A significant auction of old DRC wines

A significant auction of old DRC wines are coming up for auction by Sotheby’s in New York on October 13th

This October, Sotheby’s will present rare Domaine de la Romanée-Conti wines from the personal cellar of Robert Drouhin in a dedicated auction of 100 lots. 
This exceptionally-rare selection was acquired by Mr. Drouhin and his father, Maurice, directly from DRC, mostly during their time as the Domaine’s exclusive distributors in France and Belgium – a highly-covetable attribute that amplifies the collection’s pristine provenance. In addition to legendary vintages from the world’s most celebrated producer, many of which very seldom appear at auction, the curated sale will feature a selection of Maison Joseph Drouhin wines all from Grand Crus. 
 
Serena Sutcliffe MW, Sotheby’s International wine specialist, says “It is very exciting about this great personal treasure trove – really astonishing and, of course, wonderful to work with Robert Drouhin, whom I have known since the Seventies and who has such experience and integrity.   If you watch the site in August, there will be more information on content, but it is magnificent.   The condition, as one would expect, is exemplary and there are even some magnums!   I always feel that wines should be drunk (particularly by me!!!!) and this is an extraordinary opportunity for devotees of DRC – and there are also some Drouhin Grand Cru gems.”
 

Watch this video to see and hear Robert Drouhin and Serena Sutcliffe giving some information on this unique offering. Exact details of which wines will be offered will be available in August.
