Finest & Rarest Wines & Spirits

Christie’s London Finest & Rarest Wines and Spirits on 28 and 29 November will be highlighted by a collection of Château Latour, a beautiful single-owner collection, champagnes from the House of Lanson and a host of rare whiskies including bottles direct from The Macallan.

A spectacular collection of Château Latour direct from the cellar of the estate’s former winemaker Denis Malbec will present a most impressive selection of vintages seen at auction. Vintages of impeccably stored 19th and 20th century Latour feature in bottles, magnums and large formats. Vintages range from 1863 to 2009 and Forts de Latour and Pauillac also feature alongside rare treasures such as Grapillons de Latour and the little seen Rosé from Latour. The Malbec family have a long association with the famous Château beginning in 1937 with Camille Malbec and when Denis became the winemaker in 1994 he ensured that the bottles in his family vaults were recorked and reconditioned. They have not moved from the family cellar at the edge of the Latour vineyards until collection for this exceptional sale.

An outstanding single-owner collection will be offered with exceptional vintages of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Le Pin, Dom Perignon, Cristal and Gaja. Highlights include a 12 bottle case of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Richebourg, 1978 (estimate: £60,000-90,000 per lot), a 12 bottle case of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Montrachet, 1986 (estimate: £60,000-90,000 per lot), and a large parcel of Cristal 1977 (estimate: £2,500-3,500).

Christie’s are pleased to partner with the House of Lanson to offer remarkable bottles of champagne direct from their cellars including Vintage Collection 1976-1999, Clos Lanson (a unique single vineyard of Chardonnay) 2006 (estimate: £12,000-18,000 per lot) and the rare Noble Cuvée Brut (estimate: £1,900-2,800 per lot) and Blanc de Blancs from the excellent 2002 vintage (estimate: £1,400-1,900 per lot).
