3 bottles per lot

AN EXCELLENT COLLECTION OF LAFITE RECENTLY REMOVED FROM TWO NATURAL CELLARS. ALL WINES WERE SHIPPED DIRECT FROM THE CHATEAU.
Château Lafite-Rothschild 1945
Pauillac, 1er cru classé
Slightly corroded capsules. Bin-soiled and stained labels, one damaged and two slightly damaged. Levels top-shoulder
Tasting note: Nearly 30 notes, yet despite the varying occasions and contexts, what is remarkable is the relatively little bottle variation. Just about every note refers to a glorious fragrance which seems to unravel itself after 15 to 20 minutes in the glass. Most recently: another faultless bottle: lovely soft colour; classic bouquet, sweet, touch of iron, fragrant, developed richly; also sweet on the palate, mouthfilling flavour, life-preserving tannin still evident. A lovely wine. Last tasted November 2005 ***** M.B.

Lot 37

Château Lafite-Rothschild 1982
Pauillac, 1er cru classé
In original wooden case. Offered in original tissues. Good appearance. Levels into neck
Tasting note: The 1982 Lafite possesses a dark, dense ruby/purple colour with only a subtle lightening at the rim. Spectacular aromatics offer jammy cherry and black fruits intertwined with lead pencil, mineral, and smoky wood scents. Powerful for a Lafite, this wine unfolds to reveal extraordinary richness, purity, and overall symmetry in addition to stunning flavour depth and persistence. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. Plenty of tannin remains, and the wine displays a vibrancy and youthfulness that belie its 18 years of age. The modern day equivalent of Lafite-Rothschild’s immortal 1959, the 1982 will enjoy another 30-70 years of life! An amazing achievement! Anticipated maturity: 2007-2070. Robert Parker. Wine Advocate 129 (June 2000)

Stored in a French Château
Château Latour 1957
Pauillac, 1er cru classé
Original wooden case. Original metal bands removed by Christie’s specialist staff to check contents. All bottles in original straws. Corroded capsules. Bin-soiled labels with minor damage and original tissues attached. In all acceptable for age. Levels: two base of neck, one very top-shoulder, five top-shoulder, two just below top-shoulder, two upper-shoulder.

Lot 62

Château Latour 1959
Pauillac, 1er cru classé
In damaged original wooden case, no lid. In original straws. Good conditions for age. Slightly corroded capsules. Badly bin-soiled labels with remains of tissue attached. Levels: two base of neck, five top-shoulder, two just below top-shoulder, one upper shoulder, one mid shoulder, one mid/low shoulder. 
Tasting note: A glorious mammoth wine. It just goes from strength to strength. Forty notes from July 1963. Initially a black purple colour, nose packed with fruit, full-bodied, its extract and sheer power seeming to absorb, partially to disguise its tannic intensity….More recently, showing no signs of flagging, its opacity merely prefacing its beautifully developed bouquet, excellent flavour and perfect balance – perfect enough to keep up the maturing process for another quarter century. Last noted at the Russian National Orchestra dinner at Hatchlands, Surrey, Dec 2000 ****(**)! M.B.
12 bottles per lot

Estimate: CHF 30,000 – CHF 40,000

 

Lot 67

Petrus 1982

RARE JEROBOAMS OF THE LEGENDARY PETRUS 1982 AND TALBOT 1982.
Recently removed from an excellent temperature controlled cellar in Northern Europe. These have been shipped to the cellar after release.
Petrus 1982
Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
Slightly corroded capsule. Damaged and stained label. Excellent level, high fill
Tasting note: From barrel, this remains one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted. Whether fining and filtration pulled more out of it than was intended, only the proprietor knows. However, the 1982 Petrus turned in a strong performance in Philadelphia in contrast to other tastings when it has been less than spectacular. The colour reveals some amber at the edge. A sweet nose of caramel, roasted herbs, cherry jam, cedar, and smoke is followed by a thick, full-bodied, unctuously-textured, low acid Petrus that is approaching full maturity. This was a dazzling showing for this 1982, which has performed irregularly since birth. Although abundant tannin remains, the wine is sweet, smoky, and ideal for drinking now and over the next 20-25 years. A bottle drunk in France in March, 2000, was equally sublime. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 129 (June 2000)

Estimate: CHF 22,000 – CHF 38,000

 

Lot 96

Château Margaux 1996
Margaux, 1er cru classé
In banded original wooden case
Tasting note: An outstanding wine and, as so often, a joy to taste from the start. A high percentage (85%) of Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc. Totally different style to the ’95, leaner, spicy, taut fruit, finesse. Good nose, dumb at first but developed lovely fragrance; good flavour and length but tannic and unready. Last tasted June 2003 **(***) Now-2030. MB

