 Properties that present the visitor with such an immediately attractive and harmonious prospect are rare indeed in the Médoc. Naturally one notices the
 vines, organized into impeccably neat, tight rows separated by ploughed furrows whose purpose seems to be to allow the earth and its burnished gravel to
 breathe. But the little park reproduced so faithfully in the etching on the wine label - its lake, its poplars, the Château, and above all the huge and complex
 network of winery buildings, convey an image of serene independence. It is as if Lafite is an independent, self-contained universe of exquisite beauty. It
 comes as no surprise therefore, to learn that the wine is produced using the most draconian selection process imaginable. Lafite is the most famous brand
 of wine in China and this selection from the Imperial Cellar underlines why. Château Lafite possesses tension, structural dynamism, and a bouquet of
 unrivaled brilliance.

 This is Allen Meadows take on this superb Domaine: “If I had to choose the wines of one Domaine specializing primarily in white wine to put in a time
 capsule with confidence, it would be those of Domaine Ramonet. Their steely, pure, graceful, balanced and powerful wines age seemingly without limits
 and are still fresh and pristine while others are tired and fading away. Not everything here is always a success but the Domaine does a remarkable job hitting
 for both power and average. And while there is ample competition from the likes of DRC, Lafon and Leflaive, there are plenty of Burgundy enthusiasts
 who believe the Ramonet Montrachet is the finest of them all, extraordinarily high praise no matter how you look at it.”

 While the unofficial but seldom disputed title of “best wine in the world” confers obvious advantages, this dominant status necessitates a standard of
 absolute excellence that is constantly being tested, scrutinized, and imitated. Although Yquem may not be superior to other wines in every respect, its
 supremacy is based on factors that help define the wine’s lineage. Consistency is clearly its dominant characteristic, and this alone places it on another
 planet. Run-of-the-mill years are extremely rare, Furthermore, Yquem vintages always seem to be at their best regardless of their age. In terms of style,
 even the least syrupy examples display impressive volume in the mouth, unctuousness, and a profuse aroma. This triple opulence - of body, flesh, and
 nose - is the wine’s hallmark. Despite this, the wine exhibits a near-perfect harmony whatever the vintage: Yquem is always Yquem. While the personnel,
 methods, and follow-up procedures may change (though relatively little compared to other wines), Yquem’s character remains the same, transcending the
 human contribution with ease.

 L’Evangile
 Château L’Evangile enjoys an ideal situation on Pomerol’s high plateau on the border with Saint-Emilion. Its immediate neighbors are Petrus and La
 Conseillante, producing two very different styles of wine. The first is very deep and full-bodied with a truffle flavor, while the second is more refined and
 subtle in texture and nose. A successful L’Evangile represents a synthesis of the two. Rothschild has finally succeeded in bringing the vats and vineyard of
 this prestigious cru up to date. Its originality is derived from the complexity of its soils: deep clay for body, gravel for firmness and freshness of tannins, and
 sand for an immediate delicate character. The blending of the three creates a Pomerol that is unique for its superb leather and violet nose and silky texture.

 Trotanoy
 Alongside Petrus, Trotanoy is the other gem in the crown of owner Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix. Its terroir, more gravelly than Petrus, places it at the very
 center of its appellation. At its best, this wine possesses a “midway” style that has all the necessary ingredients to appeal to Bordeaux purists who often
 criticize Pomerol wines for being far too rounded. For while Trotanoy, like the other greats of its appellation, possesses the capacity to instantly seduce
 with its unctuous body and palate of developed aromas, it also reveals real intensity: It is elegant and silky but undeniably well structured. This fresh, joyful
 vigor gives the wine surefire aging potential. Trotanoy enjoys a reputation as one of the most harmoniously aging wines of Bordeaux.

 Vieux Château Certan
 The Certan district has always been considered a special Pomerol terroir. All that distinguishes it from its next-door neighbor Petrus is the fact that it is
 a few feet higher than the rest of the appellation and combines fairly deep, clay-like soils with a shallow layer of gravel. While only Merlot will ripen
 properly at Petrus, at Vieux Château Certan the two Cabernet varieties also often reach maturity. Indeed, the Thienpont family was absolutely right to retain
 the ancient practice of giving Bouchet - the local name for Cabernet Franc - an important role in the blend. This feature gives the wine a rather different
 character to the other Pomerols, particularly when young: it is more linear, more discreet, even displaying somewhat green tannins at times. However,
 extended aging in the cellar inevitably does it justice. When mature, the nose is among the most complex and elegant of all the Libournais wines, with
 cedar and spice notes that provide the perfect complement to the classic aromas of truffle and violet.

 An excerpt from the interview with Martine Saunier: “The Jayer brothers inherited 4 parcels of Échézeaux divided as follows: Henri had the largest of
 the four parcels in 2 climats, “Les Cruots” North of Vosne Romanée les Suchots and down-slope from les Beaumonts, and a small parcel of Les Treux.
 Georges had the same parcels, and Lucien had les Treux only under his own label. Georges also acquired a small parcel of Nuits St Georges Villages.
 All the Georges Jayer labels clearly state that the wine has been “produit, vinifié, élevé et mis en bouteille by Henri Jayer. In small print below, appears
 ‘Georges Jayer, propriétaire in Vosne Romanée’. The wines of Georges Jayer were different of those of Henri, coming from different parcels, but when the
 wines were made by Henri, he blended them together and only the bottlings for fiscal reasons have the different labels, while the wine inside is completely
 the same for both Henri’s wines with his own label and those bearing the Henri Jayer for George Jayer labels. In addition to those two labels, there is the
 Échézeaux produced by Emmanuel Rouget, Henri’s nephew by marriage (He married Marcelle Rouget in 1942).”

                                                  this night outshowed the Cros. It was similar in its fruit

                                              of its best vintages. The 1985 Henri Jayer Échézeaux had
                                              an incredible nose. It was that ‘Jayer special,’ with that
                                              rich, plummy, dark fruit, sexy musk and sensual perfume.
                                              Everything resulted in a nosegasm. I had to quickly grab
                                              a tissue; those nosegasms can get pretty messy. Secondary
                                              chocolate and coffee emerged. The palate was meaty,
                                              rich and had this nutty sex appeal. Smooth, sensual and
                                              balanced, this was outstanding stuff although the nose
                                              delivered a little more than the palate, but that is nothing
                                              new for 1985.” (95pts JK)

 Samuel Pepys, the apparently prudish high-ranking British naval administrator, was actually a hell raiser, a seducer of servant girls, and a frequenter of
 taverns. Recording his turpitudes in his secret diary (discovered two centuries after his death), he describes his encounter with a wine “that hath a good and
 most particular taste that I never met with” named “Ho Bryan.” His spelling may have been somewhat shaky, but it is clear that by April 10, 1663, Haut-
 Brion was already making a name for itself on English tables. Located close to Bordeaux - so close in fact, that it now falls firmly within the city’s suburbs
 - Haut-Brion has been an undisputed star among wines ever since. And its status is richly merited. The careful balance between Cabernet and Merlot allows
 a unique personality to shine through, featuring truffle notes and a smoky quality, which is the preserve of this wine and its special terroir. Maturing at a
 slow, wise pace, its full character unfolds slowly and quietly in the cellar. And the very rare Haut-Brion white offers further opportunities to shine, as if
 Haut-Brion was trying to establish itself as the ultimate yardstick for great wine, as well as being one of the most consistent wines of the 20th Century.

