Mouton vertical to take centre stage at Bonhams sale

16th May, 2013 by Rupert Millar

A 20-bottle vertical of Mouton Rothschild from 1989 to 2009 will be one of the main attractions at Bonhams London sale later this month.

mouton 04The Mouton vertical includes labels featuring artwork by Lucien Freud (2006), Balthus (1993), Francis Bacon (1990) and the Prince of Wales (2004, pictured) and is estimated to fetch between £5,000 – £7,000.

Other Bordeaux at the sale on 23 May includes a bottle of Lafite 1945 (£1,500-£2,000), 1982 Pétrus (£40,000-£60,000) and a case of Le Pin 1985 (10,000-£15,000).

There will also be a fine line-up of Burgundies with a combined estimate of over £200,000 and including names such as Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (with vintages from the 1980s and 1990s); Henri & Georges Jayer and Emmanuel Rouget.

Rhône wines in the shape of Jaboulet’s Hermitage La Chapelle and Super Tuscans including 2000 Sassicaia, 1990 Solaia and 1997 Masseto, round out the 730 lot sale – as do several lots of rare Cognac.

Richard Harvey MW, international director of Bonhams Wine Department, said: “There are some really exciting wines in this sale. In particular, it’s a great pleasure to be offering the Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle 1978.

“It’s a superb wine which rarely comes onto the market. The exceptional collection of Romanée-Conti is also likely to arouse great interest and the Mouton Rothschild with the labels designed by famous artists are always popular.”
