Additional highlights include vast offerings of Sine Qua Non featuring 38 lots (estimated at $58,010-$87,250), including a double magnum in its original wooden case of the 100-point 2002 Sine Qua Non Syrah, Just For The Love Of It.

Comprehensive offerings from Screaming Eagle are also featured throughout the sale with an exciting 68 bottles and three magnums on offer, spanning every vintage produced from 1992 to 2007.