 Located directly opposite its sister property Haut-Brion, La Mission is a wine that is keen to assert its own personality. Its terroir and mix of varieties
 are very similar to those of its illustrious neighbor, whose characteristic smokiness and supple, harmonious depth it shares. The Owners of Haut-Brion -
 the Duc and Duchesse de Mouchy - acquired the property more than a quarter of a century ago and entrusted the impressive perfectionist Jean-Bernard
 Delmas, the manager of Haut-Brion, with the technical stewardship. Having succeeded his father in this role, Delmas has in turn passed the baton to his
 son, who now looks after the two Châteaux. Despite these strong similarities, La Mission possesses in its youth a velvet softness and mellowness on the
 palate that makes it more immediately charming than its more celebrated counterpart.

 An obsessive winemaker, but an admirably modest and sensitive human being, Jean-Francois Coche-Dury produces wines in his own image that are
 snapped up by collectors worldwide as soon as they leave the estate, such is their worldwide fame. Coche-Dury laid down the guiding principles of his
 work at a very early stage. These principles help to explain his highly individual style: harvesting grapes at the perfect moment of sugar-acidity balance;
 pressing and vinification designed to protect the wine from any oxidation (through meticulously controlled fermentation alone); and long, slow, careful
 aging in casks made of wood he has chosen himself. As the Domaine does not possess extensive Grand Cru or Premier Cru holdings, Coche-Dury has been
 forced to take the same degree of care over his “Village” wines, and this hard work has been rewarded with exceptional, long-lived wines with a refined
 bouquet - especially those from the Rougeot and Narvaux sites. All told, it is without a question the Corton Charlemagne which has propelled Coche-Dury
 to superstardom and is today considered one of the very top white wines in the World, as well as one of the most highly collectible ones.

 Where else but The Imperial Cellar can one find 24 bottles of Le Montrachet by Domaine de la Romanée Conti, including one full banded OWC? Needless
 to say, this is a very rare and difficult to source wine, especially in case quantity, plus there’s three bottles of recent “relatives”… Much has been said about
 the ageing ability of the 1996 whites, but this Montrachet has another Century of life on it and then some. Every bottle we have opened from The Imperial
 Cellar confirms this 100%. This is the Montrachet from DRC, and this is no ordinary wine.

 Take a look at the sheer selection of vintages of this incredible vineyard, all by Domaine de la Romanée Conti. La Tâche is one of the two Monopoles in
 the DRC stable and it has an amazingly long history. In 1232, the Abbey of Saint Vivant in Vosne acquired 1.8 hectares of vineyard. In 1631 it was bought
 by the de Croonembourg family, who renamed it Romanée for reasons unknown. At the same time they acquired the adjacent vineyard of La Tâche. In
 1760, André de Croonembourg decided to sell the Domaine and it became the subject of a bidding war between Madame de Pompadour, mistress of Louis
 XV of France, and her bitter enemy Louis François Ier de Bourbon, Prince de Conti. The Prince won, paying the massive sum of 8000 livres, and the
 vineyard became known as Romanée-Conti. But come the Revolution, the prince’s land was seized and auctioned off. This was the case for both La Tâche
 and Romanée Conti. Fast forward to the early part of the 19th Century, and as one of Napoleon’s generals, Louis Liger-Belair was well-placed to acquire
 good vineyards. And from 1815 this he did - with his son Louis-Charles, he amassed 40 hectares of prime land, including all of La Tâche. By 1933 this
 had declined to 24 hectares and family squabbles over an inheritance led to the Liger-Belair’s sale of La Tâche to the Domaine. The Domaine already
 owned 4 hectares of the adjacent Les Gaudichots vineyard from the Duvault-Blochet days, and after much legal wrangling in 1936 this and La Tâche, were
 combined into the single Grand Cru Monopole of La Tâche.

 Martine Saunier, who has been the Château Rayas Importer into the United States for the last couple of decades, tells a tale of Jacques Raynaud, who
 made the string of legendary vintages of Rayas offered here. It is a story that came up in a recent interview we did with her and one that had to be told,
 since we found some mysterious glued on paper ‘9’s on top of vintage neck labels of the rare 1969 bottles of Rayas in this parcel. “Jacques Raynaud was
 a funny man, who was a bit miserly when it came to spending, especially on bottles, labels and boxes for his wine. When time came to bottle the great
 1969 vintage, he had run out of vintage neck labels, since ordering too few from the printer and instead of ordering more of the proper 1969 labels, he
 found some stacks of the 1960 and 1963 vintage neck labels in his office and proceeded to affix these to the 1969 bottles. He then cut out the ‘6’ from
 these and turned it around and glued it on top of the ‘0’’s and ‘3’ from the aforementioned labels, and voila! This was not only practical, but also helped to
 save a small amount of money!” These bottles are clearly 1969 bottles, but it’s easy to see why such practices can cause confusion in the market. We will
 not leave any stone unturned in uncovering the true stories of some of the quirkier practices in the world of wine and it’s guaranteed the first time this has
 ever been told in an auction catalogue.

 Bonneau
 Bonneau, a reclusive man who seems to desire to avoid attention from writers and the public, is one of the finest growers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Tucked
 away at the top of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Bonneau produces 1,600 cases of a stunningly rich, multi-dimensional wine with concentration only
 seen at Beaucastel and Rayas. The ten acres of vineyards are dominated by Grenache, more than 80% of the vines. Making wines since 1956 in his small
 holding in the La Crau district, Bonneau uses the traditional method of crushing all the grapes, giving them a hot and lengthy maceration, and then aging
 them in small barrels. This is a spectacular estate that incorporates everything that’s great about Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

 rayas
 Situated on a sandy terroir, in airy surroundings shaded by pine forests, the Rayas Domaine stands apart from others in Châteauneuf. Rejecting the modern
 methods used by many wine producers, here only old, wine-encrusted concrete vats and wooden barrels are to be found in the château’s historic chai
 (storehouse). By contrast, in essential matters, this Domaine is ahead of its time: only a few bunches of grapes are grown on each vine plant; harvesting
 does not take place until the grapes are fully mature; and vinification is natural with only moderate extraction. Without making a mystery of them,
 Emmanuel Raynaud - who succeeded his uncle in 1997 - applies these methods with great sensitivity. Like those produced at his Domaine in Vacqueyras,
 Château des Tours, the Rayas wines are pale in color when young. Impatient wine connoisseurs should be prepared to wait, since with aging these wines
 acquire a subtlety of bouquet, delicacy of texture and long freshness that puts them in a class of their own. This is arguably the most refined of any wine
 from the South of France.

