Henri Jayer wines headline London sale

Bonhams’ next fine wine sale in London next month will be headlined by wines from one of Burgundy’s most high-profile labels – Henri Jayer.

Six magnums of the late winemaker’s 1996 Vosne-Romanée Cros Parantoux, valued at £85,000 – £100,000, will be offered in London on 4 July.

Bonhams global director of Fine Wine, Richard Harvey MW, said: “This is one of the most iconic and sought-after wines of Burgundy, from a vineyard replanted by Henry Jayer after World War II.  Jayer retired in 1995 but retained a barrel of the wine, bottled under his label, until 2001, which makes this case of magnums exceptionally rare.”

Other bottles of Jayer at the sale include a bottle of the 1985 Cros Parantoux (£7-8,000), a bottle of the 1991 (£5-6,000) and two bottles of 1990 Echezeaux (£6-8,000).

Top flight Bordeaux on offer will include 1982 La Mission Haut-Brion, 1989 Latour and 1989 Petrus.
