Historic Vintages from Château Latour on Auction

Are you a frustrated wine collector in India? Here’s news that will gladden your heart. Christie’s International Wine Department returns to Asia on November 29th with the most exciting selection of wine ever seen in any wine sale in the region. Featuring 245 lots of blue-chip wines, this sale will be a feature on the calendars of wine collectors not only throughout Asia, but around the world, notes a company release. latour1a.jpg

Wine lovers in India know Château Latour whose wines are brought to us by importers such as Sansula and Brindco. And many of us have met Frédéric Engerer, President of Château Latour, on his visits to India.

Engerer says, “Many people know the wines of Château Latour well, yet there are others who are still discovering them. This is why we are so delighted to be bringing this significant consignment of some of our rarest bottles and greatest vintages to Hong Kong, for this Christie’s auction. These wines have never left the property. For exacting collectors, seeking perfection of provenance, these bottles may be considered as ideal reference points. Added to which, in some cases – like the magnum of 1900 – this will be one of the very last opportunities to acquire such rarities, where the chateau has no more left….”
Indeed, leading the Christie’s sale is a totally unique and unrepeatable selection from the reserve cellars of Château Latour. No other single property has done more to establish the global recognition of Bordeaux wines in general and the ultimate quality and reliability of the finest ‘First Growths’ of the region. This sale will feature a selection covering the period of 1865 to 2005 – all removed directly from the property and shipped to Hong Kong specifically for inclusion into this landmark auction. The 127 lots are valued in the region of HK$10million.
The Latour selection is complemented by some of the finest wines from the most pristine private collections held within the UK. The main factor that links these lots together is that the vast majority have never been traded or moved from the original situation of their owner’s own cellar and as such are true ‘one-owner’ wines that are so highly-coveted by collectors today.