Throughout the last century, Latour has been the most consistent of the Premiers Crus. But consistency alone does not make a first growth. The property
has had a run of vintages in the 20th and 21st Centuries, whose qualities have absolutely demolished both the National and International competition.
Prime examples are the 1928, 1945, 1961 and 1982, which attracted admiration from their early youth and continue to do so today. Without a shadow of
doubt the 1990, 1996, 2000, 2003 and 2005 are set to follow in their footsteps. Each time they occur, these magical years validate the work and talent of a
gifted director and his team. But more than this, they draw something quintessential from what is an exceptional terroir, without doubt the most spectacular
in the Medoc region. The natural gifts enjoyed by this classic wine are inherent in the gently curving hilltop dominating the wider landscape, its deep layer
of large, round gravel, and its efficient drainage system. All these components are present in the wine, and together with the recent refurbishment and
modernization of the winery, Latour ranks among the very highest echelons of wines made in the world today.

        “Port-like, with an unctuous texture, and a dark garnet color
        with considerable amber at the edge, the 1961 Latour possesses
        a viscosity and thickness. One of the three bottles served at the
        Château’s tasting revealed a surprisingly aggressive, minty,
        herbaceous nose, but the other two bottles were liquid perfection,
        exhibiting fragrant, cedary, truffle, leather, mineral, and sweet,
        jammy aromatics, full-bodied, voluptuous textures, exquisite
        purity and concentration, and a layered, highly-nuanced finish
        that represents the essence of compellinglygreat wine. The 1961
        has been fully mature for over 15 years, but it seems to get
        richer, holding onto its succulence and fat, and developing more
        aromatic nuances without losing any sweetness or concentration.
        An extraordinary wine, it is unquestionably one of the Bordeaux
        legends of the century!…” (100pts)

                                              “Dark garnet with an amber edge, the 1959 Latour
                                              reveals a touch of volatile acidity in the nose, along
                                              with aromas of melted caramel, tobacco, and jammy red
                                              and black fruits. As the wine sat in the glass, notes of
                                              minerals,coffee, spice, and underbrush emerged. There is
                                              still copious tannin in the finish (I am not sure it will ever
                                              be fully resolved), but this sumptuous, complex, fragrant,
                                              super-rich Latour cuts a broad swath across the palate.
                                              Fully mature, it is best consumed over the next decade.”

This fine family Domaine came into being at the beginning of the last century. Under the direction of Armand and then Charles Rousseau, it was one of
the first to win respect for top-quality Burgundy from small producers during a time when the region was dominated by the blends of the wine merchants.
Possessing wonderful parcels of vines in all the best Gevrey-Chambertin terroirs, the Domaine developed a style based on finesse of aroma, purity of terroir
character, and elegance of texture. The Rousseau Family has been responsible for some of the most legendary wines made in Burgundy in the 20th Century.
They have helped bring Burgundy the world-wide recognition it fully deserves.

 Lafleur
 The Lafleur vineyard, adjacent to that of Petrus, is immediately impressive for its magnificent surface layer of gravel (recalling the soils of the Medoc
 peninsula), which a freak of nature heaped up on these mere 11 or so acres (4,5 hectares) on top of the famous blue clay of the Certan plateau. This gravel
 retains the daytime heat, allowing Cabernet Franc to ripen more evenly than elsewhere and therefore to balance the power of the Merlot with its fresh
 aromas and tannins. It is this balance between the two varieties, unique in Pomerol that is responsible for the legendary status of this cru, which many
 wine lovers regard as Pomerol at its richest and most elegant. Jacques Guinaudeau and his wife have been the custodians of Lafleur for a number of years
 and take their responsibilities extremely seriously. The vineyard’s small size means it can be worked like a garden and each vinestock given individual,
 “personalized” treatment. The same precision is applied to the vinification process, the sole aim of which is to convey the nobility of this exceptional
 terroir as simply and faithfully as possible. Since World War II, Lafleur has produced some wines whose texture, purity of style, and beauty of fruit are
 truly moving.

 Le Pin
 At a time when Bordeaux was so hampered by its own hierarchies it was almost paralyzed by them, Le Pin came along and overthrew a number of accepted
 ideas. When Jacques Thienpont established the property in 1979, people were amazed at his ambition to take this wine (admittedly produced in minute
 quantities) to the summit of Pomerol perfection. In the case of a number of local observers, astonishment turned to disbelief when the 1982 vintage became
 a legend almost right away. Château Le Pin is almost impossible to get hold of today, and its price has gone through the ceiling. So what is so extraordinary
 about this wine? In many respects, Le Pin is the very opposite of what we would normally expect (and sometimes fear) from a Bordeaux. Where most
 Bordeaux wines display a restrained aromatic palette, Le Pin flaunts an exotic bouquet in which coconut takes over from ultra-ripe black fruit and a roasted,
 woody flavor unfolds uninhibitedly. Neither is there any austerity or tannic rigor to harden a body that is soft to the point of suavity. Languid and sensual,
 Le Pin is a Bordeaux from another world.

 Petrus
 Petrus is one of the only properties in Bordeaux that refrains from attaching the epithet Château to its name. Rather than its architecture (or lack of it), the
 reputation of this producer rests on its terroir. Formed essentially of a plateau that extends from the northwest of Libourne as far as the western limits of
 Saint-Emilion, Pomerol is a near-flat and apparently homogeneous region. This surface uniformity nevertheless hides considerable differences beneath
 the ground; Petrus’ subsoil is almost entirely made up of a seam of blue clay that keeps the roots of its Merlot vines permanently and blessedly cool.
 Early fruiting and never suffering from a lack of moisture, Petrus grapes arrive at the winery at the right time and perfectly ripe. In the past, Petrus was
 renowned for its heady, juicy intensity. Today, it is the formal perfection of this unctuous liquid that delights wine lovers. And whatever the vintage, it
 always impresses with its generous and harmonious nose. There is no doubt that Petrus is the most collectible wine in Bordeaux today.

 1089   Château Lafleur - Vintage 2000
        Pomerol
        owc
        “I am not surprised the 2000 Lafleur has garnered the magical
        three-digit score. From bottle, the wine boasts a dense plum/purple
        color in addition to a gorgeous nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed
        with hints of black truffles, raspberries, and minerals. The tannin is
        present, but seems to creep up only upon intense inspection. Lafleur
        is enormously endowed, rich, and full-bodied, with a tremendous
        chewiness and, at the same time, sensuality. Pure, massive, and
        rich, with exceptional levels of glycerin and fruit nearly concealing
        high levels of tannin,and a 60+ second finish, this is a remarkable
        achievement, and … just maybe the finest Lafleur since the 1982.”
        (100pts)
        我並不覺得2000 Lafleur取得100滿分有什麼值得驚訝。從瓶子中
        透出深濃的李子/紫色,散發出混和了櫻桃烈酒、黑松露、楊莓
        和礦物的誘人氣味。細心觀察才能感覺單寧存在。Lafleur的酒身
        厚而濃郁,有口感,而且性感誘人。入口清純,魁偉和濃厚,
        甘油和果香高度濃密,差不多已將大量的單寧掩蓋,加上長達
        60秒以上的收結,無疑是一項驚人成就,也許是1982年以來最好
        的Lafleur。 (100分)

                                                      女仕的驕傲﹕LALOU BIZE-LEROY的傑出佳釀
Domaine Leroy is a Burgundy beacon. It serves as a benchmark for anyone wishing to judge the style of a particular vintage or discover the character of
the region’s most celebrated terroirs. Its collection of grand cru and premier cru wines is impressive and covers both Cotes. Failing disaster, biodynamic
viticulture produces grapes that are incredibly rich in perfume and terroir character. Vinification using uncrushed grapes that is destemmed - where necessary
- by hand on a sorting table preserves the Pinot Noir’s freshness and nobility. Lalou Bize-Leroy is without doubt the most demanding, knowledgeable and
experienced of Burgundy tasters, and has done everything in her power to create the wine of her dreams. Her first vintages, produced between 1988 and
1993, astonished with their deep color and monumentality. Subsequent vintages produced wines of a rather different style, displaying greater refinement
and suppleness with more delicate tannins and better integrated wood.