Lot 117

Château Margaux 1990
Margaux, 1er cru classé
Not in original wooden case. Levels: four into neck, three base of neck and two top-shoulder
Tasting note: Even in cask, lean, stylish and supple, its inimitable aroma, raspberry-like, quick to evolve. Developing well through that decade, fragrant, fleshy. At ten years of age, rich nose of great depth; sweet, well constituted, excellent length. Most recently: plummy, deep core but starting to mature; very fragrant bouquet; lovely flavour, excellent balance but very tannic – needed food, and more time. Last tasted May 2005 ***(*) M.B.

Estimate: CHF 950 – CHF 1,200

 

Lot 146

GREAT BORDEAUX INCLUDING LE PIN 1995
Le Pin 1995
Pomerol
Not in original wooden case
Tasting note: A dense ruby-coloured Le Pin, the 1995 offers up aromas of lead pencil, roasted nuts, smoke, spice, fruitcake, and black cherries intermixed with white chocolate. Luscious and full-bodied, with low acidity, but plenty of grip and tannin in the finish, this wine, with its abundant cola, kirsch, and black raspberry flavours, is revealing far more structure since bottling than it did in cask. It appears to be every bit as structured and tannic as the 1996. The 1995 Le Pin will take a few years to come around. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 115 (February 1998)

OLD AND RARE MADEIRA RECENTLY REMOVED FROM A PRIVATE CELLAR ON THE ISLAND
From OP Brothers private collection. With a keen eye for quality and rarity these bottles have been selected from old Madeirean collections by OP.
Most bottles were inspected and recorked. A number of wines were tasted by Christie’s staff.
JCA & C, Reserva Superior 1740
Recorked in 2015 by OP. New wax cap with OP seal. Stencilled bottle, fading. Level: 3cms
Tasting note: First tasted January 2017. Medium rich nose of caramel, uplifting citrus aromas and cream. Fresh apricot, mango and banana. An attractive nose full tropical enjoyment over some mineral flavours. Good depth and complexity. Direct well concentrated aromas of wax, old wood and dried apricots. Slightly sweet over high acidity. On the finish quite strong gripping acidity of the well-aged type ending with pure dried citrus fruits. Interesting wine of character and length. Very good. Then half a year later. High toned nose with exotic fruits like mango and apricot, quite sweet with a touch of nail remover. This vanished slowly with some air. Deep and well cask aged. Intense medium sweet taste, creamy exotic fruit aromas. Full of strength and liveliness. Concentrated flavours. A strong wine of exotic character. Very good. Last tasted July 2017. EV.

JS MADEIRA’S
These bottles were discovered by OP Brothers in São Vicente. They had original wax seals and corks but were in very poor condition; The bottles were completely covered with dirt and sand. The contents of some bottles had no wine characteristics due to the loss of alcohol, they were refused. All bottles were carefully cleaned and opened. The Madeira was placed in demijohns while the original bottles were cleaned and newly stencilled where necessary. Then the wine was rebottled, recorked and rewaxed. From these bottles we were able to taste a number of wines, our notes are added to the specific lots.
Who J.S. was that made these wines remains uncertain. The stencilling is quite unique in its design and paint. This ink was also used by João Carlos d’Aguiar from Estreito de Câmara de Lobos. They appear to be extremely rare and possibly are from Dr. João Vicente da Silva who was from Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, born around 1803. For about 40 years he was in the service of the City Hall. By his death in 1895 his nephew inherited a collection of old Madeira wines stored in six cellars in the area of Ribeiro Real.
We were unable to receive comfirmation that the J.S. Madeiras in fact were from João Vicente da Silva. Our research continues. Meanwhile we are pleased to offer these historic and very unique bottles.

Lot 203

J.S. Terrantez 1808
Recorked by OP in 2015. Three part moulded stencilled bottles. New wax seals. Levels: into-neck
Tasting note: Sweet nose, very nice, soft and attractive. Spicy oak cask style, honeyed. Rounded buttery taste, unctuous fudge tones. Great intensity of concentration. Sweet grapefruit on the finish. Quite a rich Terrantez with silky rich mouth feel, in the style of the 1808 Blandy Luscious Malmsey but not as multi layered. Packed in acidity. Not as complex as other 1808’s still a very good wine. Last tasted August 2016. EV

