Session I – Fine Wines Lots 1–418 To be sold Tuesday, October 30, 2012, at 5:30PM


Property of a Wayland Gentleman. This collection of outstanding wines was removed by Skinner specialists and features highlights such as ’82 Margaux, Haut Brion and Mouton, as well as right-bank classics including Ausone and Cheval Blanc. The conditions of the wine speak for themselves from this Yankee cellar. Also see lots 600-617 online. 1 Chateau Margaux 1982 Margaux, 1er Cru Classe u: one into neck, five bottom neck, five very top shoulder, one top shoulder, three with signs of old seepage, three lightly corroded capsules, lightly bin-soiled labels “Consistently scoring between 98-100, the superb 1982 Margaux may be slightly bigger, bolder, and more masculine than vintages produced over the last 15-20 years. Its dark plum/purple color is followed by notes of melted tar intermixed with sweet cassis and floral underpinnings. Very full-bodied and dense for a Chateau Margaux, with a slight rusticity to the tannins, it boasts blockbuster power, richness, and impressive aromatics. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 06/09 12 bottles $8,000-12,000 2 Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1982 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe u: four bottom neck, four very top shoulder, two top shoulder, three nicked capsules, lightly bin-soiled labels R. Parker, 100 pts. 06/09 10 bottles $7,000-10,000 3 Chateau Haut Brion 1982 Pessac Leognan, 1er Cru Classe u: seven 2.5cm or better, three 3.0cm, two 3.5cm, lightly bin-soiled labels, lightly faded labels “I know Jean Delmas, whom I respect as one of the world’s greatest wine producers, has always thought the 1982 Haut Brion was similar to the 1959, but I have yet to see that. It seems to me the 1989 is closer to the 1959, another perfect wine and one of the all-time great Haut Brions. While the 1982 is a beauty, it has never hit the highest notes this vintage or terroir can achieve. Complex aromatics of scorched earth, smoked herbs, and sweet red and black currants are followed by a full-bodied, silky-textured wine, but I have never felt this offering has possessed the concentration, texture, or multidimensional personality found in such vintages as 1989, 1990, and more recent years. Nevertheless, this is essentially splitting hairs as the 1982 remains a superb Haut Brion. Seemingly less evolved than the 1990, it is capable of another 20-30 years of longevity. Perhaps there is something in reserve that will reveal itself in the next decade.” R. Parker, 95 pts. 06/09 12 bottles $6,000-8,000

Cos d’Estournel’s next-door-to-Pauillac proximity belies its repute—the property is situated literally just above Lafite… Successive generations of the Pratts family appear as if to live and draw breath entirely to drive Cos (pronounce the “s”) to whatever heights the Pauillac trio (Latour, Mouton and Lafite) pull out. –PhM 4 Chateau Cos d’Estournel 1982 St. Estephe, 2eme Cru Classe u: into neck, lightly wrinkled capsules, binsoiled labels R. Parker, 95 pts. 06/09 6 bottles $1,250-2,000 5 Chateau Cos d’Estournel 1982 St. Estephe, 2eme Cru Classe u: two into neck, one bottom neck, one nicked capsule, one nicked label R. Parker, 95 pts. 06/09 3 magnums $1,250-2,000 6 Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 1970 St. Julien, 2eme Cru Classe u: three very top shoulder, three top shoulder, lightly bin-soiled labels 6 bottles $600-900 7 Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 1982 St. Julien, 2eme Cru Classe u: ten into neck, two very top shoulder, nicked capsules, lightly bin-soiled labels R. Parker, 96 pts. 06/09 12 bottles $3,000-4,000 8 Chateau Gruaud Larose 1982 St. Julien, 2eme Cru Classe u: eleven into neck, one bottom neck “A massive wine that is clearly of first-growth quality in this vintage, the 1982 Gruaud Larose remains a youngster. A broodingly dense, thick, unctuously textured, inky/plum/garnet/ purple color offers up scents of beef blood, steak tartare, cassis, herbs, tobacco, and underbrush. One of the most concentrated wines of the vintage (as well as one of the most concentrated Bordeaux’s I have ever tasted), it is a huge, full-bodied, weighty, rich wine whose tannins are getting silkier and silkier. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life. This behemoth is a singularly profound example of Gruaud Larose that continues to justify its legendary status.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 06/09 12 bottles $3,000-4,000

9 Chateau Leoville Barton 1982 St. Julien, 2eme Cru Classe u: one into neck, five bottom neck, two very top shoulder, two top shoulder, one with signs of old seepage, lightly bin-soiled labels 10 bottles $2,000-3,000 10 Chateau Lynch Bages 1982 Pauillac, 5eme Cru Classe u: three into neck, one bottom neck, two very top shoulder, lightly bin-soiled labels “Beautifully mature with sweet, sun-drenched black currant, fig, roasted herb and loamy soil characteristics, the dark plum/garnet-colored 1982 possesses opulent, fleshy flavors and a full-bodied finish. All the tannins are resolved, the acidity is low and this deliciously savory, rich wine is in full bloom. Drink the complex, beautiful 1982 now and over the next decade.” R. Parker, 93 pts. 08/11 6 bottles $1,500-2,500 11 Chateau Pavie 1982 St. Emilion u: six into neck, three bottom neck, two very top shoulder, nicked and wrinkled labels, three torn labels, lightly bin-soiled labels 11 bottles $1,100-1,650 12 Chateau Ausone 1982 St. Emilion u: four bottom neck, six very top shoulder, one top shoulder, nicked capsules, lightly binsoiled labels, one stained label 11 bottles $4,400-6,600

13 Chateau Cheval Blanc 1982 St. Emilion u: nine into neck, one bottom neck, lightly binsoiled labels, three lightly stained labels 10 bottles $7,000-10,000 14 Vieux Chateau Certan 1982 Pomerol u: six bottom neck, six very top shoulder, lightly bin-soiled labels R. Parker, 93 pts. 06/09 12 bottles $1,800-2,500 15 Antonin Rodet Richebourg 1985 Cote de Nuits u: 2.0cm or better, very lightly bin-soiled labels 12 bottles $700-1,000

In a mere seventeen lots, this collector shows great diversity in collecting with a passion for Napa Cabernet. Maintained in ideal storage conditions. 24 Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1982 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe u: into neck “This wine remains one of the legends of Bordeaux. It has thrown off the backward, youthful style that existed during its first 25 years of life, and over the last 4-5 years has developed such secondary nuances as cedar and spice box. The creme de cassis, underlying floral note, full-bodied power, extraordinary purity, multilayered texture, and finish of over a minute are a showcase for what this Chateau accomplished in 1982. The wine is still amazingly youthful, vibrant, and pure. It appears capable of remaining fruity and vibrant in 2082! Thank God it is beginning to budge, as I would like to drink most of my supply before I kick the bucket. This is a great, still youthful wine, and, on occasion, one does understand the hierarchy of Bordeaux chateaux when you see the complexity and brilliance of this first-growth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050+” R. Parker, 100 pts. 06/09 2 bottles $1,600-2,400 25 Chateau Leoville Las Cases 1982 St. Julien, 2eme Cru Classe u: into neck 2 bottles $600-900 26 Chateau d’Yquem 1983 u: bottom neck 1983 (demi) u: bottom neck Chateau de Fargues 1975 u: bottom neck “The 1983 ranks among the most concentrated wines from this property over the last 25 years, with a staggering display of extract and a mind-boggling amount of glycerin. The vintage commenced early for d’Yquem, beginning on September 29th and finishing on November 18th. The 1983 is enormous, with huge, honeyed, pineapple, coconut, and caramel flavors, massive extract, and an unctuous quality barely framed by acidity and new oak. The wine has changed little since bottling. Anticipated maturity: 20002050.” R. Parker, 96 pts. 08/93 2 bottles and 1 demi bottle $450-600 27 Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon Rose 1985 Epernay 1 bottle $400-600 28 Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 1985 Reims 1 bottle $150-250

Leoville Las Cases (LLC) is a St. Julien in name only—not that there is anything wrong with that. This wine is generally quite well-endowed and possessing dramatic depth. LLC is quite a large property on the river side of the north-south road from the city of Bordeaux. Leoville Barton and Leoville Poyferre were cleaved off at various times in history…further validation that this is a most special site (“terrior” in French). –PhM

41 Chateau Leoville Las Cases 1994 St. Julien, 2eme Cru Classe “Michel Delon, a great man, is the consummate proprietor, meticulously administering this vast estate spread out along the St.-Julien/Pauillac border, separated from Latour’s finest vineyard by a mere ten feet. The 1993-95 vintages from Delon are brilliant wines. Leoville-Las-Cases remains one of the irrefutable reference points for high class Bordeaux. One of the more massive Medocs of the vintage, this opaque purple-colored wine exhibits fabulous richness and volume in the mouth. Layers of pure black-cherry and cassis fruit are intermixed with stony, minerallike scents, as well as high quality toasty oak. Medium to full-bodied, with a sweet, rich entry, this wine possesses plenty of tannin, yet fabulous extract and length. Leoville-LasCases is one of the half-dozen great wines of the Medoc in 1994. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025. This lion never falls asleep on the job!” R. Parker, 93 pts. 02/97 12 bottles (owc) $800-1,200