D’Auvenay is the second Domaine run by Lalou Bize-Leroy and is fully owned by her, while Domaine Leroy belongs to a company owned jointly by Ms
Bize, her sister, and their Japanese partners. Its size and production are minuscule, but for those who have the opportunity to taste these wines, there is
nothing to compare. The secret of this Domaine’s remarkable success is its tiny yields (often lower than 30hl/ha) and minimal intervention in the cellar.

Mouton’s predominant characteristic is its exuberance. The Château of Branne-Mouton changed its name to Mouton Rothschild when Baron Nathaniel
de Rothschild acquired it in 1853. He was the first great figure in Mouton’s history. The second was Philippe de Rothschild, who, from his arrival at the
property in 1922 to his death in 1987, literally reinvented the wine, its legend, its marketing, and its personality. The decision to commission a different
artist to design each label - the only exceptions being 1945, the “victory vintage,” and 2003, the 150th anniversary year - made an important contribution
to the estate’s unique status. But the main factor was the wine itself, which resembles no other. The immediate charm of its bouquet, its powerful spiciness,
its generous body in the mouth, and its rich tannins, add up to something unique. This is a wine that seems to have discovered a new and more harmonious
rhythm in the 21st century and is now producing wines that are fully comparable to the legends of past great vintages like 1928, 1945, 1959, 1982 and 1986.

Romanée Conti. The mere mention of this name in wine circles invokes a hushed sense of respect for what is arguably the greatest wine made in the world
today. In 1631 it was bought by the de Croonembourg family, who renamed it Romanée for reasons unknown, but nevertheless we love the name in all its
glory. At the same time they acquired the adjacent vineyard of La Tâche, so the two are inexorably historically linked. In 1760, André de Croonembourg
decided to sell the Domaine and it became the subject of a bidding war between Madame de Pompadour, mistress of Louis XV of France, and her bitter
enemy Louis François Ier de Bourbon, Prince de Conti. The Prince won, paying the massive sum of 8000 livres (about $25 Million by today’s standard),
and the vineyard became known as Romanée-Conti. But come the French Revolution, the prince’s land was seized and auctioned off. The Romanée-Conti
vineyard was bought by Nicolas Defer de la Nouerre, who in 1819 sold it to Julien Ouvrard for 78,000 francs (a very paltry sum compared to the original
price). In 1869 it was bought by Jacques-Marie Duvault-Blochet, who really laid the foundation of the Domaine and this historical vineyard that know
today. Henri Leroy, who was the father of Lalou Bize-Leroy, decided to uproot all the vines of the Romanée Conti vineyard in 1945, shortly after the
harvest. Besides the ravages of World War II, the vineyard was beset with problems and consisted mainly of very old vines, producing nearly nothing, as
witnessed by the production of only 608 bottles for the 1945 vintage. The land lay barren for some years and again in 1952 it was ready for production from
the only 3-year old vines (planted in 1949). What a comeback it was and if there ever was a testament to truly legendary terroir, this would be the one, for
it produces one of the greatest wines in the world.

         of the flight, and he got lost in the purity and depth of its minty
         nose. There were also spearmint flavors, and Big Boy admired its
         iron flavors along with its concentration and complexity. What
         made this wine even more special is the fact that it was made from
         ten-year old vines. Dasha also picked up on jasmine qualities, and
         she was 100% correct. Almost everyone preferred the 55 RC best

         good as it gets.” (98pts JK)
         在品嚐此酒當夜我所寫下的筆記中,唯一仍然能辨認出的,就
         是這是當夜所嚐的最後一瓶酒,一瓶超凡入聖的1962年 DRC Ro-
         manée Conti。事實上我並沒寫下太多,只記錄了幾節好評,及用
         不朽、永恆去形容它。此酒壯麗、強烈,實在非常特別,這瓶
         1962年 DRC Romanée Conti,真的是十分超卓的佳釀。 (98分 JK)

 Margaux cultivates elegance like no other winery in the world. Nothing exists here that is not the product of an overwhelming desire for refinement and
 sophistication. The sense of enchantment begins at the bend in the straight, simple lane that leads past Margaux cemetery - the resting place of benevolent
 onlooker Bernard Ginestet, the former owner - when visitors encounter the tranquil and majestic avenue of plane trees ending in the impressive but slender-
 columned facade of the Château. This impression of serenity continues with the inner courtyards, winery buildings and cellars, which (unlike most in
 Medoc) have never been subjected to the indignity of drastic remodeling but have been scrubbed from top to bottom in an ongoing desire for perfection.
 Since its purchase in 1977 by Andre Menzelopoulos and a spectacular recovery led by his daughter Corinne in conjunction with brilliant director Paul
 Pontallier, Margaux has redefined elegant Bordeaux as a wine that is slender and yielding but never meager (unlike too many Margaux wines of the past),
 with a satiny, steely structure, brilliant with good length and displaying an unrivaled freshness of nose.

 At the end of this section, we are proud to present a series of 5 lots, consigned directly by Château Margaux, that have never been offered at any auction in
 the world before and never will again. It is a collection of truly extraordinary lots that firmly establishes this great estate as one of the very top in the world.

                 This lot is so unique, it nearly defies description. It is however without any
                 question, the most extraordinary piece of furniture you will ever encounter.
                 Viscount Linley, or Lord Linley, who is the nephew of Queen Elizabeth
                 II, happens to be one of the most accomplished bespoke furniture makers
                 in the world today. Viscount Linley developed this incredible architectural
                 miniature of Château Margaux, modeled after the original Château itself
                 and crafted of the finest Sycamore, Ripple Sycamore, Burr Ash and
                 Bombay Rosewood. The top (roof) of the Château is hinged to access
                 a compartment, holding three important vintages of Château Margaux:
                 1908 for the first great lucky vintage of the 20th Century, 1918 which
                 was not only lucky because it marked the end of World War I, but also
                 because it was a remarkable vintage and finally 1978, which was the first
                 vintage produced at Château Margaux in the “Mentzelopoulos Era”.
                 The distinctive front elevation of the château will have a three dimensional
                 portico with fully turned sycamore columns and will hold inlaid windows
                 and doors in contrasting veneers with marquetry details repeated on all
                 floors. The lower steps will intriguingly reveal a secret drawer that can be
                 used for fine cigars or other treasures. There is only 1 of these remarkable
                 bespoke cabinets available and it is being offered here for the first and only
                 time ever in this configuration.