Lot 210

Terrantez 1842
Recorked by OP in 2015. Three part moulded bottle with bin-soiled and damaged label. New wax seal. Level: into-neck
Tasting note: First tasted with JNV seal. Sweet a bit musty nose at first. Later on losing the musty touch and showing more aromas of overripe apricots, honey cake and Indian spices. Fairly elegant aromatic nose. On the taste more musty and showing a TCA fault. Intensely sweet of caramel sweets, ending with some concentrated acidity. Clearly not a long aged wine only just showing its character of grapefruit bitters with fine acidity on the finish. Good rather than great Terrantez. A year later presenting itself more refined, creamy nose of buttery charm and fine red grapefruit tones on the finish. An amazing complexity of taste. Very good Terrantez. 18. Consistent notes throughout 2016, very good wine. Last tasted January 2017. EV

Lot 213

HM Borges, Terrantez 1862
Recorked in 2015 by OP. Three part moulded bottle. Wax capsule. Bin soiled damaged label. Level: into-neck
Tasting note: First tasted June 2015. In first instance a bit dusty off putting nose, clearly bottle stink as with air the true aromas emerged. Fine-tuned, minty, dried rose petals, intriguing and complex. On the taste more direct then the nose would make you expect. Touch spirity over a medium sweet pure taste. Quite intense and lingering, nice grapefruit bitters and fine racy acidity. Wine of strength, the alcohol is somewhat present to be graded excellent. On the after taste this is more mellowed and balanced. None the less a very good Terrantez of character. Maybe not the right bottle, it did have A year and a half later showing much more character. A more uplifted nose, touch volatile, old banana leaves, quite sweet and concentrated, lots of strength and depth. On the taste at first sweet rich mouth filling with quite a punch of high natural acidity. Great complexity. A wine that goes on and on. Last tasted January 2017. EV

Very different from the 1860 Torra Bella Terrantez, soft fudge on the taste, floral tones with pretty grapefruit bitter on the after taste. Quite deep and concentrated, long cask aged.

FINE AND RARE COGNAC INCLUDING TWO COMPLETE ERTE COLLECTIONS
Hennessy Timeless
Bottle number 10 of 2000. Baccarat crystal decanter with crystal stopper and booklet. 
Crafted in 1999 to illustrate the company’s past and look forward to the future promised by the new Millennium. Timeless is a blend of 11 eaux-de-vie from Grande and Petite Champagne, from 1900, 1918, 1929, 1939, 1947, 1953, 1959, 1961, 1970, 1983 and 1990 vintages. Overseen by master blender Yann Fillioux, Timeless was limited to 2000 bottles that sold out almost immediately on release as collectors and connoisseurs alike scrambled to get one of the precious bottles. The beautiful pebble-shaped crystal decanter for Hennessy Timeless was designed by Thomas Bastide of Baccarat, France’s most prestigious crystal house. Captured in an eye-catching steel frame, the Timeless decanter caused a sensation on release and is today recognized as a genuine design classic that many have sought to emulate, but most have failed to achieve.

Lot 387

Château Haut-Brion 1989
Pessac (Graves), 1er cru classé
Stamps with digits glued on labels. Levels at 0.5cm below base of corks
Tasting note: Haut-Brion has been the most consistent first-growth over the last decade, producing top-notch wines, even in such tough years as 1987, 1993, and 1994. The 1989 is one of a handful of truly profound wines from a vintage that tends to be overrated, save for the Pomerols, a few St.-Emilions, and some overachievers in the Medoc. However, 1989 was an extraordinary success for Jean Delmas, the administrator of Haut-Brion and La Mission-Haut-Brion. The prodigious 1989 Haut-Brion is one of the greatest first-growths I have ever tasted. It has always reminded me of what the 1959 must have tasted like in its youth, but it is even richer and more compelling aromatically. The wine exhibits an opaque ruby/purple colour, as well as a sweet nose of jammy fruit, tobacco, spicy oak, minerals, and smoke. Fabulously concentrated, with huge levels of fruit, extract, and glycerin, this wine is nearly viscous because of its thickness and richness. Low acidity gives the wine even more appeal and adds to its precociousness. The wine has not budged in development since it was first bottled, although it has always provided thrilling drinking because of its voluptuous texture. It needs another 5-6 years of bottle age before it will begin to develop Haut-Brion’s fabulous fragrance. Expect it to hit its plateau of maturity around 2003-2005 and drink well for 15-25 years.

Château Lafite-Rothschild 1986
Pauillac, 1er cru classé
In original wooden case. In original tissues. Pristine labels, excellent appearance. Levels into neck
Tasting note: The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep colour, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. Patience is required. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030 Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Edition (1998)
