases. This has the most intense nose of all the DRC wines in 2010, with totally enveloping eastern spices. Reminds me of heavenly apres-ski gluhwein! A mineral bite to it on the palate. Richer and deeper than all the others and the impact of the flavour is more pronounced. Beautifully defined, precise and poised, with a strawberry kickback. The juiciness of this vintage is so appealing. One of the great Romanee-Contis.

Château d'Yquem

THE LIQUID GOLD COLLECTION THREE CENTURIES OF CHATEAU D'YQUEM The finest and most extensive Collection of Château d'Yquem, both in bottles and magnums, ever to appear at auction Château d'Yquem Sauternes, 1er grand cru classé. Château-bottled Offered for sale lying in a secure and temperature and humidity controlled location in France Details of the Château The wines of Château d'Yquem are legendary in the world of Fine Wine. This historic property sits on top of a small hill, with commanding views over its neighbouring Sauternes Châteaux, surrounded by its immaculate and well-tended vines that are famous for bearing the grapes that make this world renowned dessert wine. The history of the buildings at dYquem dates back to the 12th Century and the estate itself, established in the 16th Century. Classified in 1855 as Premier Grand Cru Class the reputation and quality of the wines were at that time already widely known and indeed, d'Yquem wines were considered as superior to the other First Growths of the Médoc that were recognised in the same Classification. The most illustrious and successful period of ownership was under the Lur-Saluces Family from 1785-1997 and since that date the property has been owned a by the LVMH group. Because of its trademark richness and opulence, the wines of Château d'Yquem occupy a unique place in the history and appreciation of Fine Wine. The greatest vintages from the 19th and early 20th Centuries, if well cellared, can still offer glorious tasting experiences now in the 21st Century, with the more modern classics from the latter half of the last Century to the present day, still able to be kept for many, many decades. The methods of production have always been strictly controlled and monitored and because of this rigorous selection, it is said that each vine at d'Yquem only produces one small glass of the golden nectar that is without doubt, the most celebrated sweet wine in the world. The roll-call of famous vintages produced here is almost without end and from the 19th Century would include the 1825, 1858, 1864, 1869, 1874, 1893 and 1899. The first half of the 20th Century also produced numerous wines that acquired global fame and reputation such as 1900, 1921, 1929, 1937, 1945, 1947 and 1949. Nor has vintage success diminished in the most recent 6 decades with vintages such as 1959, 1967, 1975, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1990 and 2001 being the most sought-after wines of more recent times. Details of this Collection This incredible and totally unique Liquid Gold Collection of Château d'Yquem, incorporates 128 bottles and 40 magnums; representing a wide range of rare and excellent vintages in bottle from the 19th Century, every vintage produced in bottle from the 20th and 21st Centuries plus the only major Collection of magnums ever offered at auction spanning the period 1900 to 2005. Even more importantly, virtually every bottle and magnum included in the Collection has been seen and approved by the dedicated staff at Château d'Yquem in recent times, either for application of new labels or capsules, or for controlled re-corking of many of the older vintages, during the period of 1989 to 2009. Younger vintages from the most recent half century of vintages, are principally still with original corks, capsules and labels. All are considered to be of excellent appearance with appropriate depth of colour for each vintage. The Romanov Decanter The unique nature of the Collection is further enhanced by its exclusive presentation in custom-built individual wooden cases, carrying the Liquid Gold Collection logo and vintages for each 12 bottle or 6 magnum outer case. Also included with the Lot, is a very rare and special etched Decanter, from a limited edition of 5 only, this being #4, produced especially by Baccarat for Château d'Yquem and taken from an original 19th Century design created for the Romanovs, the Russian Royal Family. This is without doubt in our view, the finest and most extensive Collection of Château d'Yquem, both in bottles and magnums, ever to appear at auction and allows prospective bidders the potential to own a unique and guaranteed collection of one of the world's Number One wines spanning three Centuries.