                 Andre Mentzelopoulos bought Château Margaux in 1977 and
                 immediately began a magical transformation of an already legendary 1st
                 Growth property. The Mentzelopoulos Era started at Château Margaux
                 with the 1978 vintage and has been continuing under the expert stewardship
                 by Owner Corinne Mentzelopoulos and Managing Director Paul
                 Pontallier. Year after year, the vines have yielded progressively greater
                 vintages and this lot is a celebration of this Era and of the tremendous
                 achievements at Château Margaux for the past 4 decades. This is an
                 instant all-access pass to the Private Cellar of Château Margaux and it
                 contains 30 full cases of Château Margaux 1978-2007, including every
                 single vintage and thereby granting the owner a complete vertical and
                 unique collection, made all the more impossible to ever replicate by the fact
                 that each and every case will be personalized for the winner of this lot.

 This was not an easy task. How do you pick just 10 lots out of The Imperial Cellar where each Château or Estate can only be represented once, but at the
 same time it has to highlight the incredible depth and breadth of this collection? Each lot is legendary in its own right, and they clearly speak for themselves.
 Obviously the incredible collection of 2000 Bordeaux Châteaux in original wooden cases is staggering. How about cases of 61 Lafleur, 28 Latour, 45 Haut
 Brion and 45 Mouton? Those are very difficult to come by. A case of 71 Romanée Conti or 62 A. Rousseau Chambertin: Virtually impossible to find. 82
 Lafite and 2000 Petrus are already in the stratosphere, but confirmed legends of tomorrow. The most amazing collection lot of full cases of Henri Jayer Cros
 Parantoux in top vintages….This is the ultimate dream section of every wine lover and collector, a fantasy of the vine and a pure thoroughbred selection
 of some of the greatest wines of the 20th Century – in Case quantities!

                                                  中的礦物及火柴般的味道更是精彩。其酒味令人聯

                                                outstanding color and condition

                                                     “A consistent 100-point wine (only because my point scale
                                                     stops at that number), the 1945 Mouton-Rothschild is truly
                                                     one of the immortal wines of the century. This wineis easily
                                                     identifiable because of its remarkably exotic, over-ripe,
                                                     sweet nose of black fruits, coffee, tobacco, mocha, and
                                                     Asian spices. It is an extraordinarily dense, opulent, and
                                                     rich wine, with layers of creamy fruit, behaving more like
                                                     a 1947 Pomerol than a structured, powerful, and tannic
                                                     1945. The wine finishes with a 60+ second display of ripe
                                                     fruit, extract, and sweet tannin. This remarkably youthful
                                                     wine (only light amber at the edge) is mindboggling! Will
                                                     it last another 50 years?…” (100pts)
                                                     一直是100分的酒(因為我評的滿分只能去到這個分
                                                     數) ,1945年的Mouton Rothschild真的是世紀的不朽的
                                                     名釀之一。此酒非常容易識別,因為它具突出的酒
                                                     香, 如甘甜的香氣中透出熟透的黑色水果、咖啡、
                                                     煙草、莫加咖啡和亞洲香料。這是極度濃密和豐厚
                                                     的酒,帶有多層次的柔滑水果,跟1947年的Pomerol
                                                     尤其相似,多於像1945年份應有的架構,強勁和富
                                                     單寧的酒。此酒收結時間長於60秒,當中再展示成
                                                     熟的水果,精華及甘甜的單寧。這酒還非常年輕(只
                                                     在杯邊呈現淺琥珀色)實在令人困惑!它還可再陳年

Henri Jayer was born in 1922 in Vosne Romanée, the youngest son of Eugene Jayer, who was not a vigneron. There were 3 boys in the family with older
brothers Georges and Lucien being Henri’s senior by 5 and 7 years respectively. However, while Eugene slowly acquired small holdings in Vosne Romanée
les Beaumonts and Échézeaux, these were not important enough to support the three sons. During World War II, Georges and Lucien were captured by
the Germans and sent to a prisoner of war camp in Austria. Henri, being much younger, stayed behind and helped his father. As time passed, Henri was
eventually forced to work in a factory in Prussia. Under the guise of a falsified doctor’s note he was able to escape and return home to Vosne just in time
for the birth of his first child. After the war, Henri was firmly in charge of the terroir entrusted to him by his father.

Georges became a forester and passed away in 2000. Lucien tended the family vineyard and added some metayages (share cropping agreements) including
a parcel of Vosne Romanée Malconsorts and had his own label. In 1987, Henri Jayer retired at 65, the age when metayage agreements traditionally expire,
but continued to make wine under his own label until 2001, mainly for his own private use. The Méo family took back their holdings, which he had been
making: Nuits les Meurgers, Vosne Brulées, and most importantly the Richebourg plot, and it was last vintage produced by Henri in those three appellations.

It is among these already legendary wines that you will find the rarest case of wine in the entire world: 1959 Henri Jayer Richebourg. It is likely the only
such case available on the planet and certainly the first time such a treasure has ever been brought to auction in Asia. This is the stuff that legends are made
of...

                                                       “The 1982 H. Jayer Richebourg had an intense nose as well with
                                                       more classic, gamy, Burgundian fruit. It had stinky fruit in that
                                                       good Burgundy way with lots of fresh vitamin intensity. One might
                                                       say iodine. There was also good leather in the nose. The palate was
                                                       quite wound, ‘very dry and stemmy,’ Rudy noted, despite the fact
                                                       that Jayer does not use stems. I agreed. The 1982 was a little kinder
                                                       and gentler regarding its acids. The citric intensity crept out of its
                                                       nose, and the palate was the longest of the flight so far. The citrus
                                                       flavors were beautiful and not too tangy.” (95+pts JK)

                                              “The 1959 Jayer came from Wilf’s cellar, and this
                                              extraordinary meal became even more so immediately. It
                                              was one of those wines that stopped time, transporting
                                              anyone fortunate enough to taste a drop to a place where
                                              nothing else matters but pleasure. It was rich and heady
                                              like all great ‘59s and didn’t suffer from any over-ripeness
                                              or stew that sometimes plagues 1959 in Burgundy. Its
                                              finish was endless, another indicator that time is no match
                                              for Henri Jayer. I only can hope to try this wine again,
                                              just once.” (99pts JK)

                                              “The 1978 Richebourg was incredible, consistent with the
                                              Ech zeaux except there was more earth here and a touch of
                                              toll house sweetness. The t ‘n a were huge yet fine, and the
                                              palate was more amazing than Spider Man with its huge,
                                              massive, intense and awesome impression. Flavors of
                                              vitamin, game, musk and the richest, most luscious fruits
                                              blessed our palates. I wrote ‘wow,’ and noted its huge and
                                              massive qualities again. It felt like the Terminator had
                                              showed up, because it was going to be tough for anything
                                              to top this. It was another Eric ‘100.’...” (99pts JK)

