The Magnicent Cellar of Charlie Trotters


16 November 2012
Dear Clients, What does it mean to call a restaurant iconic? Surely the quality of the cuisine is paramount and likewise a certain high standing in the public eye; such quality and care must also extend to the service of wine and food and the general ambiance of the table. That being said, its something much more than the number of years in business, the brilliance of the silver or the perpetual impossibility of securing an 8 oclock reservation. Rather, I would suggest that its more about the state of the industry before and after the restaurant came along. By this denition, there can hardly be many restaurants more iconic in America than Charlie Trotters in Chicago. Few kitchens have been the proving ground of more successful talents; few wine cellars have held more classic rarities side by side with tomorrows rising stars; few restaurants have more agreeably changed the way Americans think about food and wine. Shortly after opening in 1987 the Chicago Tribune declared Trotters the long-awaited return of civility to the Chicago dining scene. Civility would reign at 816 West Armitage for the next twenty-ve years, changing and evolving into one of the most respected dining destinations in the United States. Charlie Trotters is itself a story of evolution and renement in response to the challenge of how to learn from what you have done and make it better, new again, fresh and perpetually timely and relevant. As the kitchen is to the chef, the wine list is the sommeliers toolbox, and no sommelier in American found himself better equipped to change the way we drink than Larry Stone, M.S. The relationship forged between the kitchen and cellar would be nothing short of revolutionary: a true collaboration between sommelier and chef with the goal of the best possible harmony for guests of the restaurant. A truly original wine program, including the sommeliers that maintain it, has the potential to change the way the public thinks about wine, both through food and wine pairings and the introduction of new producers and the correct service of the classics. All good thingsor so the saying goes; the nal plates were served at Trotters at the end of August this year. But the inuence of twenty-ve years of unique talents in collaboration will continue to be felt throughout the restaurant industry and beyond for a long time to come. We salute those professionals and their tremendous achievements and lasting inuence. It is therefore our distinct pleasure to offer the following selection of the nest wines from the Magnicent Cellar of Charlie Trotters, to be followed by a companion Online-Only Auction of more ne and rare wines from November 20th through December 4th. Sincerely, Per Holmberg Head of Department

CHAMPAGNE TO START KrugVintage 1988 Reims The 1988 Krug was very lemony, minerally and fresh on the nose, showing fairly little development. On the palate the wine was dense and highly structured. With time in the glass, the bouquet developed: rst smoky aromas, then tropical fruit notes such as guava and passion fruit, and nally ground coffee. Astonishingly good.

The best of all possible world, perhaps, will be when this vintage of DPO has fteen years on the cork. Lets revisit in 26!

Dom PrignonVintage 1996 Epernay Both bottles in coffrets The 1996 Dom Prignon was showing extremely well. The wine is still very youthful, but starting to open up nicely. On the nose there were the soft oral and brioche aromas that characterizes the best of Dom Prignon, a fresh, lemony fruit, and a smoky complexity. On the palate the texture is very ne and the wine is showing a very nice evolution certainly not mature, but beginning to open up well. This is the greatest recent vintage of Dom Prignon, and properly stored it will last for decades to come. Dinner with friends in New Jersey, CC, July 2011 2 bottles per lot $400-600

On the palate there was a creamy texture enlivened by a still vibrant fresh acidity. Mature, but not overly so - fantastic zz. Dinner with friends on Nantucket, CC, July 2010 2 bottles per lot $1,400-1,800 Chteau PavieVintage 1998 Saint-Emilion, 1er grand cru class The 1998 Pavie was surprisingly fresh, with a ripe, young, elegant currant fruit character on the nose. Admittedly, there was still a bit of French oak that needs to be resolved, but all in all, the wine shows admirable restraint, elegance and balance. The texture on the palate is harmonious, with a balanced extraction and no hint of the heaviness of some recent vintages. Really very good. At Christies.

TROTANOY Another star orbiting in Jean-Pierre Mouiexs sky, Chteau Trotanoy has been a prominent Pomerol estate since 1953. Only one short kilometer from Ptrus, the 8 hectares sit proudly on a high plateau overlooking the village church. 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc are planted on the clay and gravel soil, with grapes hand harvested and fermented in small concrete vats. It is bottled unltered after its maturation in a mixture of new and old barriques for 18-20 months. Chteau TrotanoyVintage 1998 Pomerol Parcel: lots 416-418 1 dozen bottles per lot $2,000-3,000

Chteau LaeurVintage 1995 Pomerol The 95 Laeur is an appealingly exotic wine, with its ripe plum and blackberry fruit colored with a pronounced savory note, hints of earth, trule gunsmoke and Havana cigar. On the palate the wine is round and dense, with rm tannins, great balance and wonderful length. Nuanced and complex, this is Pomerol for the connoisseur from a vintage that is approachable now but should age well for years to come. Undeniably one of the greats.