42 Chateau Pontet Canet 2003 Pauillac, 5eme Cru Classe “One of the great successes of the vintage and certainly one of the most profound Pontet-Canets made over the last decade is the 2003. Deep purple to the rim with a glorious nose of scorched earth, black currant jam, smoke, licorice, and roasted meats, it is full-bodied, incredibly powerful, dense, with low acidity but high tannin, broad-shouldered, and savory. This is a stunning, pure, classic Pontet-Canet that should be at its best between 2010 and 2035.” R. Parker, 95 pts. 04/06 12 bottles $800-1,200 43 Reserve de la Comtesse 2003 Pauillac 12 bottles (owc) $300-500 44 Chateau Monbousquet 2000 St. Emilion R. Parker, 93 pts. 06/10 9 bottles $750-1,125 45 Comte de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes 1998 Cote de Nuits “Massive aromas of red and black fruits and a fascinating array of spices and violets with austere yet regal soil inflected flavors of incredible density. This is arguably 100% pure extract of pinot yet the textural impact does not come across as syrupy or viscous. There is superb balance to go with the serious nature of this wine and it simply reeks class. Wine simply doesn’t get much better. It is Musigny such as this that forcefully puts forth the question as to whether this isn’t the greatest dirt in all of Burgundy (there are of course rebuttals to the question but not many).” Burghound, 95 pts. 01/01 4 bottles $1,200-1,600


46 Comte de Vogue Bonnes Mares 2001 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 93 pts. 01/04 4 bottles $800-1,200 47 Comte de Vogue Bonnes Mares 2003 Cote de Nuits 1 bottle $150-200 48 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 2001 Cote de Nuits “Saturated deep ruby color. Explosive black raspberry fruit and, spicy, pungent, thick almost liqueur-like flavors with lots of sweet pinot sap, buried tannins and excellent length. It is very ripe, powerful and remains beautifully elegant with flavors that display incredibly gorgeous texture as in satin and lace. Almost irresistible now yet it should benefit from 7 to 8 years in the cellar.” Burghound, (91-94) pts. 01/03 1 bottle $250-400 49 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 2002 Cote de Nuits “Aromatically reserved and backward with elegant and very fresh and pure red and black pinot fruit aromas nuanced by subtle spice notes. The medium full flavors are ripe, sexy and supple yet deliver excellent precision, impeccable balance and an attractive mineral streak than gives both lift and firmness to the wonderfully long finish. This is a lively effort that is underpinned by dense and firm yet remarkably fine tannins. I quite like this as the grace and class of its origins are plain to see. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes.” Burghound 92 pts. 03/07 6 bottles $500-750 50 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 1999 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 91 pts. 12/11 4 bottles $400-600

51 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 1998 Cote de Nuits “Very ripe and now largely mature but elegant fruit that has a hint of cranberry and raspberry liqueur notes that introduce quite rich, full and naturally sweet medium weight flavors that possess a sappy and seductive texture and excellent length. If there is a small nit, this is not exceptionally complex but the balance is impeccable and this should continue to age effortlessly even though it can certainly be approached now with pleasure.” Burghound, 92 pts. 07/09 6 bottles $600-900 52 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 2003 (3 bts) Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 2003 (3 bts) Cote de Nuits 6 bottles $425-600 53 Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges Les St. Georges 1996 Cote de Nuits 6 bottles $300-400 54 Groffier Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 1993 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 90 pts. 04/06 6 bottles $1,000-1,500 55 Meo Camuzet Clos de Vougeot 2000 Cote de Nuits one torn capsule, lightly scuffed labels 12 bottles $1,000-1,500 56 Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes 1995 Cote de Nuits 6 bottles $600-900

58 Louis Latour Corton Charlemagne 2001 Cote de Beaune 12 bottles (owc) $500-700 59 Dauvissat Chablis La Forest 2006 Chablis “A notably ripe nose that reflects both the classic aromas of green fruit, oyster shell and iodine hints as well as certain exotic fruit hints while complementing to perfection the rich, full and well-muscled flavors that remain refined, pure and textured only to explode on the wonderfully intense and persistent finish. I really like the sappiness here as it gives a silky texture to the mid-palate. In a word, terrific.” Burghound, 92 pts. 10/08 12 bottles (oc) $200-300 60 Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle 1998 Northern Rhone 12 bottles (owc) $600-800 61 E.

64 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne 1990 Reims “The 1990 Comtes de Champagne captures a stylistic middle ground between the 1988 and 1990. Slightly advancing tones of orange peel and roasted nuts are beautifully contrasted by a streak of minerality that gives the wine its freshness and verve. Bright floral and mineral notes reappear on the finish, adding focus. Rich in its texture yet effortless, the 1990 offers exceptional balance and tons of class. It should continue to drink well for another 15 years.” A. Galloni for R.

The nose begins a little mute with a suggestion of freshly crushed blackberries and blackcurrants, forest floor, cinnamon and a touch of loam. The palate is wonderfully concentrated with layers of macerated blackberry, cloves, vanilla and dark chocolate. A medium+ level of acidity and medium to firm fine and ripe tannins give excellent structure to the richness of flavours. Very long finish.” L. Perrotti-Brown for R.

Property of a Wellesley Gentleman removed by Skinner Specialists from custom, temperaturecontrolled home storage and professional, climate-controlled wine storage, this selection represents just a fraction of a much larger, carefully crafted collection. Featuring a custom case of 1996 Bordeaux (see photo) and a solid case of the formidable 2000 Latour, the following lots offer a glimpse into the collection of a seasoned connoisseur.

As I indicated last year, only 38% of the crop was deemed grand enough to be put into the final blend, which is atypically high in Cabernet Sauvignon (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot). This massive wine may be the biggest, largest-scaled Lafite I have ever tasted. It will require many years to come around, so I suspect all of us past the age of fifty might want to give serious consideration as to whether we should be laying away multiple cases of this wine. It is also the first Lafite-Rothschild to be put into a new engraved bottle (designed to prevent fraudulent imitations). The wine exhibits a thick-looking, ruby/purple color, and a knockout nose of lead pencil, minerals, flowers, and black currant scents. Extremely powerful and full-bodied, with remarkable complexity for such a young wine, this huge Lafite is oozing with extract and richness, yet has managed to preserve its quintessentially elegant personality. This wine is even richer than it was prior to bottling. It should unquestionably last for 40-50 years. Anticipated maturity: 20122050. The wine of the vintage?” R.

72 Chateau Latour 2000 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe “The 2000 Latour (a relatively abundant 14,000 cases compared to what they produced in 2009, 2008, or 2005) is ‘packed and stacked.’ The extremely rich, black/purple color to the rim is followed by a wine with some subtle smoke, loads of minerals, a hint of vanilla, and plenty of creme de cassis as well as roasted meat and a slight scorched earth character. Broad, savory, and rich, the wine seems to be about 5 years away from full maturity and should drink well for at least 40-50 more years. A great effort, probably eclipsed only by 2003 and 2009.” R Parker, 98 pts. 06/10 12 bottles (owc) $12,000-14,000 73 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 1999 Pessac Leognan, Cru Classe 12 bottles (owc) $1,800-2,400 74 Chateau Figeac 1990 St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru u: into neck 1 bottle $125-200 75 Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon 1996 Northern Rhone four wine-stained labels “The 1996 Hermitage Le Pavillon needs at least a decade of cellaring. The wine possesses a saturated black/purple color, in addition to fabulously sweet aromas of blackberries, framboise, blueberries, violets, roasted herbs, and meats. Massively concentrated and full-bodied, with staggering levels of extract, this wine is super pure, with high tannin, good but not intrusive acidity, and a 45-second finish. This is one of the superstars of the vintage in France!” R. Parker, 96 pts. 02/99 12 bottles (in two six-bottle owcs, one with damaged lid) $1,200-1,800

The character here is completely different than that of the RSV because while the muscle of the RSV is more like that of a world-class gymnast, here it is body builder-like without being coarse or inelegant. Most impressive and this is a bit like the GE in that the natural elegance of the ‘06 vintage has tamed somewhat the inherent tendency for there to be a certain robustness in Richebourg to create a harmonious whole. Now that the wine is in bottle, it struck me as a block of stone from which only the vaguest outlines of the final form of the statue have yet to emerge. Superb potential.” Burghound, 95 pts. 01/09 1 bottle $750-1,000 78 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee St. Vivant 2002 Cote de Nuits Bottle no. 02207 “Highly aromatic, indeed almost kaleidoscopic in the sheer breadth of aromas but it’s the spice that is so remarkable though it is now cut with floral and stem hints that add depth. The medium-bodied flavors are quite fine with beautiful detail, indeed they are chiseled, and a drop dead gorgeous velvety texture that is soft in the middle yet quite firm on the exceptionally long finish that still displays the slightest hint of wood. The overall character here is rather discreet and understated and while there is plenty of character, it’s clear that this is built along the lines of elegance and finesse. In this format, this should require most of 20 years to arrive at its peak.” Burghound, 95 pts. 06/09 1 bottle $700-1,000

