Second part of Perenchio cellar on sale in NYC

The second part of the collection owned by the famous US entrepreneur Jerry Perenchio is to be sold by Sotheby’s in New York next month.

Taking place on 19 May, the auction follows on from the first part which was sold for over US$6 million when offered in Hong Kong this March.

Described by the auctioneer as, “one of the most superb collections of mature wines ever to appear at auction,” the collection to go under the hammer in New York includes rare and great wines from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Leroy and de Vogüé, Petrus and all the Left Bank first growths.

Highlights include cases of 1978 DRC, La Tâche; 1985 Leroy Chambertin; Henri Jayer, 1985 Richebourg and 1959 and 1986 Mouton Rothschild and Lafite.

A renowned entrepreneur, Perenchio was one of the producers of the film Blade Runner. The proceeds of the auction, as was the case in Hong Kong, will go to benefit the Perenchio Foundation supporting the visual and performing arts in Los Angeles.

Jamie Ritchie, worldwide head of Sotheby’s Wine, commented: “Following the outstanding results from the first auction in Hong Kong, we are excited to present this second offering of exceptional wines from the cellar from The Estate of Jerry Perenchio.

“Last month, we witnessed extraordinary enthusiasm from many of the world’s leading collectors who tried to secure wines for their cellars. With the New York auction, these collectors, as well as many more from North and South America, will have the opportunity to buy wines from this historic collection. This is an auction that should not be missed by wine collectors, connoisseurs and drinkers.”