Very sweet, tobacco-like Graves avour and a perfect elliptical shape. More recently, more intense than the Chteau Haut-Brion, tinged with cherry red; more scented too, earthy, cheese rind, singed tobacco, pebbly, its crispy fruit opening up richly; more astringent than the Haut-Brion, crisper fruit, more aggressive, with excellent tannin and acidity.

Chteau Late-RothschildVintage 1961 Pauillac, 1er cru class Levels: three top shoulder, two upper shoulder; nicked and scuffed capsules, one slight signs of old seepage, bin soiled labels, two with braille sticker adhered to label, one torn This bottle was the perfect riposte to those who denigrate the work of Late in this vintage. The wine had a hugely complex nose with hints of fresh blackcurrant, g, cedar, smoke, allspice and a wonderful oral note. On the palate the wine has a marvelous texture: vibrant and fresh, yet still powerful, deep and long. Really a very good bottle indeed. A wine that still denitely warrants further cellaring if you can possibly wait. At a Christies dinner at Lung King Heen, CC, Hong Kong, May 2011 5 bottles per lot $8,000-12,000

On the palate there are rm tannins and incredible density. Wonderful! At a client dinner in Tokyo. CC, May 2010 1 dozen bottles per lot $7,000-10,000

Chteau Haut-BrionVintage 1995 Pessac-Lognan, 1er cru class At a recent dinner, the 95 Haut-Brion was charming and immensely likeable, with perfumed nose still giving a sense of very youthful red berry fruits a bit of oak, and the beginnings of some cedary complexity. On the palate the wine had a silken texture yet was still tannic and rm, with impressive length. At a dinner organized by the Chteau in New York, CC, July 2010 4 bottles per lot $1,200-1,600

Chteau Mouton-RothschildVintage 1961 Pauillac, 1er cru class Levels: top shoulder; one slightly crowned capsule, two lightly corroded at top, one torn and partially missing label Surprisingly youthful, this wine shows curranty, ripe red fruits with an appropriate cedar/lead pencil/black trufe character from long cellaring. On the palate the wine is still rm but very velvety and expressive as well, with a penetratingly long nish that shows all the subtle complexity to great advantage. Monumental wine.

2,700-3,400 Chteau Haut-BrionVintage 1999 Pessac-Lognan, 1er cru class An expressive nose showing black and red berry fruit with a spicy character, typical mineral-earth element, and a well-integrated oak component. On the palate the wine is medium to full in body with a rm tannic structure. The wine is more generous than above, however and enlivened by crisp acidity. On the palate the fruit is very ripe. The nish is long. The blend for the Haut Brion was 60% Merlot, and the wine was aged in 75% new oak barrels. CC, July 2000 5 bottles per lot $1,300-1,800

441

Chteau Mouton-RothschildVintage 1995 Pauillac, 1er cru class This wine shows a very dark color and a very closed nose, although the impression of super-ripe fruit is obvious. On the palate, it shows lots of extract and ripeness, mouthlling texture, and ripe tannins on the palate. Very good length. CC, April 2004 6 bottles per lot $1,500-2,200

GAJA Piedmonts famed Gaja estate was founded in 1859 and is currently led by fourth generation winemaker Angelo Gaja. After joining the winery in 1961 he has been a driving force behind many of the estates changes and innovations. Always motivated by the pursuit of quality one key innovation was the decision to bottle his Sor San Lorenzo holding seprately for the rst time in 1967, closely followed by Sor Tildn in 1970 and nally Costa Russi in 1978.