79 Clos des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape 2007 Southern Rhone cracked wax capsule “Paul Avril was a bigger-than-life vigneron, a visionary, and a great teacher, but Vincent has been in charge for a number of years, and he has rewarded his father with what I believe is the greatest Chateauneuf du Pape made since 1978 and 1990, the 2007. I have not only tasted this wine at the estate, but I purchased it for my cellar, and have now drunk it on three separate occasions out of bottle. It is unquestionably one of the great Chateauneufs of my lifetime, and I suspect it will merit a three digit score after another 3-4 years of cellaring. The blend is generally 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and the rest small amounts of Muscardin, Vaccarese, Counoise, and Syrah. It exhibits what is probably the deepest color I have ever seen here, and the finished alcohol is a high (for Clos des Papes) 15.5%. Still slightly restrained because of its recent bottling, but wow, what potential complexity, mind-boggling richness, and compelling flavor profile are apparent. It is a sublime expression of the art of winemaking as evidenced by its dense purple color and big, sweet kiss of kirsch, framboise, blackberries, licorice, roasted herbs, and smoked meat. It hits the palate with a fascinating combination of substance, power, full-bodied authority yet extraordinary freshness, elegance, and precision. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and watch it unleash its glory over the next three decades. This is a prodigious wine of great quality from one of the most important reference point estates in Chateauneuf du Pape.” R. Parker, 99+ pts. 10/09 1 double magnum $450-600 80 Krug Brut 1996 Reims “The 1996 Krug Vintage remains one of the greatest Champagnes ever made. It is also far less expensive than either the Clos du Mesnil or Clos d’Ambonnay but equally as delicious. This bottle is stratospheric, with layers of explosive fruit that flow effortlessly to the multidimensional, captivating finish. It is another eternal Champagne from Krug.” A. Galloni for R. Parker, 98 pts. 07/11 12 bottles $3,000-5,000

A collection of mature Gaja. Featuring outstanding vintages like 1978 and 1985, the quantity of Gaja in this northern Massachusetts collection is staggering, but don’t lose sight of the other knockouts like the 1982 Latour. Removed by Skinner Specialists from ideal cellar conditions. 81 Chateau Latour 1982 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe u: four very top shoulder, three top shoulder, one high shoulder, light wear to capsules, lightly bin-soiled labels “Always somewhat atypical (which I suspect will be the case with the more modern day 2003), the 1982 Latour has been the most opulent, flamboyant, and precocious of the northern Medocs, especially the St.-Juliens, Pauillacs, and St.-Estephes. It hasn’t changed much over the last 10-15 years, revealing sweet tannins as well as extraordinarily decadent, even extravagant levels of fruit, glycerin, and body. It is an amazing wine, and on several occasions, I have actually picked it as a right bank Pomerol because of the lushness and succulence of the cedary, blackberry, black currant fruit. This vintage has always tasted great, even in its youth, and revealed a precociousness that one does not associate with this Chateau. However, the 1982 is still evolving at a glacial pace. The concentration remains remarkable, and the wine is a full-bodied, exuberant, rich, classic Pauillac in its aromatic and flavor profiles. It’s just juiced up (similar to an athlete on steroids) and is all the better for it. This remarkable effort will last as long as the 1982 Mouton, but it has always been more approachable and decadently fruity. Drink it now, in 20 years, and in 50 years! Don’t miss it if you are a wine lover.” R.

Gaja – The Gaja family has been producing wine in Piedmont for over 150 years, with the winery being founded in 1859. Angelo Gaja, the greatgrandson of the winery’s founder, began working in earnest at the winery in 1961 and through introducing international viticultural and vinification techniques is widely credited with revolutionizing Italy’s wine production. A visionary modernist in a staunchly traditional region, Gaja has found ways to bend the rules slightly to emphasize both the quality of his own portfolio as well as bring all of Italian wine to the international conversation. For example, when he found that the international community was focused on the nuances between his various single-vineyard offerings and had the notion that his flagship offering was “just” Barbaresco, he reclassified the single-vineyard wines of Sori Tildin, Sori San Lorenzo and Costa Russi to Langhe Nebbiolo DOC, removing “Barbaresco” from the labels so that his portfolio only reflects one, single Barbaresco offering which he felt did justice to his family’s long history in the region. Here is an amazing offering of Gaja in quantity, with such excellent vintages as 1978 and 1985 (commended by Wine Spectator as “the finest wines ever made in Italy”). Don’t let this opportunity slip away!

Impressive Bordeaux and a focus on white Burgundy from the local cellar of true Connsoisseurs. Maintained in climatecontrolled storage. 104 Chateau Latour 1999 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe “Readers looking for a modern day version of Latour’s magnificent 1962 or 1971 should check out the sensational 1999 Latour. It is a big, concentrated offering, exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color, and a classic nose of minerals, black currants, leather, and vanilla. The wine is long, ripe, and mediumbodied, with high levels of sweet tannin. This surprisingly full, concentrated 1999 should be drinkable in 5-6 years; it will last for three decades.” R. Parker, 94 pts. 04/02 6 bottles $1,800-2,400 105 Chateau L’Evangile 2000 Pomerol “This is an absolutely spectacular L’Evangile. It remains to be seen whether 2009 will eclipse this great effort. Largely a Merlot-dominated blend with some Cabernet Franc in it, the greatness of this terroir is exhibited in the complexity of the nose, which offers up hints of subtle chocolate, blueberry, blackberry, truffle, barbecue smoke, and graphite. Dense, rich, and full-bodied, with an opulence and succulence that are prodigious, the tannins are present but extremely sweet, and the wine multi-dimensional and just emerging as a compellingly complex, head-turning beauty. Drink it now and over the next 20-25 years. Kudos to L’Evangile.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 06/10 12 bottles (owc) $2,000-3,000

106 Bouchard Montrachet 2004 Cote de Beaune “This has begun to open though it still requires some vigorous swirling to coax the reluctant white flower, ripe orchard fruit and spice notes to reveal themselves yet the massive flavors are concentrated with a powerfully focused finish brimming with minerality that is almost painful as it etches itself into the palate. This is big and intense but focused and actually comes across almost like a great ChevalierMontrachet at present with perfect balance and this should prove to be a long distance runner. In a word, magnificent.” Burghound, 96 pts. 08/08 12 bottles (owc, no lid) $2,000-3,000

109 Leflaive Batard Montrachet 2002 Cote de Beaune “An expressive, elegant and pure nose of spice, white flower and green fruit aromas are followed by dense, big, rich and explosive fullbodied flavors that are blessed with abundant dry extract and a finish that won’t quit. Not withstanding all of the size and weight, this is impeccably balanced and overall, this continues to display that “wow” factor. Note that like many ‘02s at this point, the ‘02 Bâtard could certainly be drunk with pleasure but for my taste, I would suggest a few more years in the cellar first. Consistent notes.” Burghound, 94 pts. 05/10 6 bottles $1,800-2,700

107 Vincent Girardin Batard Montrachet 2004 Cote de Beaune “This is aromatically quite reserved with only trace amount of wood influence visible on the white flower and spiced pear suffused nose that carries into the rich, robust and powerful flavors that possess real size, weight and punch and this too displays a wonderful sense of purity and finishing linearity plus there is more minerality than one usually sees in the typical Bâtard.” Burghound, 92-94 pts. 07/06 3 bottles $225-375

110 Michel Niellon Batard Montrachet 2000 Cote de Beaune Tasting Note: “(with thanks to Douglas Barzelay). Initially there is a hint of reduction but with 10 minutes of aeration, it dissipates to reveal really lovely and beautifully layered aromas that are now displaying moderate secondary influences that also extend to the big, rich and bold medium plus weight flavors that possess solid dry extract that coats the palate on the driving, energetic and still impressively vibrant finish. The balance is impeccable and while there does not appear to be any significant upside remaining, neither is there any rush to drink up as this should continue to effortlessly hold for another 10 to 15 years.” Burghound, 93 pts. 10/10 5 bottles $1,000-1,500

108 Comtes Lafon Meursault Les Perrieres 2002 Cote de Beaune “The nose here is elegance personified with honeysuckle, green apple and limestone aromas merging seamlessly into impressively precise, crisp and medium full flavors that pack absolutely superb mid-palate punch, the intensity of which continues into the extended palate staining finish. The flavors are quite powerful, firm and crystalline, underscored by pronounced and ripe acidity buffered by a lovely touch of sweet and sappy extract. Simply beautiful juice that arguably possesses the best balance of any wine here.” Burghound, 93 pts. 07/05 2 bottles $600-900

