Outstanding Burgundies on offer in February

Opportunities not to be missed for the discerning collector in Chicago

Edward Roberts International is holding their first fine wine auction of 2010 on February 7 in Chicago. We have already mentioned some of the lots, notably the 1959 Chteau D'Yquem and 1961 Chteau La Mission Haut-Brion.

The sale also has a particularly fantastic range of Burgundies, however, especially from the collection of Albert D Williams Jr. The bottles have been carefully stored by the collector and should be in perfect condition.

The white Burgundies present a range of Grand Cru vintages including 1970 Le Montrachet and Corton Charlemagne 1973 and 1978.

Amongst the Grand Cru red Burgundies, however, one particular type appears to have been a favourite of Williams, as a significant number of bottles of it are available: 1976 Pierre Gelin Chambertin Clos de Beze.

The sale may be expected to be busy. Edward Roberts International enjoyed growth in wine sales of up to 14% through 2009, and wine has proved to be an extremely successful investment in recent years.