HARLAN ESTATE Bill Harlans goal throughout the past quarter century has remained constant: to create an American rst growth by expressing the genius of one particular site. With his keen eye for real estate, Harlan identied a property near the town of Oakville that had never been planted, and purchased the 23-acre nucleus of this property in 1984. Additional purchases and land trades eventually increased the total to 240 acres that reach an elevation of 1225 feet. Harlan Estate vineyards, however, are limited to a steeply terraced band between 350-550 feet elevation in order to keep the grapes cool. Being a perfectionist, Harlan and his team (the formidable duo of winemaker Robert Levy and consulting oenologist Michel Rolland) rejected two vintages as unworthy before deciding to release the 300 case production of the 1990 vintage. Since this time, production has climbed, but still hovers at just 1,8002,000 cases per vintage. All truly great wines have an essential nature that is difcult to pin down, since one of their common characteristics is great complexity. Standout vintages offered here include the 1991, 1997, and 2002. Harlan EstateVintage 1991 Napa Valley Level: into neck 1 bottle

Chteau Haut-BrionVintage 1982 Pessac-Lognan, 1er cru class Level: top shoulder; nicked capsule, signs of old seepage, nicked and lightly bin soiled label Amazing and extraordinary, this was undoubtedly one of the wines of the night. The nose showed a pronounced, pungent nose of pineapple up front with a toasty mineral and smoke complexity that develops with time in the glass. On the palate the wine is rich and still fairly youthful, with a zesty crisp acidity and impressive length. A true pleasure to drink.

Chteau Late-RothschildVintage 1986 Pauillac, 1er cru class Level: bottom neck; remnants of tissue on bottle, signs of old seepage at top The 86 Late was a bit closed at rst, and when it began to open seemed surprisingly evolved, with signs of maturity, not incommensurate with age, but nevertheless showing developed cigar box and cocoa aromas on the nose. On the palate there was great intensity and verve after an initial reticence followed by a lovely nish. Delicious wine. Dinner with a consignor. CC, November 2009 1 impriale per lot $7,500-9,500

On the palate the wine is still intensely primary, with very rm tannins, fresh acidity, a high level of extract, and quite a nish. Still far too young to drink, this Latour should age for decades to come it has all the elements in all the right places, and now all it needs is time.

It showed an uncharacteristically feminine note of violets to the fresh currant fruit character, and on the palate it was silken and fresh. With time in the glass, however, it took on weight and showed a more typical density and weight. At Maison Pourcel in Shanghai, CC, September 2010 1 impriale per lot $2,400-3,000

Chteau dYquemVintage 1988 Sauternes, 1er grand cru class Level: into neck; lightly nicked label As on other occasions, a tremendous wine, with great aromatic precision and depth that other chteaux do not exhibit. Tropical, spice and lactic aromas are denitely there, but the botrytis is more pronounced, and there is a deep note of caramel that rounds out the impression and echoes on the nish.

Chteau dYquemVintage 1990 Sauternes, 1er grand cru class Level: bottom neck Wonderful. At a recent dinner, the 90 Yquem was dark in color, but on the nose no excessive caramel notes and plenty of ripe tropical fruit, butter, and botrytis. On the palate the wine was decadent and rich, with very good length, crisp, clean, fantastic. CC, at the Mount Sinai benet, February 2010 1 impriale per lot $2,800-3,500

VERY RARE NEBUCHADNEZZAR OF KRACHER TROCKENBEERENAUSLESE Kracher, Grand Cuve, Trockenbeerenauslese #7, Nouvelle Vague Vintage 2005 Neusiedlersee Signed by Gerhard Kracher in 2008 The Chardonnay-Welschriesling blend 2005 #7 Grande Cuvee Trockenbeerenauslese Nouvelle Vague offers impressive aromatic complexity, suggesting brown-spiced apple and quince jellies, glazed pineapple, dried apricots, honey, musk, and trufe. Tactile spice and surprising fresh fruit character derive contrast in the mouth from creamy, oily textural richness and suggestions of nut brittle and chocolate. This nishes with uncanny freshness and lift for a wine so rich and nobly rotten. Look for a good two decades of interesting evolution here.

Barbaresco, Sor San LorenzoVintage 1988 Piedmont, Gaja Level: 1.0cm below capsule A wonderful wine of elegance, nuance, and sophistication, the 88 Sor San Lorenzo showed a complex nose of sour cherry, tar, violets, cedar and mineral on the nose rich, but not overbearing, the bouquet was very elegant. On the palate the wine is silky yet persistence, with tannic backbone and a good acid balance, but a very supple, friendly, almost lilting texture that rolls around the palate until the lingering nish is done.