111 Ramonet Batard Montrachet 2001 Cote de Beaune Tasting Note: “(with thanks to Dr. Michael Chen). In magnum format this is not all that dissimilar to my original note that is now almost 10 years old as the wonderfully complex and elegant aromas of white flower and citrus remain as fresh as ever. Likewise, there is still plenty of vibrancy and intensity to the gorgeously pure and well-delineated medium full flavors that seem as though they’re chiseled directly from solid rock. This is much more mineral-driven than the typical Bâtard, and blind I would have mistaken it for a classically styled Chevalier. There is plenty of punch and racy supporting acidity plus simply knockout length. Of all these impressive attributes though, it’s the stunning purity and overall harmony of expression that make this one of the greatest examples of Bâtard from the 2001vintage. As to drinkability, it can be approached now with pleasure because while there is still some unrealized upside development present, there isn’t so much that it would be infanticide to open one now. In a word, terrific.” Burghound, 95 pts. 04/12 1 bottle $175-250

Screaming Eagle – make your own vertical. From the climate-controlled cellar of a serious East Coast collector. Screaming Eagle could only be a California story. Over the span of a decade a tiny winery progresses from inception to becoming one of the most valuable and coveted bottles in the world. Gorgeously lush and hedonistic, the miniscule production adds to the wines tantalizing allure. Screaming Eagle represents the founder’s unrelenting belief that the estate’s soils are distinct from the rest of the Napa Valley. –PhM 114 Screaming Eagle 1996 Napa Valley “The newly-released 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals lots of structure, an opaque purple color, and the hallmark blackberry and cassis liqueur-like notes. Silky-textured, fabulously-concentrated, and gorgeouslybalanced, it has every component part— acidity, alcohol, tannin, and extract—flawlessly presented.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 01/00 1 bottle $1,500-2,000 115 Screaming Eagle 1997 Napa Valley “It doesn’t get any better than 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon, a perfect wine. Representing the essence of cassis liqueur intermixed with blackberries, minerals, licorice, and toast, this full-bodied, multi-dimensional classic is fabulous, with extraordinary purity, symmetry, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. It has the overall equilibrium to evolve for nearly two decades, but it will be hard to resist upon release.” R. Parker, 100 pts. 01/00 1 bottle $2,400-3,250

Parker, 95 pts. 12/08 1 bottle $1,000-1,500 118 Screaming Eagle 2005 Napa Valley “The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, which I loved last year, has gotten even better, something I saw across the board with the bottled 2005s (a superb year for Bordeaux varietals). This blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc was aged in 67% new French oak for 21 months. It possesses a gorgeous, Pauillac-like bouquet of cedar, creme de cassis, licorice, smoke, and earth as well as sweet tannins, full body, fabulous layers of fruit, a noble sweetness, and outstanding length. This 2005 can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 12/08 1 bottle $1,400-2,000 119 Screaming Eagle 2006 Napa Valley “The consistently beautiful 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense black/purple color as well as that classic Screaming Eagle nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, and a hint of licorice. A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot, this beauty should age effortlessly for 20-25 years.” R. Parker, 95 pts. 12/09 1 bottle $1,000-1,500

120 Screaming Eagle 2007 Napa Valley “The most profound Screaming Eagle since the 2002 and 1997, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (an 800-case blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc) offers up a prodigiously pure, complex nose of cassis, spring flowers, licorice and black currants, the latter component being so intense and lingering that it makes this cuvee stand apart from other Napa Valley wines. Full-bodied in the mouth, like a ballerina on her toes, this wine glides gracefully across the palate with a cascade of purity, equilibrium and compelling complexity. Extraordinary balance and elegance combined with power make for an utterly stunning wine that should drink well for two decades or more. Even though the estate is being reconstituted and a new winery built, this wine still came from the old sector of the vineyard (15.5 acres) that was used by the previous proprietor, Jean Phillips.” R. Parker, 100 pts. 12/10 1 bottle $1,600-2,200 121 Screaming Eagle 2008 Napa Valley ‘The 2008 Screaming Eagle is a model of elegance. Endless layers of sweet, perfumed fruit caress the palate in this captivating, utterly seductive wine. The finesse and silkiness of the tannin is something that is truly unique among the world’s great wines. If Grand Cru Burgundy were made in Napa Valley, it would taste like Screaming Eagle. A delicate, classy finish lets the sheer purity of the fruit come through beautifully here. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.” A. Galloni for R. Parker, 97 pts. 12/11 1 bottle $1,200-1,800 122 Screaming Eagle 2009 Napa Valley “The 2009 Screaming Eagle is insanely beautiful. It is a relatively open vintage that nevertheless possesses stunning intensity, depth and elegance. Dark red berries, flowers, mint and spices are all woven together beautifully. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the long, seductive finish. The 2009 continues to flesh out in the glass. All of the elements are in the right place in the drop-dead gorgeous, stunning 2009. A haunting bouquet reminiscent of a great Musigny lingers on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.” A. Galloni for R. Parker, 98+ pts. 12/11 1 bottle $1,000-1,500

129 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg 2005 Cote de Nuits “Just as it was last year, this is also very shut down at present though vigorous swirling coaxes superbly elegant and pure aromas that are wonderfully broad and include red, black, blue and violet aromas as well as seemingly a full cupboard of Asian spices that complement to perfection the extremely rich, full and sweet flavors that are quite floral in the mouth, all wrapped in a detailed and punchy finish where the tannic spine is completely buried. While it sounds moderately odd to describe it this way, there is a swagger to the ‘05 Riche and this will clearly be one very long distance runner. The other aspect that is notable is how intensely mineral-driven the ‘05 Riche is and interestingly, this seems almost delicate next to the opulence of the RSV. Indeed it’s as though the Riche and RSV have exchanged personalities! A (very high level) qualitative choice but believe me when I say that the underlying characters of these two wines couldn’t be more different.” Burghound, 97 pts. 01/08 6 bottles (owc) $7,200-9,000 130 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee St. Vivant 2000 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 91 pts. 03/05 5 bottles $2,800-3,750 131 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee St. Vivant 2001 Cote de Nuits “This displays a positively classic nose of soaring Asian spices, ripe plum and a gamut of ripe, pure and lacy red and black fruits with the latter predominating all wrapped together with a seductive kiss of sweetly scented, highly perfumed violets; the nose is, in a word, intoxicating. All of this aromatic intensity leads to remarkably powerful, linear, borderline robust flavors that show simply unbelievable complexity and stunning length. This will very likely surpass every other RSV from the Domaine in recent memory. A dazzling effort.

Bernard Dugat-Py and his son Loîc represent the 12th and 13th generation of the winemakers in the lineage that traces back to the middle of 17th century. With experience comes expertise, both of which the family has in spades. These are wines steeped in century’s worth of Burgundian tradition, from hand-selection of organically raised grapes only from vineyards owned by the family, to ageing for up to two years in the vaulted cellars of an abbey in the town of Gevrey-Chambertin, the wines are prepared with the utmost attention and care. Specializing in Vieilles Vignes and Tres Vieilles Vignes – vines from 30 to 99 years old – the wines produced by Dugat-Py require patience, with a minimum of 6 years’ of ageing recommended before approaching even their village-level wines. 133 Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2005 Cote de Nuits 6 bottles $350-550 134 Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2006 Cote de Nuits 5 bottles $150-200 135 Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2007 Cote de Nuits 6 bottles $300-450 136 Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin-Premier Cru Lavaux St. Jacques 2004 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 91-94 pts. 01/06 3 bottles $200-300 137 Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru Petite Chappelle 2004 Cote de Nuits 3 bottles $450-600 138 Dugat-Py Gevrey Chambertin Coeur de Roy Tres Vieilles Vignes 2005 Cote de Nuits 3 bottles $175-275

Lafon – Through the combined efforts of Rene and Dominique Lafon, the entirety of the 13.8 hectares of the Lafon Estate has been brought under exclusive control of the Domaine des Comtes Lafon. The quality of the wines produced has risen sharply with Lafon’s expressions of Chardonnay widely regarded as some of the finest in Burgundy. 145 Comtes Lafon Meursault 2004 Cote de Beaune 12 bottles $725-1,075 146 Comtes Lafon Meursault 2005 Cote de Beaune 10 bottles $500-750 147 Comtes Lafon Meursault 2006 Cote de Beaune 5 bottles $250-375 148 Comtes Lafon Meursault Clos de La Barre 2004 Cote de Beaune 11 bottles $550-825 149 Comtes Lafon Meursault Clos de La Barre 2005 Cote de Beaune Burghound, 91 pts. 01/08 6 bottles $550-850

