Bordeaux and Burgundy wines among preferred at Bonhams recent auction
A recent Fine and Rare Wine sale at Bonhams demonstrated a profound interest in French wines. The London auction featured wines from celebrated estates including Château Latour and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze surpassing £750,000 in the sale.
Bonhams, founded in 1793, holds several Fine and Rare wine auctions throughout the year. Their most recent sale, this past July enticed buyers from the UK, Europe and East Asia. Buyers consisted of a mix of trade customers and private collectors. In this auction, wines from France’s famed Bordeaux and Burgundy proved particularly interesting. A lot of 12 bottles of Château Latour Pauillac Premier Grand Cru Classé from 2010 fetched €12,024.
Among the favorite Bordeaux lots were the 1955 Château Mouton Rothschild, the 1989 Château Haut-Brion and a 2011 Château Lafite Rothschild. Burgundy wines also attracted attention, especially a lot of a dozen bottles of a 2006 Chambertin Domaine Armand Rousseau which sold for €14,829. Other favorites from this area included: a lot with six bottles of Chambertin-Clos de Bèze and another with six bottles of Bonnes-Mares, both were from 1990 and they sold for €16,032 each.
Richard Harvey, Master of Wine and Senior International Director of Wine at Bonhams commented on the special care with which the top lots had been stored at The Wine Society saying this “undoubtedly contributed to its appeal and shows the importance to value of keeping wine in first class condition.”