Sine Qua Non, In FlagranteVintage 2000 California Signed bottle The 2000 In Flagrante (a 725-case blend of 86% Syrah, 10% Grenache, and 4% Viognier) is a world-class, provocative effort. It reveals many of the same aromatic and avor components found in the 2001 Midnight Oil and 2002 Syrah-dominated, unnamed offering. A black color is followed by a seamless effort loaded with blackberry, honey, and ower aromas, and an extraordinarily long, concentrated nish. As with all great wines, tasting notes/descriptors just cant do it justice. Among the recent SQN Syrahs, it is a strikingly elegant and powerful wine that has a decidedly French air to it.

La TcheVintage 1999 Cte de Nuits, Domaine de la Romane-Conti Lightly scuffed label 99 La Tche was an amazing wine, with a pronounced and forceful richly fruity nose of spiced dark fruit and cassis, almost molasses, with licorice, pepper and violet notes and an undercurrent of new leather and black trufe, essentially without any development or secondary notes. On the palate the wine was dense and rich, with rm tannins, lots of extract and a rm, classical structure that is years away from opening up. Best not to open for at least another decade if you can wait. Stupendous wine. In Dijon, CC, January 2012 1 bottle per lot $2,600-3,200

HENRI JAYER Wines produced from his small 6.30 hectare Domaine, based in and around Vosne-Romane are arguably some of the nest wines ever produced in Burgundy, including the legendary Richebourg, Echzeaux, and Cros Parantoux. The Domaine included holdings in Echzeaux, Richebourg and also vineyards in three Premier Cru sites Les Brles, Les Beaumonts and Cros Parantoux in Vosne-Romane. Jayer wines are superbly concentrated, extraordinarily complex, harmonious and seductive and have achieved a cult following amongst Burgundy lovers. They are very highly sought after with high prices to match. Jayer was a pioneer and rmly believed that care in the vineyard was fundamental to producing ne Burgundy. Treatments were kept to a minimum and there was a rigorous selection of grapes eliminating any sub-standard fruit. Yields were kept very low. Only natural yeasts were used for the fermentation which added complexity and individuality to the wines. A pre-fermentation cold maceration by reducing the vat temperature to 15 degrees for four or ve days was used to extract additional colour and avours. The majority of the wines were aged in new Tronais oak barrels. As few rackings as possible and no ltration ensured that all of the subtle nuances, complexity and concentration were preserved. Sadly, Henri Jayer, died on 20th September 2006, however his work continues to inspire many young Burgundy growers. RichebourgVintage 1986 Cte de Nuits, H. Jayer Levels: 2.0cm or better 4 bottles

Vosne-Romane Cros ParantouxVintage 1997 Cte de Nuits, H. Jayer An exquisiste bottle of 1997 Cros Parantoux showed profuse and complex aromas that ranged from black plum and g to trufe, licorice, and a crazy, almost animal sort of funky, sauvage aroma. Brett? Im sure, but sublime nonetheless. On the palate the wine was very rich, with a dense yet silky texture, rm tannins, balanced acidity, and great length. Exhilerating.

DOMAINE LEROY Domaine Leroy is the creation of one of the most determined, dynamic and passionate Burgundians, Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy. For many years co-director of the Domaine de la Romane-Conti, she created her own Domaine from 1988, with purchases of Richebourg, Chambertin, Romane-Saint-Vivant and a further 50 acres of Burgundys greatest terroirs. She rapidly pioneered cultivating her vineyards organically and bio-dynamically. She championed low yields and a ruthless pursuit of the highest quality. American wine lovers were the rst to recognise and embrace her wines, and the greatest of her bottlings have consistently come to the nest collections in the USA. The wines come from some of Burgundys rarest, greatest localities. They have saturated, purplegarnet colours in youth, and are striking for the crystal clarity of their expression of Pinot Noir aromas. Red fruits mingle with spiciness, clean earth, forest oor, liquorice in tumbling complexities, as the wines evolve with bottleage. On the palate, there is structure without excess, dense fruit, purity of expression, subtle management of tannins and extraordinary length of avour. From a standing start a mere 15 years ago, this Domaine was immediately able to command prices alongside the most legendary of Burgundys bottlings. The consistency of Madame BizeLeroys wine-making throughout this recent, Golden Decade for Burgundy, has been exceptional. A.H. RichebourgVintage 1997 Cte de Nuits, Leroy Scuffed label 1 bottle