Comte de Vogue – With family ties in Chambolle stretching back an incredible 550 years, it goes without saying that Vogue is virtually synonymous with Musigny and ChambolleMusigny. With an approach that emphasizes the influence of nature rather than the influences of man – only 30-40% of the Grands Crus are aged in new oak to limit the effect of wood and highlight the fruit – the wines are considered among the finest expressions of Pinot Noir in the world. The Chambolle-Musigny is effectively a declassified blend of two Premier Cru vineyards with vines averaging 45 and 54 years old, respectively. The Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru, introduced in 1995, contains no wine from Premier Cru vineyards – instead, the juice is from declassified Grand Cru grapes selected from “young” vines averaging 25 years in the Musigny vineyard. 157 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 2003 Cote de Nuits 6 bottles $425-600 158 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 2004 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 92 pts. 01/07 2 bottles $150-200 159 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 2005 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 93 pts. 01/08 6 bottles $750-1,050 160 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 2006 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 94 pts. 01/09 3 bottles $300-450 161 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 2007 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 92 pts. 01/10 5 bottles $500-750

There are only 1,100 cases, and it is the first Harlan Estate to be composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. A spectacular achievement, it boasts an opaque plum/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of espresso, mineral, blueberry, blackberry, tobacco, licorice, Asian spice, and roasted meat smells. In the mouth, it is seamless, full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, gorgeously sweet tannin, and layer upon layer of concentration. This is a tour de force in winemaking. It is hard to believe that a wine such as this has emerged from 1998. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2030.” R. Parker, 95 pts. 12/00 1 magnum $700-1,000

176 Harlan Estate 2004 Napa Valley “Very deep garnet-black colour with a purple rim. Though still very youthful and muted, this vintage is already subtly revealing a wide array of aromas including blackberry tart, cedar, violets, truffles, liquorice and all spice. In the mouth however this is no shrinking violet – the ’04 is a big, concentrated and highly structured wine with somewhat impenetrable, tightly grained tannins and medium to high acid supporting its rich weight. Very, very long finish displaying hints of savoury earthiness and that signature minerality that appears to surface in better years. Drink 2009–2030.” L. Perrotti-Brown for R.

Dense plum/purple-colored with sweet aromas of barbecue smoke, blueberries, blackberries, cassis, licorice, hot rocks and subtle oak, it is a splendidly opulent, pure wine with a skyscraper-like texture as well as stunningly deep fruit that expands gracefully across the palate. The finish lasts nearly a full minute. Because of its overwhelming richness and sweet tannins, this brilliant wine seems to be approachable now, but I suspect further nuances and complexity will emerge after 4-5 years in the bottle. This wine will still be going strong at age 25-30. Like the offerings from its sister estate, Bond, these Harlan Estate offerings are uncompromisingly brilliant examples of Napa viticulture and winemaking at its finest. Kudos to proprietor Bill Harlan.” R. Parker, 100 pts. 12/10 12 bottles $6,000-8,400

Kistler – Nearly synonymous with Sonoma, Kistler is well established as one of California’s most popular and successful producers of Bugundy-inspired wines. Founded in 1978, Kistler’s production has steadily increased production since, to a level of nearly 25,000 cases per year. Recent vintages have seen a refinement to the approach of wine making – less French oak, harvesting at lower ripeness and less time in barrel – leading to a reinvention of the Kistler style. 179 Kistler Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard 2004 Sonoma R.

A vineyard founded by an Englishman in California with a female winemaker may have seemed odd in 1982. But Sir Peter Michael spent years searching for the perfect property and that winemaker was none other than Helen Turley (perhaps you’ve heard of her?). With a mix of Bordeaux and Burgundian varieties and a commitment to old-world winemaking practices, the winery has become a wild success and slowly, the family-owned estate is beginning its transition to a second generation, Sir Peter’s son, Paul.

201 Peter Michael Ma Belle Fille 2008 Sonoma “Flamboyant and exotic, the extroverted, exuberant, powerful 2008 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille is a sensational hussy of a wine. Lots of brioche, buttered pastry, lemon oil, tropical fruit, honeysuckle, nectarine and caramelized citrus characteristics soar from the glass of this big, full-bodied, superintense 2008. The oak is hardly noticeable and the acidity and freshness are impressive in spite of the 15.4% alcohol. It is a stunning Chardonnay to drink over the next decade.” R.

The breadth of flavors and incredible texture here is outstanding and the wine offers stunning overall quality. A great wine that is only just now beginning to reveal its full potential and while the tannins are finally beginning to soften, the overall impression is one of notable youthfulness. Even though one could approach this now, it will last for decades.” Burghound, 94 pts. 05/10 1 bottle $1,000-1,500

205 Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache 2003 Cote de Nuits Bottle 02017 “Like the 2005, this really has not changed significantly though at 8 years of age, one can begin to see a subtle amount of aromatic development but I stress that it’s subtle and overall, this remains quite primary aromatically speaking. The usual La Tâche aromatic fireworks are present as the highly perfumed, seductive, spicy and pungent floral notes make for an utterly brilliant nose. The broad-shouldered flavors remain somewhat understated and while there is superb concentration, the unexpected sense of reserve I noted in my original review is still here as there is even a certain coolness that is extremely rare for the 2003 vintage. Perhaps equally unexpected is that the ‘03 La Tâche is essentially a wine that marries finesse and purity with power because even though it is dense, it remains balanced and never heavy. To be sure, the effects of the vintage are noticeable as the finish is very ripe with notes of plum, mocha and coffee. Again, though this is only 8 years of age, nothing has changed to modify my view that this should be capable of lasting 50 years, indeed I have extended my initial drinking window somewhat. As with the 2005, this should ultimately be a great La Tâche though it’s going to require plenty of patience until it gets there.” Burghound, 95 pts. 01/12 1 bottle $1,200-1,800 206 JF Mugnier Chambolle Mugisny Les Amoureuses 2006 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 93 pts. 01/09 1 jeroboam (owc) $1,200-1,800 207 JF Mugnier Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Marechale 2005 Cote de Nuits Burghound, 92 pts. 01/08 1 jeroboam (owc) $325-550

208 Chateau d’Yquem 2001 Sauternes “There are 10,000 cases of this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. The 2001 Yquem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color. While somewhat reticent aromatically, with airing, it offers up honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, sweet creme brulee, and buttered nut-like scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration and unctuosity. Everything is uplifted and given laser-like focus by refreshing acidity. This large-scaled, youthful Yquem appears set to take its place among the most legendary vintages of the past, and will age effortlessly for 75+ years.

212 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 1977 Oporto u: into neck, torn and bin-soiled label “This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. Their tawnys are also among the very best, though somewhat expensive. The 1977 has consistently been at the top of my list of vintage ports in this great vintage, although the Dow, Graham, and Fonseca are equally splendid. It is a mammoth, opaque, statuesque vintage port of remarkable depth and power, but is should not be touched before 2000.” R.

This full-bodied, fabulously rich Syrah is a superb success for the vintage.” R. Parker, 96 pts. 08/07 1 magnum $175-250

In a less than perfect Medoc vintage, it has been spectacular since birth, putting on more weight and flesh over the last year. This opaque purple-colored 1998 is close to perfection. The spectacular nose of lead pencil, smoky, mineral, and black currant fruit soars majestically from the glass. The wine is elegant yet profoundly rich, revealing the essence of Lafite’s character. The tannin is sweet, and the wine is spectacularly layered yet never heavy. The finish is sweet, superrich, yet impeccably balanced and long (50+ seconds).” R.

220 Chateau Haut Brion 1998 Pessac Leognan, 1er Cru Classe “As reported over the last two years, this is a prodigious Haut-Brion. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a tight, but incredibly promising nose of smoke, earth, minerals, lead pencil, black currants, cherries, and spice. This full-bodied wine unfolds slowly, but convincingly on the palate, revealing a rich, multi-tiered, stunningly pure, symmetrical style with wonderful sweetness, ripe tannin, and a finish that lasts for nearly 45 seconds. It tastes like liquid nobility. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2035.” R. Parker, 96 pts. 04/01 2 bottles $600-800 221 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 2000 Pessac Leognan “One of the wines of the vintage, the 2000 has barely budged in its evolution since it was bottled and released in 2002. After ten years in bottle, it still reveals a dense opaque purple color along with a potentially sensational bouquet of blueberries, black currants, graphite, asphalt and background oak. Extremely powerful, full-bodied and superbly concentrated with good acidity and high but round tannins, this massive La MissionHaut-Brion should take its place among this estate’s most hallowed vintages when it hits full maturity in another one to two decades. I was surprised by just how youthful this wine tasted at age 12. If tasted blind, I would have guessed it to be around 4 to 5 years old.” R.

Long considered the drink of the English Gentleman, Port has only recently seen any amount of interest from collectors in the US. Much to the chagrin of the select few that knew the heights to which a Port can soar, Port prices began a steady climb starting in the 1980s. Offered here are wines from various shippers from several outstanding vintages.

