Magnums of Ausone 1921 and Ausone 1955, twelve bottles of Latour 1959, described as a “a monument to all that is great in Pauillac” by Serena Sutcliffe MW, Sotheby’s international head of wine, and Haut Brion 1961 are among the auction’s highlights.

Double magnums of Pétrus 1982, estimated at £8,000 to £10,000 per lot, and Jeroboams of the 1981 vintage, estimated to bring £3,000 to £4,000 per lot, will also be on offer.

From Burgundy three Jeroboams, with an estimate of £8,000-10,000 per lot, nine bottles, estimated at £18,000 to £24,000, and five magnums, estimated at £20,000 to £26,000, of La Tâche 1971 will also go under the hammer.

Among the stand-out Classed Growths are four Imperials of Pichon Longueville Lalande 1982 and a large offering of Domaine Drouhin-Laroze 2003 and 2006 vintages, with estimates starting from £160.

A collection of DRC sourced from an underground cellar in Northern Europe and assemblage of Pétrus 1945 and 1947 vintages in bottles and magnums from the private cellar of a Bordelaise family are further highlights.

The second day of the sale will feature  a selection of “eclectic and far-ranging” wines from the top names of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Italy and Spain, which will give collectors the chance to purchase “ready-to-drink wines” to suit all palates and pockets.

A range of wines from the legendary Spanish winery, Bodegas Vega Sicilia and German Rieslings from Mosel Spätlese and Auslese from Dr. Loosen are set to be further highlights.

The sale will take place on 17 and 18 September.
