Sotheby's to host second wine sale from The Don Stott Cellar
Sotheby's is preparing to sell the second offering of rare wines from The Don Stott Cellar.
“There is always a ‘frisson’ of excitement when a generous host pours a bottle from the Stott collection," said Serena Sutcliffe MW, Honorary Chairman of Sotheby's Wine.
"This spectacular sale will provide some of the most glorious tastes known to man, offering myriad opportunities for pulling corks with friends and family, particularly if they share Don and my passion for the world’s great Burgundy and Champagne.”
Earlier this year, the first offering of wines from Stott's cellar crossed the block at Sotheby's with remarkable results. The New York sale saw almost 2,000 lots sold for a total of $8,412,626, making it the fourth-biggest single owner wine sale in Sotheby's history.
Prior to the first sale, Sutcliffe described Stott's cellar as "the most starry collection of wine we have ever offered, the Northern Lights, the Milky Way and the Midnight Sun all rolled into one!"
This second sale, featuring wines from the greatest Côte d’Or producers of the last 100 years, is expected to realize in excess of $3 million.
Amongst the highlights are some of the rarest wines from Domaines Rousseau and Roumier, famous vintages from Giacomo Conterno including the 1958 Barolo Monfortino, and notable Champagnes such as the Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1995 and the Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 1982.
Across the board the collection will include more than $1.9 million of red Burgundy, and $239,000 of White Burgundy, with Rhone wines from the likes of Jean- Louis Chave and Paul Jaboulet accounting for over $288,000. The sale will also offer more than $100,000 of vintage Champagne, and over $100,000 in rare Italian Wines.
The two-day sale takes place in New York on December 4-5.
