Atlas Fine Wines launches ‘The Great Domaine Leroy Auction’
Atlas Fine Wines has launched its first online auction featuring 65 lots from Burgundy’s Domaine Leroy estate from one private collection.
The auction, which spans vintages from 1996 to 2014, includes a selection of extremely rare original wooden cases including a mixed case of 1999 Musigny, Grand Cru and 1999 Volnay, 1er Cru Santenots and a 12-bottle case of 1999 Richebourg, Grand Cru.
“Many of the wines included were purchased by the seller from a UK merchant who, at one point in time, enjoyed an impressive direct allocation,” said the company in a statement, adding that “the client has kept the original invoices, so we can confirm the provenance of a number of these cases by showing the invoice with personal details redacted. Such supporting paperwork is seldom available and should therefore give any prospective buyers confidence.”
All the stocks are currently stored in Atlas’ dedicated reserves area at LCB Vinothèque. For all stocks purchased, Atlas can assist in arranging prompt worldwide shipping – quotations can be supplied on request.
The sale marks the start of a new facet of Atlas’ business and highlights the services it can provide, not only in assembling such collections, but also in marketing them for clients for future sales.
The auction, which began on 8 November, will conclude on 6 December 2021.