                                                   有著令人難以置信的一致性,但更多了從土壤而來
                                                   的濃烈氣息而且益發甜美。酒體宏大但極為幼細,

                                                   而且非常動人。味道帶著野味、麝香,還有各種甜

                                              Parantoux came to me courtesy of The Don, I believe, or
                                              at least because I finally made it over to his table. The

                                              along with minerals, earth, leather and crushed granite.
                                              The nose seemed endlessly deep, and the palate backed
                                              it up with rich yet still taut fruit, black and purple, along

         “The 1988 was the first and only wine to show a hint of gamy
         maturity, that kinky, fleshy style that Jayer transforms into after age
         twenty or so, plus or minus depending on the quality of the vintage.
         The 1988 was very sexy, just starting to show some flesh, sweet in
         its purple and with a splash of vitamins as well. The classic Jayer
         musk and kink were there, and the palate was chewy and fleshy, no
         easy task to achieve in 1988, which is a rugged, tannic, structure
         first vintage. The 1988 was tasty as well. Its delightful drinkability
         and approachability stood out in this first flight. While the 1988
         might not get much better, score one for Jayer. The 88 should still
         have a reasonably long plateau ahead of it, to be clear.” (94pts JK)
         在陳存二十多年之後的今天才能讓我們領略到,這1988年份,
         原來是Jayer釀酒生涯中第一個及唯一一個年份,在其作品中呈
         現出那種既成熟又清新的獨特酒感的。此酒令人感覺相當性
         感,亦甚為清新甜美。典型Jayer出品的麝香味當然不會缺少,
         在口腔內更有如吃肉的感覺,因為1988年是很粗獷、單寧強勁
         的一年,要達到這個效果殊不容易。1988年亦是很好喝的,不
         單適合飲用,又平易近人。這1988年份已經好得不能再好了,
         也正是Jayer的皇牌。明顯地,此1988年份仍可陳存一段頗長的時
         間。(94分JK)

There is no doubt that Marcel Guigal’s name will be one of those inscribed in a list of the greatest winemakers of modern times. His achievement has been
to oversee the renaissance of a great cru, Côte Rôtie, that had been virtually abandoned, rescuing the wine and viticulture of his region from the somewhat
haphazard approach of the past, and making his name an international guarantee of quality for the wines to which it is attached, from the unassuming
Côtes-du-Rhône to the mythical Côte Rôtie and Hermitage cuvées. In fewer than 20 years Marcel Guigal has demonstrated unequivocally to the entire
world that the Rhône valley is worthy of a place among the most eminent winegrowing regions of the world. The son of Etienne Guigal (who in 1946
created the small house that bears his name), Marcel built his reputation around two exceptional Cote Rôtie cuvees: the beautifully structured Landonne,
and the velvety sublime Mouline. In 1985, the suave and exuberant Turque was introduced, further enhancing the success of this house. Matured in barrels
for an unusually long time - 42 months - and subject to the meticulous supervision of Marcel and his son Philippe, year after year these wines continue to
be among the very best of the Rhône wines and, in the best vintage years, of any wine in the world.

 This estate already boasted more than its fair share of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus and has just expanded by purchasing the very tasty Domaine Thomas
 holdings, which includes climats in Chambertin, Romanée Saint-Vivant and Les Malconsorts! Dujac has been exceptional and more masterfully styled
 than most for the past 30 years. All the aromatic purity you could wish for but still instantly appealing and very long-lived, with magnificently distinguished
 ultra-classy tannins: This is what Dujac is all about! A small proportion of Negociant wines sold under the Dujac Fils et Père label make a very worthy
 addition to this winery’s offerings.

          “The 1978 Dujac Clos de la Roche was spectacular. There were
          loads of menthol, spice, alcohol, game, minerals, wet stones
          and hints of citrus. The nose was perfect for Wolf, and it had an
          incredible spine to it with hints of citrus and bread. The flavors
          were deliciously gamy, and the finish was massive, with lots of
          earth, ink and leather flavors. The wine also had this complex
          wintry impression of mint and menthol flavors, la Cheval Blanc.

Angelus
For a long time, Château Angelus was a prime example of what was regarded as a good Saint-Emilion: generous and supple in a good year, fluid and
sometimes astringent in a lesser year, with earthy aromas and a discreet rusticity. For more than 15 years, this estate located at the heart of Saint-Emilion
has been moving emphatically away from this pleasant but limited profile and has become one of the leading Right Bank clarets, expressing all the different
facets of a great modern grand cru through its rich nose and fullness of body. This spectacular transformation is the fruit of the passion and commitment
of one man, Hubert de Bouard, who succeeded his father as owner of the property in 1985. Rethinking and often reinventing each stage in the winemaking
process from harvesting and vinification to aging and bringing highly exacting standards to bear, he is one of a small band of winemakers who have
transformed not only their own wine but their entire region too.

Ausone
In the 4th century C.E. the Bordelais poet Ausonius accumulated honors and riches during the course of his long life, thereby guaranteeing himself eternal
fame. The wines of Château Ausone, named after the Gallo-Roman versifier, share the same philosophy. Their delicate, velvety texture is delightful in their
first flush of youth, while their elegant nose and long finish guarantee extended, harmonious aging. Ausone and its vines are located on a small promontory
that discreetly overlooks the medieval village of Saint-Emilion (only the initiated know how to find the vineyard). This unique site, clinging to the side
of a line of limestone hills that bisects the Saint-Emilion appellation east to west, gives the wine an unrivaled structural finesse magnified thanks to the
painstaking work and artistry of Alain Vauthier, the present owner and winemaker.

Cheval Blanc
Cheval Blanc is the most recent of the leading Bordeaux Crus. For a long time it was part of the Figeac lands and only appeared on the books of the
Libourne wine brokers at the beginning of the 19th century. Once it had gained its independence, however, it made dazzling progress. Like its neighbor,
it owes its success to the fact that its soil differs radically from that of the other Saint-Emilion or even Pomerol properties, as it is on the border between
the two appellations. Situated on a clay and limestone marl plateau, the vineyard benefits from a deep layer of gravel bearing a closer resemblance to the
geology of Medoc than that of the Right Bank and its classic wines. Furthermore, Cheval gets its unrivaled freshness, magnificent fruit, and aristocratic
honesty from a preponderance of Cabernet Franc over Merlot. Neither ultra-powerful nor the king of opulence, this wine can be considered a prince of
balance.