Utopias – Beer in a wine auction? Surely this must be a mistake. But before you flip the page and dismiss this as a plebian, fizzy yellow beverage, consider: 1. Aged a minimum of 12 months in oak casks, and some casks aged to 16 years 2. Masterfully blended to extract characters of each individual malt 3. Utilizes noble varieties of vine-grown fruit 4. Flavor profile of red fruit, vanilla, toffee 5. Unique glassware produced in conjunction with Austrian producer Riedel If the above notes evoke an image of some Frankenstein-esque blend of Port with Scotch, you may not be far off. Inspired to counter the ever-lightening mass-market beers, Jim Koch of Samuel Adams introduced Utopias to the world in 2002. At the time, it was the strongest beer in the world at a previously-unheard-of 24% abv, achieved through fermentation using a blend of Champagne yeast and a proprietary yeast strain—without the use of freeze-distilling. The ale, extracted from a mash of four malts and brewed with noble hops, is aged in a variety of previously-used bourbon, rum, muscatel, sherry, brandy and Cognac casks before being blended into the final product. Released on an extremely limited basis roughly every two years, each release has distinct characteristics as the casks develop independently. The 2007 batch, offered here, is the highest-alcohol batch to date, weighing in at 27%, an ale to be sipped, considered, discussed and shared rather than tipped back without thought. With this lot, Skinner is proud to confirm that Fine Ales and Lagers are welcome to be auctioned alongside Fine Wines and Spirits and look forward to more in 2013.

Its dark plum/purple color is followed by notes of melted tar intermixed with sweet cassis and floral underpinnings. Very full-bodied and dense for a Chateau Margaux, with a slight rusticity to the tannins, it boasts blockbuster power, richness, and impressive aromatics. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 06/09 2 bottles $1,200-1,800

Cheval Blanc doesn’t scream out for attention, rather it is passionately pursued by a knowing few. Unquestionably worthy of “First Growth” stature. In keeping with the Right Bank scene, the beautiful park-like setting feels surprisingly casual. Formal to a point, but not overly so. Cheval Blanc is comprised of cabernet franc and merlot. The vinous equivalent of grace and good taste. –PhM 257 Chateau Cheval Blanc 1986 St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classe (A) u: ten into neck, two bottom neck, lightly nicked capsules 12 bottles (owc) $2,400-3,600

From a climate-controlled cellar in Massachusetts, picked up by Skinner staff. Also online with lots 716-722. 262 Chateau Latour 1995 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe “A beauty, the opaque dense purple-colored 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanillin, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour. As the wine sat in the glass, scents of roasted espresso and toasty new oak emerged. This classic will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050.” R. Parker, 96 pts. 06/2000 12 bottles $3,500-4,750


258


263 Chateau Angelus 1995 St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classe “A superb effort in this vintage, Angelus’s opaque purple-colored 1995 is a massive, powerful, rich offering with plenty of ripe, sweet tannin. The wine’s aromatics include scents of Provencal olives, jammy black cherries, blackberries, truffles, and toast. A very full-bodied wine, it is layered, thick, and pure. This is the most concentrated of the 1995 St.-Emilion premier grand crus. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.” R. Parker, 95 pts. 02/98 11 bottles $2,500-3,200

267 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2000 Oporto “Among the most saturated blue/purple/blackcolored examples of the vintage, Taylor’s 2000 tastes like a young vintage of Chateau Latour on steroids. Aromas of graphite, blackberry liqueur, creme de cassis and smoke jump from the glass. Spectacularly concentrated and enormously endowed, with sweetness allied to ripe tannin, decent acidity, and layer upon layer of fruit and extract, this is the leading candidate for the port of the vintage.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 10/02 11 bottles $650-925

264 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape 2001 Southern Rhone “Beaucastel has been on a terrific qualitative roll over the last four vintages, and the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (which Francois Perrin feels is similar to the 1990, although I don’t see that as of yet) is a 15,000-case blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance split among the other permitted varietals of the appellation. This inky/ruby/purple-colored cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cherry fruit. It is a superb, earthy expression of this Mourvedre-dominated cuvee. Full-bodied and powerful, it will undoubtedly close down over the next several years, not to re-emerge for 7-8 years. Anticipated maturity: 20082025.” R. Parker, 96 pts. 02/04 12 bottles (owc) $800-1,200

268 Dominus 2001 Napa Valley “A brilliant showing for Christian Moueix’s well-known Napanook Vineyard, the 2001 Dominus is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. A classic in the making, this is a flawless, seamless example of elegant, complex Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that possesses a Bordeaux-like personality. This gorgeous, sexy, opulent, dense ruby/ purple-colored wine reveals sweet caramel, mocha, creme de cassis and kirsch notes intermixed with a hint of espresso roast as well as underbrush. Ripe, long and full-bodied with well-integrated tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood, this prodigious 2001 is drinkable now and over the next 25+ years given this estate’s longevity track record. A virtually perfect wine, it is one of the most complex 2001s at present.” R. Parker, 98 pts. 06/11 6 bottles (owc) $600-900

265 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape 2003 Southern Rhone 12 bottles (owc, no lid) $500-700 266 Fonseca Vintage Port 2000 Oporto “Dense ruby/purple-colored, with an exotic, exuberant perfume of black fruits, flowers, incense, and licorice, this unctuouslytextured, full-bodied port is one of the most concentrated of the vintage. Sweet, expansive, and succulent, this large-scaled, but remarkably well-balanced effort is surprisingly forward and accessible (by Fonseca’s standards).” R. Parker, 95 pts. 10/02 12 bottles (owc) $400-600

36

269 Dominus 2002 Napa Valley “This 2002 was virtually perfect when I tasted it in early May. Even better than I predicted seven years ago, this 4,500-case blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot has blossomed beautifully, revealing even greater intensity and potential than I predicted. A flawless, seamless integration of tannin, wood, alcohol and acidity is found in this dense, plum/purple-colored Dominus, along with copious notes of sweet black currants interwoven with kirsch, forest floor, unsmoked cigar tobacco, new saddle leather and forest floor. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, stunning elegance and a 45-second finish, this sensational 2002 rivals two of the all-time great wines made at Dominus, 1991 and 1994. It is hard to believe that proprietor Christian Moueix’s Dominus Estate has already celebrated its 25th anniversary and is moving toward 30 years with the 2012-2013 vintages. The 2002 will drink well for another 20 years.” R. Parker, 99 pts. 06/12 6 bottles (owc) $600-900

270 Shafer Hillside Select 2003 Napa Valley R. Parker, 95 pts. 12/08 6 bottles (owc) $600-900 271 Shafer Hillside Select 2005 Napa Valley “The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select continues to put on weight, and displays a Bordeaux-like personality because of the vintage’s cool growing season. A black purple color, stunningly sweet fruit, and a gorgeous bouquet of underbrush, forest floor, creme de cassis, lead pencil shavings, and toasty barrique are found in this ripe, full-bodied, deep, stunningly well-balanced, substantial wine with undeniable complexity as well as richness. It is approachable now, but promises to evolve for 25 or more years.” R. Parker, 97 pts. 12/08 6 bottles (owc) $900-1,200

This vintage, which is so variable in Pomerol, St.-Emilion, and Graves, was fabulous for the late-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon of the northern Medoc because of splendid weather in late September and early October. An opaque purple color is followed by phenomenally sweet, pure aromas of cassis infused with subtle minerals. This massive offering possesses unreal levels of extract, full body, intensely ripe, but abundant tannin, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. Classic and dense, it displays the potential for 50-75 years of longevity. Although still an infant, it would be educational to taste a bottle.” R.

The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. Patience is required. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030.” R.

Flaccianello – A 100% Sangiovese from vineyards in Chianti Classico, Flaccianello della Pieve is a force to be reckoned with on the Italian wine scene. While classified as an IGT – because until recently, 100% Sangiovese blends were forbidden in Chianti – the wine is the essence of the region dominated by Sangiovese. Since its introduction in the early 80s, Flaccianello has undergone several changes, including choice of grapes – it used to include up to 15% blended white varieties. Since 1997, ageing in mostly new French oak barrels has lasted a minimum of 18 months and starting in 2001 has become a blend of the best Sangiovese that Fontodi harvests in a given year, rather than being exclusively single-vineyard fruit. The wine is a tour-de-force that will age gracefully for 20 years or more. “The 1997 Flaccianello della Pieve wraps around the palate with endless layers of dark fruit. In 1997 the grapes were very small because the intense heat of the year dehydrated the fruit. Dark red berries, pomegranate, spices, smoke, licorice, anise and rose petals burst from the glass with notable energy, power and grace. Even with all of its intensity, the 1997 is beautifully balanced from start to finish. This racy, full-bodied Flaccianello can be enjoyed today or cellared for up to a decade.” A. Galloni for R.

1974 Heitz Martha’s Vineyard – Widely regarded to be on the short list of best American wines, the 1974 Heitz Martha’s Vineyard has firmly established legendary status. Comparisons to first growth Bordeaux abound, but the wine is the concentrated essence of Napa Valley. In stark contrast to the recent trends of hyper-extraction and oaked fruit bombs that represent current trends of Napa, the 74 Heitz harkens back to the era of when California wines sought to mimic Bordeaux, and arguably, no winery achieved that success better than Heitz. The argument has been made that no California Cabernet has been made that equals this wine, and possibly none ever will.

