Lafleur ‘82 or Lafite ‘82? This is the dilemma facing wine connoisseurs when perusing our 27th September catalogue. Rarely does one find the breadth of iconic Chateaux and vintages in one immaculate cellar. Dreweatts is honoured to bring this collection to auction, offering devotees of Bordeaux and Vintage Champagne exceptional rarities to embellish their own cellars.

The superlative spectrum of Bordeaux begins with Petrus 1959, swiftly followed by a complete case of Mouton 1961 and Petrus 1970. The focal point of the collection is the legendary 1982 vintage, featuring Lafite, Mouton, Haut Brion, Lafleur and Petrus – all in original cases – and Cheval Blanc 1982 in bottle and magnum. 1983, now celebrating its 40th year, offers a wealth of choice including Mouton, Palmer, Cheval Blanc, Petrus and Lafleur. The trophy for 1999 Pauillac would be a genuine contest between Lafite, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages. The new millennium brought another landmark vintage to rival 1982 – the outstanding 2000 vintage – and collectors will be torn between Calon Segur, Lynch Bages, Grand Puy Lacoste and Pontet Canet. Whether you have a penchant for Left or Right Bank Bordeaux, this sale presents fabulous opportunities.