Musigny is one magical place in Burgundy. Situated at the heart of the bucolic village of Chambolle, the Le Musigny vineyard is certainly among the very
top vineyard sites in the world; in the right vintages and combined with the top producers, it can be mind-boggling. There are some great rarities on offer
here and in the words of Allen Meadows, aka The Burghound, here’s a quick intro to these producers:

Vogüé
…the sublime genius of a great Musigny Vielles Vignes. For me, it is one of the three supreme expressions in all of Burgundy with unmatched finesse
and complexity and rivaling the very best in richness and power. There is also a subtle sweetness to the flavors that coat the palate, slowly building to a
crescendo of a finish that can literally linger for days in the memory. There is no shortage of Burgundy lovers who will claim that the greatest red Burgundy
that they have ever tasted is between the ‘45, ‘47 or ‘49 Musigny VV from the Comte de Vogüé. This is not an accident in my view…

roumier
The incredibly talented Christophe Roumier’s idol is his grandfather Georges, who is arguably the greatest Burgundian winemaker ever. When one
considers the simply unbelievable wines that he made at Domaine Roumier between 1924 and 1961 as well as using his years as estate manager for the
Comte de Vogüé, where he made among other vintages the legendary ’45, ’47 and ’49 Musigny Vielles Vignes, you can make a pretty good case for him.
Some of the greatest burgundies that I have ever tasted have come from this Domaine and in my view, they are reference standard in quality, that is just
how good they are.

mugnier
They (the Mugnier wines) are understated, rigorous, precise, pure and delineated wines of considerable punch yet there is also a surpassing delicacy and
elegance to them as well. In short, they are wines that nourish the intellect as well as the soul and they should be approached with this in mind. If by chance
you are not familiar with the wines of Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier, I cannot recommend them to you highly enough if your taste runs to understated, silky
and ultra pure Burgundy that consistently delivers the wonderful quality of power without weight.

If the 19th century belonged to the large firms of Burgundy wine merchants, the 20th witnessed the budding and blossoming of the family-owned
Domaines. Domaine Leflaive, a veritable sampling stick of the great Puligny-Montrachet terroirs, was closely bound up with this strong movement for
the emancipation of family properties. The Domaine was founded immediately after the First World War by Joseph Leflaive, an engineer and graduate
of the Ecole Poly technique in Paris, and subsequently developed by his sons, all of whom continued to pursue other professional activities. Since
1990, Anne-Claude Leflaive, one of Joseph’s granddaughters, has been in charge. The devoted servant of what is an extraordinary collection of wines
(four Grands Crus, six Puligny Premiers Crus including Pucelles, Clavoillon and Folatieres, and an assortment of Puligny “Village” holdings), she has
now adopted biodynamic methods throughout. This preoccupation with the environment has also improved definition of the wines, allowing a pure,
brilliant, and uncompromising personality to show through. Additionally, Domaine Leflaive’s Crus have gained in richness of body, aromatic precision,
and transparency of terroir character while retaining the superlative finesse that has made them legendary.

It is one of France’s most privileged appellations. First of all, Châteauneuf rarely suffers from the problems that can spell doom for other French wine
regions. Constant sunshine, dry heat, and strong winds virtually guarantee that rot and pourriture, so dreaded in Burgundy, Bordeaux, and elsewhere in
France, are rarely a problem. Châteauneuf-du-Pape has the potential to consistently produce some of the finest and longest-lived red wines in the world.
The best wines achieve their complexity and generosity from various blends of the thirteen different grape varieties permitted. The type of soil varies, but
not nearly to the extent that it does in Bordeaux or Burgundy. It is beyond question that the top estate-bottled Châteauneuf-du-Papes compete with the finest
Burgundies and Bordeaux, yet cost much less.

 The Trimbach firm is inextricably linked with its home town of Ribeauville. The magnificent vineyards of Geisberg and Osterberg are without doubt
 two of the greatest Riesling locations in the world and produce wines that are vigorous and taut, admittedly less immediately fruity than some others but
 distinctive for their mineral character. The most eloquent example is Cuvée Frederic Emile. The soil of Clos Sainte-Hune, slightly different in composition,
 produces a somewhat rounder wine of more immediately apparent elegance, which has earned it worldwide fame. Well versed in this style and taste, Pierre
 and Jean Trimbach are skilled at buying in grapes - of all varieties capable of producing wines of the same character but accessible earlier. These grapes
 make up the firm’s famous Reserve and Reserve Personnelle wines, whose aromatic clarity is rarely found wanting. There is a preference for dry wines
 here (even those made from Pinot Gris), as they are better suited to typical French and Alsatian starters. Naturally a certain roundness is inevitable in the
 very rich vintages and Vendanges Tardives. In these cases it is necessary to wait ten years or more for the ideal balance in the mouth to develop.

        walnut and orange peel flavors remind me of a fine Oloroso Sherry.
        An essential taste experience for fans of traditional Rioja.” (93pts

Ferruccio Biondi-Santi, in the 1860s, planted a special breed of Sangiovese known as Brunello or Sangiovese Grosso. The clone was attractive because it
had smaller berries that would presumably produce more concentrated flavors. In addition, the clone was more resistant to Phylloxera, an insect destructive
to grapes’ vines at their roots. Ferruccio replanted his entire vineyard with the new clone and, voila, Brunello di Montalcino was born. He also decided to
age the wines in oak and in bottle before releasing them, which at the time was unheard of because Italians enjoyed light, young red wines. Biondi-Santi’s
wines are made in a very rustic classical style which allows them to age for very long periods of time. This is an attractive and historical selection of these
wines.

Roty possesses some of the oldest vines in all of Burgundy as they have some vines that were planted in the1880s that are still alive and producing.
Fanatical attention to detail, superb vineyard work and extremely old vines create outstanding wines, one of which is arguably the reference standard for
its appellation, the famous Charmes-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes.

 In Chablis, where most of the Domaines have significantly increased their area under vine and hence their production, the two Raveneau brothers have
 remained faithful to the 18.5 acres (7.5 hectares) they inherited from their parents, believing it would be impossible to maintain the same quality if they
 were to increase production. Every action performed here respects the Burgundy winemaking tradition: every decision is in keeping with the nature of each
 individual cuvée. The brothers’ stock of vines is confined to the best terroirs within the commune of Chablis - the Grands Crus Les Clos, Blanchot, and
 Valmur, and the Premiers Crus Vaillons, Butteaux, Montee de Tonnerre, and Chapelot, unanimously regarded as those in which the minerality of the chalk
 soils is most forcefully expressed. One could spend forever wondering what sleights of hand were responsible for producing such matchless wines that
 after 10 to 15 years of aging form a perfect blend between the honey of ripe Chardonnay and slightly salty minerality contributed by the soil, and tertiary
 notes of oyster and meadow mushroom.

 The Negociant system in Burgundy of which these 3 famous Houses are key players for the past couple of centuries, is the way that the wines of Burgundy
 traditionally have been disseminated throughout the world. There is no doubt that these 3 giants of Burgundy wine have had a hand in the success of the
 region as a whole.

 Drouhin
 Joseph Drouhin, who was born in the Chablis district, founded the firm that bears his name in Beaune in 1880; 130 years later, it is still, indeed more than
 ever, a family business. Today it is run by Philippe, Veronique, Laurent, and Frederic Drouhin (all of whom were born between 1961 and 1968) with their
 father Robert. They have not neglected the Chablis of their forefather, for the company has long owned a vast Domaine in this appellation to the north
 of Burgundy, but has also expanded further afield, establishing Drouhin Estate in Oregon - planted to Pinot Noir, of course. Nevertheless, the heart of
 its winegrowing operations, which today follows biodynamic principles, remains the Côte d’Or. The style of wine (both white and red) produced here,
 focusing on finesse, delicacy even, has thus expressed itself more strongly in the last few vintages, gaining in tension and magnitude.