302 Heitz Cabernet Sauvignon Martha’s Vineyard 1974 Napa Valley u: one into neck, one bottom neck, one nicked label, bin-soiled labels “I had this wine twice over a period of thirty days, rating it an astounding 99 and 98 points. A monumental California Cabernet Sauvignon, it appears to have approached its plateau of maturity but should easily last for 20-25 more years. There is no rust, amber, or brown to the saturated dark purple color. The spectacular, huge, Mouton-Rothschild-like nose of mint, cassis, lead pencil, and toast is remarkably youthful. Staggeringly concentrated, this fullbodied, super-rich wine possesses moderate tannin, fresh, lively acidity, and a blockbuster, rich, fleshy finish. This is a monumental effort!” R.

I have had the wine a half-dozen or more times, and it is unquestionably opulent, sexy, flamboyant, explosively rich, concentrated, and a thrill to drink. Already gorgeous, it promises to evolve gracefully for two decades or more. The color is a healthy saturated dark purple. The spicy nose offers aromas of black currants, allspice, pain grille, and soy, with scents of a burning wood fire thrown in for additional complexity.

It remains to be seen whether vintages such as 1982, 1986, and 1990 will reach a similar height. The super-aromatic bouquet of flowers, black truffles, cedar, lead pencil, and red fruits is followed by one of the most powerful and concentrated Lafites I have tasted. Medium to full-bodied, velvetytextured, rich, and pure, it is a testament to what this great estate can achieve when it hits the mark. This youthful wine will last for another 30 or more years.” R.

1961 is perhaps the last great example of “old school” Bordeaux. Celebrating fifty, across the board theses wines show tremendous depth and richness. They differ greatly from their brethren from 1982 which marked a clear departure into “modern-era” winemaking” –PhM

The depth and breadth of the knowledge of this consignor is rivaled only by the depth and breadth of his cellar. Standouts include mature Petrus, Haut Brion Blanc and bottles of DRC Montrachet and the collection continues online with lots 661-715.

Petrus – In the renowned village of Pomerol, pack-leader Chateau Petrus is unassumingly modest. Close by the road, lacking some formal alley, it is easy to overlook when contrasted with some architecturally grander neighbors. The robin’s-egg blue shutters against the limestone creates a hushed and dignified exterior to the chai. Of course the hedonistic treasures crafted within are anything but reserved… On average, only about 4,000 cases are made each vintage. –PhM 319 Petrus 1974 Pomerol, Cru Exceptionnel u: one bottom neck, one very top shoulder, two top shoulder, one high shoulder, two with signs of old seepage with lightly corroded capsules 5 bottles $3,000-4,500 320 Petrus 1976 Pomerol, Cru Exceptionnel u: top shoulder, lightly worn capsule, very lightly scuffed label 1 bottle $600-800 321 Petrus 1977 Pomerol, Cru Exceptionnel u: bottom neck, worn capsule, retail sticker covering bottom of capsule, label loose at edge 1 bottle $600-800

When first opened, there were slight hints of oxidation yet with air, they blew off to reveal ripe, exotic and fully mature aromas that display completely secondary characteristics (but no sous bois) and lead to rich, full and vibrant full-bodied flavors blessed with buckets of dry extract that are rich to the point of opulence yet the acidity is more than sufficient to maintain excellent balance. For my taste, this has reached its plateau and I see no reason to hold it further; that said, there is no reason to rush to drink up either. In short, a stellar vintage even by the incredibly high standards of this wine. Tasted three times with relatively consistent notes save for one slightly oxidized bottle that may have suffered by less than perfect storage.

This is a big Montrachet and sidles right up to the edge of losing focus yet it never falls over into excess or blowsiness. While the ‘89 Monty is certainly fully ready, it should be capable of holding at this plateau for years to come. Tasted twice recently with consistent results.” Burghound, 95 pts. 10/07 1 bottle $3,750-5,500 331 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino 2004 Tuscany “The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply beautiful. Now that the wine is in bottle it is even better than when I tasted it from barrel. Firm but silky tannins frame a core of ripe dark fruit as this powerful yet elegant Brunello opens up in the glass. Smoke, cured meats, earthiness and graphite develop in the glass, adding further complexity. Sweet roses and spices linger on the long, refined finish. This is a big, structured Brunello, and like all of Abbruzzese’s wines, it needs at least a few years of bottle age before it offers its finest drinking. “ A. Galloni for R.

Deep, dark ruby with a garnet edge, ripe raisin, almond and cedar aromas, full-bodied, with masses of ripe grape and almond flavors and medium tannins that tickle your palate on the finish. Built to age for centuries but amazing to drink now.” J. Suckling for Wine Spectator online, 97 pts. 1989 1 bottle $500-750 337 Promise Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Napa Valley “A staggeringly rich, profound Cabernet Sauvignon has emerged from this producer, simply called Promise. About the only information on the back label is that someone named Steve McPherson has a lot to do with the final product, and congratulations certainly go to him. An absolutely spectacular 2007, this wine has an inky purple color to the rim. Gorgeously pure creme de cassis and black cherry fruit interwoven with hints of lead pencil shavings, burning embers, and spice is followed by a full-bodied, opulent, but at the same time, structured wine. It seems capable of lasting 20-30 or more years. This looks to me like a classic from Napa Valley, and although it is certainly approachable already (as most Napa Cabernets from top years tend to be), there is a long, long life ahead of it. This wine is just – pardon the pun – oh, so promising.” R. Parker, 96 pts. 12/10 6 bottles (owc) $1,000-1,500

Incense, creme de cassis, licorice, toasty oak, and spring flowers are all present in the complex aromatics. In the mouth, the wine is fullbodied, very rich in extract and depth of concentration, but there is a beautiful delineation because of the structural aspects and the sweet tannins, which are present but never aggressive. This is a beauty that should hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for three decades-plus.” R. Parker, 96+ pts. 12/08 3 bottles (oc) $450-750 349 Colgin IX Estate Proprietary Red 2003 R.

This beautiful 2005 is already displaying some secondary nuances, and it should drink splendidly well for 2-3 decades.” R. Parker, 96 pts. 12/08 1 bottle $275-350

369 Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1986 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe u: one into neck, one bottom neck, scuffed capsules “The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep color, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. Patience is required. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030.” R.

Parker, 95 pts. 02/98 4 bottles $2,400-3,250 371 Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1996 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe “Tasted three times since bottling, the 1996 Lafite-Rothschild is unquestionably this renowned estate’s greatest wine. As I indicated last year, only 38% of the crop was deemed grand enough to be put into the final blend, which is atypically high in Cabernet Sauvignon (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot). This massive wine may be the biggest, largest-scaled Lafite I have ever tasted. It will require many years to come around, so I suspect all of us past the age of fifty might want to give serious consideration as to whether we should be laying away multiple cases of this wine. It is also the first Lafite-Rothschild to be put into a new engraved bottle (designed to prevent fraudulent imitations). The wine exhibits a thick-looking, ruby/purple color, and a knockout nose of lead pencil, minerals, flowers, and black currant scents. Extremely powerful and full-bodied, with remarkable complexity for such a young wine, this huge Lafite is oozing with extract and richness, yet has managed to preserve its quintessentially elegant personality. This wine is even richer than it was prior to bottling. It should unquestionably last for 40-50 years. Anticipated maturity: 20122050. The wine of the vintage?” R. Parker, 100 pts. 04/99 1 bottle $750-1,000

372 Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1998 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe “A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, this wine represents only 34% of Lafite’s total harvest. In a less than perfect Medoc vintage, it has been spectacular since birth, putting on more weight and flesh over the last year. This opaque purple-colored 1998 is close to perfection. The spectacular nose of lead pencil, smoky, mineral, and black currant fruit soars majestically from the glass. The wine is elegant yet profoundly rich, revealing the essence of Lafite’s character. The tannin is sweet, and the wine is spectacularly layered yet never heavy. The finish is sweet, superrich, yet impeccably balanced and long (50+ seconds).” R. Parker, 98 pts. 04/01 1 double magnum $2,500-4,500 373 Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1998 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe 2 bottles $1,400-2,200 373A Chateau Latour 1966 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe u: high shoulder, lightly stained label 1 bottle $400-600 374 Chateau Latour 1996 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe “A spectacular Latour, the 1996 may be the modern day clone of the 1966, only riper. This vintage, which is so variable in Pomerol, St.-Emilion, and Graves, was fabulous for the late-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon of the northern Medoc because of splendid weather in late September and early October. An opaque purple color is followed by phenomenally sweet, pure aromas of cassis infused with subtle minerals. This massive offering possesses unreal levels of extract, full body, intensely ripe, but abundant tannin, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. Classic and dense, it displays the potential for 50-75 years of longevity. Although still an infant, it would be educational to taste a bottle.” R. Parker, 99 pts. 06/00 6 bottles $3,000-4,000 374A Chateau Latour 1998 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe 3 bottles $1,000-1,400

375 Chateau Latour 2006 Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe “The 2006 Latour performed even better from bottle than from barrel. Only 38% of the production (10,000 cases) made it into the grand vin, a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. From barrel, I thought it was a modern day version of the 1996 or 1986, and certainly the 1996 comparison still holds. I thought it was somewhat austere from barrel, but that is no longer an issue. This is a beautifully rich Chateau Latour boasting a dense ruby/ purple color, a sweet, smoky, charcoal, cassis, graphite, and forest floor-scented nose, full body, an attractive freshness, and sweet, noble tannins. This layered Latour is one of the vintage’s top dozen or so wines. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.” R.

