After the success of Sotheby’s first instalment of the Perenchio cellar last month – billed as “one of the most superb collections of mature wines ever to appear at auction” – the second part of the sale is scheduled to take place in New York on 19 May.
The auction will include rare and great wines from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Leroy and de Vogüé, Petrus and all the Left Bank first growths.
Particular highlights will include: cases of 1978 DRC, La Tache; 1985 Leroy Chambertin; Henri Jayer, 1985 Richebourg and 1959 and 1986 Mouton Rothschild and Lafite.
Jamie Ritchie, worldwide head of Sotheby’s Wine, commented: “Following the outstanding results from the first auction in Hong Kong, we are excited to present this second offering of exceptional wines from the cellar from The Estate of Jerry Perenchio.
“Last month, we witnessed extraordinary enthusiasm from many of the world’s leading collectors who tried to secure wines for their cellars. With the New York auction, these collectors, as well as many more from North and South America, will have the opportunity to buy wines from this historic collection. This is an auction that should not be missed by wine collectors, connoisseurs and drinkers.”