350-460 Romane-Saint-VivantVintage 2001 Cte de Nuits, Leroy Produced from a crop that yielded merely 13 - 14 hl/ha, this wine was fairly light in color, yet very expressive on the nose. The rst hint of evolution is beginning to show, with vague aromas of mineral, game and trufe beginning to color the joyful red berry fruit character. On the palate the tannins are silken and the balance is very elegant. Great length. CC, April 2009 3 bottles per lot $2,200-3,000

1,300-2,100 Clos de VougeotVintage 1999 Cte de Nuits, Leroy In original wooden case The 99 Leroy Clos de Vougeot was the Burgundy of the night, albeit far from ready to drink. The nose shows a youthful very ripe black cherry and cassis fruit character and hints of licorice, ve spice powder and ginger on the nose along with a rich, dense texture on the palate, plenty of tannins and an impressive amount of extract. Somewhat hard at present, this has the substance to age into a truly spectacular wine. At Mark Taylors in Atlanta, CC, March 2012 1 dozen bottles per lot $6,000-9,000

An intense vinous experience, the 99 Coche Corton Charlemagne showed a profound mineral magic on the nose with notes of candid lemon peel, papaya and still a bit of wood. On the palate the wine was unbelievably concentrated and powerful, with a dense texture, rm acidity and exquisite length.

Meursault-PerriresVintage 1999 Cte de Beaune, Lafon Perhaps the best bottle of Lafon Perrires I have ever had, this showed classic, elegant restrain on the nose with a lemony drop fruit nely accented with notes of mineral and just a hint of butter, fresh cream and spice. At this stage the wood and winemaking inuences were very well integrated, yet the wine wasnt really showing many mature aromas yet a very nice point in its evolution. On the palate the wine had a silken texture, a lovely density, and a ne, elegant balance. Very impressive. Dinner at Tin Lung Heen at the Hong Kong Ritz, CC, July 2011 1 bottle per lot $200-300

SAUZET MontrachetVintage 1995 Cte de Beaune, Sauzet One nicked label 2 bottles

RAMONET The continued success of Ramonet is due to the team work of brothers of Noel in the cellar and Jean-Claude in the vineyard. Grape bunches are partially de-stemmed, briey cold soaked in cement and macerated for ten days. The juice is generally aged in one third new barrels, in either Alliers or Vosges oak depending on the vineyards needs. Light ning in bentonite lends a distinctive spearmint quality that highlights the minerality of the wines. Muscular, full bodied concentrated wines, capable of being aged for a long time and Ramonet arguably take their Btard Montrachet, a smoky, oily, and expressive wine, to heights close to the brightly lit sun of Montrachet. Among the premier crus, the Ruchottes often stands out with honey suckle, white trufe, spiciness and outstanding length. MontrachetVintage 1997 Cte de Beaune, Ramonet One nicked label 9 bottles

On the palate the wine had an almost red wine-like in texture size massive and powerful, yet brightened by very fresh acidity and wonderful balance, leading on to an amazingly long nish. Vivid, youthful, absolutely unforgettable. Dinner with friends on Nantucket, CC, July 2010 1 bottle per lot $450-650