The macallan m decanter-constantine

The Macallan M Decanter-Constantine See illustration Lot 212 1 imperial - 6 litre per lot: HKD 2000000-4000000 per lot: USD 260000-500000 THE MACALLAN IMPERIALE 6-LITRE "M" DECANTER CONSTANTINE The Macallan M Decanter is a collaboration between The Macallan, Lalique crystal, and Fabien Baron. This is the first time the Imperiale M Decanter has been publically offered. This lot is being offered without reserve and the proceeds will be distributed between local Hong Kong charities The standard 22.5% buyer's premium will be applied to the hammer price, a portion of which Sotheby's will donate to the Hong Kong Charities benefiting from the sale of this lot. The decanter is for collection only from Crown Wine Cellars in Tuen Mun, Hong Kong by the buyer or their nominated agent. The Hong Kong Tax has been fully paid on this lot, however, the buyer has sole responsibility for any transport costs and any duty or taxes when shipping the lot outside Hong Kong. THE DECANTER The 6 litre Macallan M decanter stands at 70 cms (28 inches) tall and weighing 11.3 Kgs empty and 16.8 Kgs once filled. The decanter will serve a total of three hundred 20ml drams. The making of this decanter posed a major technical challenge for Lalique at their works in Wingen-sur-Moder in Alsace, as it is the largest decanter they have ever made. Carrying and hand-blowing this weight of crystal took the decanter to the limit of its breaking point. Forty decanters were created and destroyed due to imperfections before this flawless decanter was completed. Each decanter took 17 craftsmen including two "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" (Best Crystal Craftsman in France) over 50 hours to complete. "Constantine" is unique as of the 4 imperiales created (all named after Roman Emperors - the others are Caesar, Augustus and Justinian) this is the only one signed by the 3 principals responsible for this extraordinary creation. Of the remaining decanters, 2 will be archived by The Macallan and the fourth sold privately. THE WHISKY The whisky for the M Decanter is the creation of Bob Dalgarno, Whisky Maker at The Macallan. He used his years of experience and has drawn on a handful of casks dating from the 1940s to the early 1990s, from nearly 200000 Single Malt casks at the distillery to create this unique interpretation of The Macallan. It is a full flavoured example of the classic Macallan house style characterised by a rich natural colour, derived solely from the wood, interwoven with rich dried fruits, spices, orange citrus and wood notes. THE PEOPLE Fabien Baron, creative Director at Baron and Baron conceived this distinctive, angular design with six striking facets paying homage to the "Six Pillars" at the heart of The Macallan's ethos: Easter Elchies House, the spiritual home of The Macallan; the curiously small stills; the small proportion (cream of the cream) from the spirit stills filled to cask; the exceptional oak casks; the natural colour derived from the casks; and The Macallan itself. Bob Dalgarno, Whisky Maker at The Macallan created a unique interpretation of the traditional Macallan house style while Silvio Denz, President and CEO of Lalique oversaw the production of this flawless decanter drawing on Lalique's 150 years of crystal expertise.