 Bouchard
 In the 19th century, Bouchard Pere was the great Beaune firm that established the canons of Burgundy wine. It was taken over at the end of the 20th century
 and confirmed its status in the early years of the 21st. Unforgettable wines testify to both these facts. The firm’s wine collection is housed in a cellar at the
 Château de Beaune, a fiefdom of the company, and is stuffed with treasures that are regularly opened for the fortunate few, recalling the occasions when
 famous vintages from the past 1846, 1865, 1893, 1929, 1945, and 1947 displayed an intensity, depth, and aging potential very far removed from today’s
 continual talk of the fragility of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Many of the company’s latter-day wines, which are magnificently vinified by a team that
 brings an impressive precision to all its work from the vine to the cellar, originate in terroir of stunning quality: of the firm’s holdings of 322 acres (130
 hectares), 30 acres (12 hectares) are in Grand Cru vineyards (Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Corton, Clos de Vougeot and others), and 183 acres (74
 hectares) in Premier Cru vineyards, with a significant proportion in Beaune including the famous Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus.

 Jadot
 An engaging Beaune firm, Louis Jadot has been one of the great ambassadors of Burgundy for many years and, unlike other companies, has not suffered
 periods of passing weakness. Founded in the mid-19th century and run today by Pierre-Andre Gagey with the passionate, charismatic collusion of Jacques
 Lardiere (one of Burgundy’s most gifted winemakers), Jadot can take pride in an extensive collection of bottles illustrating the Burgundian winemaking
 genius at work across the ages - from the eternal marvels of the 19th century to the “liquid cathedrals” constructed with consummate skill by Jacques
 Lardiere over the course of a career that began in 1970. Forming the main focus of his work are the vines that either belong to the firm or which it has
 cultivated and vinified for a long period of time, such as the prestigious Domaine du Duc de Magenta in Chassagne-Montrachet. One of the most fascinating
 aspects of the work being carried out by Lardiere and Jadot is the capacity of each wine to express the personality of its terroir with an incredible richness
 of nuance, even if only a few acres separate it from that of another wine in the range.

 Burgundy is a study in micro-climates, terroir, intricate and often complicated ownership structures, as well as true-tested, age-old methods of winemaking
 that seem antiquated by modern standards, but then mysteriously produce some of the most soul-filled wines on the Planet. When France went through
 its Revolution in 1789, the new republic was eventually founded upon great principles of democracy, yet in Burgundy you find such a rare thing as a
 Monopoly, or Monopole as it is called there. It is a single owner producing wine from a single great, often historical vineyard. We like to think of these as
 Monopole Masters, even though the greatest of them all, Romanée Conti, has a section all to itself.

 Liger-Belair
 The Liger-Belair family settled in Vosne when Louis Liger-Belair, Napoleonic general, acquired the Château of Vosne in 1815. The Domaine grew
 considerably under the general’s direction and that of Louis-Charles, his adopted son who was the son of his sister. Louis-Charles married Ludovie
 Marey, a well-known family who owned vineyards and had been Negociants since the eighteenth century. When the Comte Louis-Charles died, the
 family’s holdings covered more than sixty hectares principally in the Côte de Nuits with ownership of some of France’s most prestigious appellations: the
 monopolies of La Romanée, La Tâche, La Grande Rue, a large portion of Malconsorts, parcels of Chaumes, Reignots, and Suchots in Vosne Romanée,
 Saint Georges and Vaucrains in Nuits St. Georges, Clos Vougeot and Cras in Vougeot, Chambolle, Morey, as well as Chambertin. In addition, a Domaine
 of fifteen hectares at Fleurie in the Beaujolais. Fast forward to a very sad August 31st, 1933 at the town hall of Vosne Romanée when the vineyards
 were auctioned off. The children witnessed the departure of their patrimony of La Tâche, the Malconsorts, the Brulées…..However, two of the children,
 Just, a priest, and his brother, the Comte Michel, Louis-Michel’s grandfather, banded together to buy back La Romanée, Reignots, and les Chaumes. The
 vineyards were entrusted to local vignerons, and sales to Burgundian Negociants. Louis-Michel, the present Comte de Liger-Belair created his Domaine in
 2000 by taking back 1.5 hectares of vineyards (Vosne-Romanée La Colombière, Clos du Château, 1er Cru Les Chaumes), and in 2002 he recovered another
 1.6 hectares (Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Reignots, La Romanée). In 2006, he rented 5.5 hectares more, including a large parcel of Échézeaux, Vosne-
 Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots, Les Petits Monts and Les Brûlées, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Cras, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint Georges. With
 his wife, Constance, he now manages 8.7 hectares of vines in Vosne-Romanée, Nuits St. Georges, and Flagey Échézeaux.

 mommessin
 Inherited from the Cluny monks who had cleared the land and planted vines on their properties around Mâcon, the House of Mommessin has its origins
 in southern Burgundy. In 1865, Jean-Marie Mommessin chose to set up his company at Grange-Saint-Pierre, one of the former outbuildings of the Cluny
 Abbey. It was from there that the key, which has become the symbol of the brand, was taken. The purchase of the famous Clos de Tart vineyard in 1932
 took the company to the very heart of Burgundy before its headquarters was finally transferred to Quincié-en-Beaujolais, after having been based in the
 Mâconnais region for over a century. Mommessin’s wines derive their unique character from their dual lineage, an alliance of the typically Burgundian
 quest for excellence and the bursting flavors that characterize Beaujolais wines. From now on, Mommessin’s history and quest for the treasures of the
 terroir will unfold amid the green hills of the Beaujolais region. This is where the company’s innovative spirit and open-mindedness continue to flourish.
 Here, expertise and experience, steeped in Burgundian tradition, are transmitted through to the wines from generation to generation.

 Clos de Lambrays
 Morey-Saint-Denis is not the best-known of the Côte de Nuits villages, yet the commune can boast at least four Grands Crus and possibly a fifth as Bonnes-
 Mares starts here before essentially ending up in Chambolle-Musigny. Located immediately above the village, the Grands Crus Saint-Denis, La Roche,
 and Tart et Les Lambrays all bear the prefix “Clos,” although it has been many years since the first two were enclosed by walls. The Clos des Lambrays
 is wholly owned by the Domaine that bears its name. It enjoyed considerable fame before the war thanks to the then owner Camille Rodier, founder of
 the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin (Brotherhood of the Knights of the Tasting-Cup) and author of the following line, which deserves to be heeded
 during these difficult times: “Our wines aren’t selling, so we may as well invite our friends round for a glass or two!” Today the wines produced by the
 Clos des Lambrays sell well because they have rediscovered what made them so good before: superlative finesse, the very opposite of the mammoth wines
 trampling all over the world today.