Important Notices and Explanation of Cataloguing Practice


IMPORTANT NOTICES CHRISTIES INTEREST IN PROPERTY CONSIGNED FOR AUCTION From time to time, Christies may offer a lot which it owns in whole or in part. Such property is identified in the catalogue with the symbol next to its lot number. On occasion, Christies has a direct financial interest in lots consigned for sale, which may include guaranteeing a minimum price or making an advance to the consignor that is secured solely by consigned property. Such property is identified in the catalogue with the symbol next to the lot number. This symbol will be used both in cases where Christies holds the financial interest on its own, and in cases where Christies has financed all or part of such interest through third parties. When a third party agrees to finance all or part of Christies interest in a lot, it takes on all or part of the risk of the lot not being sold, and will be remunerated in exchange for accepting this risk. The third party may also bid for the lot. Where it does so, and is the successful bidder, the remuneration may be netted against the final purchase price. If the lot is not sold, the third party may incur a loss. Where Christies has an ownership or financial interest in every lot in the catalogue, Christies will not designate each lot with a symbol, but will state its interest at the front of the catalogue. In this catalogue, if property has u next to the lot number, Christies guarantee of a minimum price has been fully financed through third parties. PROPERTY INCORPORATING MATERIALS FROM ENDANGERED AND OTHER PROTECTED SPECIES Property made of or incorporating (irrespective of percentage) endangered and other protected species of wildlife are marked with the symbol ~ in the catalogue. Such material includes, among other things, ivory, tortoiseshell, crocodile skin, rhinoceros horn, whale bone and certain species of coral, together with Brazilian rosewood. Prospective purchasers are advised that several countries prohibit altogether the importation of property containing such materials, and that other countries require a permit {e.g., a CITES permit) from the relevant regulatory agencies in the countries of exportation as well as importation. Accordingly, clients should familiarize themselves with the relevant customs laws and regulations prior to bidding on any property with wildlife material if they intend to import the property into another country. For example, the U.S. generally prohibits the importation of articles containing species that it has designated as endangered or threatened if those articles are less than 100 years old. Please note that it is the clients responsibility to determine and satisfy the requirements of any applicable laws or regulations applying to the export or import of property containing endangered and other protected wildlife material. The inability of a client to export or import property containing endangered and other protected wildlife material is not a basis for cancellation or rescission of the sale. Please note also that lots containing potentially regulated wildlife material are marked as a convenience to our clients, but Christies does not accept liability for errors or for failing to mark lots containing protected or regulated species. OPTIONS TO BUY PARCELS A parcel, as denoted in the catalogue, is a sequence of lots carrying the same estimates and consisting of the same type of wine, quantity and bottle size. In the sale, the buyer of the first lot of a parcel of wine will have, at the discretion of the auctioneer, the option to take any or all further lots in the parcel for the same hammer price. If the option is not exercised on all lots in the same parcel, the auctioneer will open bidding on the next unsold lot and offer the buyer of that lot the option to take any or all of the remaining lots in the parcel sequence. Absentee bids submitted on any lot in a parcel will, if unsuccessful, be placed on successive lots in the parcel until such bid is successful or the parcel has ended. Bidding shall continue in the same manner until all lots in the parcel have been offered and declared sold or unsold by the auctioneer. CLASSIFICATIONS Classifications in the text are for identification purposes only and are based on the official 1855 classification of the Mdoc and other standard sources All wines are bottled by the producer (Chteau or estate owner) unless otherwise indicated by the initials Bordeaux Bottled BB and English Bottled EB. ULLAGES AND CORKS OF OLD WINES Wines are described in this catalogue as correctly as can be ascertained at time of going to press, but buyers of old wines must make appropriate allowances for natural variations of ullages, conditions of cases, labels, corks and wine. No returns will be accepted. ULLAGE The amount by which level of wine is short of being full: these levels may vary according to age of the wines and, as far as can be ascertained by inspection prior to the sale, are described in the catalogue. SHIPPING AND COLLECTION: WINE All wines are held at NYWines/Christies facility at The Wine Cellarage. Buyers are expected to remove their property within 7 calendar days of the auction. A NYWinesChristies Collection and Delivery Form is enclosed with each invoice and is available on the Christies website. It is the buyers responsibility to pick up purchases or make all shipping arrangements. After payment has been made in full, NYWinesChristies can arrange property packing and shipping at the buyers request and expense.

ALL DIMENSIONS ARE APPROXIMATE CONDITION REPORTS Christies catalogues include references to condition only in descriptions of multiple works (such as prints, books and wine). Please contact the Specialist Department for a condition report on a particular lot. Condition reports are provided as a service to interested clients. Prospective buyers should note that descriptions of property are not warranties and that each lot is sold as is.

CAPSULE
Catalogue descriptions

3cm 5cm 7cm

3 4 5

into neck: Level of young wines. Exceptionally good in wines over 10 years old. bottom neck: Perfectly good for any age of wine. Outstandingly good for a wine of 20 years in bottle, or longer. very top-shoulder top-shoulder: Normal for any claret 15 years old or older. upper-shoulder: Slight natural reduction through the easing of the cork and evaporation through cork and capsule. Usually no problem. Acceptable for any wine over 20 years old. Exceptional for pre-1950 wines.

7 8

mid-shoulder: Probably some weakening of the cork and some risk. Not abnormal for wines 30/40 years of age. Estimates usually take this into account. mid-low-shoulder: Some risk. Low estimates. low-shoulder: Risky and usually only accepted for sale if wine or label exceptionally rare or interesting. Always offered with low estimate.

Because of the slope of shoulder it is impractical to describe levels as mid-shoulder, etc. Wherever appropriate the level between cork and wine will be measured and catalogued in centimetres. The condition and drinkability of burgundy is less affected by ullage than its equivalent from Bordeaux. For example, a 5 to 7 cm. ullage in a 30-year-old burgundy can be considered normal, indeed good for age, 3.5 to 4 cm. excellent for age, even 7cm. rarely a risk.