Château Mouton-Rothschild 1945

MOUTON-ROTHSCHILD 1945 IN MAGNUMS AN ARTISTIC VISION It was in 1927 that Baron Philippe de Rothschild set forth on his quest to become one of the most recognisable lables on the planet. For it was in that year that the Baron commissioned a piece of art from the renowned architect and stage-designer Jacques Carlu for Mouton's 1924 vintage. It was a highly stylized nineteen-twentyish pattern of the Mouton ram's head in black and grey, with a pale brown formalized chai and the five arrows representing in the family's arms the five Rothschild brothers who set out from Frankfurt in Napoleon's time. It also marked the beginning of an era at Mouton where 'château bottling' became the norm. The custom at Mouton of stating how many bottles the vintage produced and the numbering of each bottle began in 1934. Because of the controversial nature of château bottling and what it meant to the trade at the time and the soon to follow war the Baron rested this practice. The return of the artist label could not have restarted with a more auspicious year. Anyone associated with the wine trade at the time new that 1945 had produced one of the greatest vintages ever harvested. To celebrate this year of victory and French liberation Baron Philippe sought out a Rome prize winning artist, Philippe Jullian, to design a label for this monumental claret. Jullian's design incorporated the tendrils of the vine in gold; the words 1945 Année de la Victoire and a gold letter 'V'. It was produced as a top strip, about one inch deep, of the label the label as a whole, and this is the pattern that has repeated ever since: a specially-commissioned, previously unpublished design by an outstanding contemporary artist. The rest of the label bearing in gold, as it had done in the years just before the war, the original Carlu design of 1927, on a shield, with mouton supporters, surmounted by the coronet of a baron of the Austrian Empire. Property of a Gentleman Recently removed by Christie's from a temperature and humidity controlled, professionally maintained storage facility. Château Mouton-Rothschild--Vintage 1945 Pauillac, 1er cru classé Levels: two into neck, four base neck; one cut capsule verified château stamped cork with vintage visible, lightly bin soiled, Réserve du Château labels, Reserve Nicolas neck labels and stamped labels "I originally coined the phrase 'a Churchill of a wine', meaning larger than life, imediately recognisable, complex, endlessly fascinating, unforgettable. The only first growth I tasted in its (relative) youth. In July 1954 I wrote 'dark, deep, (yet) translucent; amazing nose. Quite unlike any other claret, spicy, Indian mango chutney (!). Loaded with tannin, acidity and all the good things. Full and flavoury'. Apart from the chutney, it still applies. The first thing to notice is its extraordinary colour. I have on more than one occasion recognised the wine by this alone. And its bouquet is equally distinctive, in fact one of the most astonishing smells ever to emerge from grapes grown out of doors. The power and spiciness surges out of the glass like a sudden eruption of Mount Etna: cinnamon, eucalyptus, ginger, 'Friars Balsam' (noted once!). Impossible to describe but imimitable, incomparable, and, because of this and its appearance, several times 'guessed' blind. There is simply no ther wine like it. Its taste is a component of smell, its fragrance is reflected on the palate. Still lovely, sitll vivacious. Seemingly tireless -- indeed another half century anticipated. June 2001 ****** (6 stars)."

Château Cheval-Blanc 1947

THE LEGENDARY CHEVAL-BLANC 1947 COLLECTION ONE OF THE GREATEST WINES OF ALL TIME OFFERED IN EXTRAORDINARY FORMATS. A TRUE RARITY AND UNIQUE ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC The estate of Cheval-Blanc is situated at the extremity of Saint-Emilion bordering on Pomerol, with views of l'Evangile and La Conseillante, and offers a very curious mixture of soil and subsoil areas whose nature changes at each step. A vineyard walk along the roadside clearly illustrates this; at Cheval-Blanc the soils are rich in clay, gravel, deep tan in colour, the soil looks nurished and moist. A few meters away, as one encroches upon La Dominique, the soil change is evidenced by more sand mixed with clay, altogether a lighter colour, more beige than tan. Their respective wines are at opposite ends of a spectrum, those of Cheval-Blanc retain breed and class. The result of Cheval-Blanc's soil diversity and an extremely well-chosen selection of grape varieties, combined with the assiduous care taken over the elevage and winemaking, coalesces to make a wine of a great softness, body and delicacy, plus a delicious bouquet, but most particularly a distinctive style which makes it instantly recognizable and more importantly in demand. No other wine in the appelation has a broad adrinking plateau as that Cheval-Blanc. Vintage 1947 ***** "The second of the three great post-war vintage. An increasingly hot summer followed by harvesting in almost tropical conditions. The grapes had an exceptionally high sugar content but the heat caused serious fermentation problems, resulting in quite a few wines suffering from high volatile acidity. On the whole, exceptionally rich almost voluptuous wines" Michael Broadbent, Vintage Wine book Château Cheval-Blanc--Vintage 1947 Saint-Emilion, 1er grand cru classé (A) All of the following wines were reconditionned at the chateau in 2010 and are in perfect condition. They all have new caspules, new labels and new original wooden cases from the chateau Tasting note: Having a 1947 Cheval Blanc served out of an impeccably stored magnum twice in three months during the summer of 1994, and on another occasion, from an extraordinary jerobaum, made me once again realize what a great job I have. The only recent Bordeaux vintage that comes even remotely close to the richness, texture, and viscosity of so many of these right bank 1947s is 1982. What can I say about this mammoth wine that is more like port than dry red table wine? The 1947 Cheval Blanc exhibits such a thick texture it could double as motor oil. The huge nose of fruitcake, chocolate, leather, coffee, and Asian spices is mind-boggling. The unctuous texture and richness of sweet fruit are amazing. Consider the fact that this wine is, technically, appallingly deficient in acidity and excessively high in alcohol. Moreover, its volatile acidity levels would be considered intolerable by modern day oenologists. Yet how can they explain that after 47 years the wine is still remarkably fresh, phenomenally concentrated, and profoundly complex? It has to make you wonder about the direction of modern day winemaking. Except for one dismal, murky, troubled, volatile double-magnum, this wine has been either perfect or nearly perfect every time I have had it. 100 points.

