Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 22 maggio 2019

London Christie’s London Luxury Week auctions from 5 to 12 June will present collectors with the very best in wines and spirits, extraordinary jewels from the leading jewellery houses and exceptional handbags from Chanel, Hermès and Louis Vuitton. Comprising four remarkable auctions, highlights of the week include a superb single-owner collection of fine Bordeaux, Burgundy and Italian wines, champagnes from the region’s leading producers, a suite of Himalaya Birkin and Vert Celadon Kelly, and rare antique and modern jewels. The week will conclude with the online sale of important Kashmir Shawls, open for bidding from 11 to 18 June. Perhaps the most significant collection of shawls ever to be offered at auction, these hand-woven, decorated Kashmir shawls date from the 17th to the late 19th century.
On the 5 and 6 June, Christie’s Luxury Week in London will open with a two-part auction of Finest & Rarest Wines. The first day will offer a single-owner collection of fine Bordeaux, Burgundy and Italian wines with impeccable provenance. Highlights include a case of Le Pin 1990 (estimate: £30,000-£40,000), a case of Petrus 1989 (estimate: £30,000-£40,000) and a six-bottle case of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, La Tache 1990 (estimate: £26,000-£32,000).The second day will feature a significant offering of excellent vintage Bordeaux, alongside rare spirits including whiskies from great distilleries such as the Macallan 48 Year Old The Savoy 125th Anniversary (estimate: £40,000-60,000). The sale will also present two extraordinary 17th century bottles, the oldest Christie’s have ever brought to market. At a depth of 40 metres, divers discovered a decayed wreck and buried, deep in the mud in an old rattan basket, were 14 ancient bottles. One bottle broke in the recovery and one bottle was opened and tested. The laboratory results revealed it had been a powerful red wine, believed to have been bottled between 1670 and 1690.
The auction will offer fantastic champagnes direct from the cellars of four of the region’s finest producers; Henri Giraud, Bruno Paillard, Philipponnat and Jacques Selosse. Highlights include prestige cuvée Fût de Chêne Grand Cru from Henri Giraud and Bruno Paillard’s NPU, exceedingly rare Philipponnat’s Clos des Goisses from 1951, and Jacques Selosse from 1976. These rare and exciting cuvées will celebrate the release of a comprehensive map of Champagne and its vineyards from The Original Map Co and David Eley.
