Impressive Private Cellars Lead Bonhams July Fine and Rare Wines Sale

Leading vintages of Champagne, Burgundy and Bordeaux from private cellars feature strongly in Bonhams Fine and Rare Wines sale in London on Thursday 16 July.

From a Normandy château cellar comes an impressive and rare collection of Bordeaux from the 1947 vintage, stored there since purchase. These include:
• Nine bottles of Château Cheval Blanc 1947: £1,000-3,000 a bottle
• Thirteen bottles of Château Latour 1947: £3,500-4,200 for four bottles
• Six bottles of Château La Mission Haut-Brion 1947: £3,500-4,200.

• A magnum of Dom Pérignon P3 1966: £2,000-3,000.
• Six bottles of Krug 1990: £1100-1300
The same cellar also includes a large selection of Egon Müller Scharzhofberger.

A collection of over 60 lots of Burgundy comes from the cellar of a wine enthusiast who drove to the area every autumn for nearly 20 years and brought the wines back himself. Among the outstanding vintages are:
• A bottle of Musigny 2001, Domaine G. Roumier: £6,000-7,000 (also a bottle of the 2006 vintage at the same estimate).