Château Mouton-Rothschild 1945

A CHURCHILL OF A WINE History Château Mouton Rothschild is a member of an elite group of Premier Cru estates in the commune of Pauillac and has the enviable position of controlling 207 acres in arguably some of the world's most important terroir. While Pauillac is not the largest of the communal appellations, that honor falls to Margaux, it is no coincidence that no fewer than three of the four Premier Crus and no fewer than fifteen other classified châteaux, nearly one third of those in the 1855 Classification, reside on this most important place of French 'terroir'. As a commune, Pauillac is split in two by a stream which flows diagonally across the territory in a north-easterly direction. North and west of this stream the land gently rises to a height of 27 meters above sea level, it is on this side that both Rothschild estates and Pontet-Canet can be found. South and east lie the Bages and Grand-Puy-Lacoste plateaux, the Bataileys, the Pichons and of course Château Latour. The soil in Pauillac is heavy gravel, thicker to the north than to the south and based on a subsoil of larger stones and iron based sand. It is precisely this soil quality that lends itself to excellent drainage in damp years. When combined with the old vines found at many of the estates and the relatively high water table the ability to withstand a dry season is the secret magic underneath this venerable terroir and of the resultant wines. At Mouton the classic Bordeaux varietal mix of Cabernet Sauvignon (77, Merlot (12, Cabernet Franc (9 and Petit Verdot (2 is observed in the vineyard. Average age of the vines are 48 years and are planted to a high-density ratio of plants to acre. At it's best this combination produces as full and concentrated a wine as you are likely to find in the Médoc. To be "Mouton" the wine will have its unmistakable opulence and a seductive aromatic cedar wood like complexity which makes for an exhilarating consumable liquid. Property of a Gentleman Recently removed by Christie's from a temperature and humidity controlled, professionally maintained storage facility. Château Mouton-Rothschild--Vintage 1945 Pauillac, 1er cru classé Levels: base of neck; one cut capsule verified château stamped cork with vintage visible, lightly bin soiled Réserve du Château lables, Reserve Nicolas neck labels and stamped labels In original wooden case "I originally coined the phrase 'a Churchill of a wine', meaning larger than life, imediately recognisable, complex, endlessly fascinating, unforgettable. The only first growth I tasted in its (relative) youth. In July 1954 I wrote 'dark, deep, (yet) translucent; amazing nose. Quite unlike any other claret, spicy, Indian mango chutney (!). Loaded with tannin, acidity and all the good things. Full and flavoury'. Apart from the chutney, it still applies. The first thing to notice is its extraordinary colour. I have on more than one occasion recognised the wine by this alone. And its bouquet is equally distinctive, in fact one of the most astonishing smells ever to emerge from grapes grown out of doors. The power and spiciness surges out of the glass like a sudden eruption of Mount Etna: cinnamon, eucalyptus, ginger, 'Friars Balsam' (noted once!). Impossible to describe but imimitable, incomparable, and, because of this and its appearance, several times 'guessed' blind. There is simply no other wine like it. Its taste is a component of smell, its fragrance is reflected on the palate. Still lovely, still vivacious. Seemingly tireless -- indeed another half century anticipated. June 2001 ****** (6 stars)."
