Collections of leading Burgundies and other fine wines are going under the hammer in London this week at sales held by Sotheby’s and Bonhams.

Taking place on Wednesday 11 July, Sotheby’s will be offering a number of blue chip fine wines including all the usual great names from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne.

Clarets and Sauternes on sale include: 1989 and 1990 Haut-Brion, 1996 Latour and Mouton Rothschild in large formats, 2000 Latour, 1967 and 1975 Yquem, 1982 Petrus and Lafleur, 2000 Ausone and a “near complete vertical” of Mouton spanning 1941 to 1988.

From Burgundy there is a backbone of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti featuring all of the red grands crus from numerous vintages, more reds from Armand Rousseau including a vertical from 1989 to 1996 and white Burgundies from Leflaive and Lucien le Moine.

Salon, Krug and Dom Pérignon round out the Champagnes and a spirits selection featuring Cognac, Scotch and Japanese whisky will also be offered.

The whole sale is expected to raise £1-£1.3 million.

The following day at Bonhams meanwhile, another 250 lots of fine wines from a private collection will go on sale.

They include cases of all the first growths from the 2010 vintage and various half and full cases of fine Burgundy from Rousseau, Georges Roumier and Dujac among others.

Bonhams senior international director of wine, Richard Harvey MW, said: “This outstanding collection has been stored immaculately at The Wine Society and under Bond in Wiltshire; the wines are in first class condition.  It has been put together with an eye to the highest quality and includes many of the greatest names from Bordeaux and Burgundy”