BOTTLE SIZES magnum = two regular bottles marie-jeanne = three regular bottles double-magnum = four regular bottles jeroboam = four regular bottles (Burgundy, Champagne) jeroboam = six regular bottles (Bordeaux) (or 5 litres) impriale (Bordeaux) methuselah (Burgundy) = eight regular bottles = eight regular bottles

SPECIAL NOTICE Though every effort is made to describe or measure the levels of older vintages, corks over twenty years old begin to lose their elasticity and levels can change between cataloguing and sale. Old corks have also been known to fail during or after shipment. We therefore repeat that there is always a risk of cork failure with old wines and due allowance must be made for this. Under no circumstances can an adjustment of price or credit be made after delivery except under the terms stated in Paragraph 5 of the Conditions of Sale. Unless otherwise stated, Bordeaux are chteau bottled and all wines are bottled in the country of production. Important note regarding opening of cases and listing of levels: Christies and NYWines general policy is to open all wood cases and to describe levels. Bidders must make allowances for reasonable variations in ullage which may be encountered in cases older than twenty years. Additionally all wine younger than twenty years have levels bottom neck/2.5cm or better unless otherwise noted.

Buying at Christies
CONDITIONS OF SALE Bidders are strongly encouraged to read the Conditions of Sale contained in this catalogue that state the terms governing the purchase of all property sold at auction and the conditions upon which Christies and NYWines guarantees the authenticity of property offered for sale. ESTIMATES Catalogue entries include descriptions for every lot and a price range that is our specialists opinion of the price expected at auction. Estimates are based upon prices recently paid at auction for comparable property and take into account condition, rarity, quality and provenance (history of previous ownership). Estimates are prepared well in advance of the sale and are subject to revision. Buyers should not rely upon estimates as a representation or prediction of actual selling prices. Estimates do not include the buyers premium or sales tax. Where Estimate on Request appears, please contact the Specialist Department for further information. RESERVES Unless otherwise indicated, all lots in this catalogue are offered subject to a reserve. The reserve is the confidential minimum price the consignor will accept and below which a lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the low pre-sale estimate. Lots that are not subject to a reserve are identified by the symbol next to the lot number. BUYERS PREMIUM FOR WINE Christies charges a premium to the buyer on the final bid price of each lot of wine sold at the following rates: 21% of the final bid price of each lot. For all lots, taxes are payable on the premium at the applicable rate. PRE-AUCTION VIEWING Pre-auction viewings are open to the public and free of charge. Christies specialists are available to give advice at viewings or by appointment. We encourage prospective buyers to examine lots thoroughly and to request condition reports. Exceptions: Wine: All viewings are by appointment only. To make arrangements please contact the Wine Department BIDDER REGISTRATION Prospective buyers should register for a numbered bidding paddle at least 30 minutes before the sale. New clients, or those who have not made a recent purchase at Christies, will be asked to supply a bank reference to register. To avoid any delay in the release of purchases, please pre-arrange check or credit approval through Christies Credit Department at +1 212 636 2490 or by fax at +1 212 636 4943. BIDDING The auctioneer accepts bids from those present in the saleroom, from telephone bidders or by absentee written bids left with Christies in advance of the auction. The auctioneer may also execute bids on behalf of the consignor up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by entering bids in response to saleroom, telephone, and/or absentee bids. The auctioneer will not specifically identify bids placed on behalf of the consignor. Under no circumstances will the auctioneer place any bid on behalf of the consignor at or above the reserve. Please note New York State law requires that buyers of alcoholic beverages must be at least 21 years of age. ABSENTEE BIDS Absentee bids are written instructions from prospective buyers directing Christies to bid on their behalf up to a maximum amount specified for each lot. Christies staff will attempt to execute an absentee bid at the lowest possible price taking into account the reserve price and other bids. If identical bids are received from two or more parties, the first bid received by Christies will take priority. Absentee bids submitted on no reserve lots will, in the absence of a higher bid, be executed at approximately 50% of the low pre sale estimate or at the amount of the bid if it is less than 50% of the low pre-sale estimate.