This wine is easily identifiable because of its remarkably exotic, over-ripe, sweet nose of black fruits, coffee, tobacco, mocha, and Asian spices. It is an extraordinarily dense, opulent, and rich wine, with layers of creamy fruit, behaving more like a 1947 Pomerol than a structured, powerful, and tannic 1945. The wine finishes with a 60+ second display of ripe fruit, extract, and sweet tannin. This remarkably youthful wine (only light amber at the edge) is mindboggling! Will it last another 50 years?” R.

I suppose the 1975 is somewhat similar in style, with high levels of tannin and equally impressive levels of richness. This wine has a dark, murky garnet color with some orange and rust at the edge. The spectacular aromatics soar from the glass, offering up roasted herbs, espresso coffee, mocha, caramel, and plenty of jammy red and black fruits. A huge, viscous, spectacularly concentrated wine that is almost over the top in a style that even wine administrator Christian Moueix would probably find too big and intense for his more delicately styled taste. Nevertheless, lucky owners of this Petrus have decades of thrills still ahead of them. This is spectacular stuff!” R. Parker, 99 pts. 01/03 2 bottles $1,800-2,400

A serious wine that will need at least 15 and probably 20 years to really be at its best but when it arrives, it should more than repay the wait. Note that in my strong opinion it is pointless to purchase this and try to enjoy it young as it really will need extended bottle age to justify the price of admission.” Burghound, 94 pts. 04/08 3 bottles $300-450 397 Delagrange Bachelet Chassagne Montrachet les Caillerets 1981 Cote de Beaune u: three 3.5 cm, three 6.5 cm 6 bottles $300-450 398 Latour Giraud Meursault Genevrieres 1er Cru 2005 Cote de Beaune 6 bottles $600-900 399 Robert Groffier Gevrey Chambertin 2005 Cote de Nuits 12 bottles $300-500

Rich, dense and structured with a finish that is almost painfully intense. Still very young, though more expressive today than the Chambertin, and offers a wonderful combination of power and finesse. There are solid tannins but they are completely buffered by all of the mid-palate sap. An elegant, altogether exquisite Clos de Bèze. Multiple and consistent notes.” Burghound, 95 pts. 08/10 1 bottle $1,200-1,800 404 Comte de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2007 Cote de Nuits “The step up in class is unmistakable with gorgeously complex, even kaleidoscopic and superbly elegant red, black and violet aromas trimmed with a dazzling array of spices, earth and a hint of smoke that adds unmistakable luster to the round, intense, muscular and exceptionally stylish broad-scaled flavors that possess excellent power and a building intensity that develops from the mid-palate to the explosive yet seductive finish. I really like the purity of expression here on the sappy and mineral-infused finish that has a dusty quality from all of the dry extract that coats the firm tannins. This is a big ‘07 built on a base of firm minerality but it remains impeccably well balanced and should live for decades so patience is definitely a virtue if you are a potential buyer.” Burghound, 95 pts. 06/10 3 bottles $900-1,500

405 Comte de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2008 Cote de Nuits “This is also quite reserved at present with an elegant, airy, cool and pure nose that is kaleidoscopically complex as it offers red currant, plum, black cherry and a panoply of floral and spice notes, in particular violet and anise, before marrying seamlessly into mineral-driven and alluring big-bodied flavors that explode on the powerful and almost painfully intense finish that delivers genuinely stunning length. I love the way Musigny can so effortlessly combine a silky palate impression with serious muscle. This should be quite impressive in time though note that it will need a minimum of 18 to 25 years of cellar time.” Burghound, 96 pts. 01/11 6 bottles $2,000-3,000 405A Mas de Boislauzon Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet 2007 Southern Rhone 4 bottles $500-750 406 E.

Sweet roses, menthol, tar, licorice and minerals come together in a sensual, elegant style that recalls Giacosa’s legendary 1989 Riserva Collina Rionda, a wine many observers (this one included) place at the top of the hierarchy of all-time legendary Barolos. Ripe, sensual, and utterly spellbinding, the 2004 Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto offers superb elegance and pedigree. At this stage the wine remains surprisingly accessible. Readers will want to taste the 2004 Rocche as soon as possible as it will almost certainly head for a long period of dormancy in the near future. This magical Barolo will likely merit a perfect score in the future. The 2004 Rocche is the last wine Giacosa and former longtime oenologist Dante Scaglione produced together from start to finish and it is an appropriate bookend to a wonderful partnership that yielded so many profound wines.” A.

Chalone – The Judgment of Paris firmly established California in the upper echelon of the wine world. While most of the attention was focused on the top wines of the tasting, lost in the drama and gravity of the event is the fact that for the Chardonnay tasting, all the first place votes went to two American wines: the winner, Chateau Montelena and the third-place finisher, Chalone Vineyards. Chalone has a storied history, tracing its roots back to the late 19th century, planted by a Frenchman who thought the soil resembled that of Burgundy. In the mid-60s, the vineyard changed hands and legendary California producer Richard Graff set out, with the help of his brothers, to create Burgundian style wines in California, complete with barrel fermentation. Chalone Vineyards grew dramatically over the years, encompassing six California wineries as well as wineries in Oregon and Washington and nearly a quarter of Duhart-Milon before being acquired by Diageo in 2005. 956 Chalone Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir 2001 Monterey 9 bottles $150-250 957 Chalone Vineyards Reserve Estate Pinot Noir 1994 Monterey 11 bottles $225-325

Ullage (Level of Wine) Illustration and Interpretations For Bordeaux, Port, and other shouldered bottles n. bn. vts. ts. hs. ms. lms. s.

ullage is into neck bottom neck very top shoulder top shoulder; usual level for Bordeaux older than 15 yrs high shoulder; usual cork reduction, often found in Bordeaux over 20 yrs, low risk mid shoulder; variation likely as indicates cork deterioration low mid shoulder; some risks, reflected in estimates shoulder; risky, reflected in estimates into neck bottom neck very top shoulder top shoulder high shoulder mid shoulder low mid shoulder shoulder

Ullage of wines of vintages fifteen years and younger may be assumed to be of bottom neck or better unless otherwise noted. Similarly, regarding older vintages, lack of notation indicates acceptable and appropriate ullage, clear label and sound cork; potential bidders must be prepared for reasonable variations in ullage in all vintages older than 20 years. Bidders with specific condition questions should contact the Fine Wines department. Conditions generally not noted on group lots. Bordeaux wines are catalogued referencing the 1855 classification. Chateau Petrus cataloguing reflects the practice of granting it 1er Cru Classe and other notable Pomerol Chateaux are designated Cru Classe. All Bordeaux wines may assume to be chateau bottled unless otherwise stated. It is standard practice for Skinner/Lower Falls Wine to open all original wooden cases (owc) for visual inspection. The opening of banded cases will be determined on an individual basis. For Burgundy, German wines and all other more gradually slope-shouldered bottles, the ullage measurement is taken in centimeters from cork base, e.g. 3cm, 5cm, 7cm. Bottle Sizes bottle (750 ml) magnum (2xbt) marie jeanne (3xbt) double magnum (4xbt)

jeroboam (4xbt); Burgundy, Champagne jeroboam (6xbt); Bordeaux imperiale (8xbt); Bordeaux methuselah (8xbt); Burgundy

demi bottle (demi) split (1/4 bottle) Champagne

Buyers’ Caution: Levels are as when catalogued; ullage may change due to cork deterioration; other bottle conditions may occur during storage and shipment. Risk of ullage variation and cork deterioration and/or failure is assumed by the buyer at time of sale and no sale cancellations, price negotiations, or bottle substitutions will be undertaken by either Skinner or Lower Falls Wine. Similarly, no substitutions will be made due to inaccurate descriptions. Flights of Lots: Are of the same type, vintage and bottle count and follow one after another numerically, though ullage and bottle conditions may vary. The auctioneer may exercise discretion to offer, in consecutive lot order and at that same price, the following lots in the flight to the first successful bidder of that flight. Subsequently, those lots not purchased will be offered anew and so on. Absentee bids placed on any lot in a flight will be applied to the next lot in the flight (if unsuccessful), until the flight concludes. Environmental Note: It has only been in the last 15-20 years that the wine industry has moved away from using lead capsules to cover the cork and neck of a bottle. When opening an older wine, if you do have a lead capsule, give consideration as to how you dispose of it.
