Cases are all of 12 bottles, duty paid and include: 1990 Penfolds Bin 128, 2006 Château Gloria, 2009 Phelan-Ségur, 2005 Clos Puy Arnaud, 2004 Talbot, 2006 Sylvain Cathiard Nuits-St-Georges Murgers, 2003 Clos Papes Chateauneuf du Pape, 1995 Corton Charlemagne from Bonneau Martray, 1999 Pol Roger, 2011 Taylor’s and many more.

The sale and logistics are being handled by Liv-ex at no extra cost. The full list of wines and how to bid can be found here. Private collectors can bid through their wine merchants, Liv-ex members through the site.