Conditions of Sale for Wine


These Conditions of Sale and the Important Notices and Explanation of Cataloguing Practice contain all the terms on which Christies, NYWines and the seller contract with the buyer. They may be amended by posted notices or oral announcements made during the sale. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound by these terms. 1. CHRISTIES AND NYWINES AS AGENT Except as otherwise stated Christies and NYWines acts as agent for the seller. The contract for the sale of the property is therefore made between the seller and the buyer. 2. BEFORE THE SALE (a) Examination of property Prospective buyers are strongly advised to examine personally any property in which they are interested, before the auction takes place. Condition reports are usually available on request. Neither Christies, NYWines nor the seller provides any guarantee in relation to the nature of the property. The property is sold as is. (b) Catalogue and other descriptions Our cataloguing practice is explained in the Important Notices and Explanation of Cataloguing Practice after the catalogue entries. All statements by us in the catalogue entry for the property or in the condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, are statements of opinion and are not to be relied on as statements of fact. Such statements do not constitute a representation, warranty or assumption of liability by us of any kind. References in the catalogue entry or the condition report to damage or restoration are for guidance only and should be evaluated by personal inspection by the bidder or a knowledgeable representative. The absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as a statement that this is the price at which the item will sell or its value for any other purpose. Except as set forth in paragraph 6 below, neither Christies, NYWines nor the seller is responsible in any way for errors and omissions in the catalogue or any supplemental material. (c) Buyers responsibility All property is sold as is without any representation or warranty of any kind by Christies, NYWines or the seller. Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of the property and the matters referred to in the catalogue entry. 3. AT THE SALE (a) Refusal of admission Christies and NYWines have the right, at our complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or participation in any auction and to reject any bid. (b) Registration before bidding Prospective buyers who wish to bid in the saleroom can register online in advance of the sale, or can come to the saleroom on the day of the sale approximately 30 minutes before the start of the sale to register in person. A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification before bidding. We may require the production of bank or other financial references. (c) Bidding as principal When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyers premium and all applicable taxes, plus all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing with Christies before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Christies, and that Christies will only look to the principal for payment. (d) Absentee bids We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written bids delivered to us prior to the sale for the convenience of clients who are not present at the auction in person, by an agent or by telephone. Bids must be placed in the currency of the place of the sale. Please refer to the catalogue for the Absentee Bids Form. If we receive written bids on a particular lot for identical amounts, and at the auction these are the highest bids on the lot, it will be sold to the person whose written bid was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with it. (e) Telephone bids Telephone bids will be accepted for lots with low-end estimates of $1,500 and above, no later than 24 hours prior to the sale and only if the capacity of our pool of staff phone bidders allows. Arrangements to bid in languages other than English must be made well in advance of the sale date. Telephone bids may be recorded. By bidding on the telephone, prospective purchasers consent to the recording of their conversations. Christies offers all absentee and telephone bidding services as a convenience to our clients, but will not be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids. (f) Currency converter At some auctions a currency converter may be operated. Errors may occur in the operation of the currency converter and we do not accept liability to bidders who follow the currency converter rather than the actual bidding in the saleroom. (g) Video or digital images At some auctions there may be a video or digital screen. Errors may occur in its operation and in the quality of the image and we do not accept liability for such errors. (h) Reserves Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate printed in the catalogue. If any lots are not subject to a reserve, they will be identified with the symbol next to the lot number. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. Absentee bids submitted on no reserve lots will, in the absence of a higher bid, be executed at approximately 50% of the low pre sale estimate or at the amount of the bid if it is less than 50% of the low pre-sale estimate. (i) Auctioneers discretion The auctioneer has the right at his absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he may decide, to withdraw or divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and, in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive. (j) Successful bid and passing of risk Subject to the auctioneers discretion, the highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer and the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale between the seller and the buyer. Risk and responsibility for the lot (including frames or glass where relevant) passes to the buyer at the expiration of seven calendar days from the date of the sale or on collection by the buyer if earlier. 4. AFTER THE SALE (a) Buyers premium In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay to us the buyers premium together with any applicable value added tax, sales or compensating use tax or equivalent tax in the place of sale. The buyers premium for wine is 21% of the hammer price on each lot. (b) Payment and passing of title Immediately following the sale, the buyer must provide us with his or her name and permanent address and, if so requested, details of the bank from which payment will be made. The buyer must pay the full amount due (comprising the hammer price, buyers premium and any applicable taxes) not later than 4.30pm on the seventh calendar day following the sale. This applies even if the buyer wishes to export the lot and an export license is, or may be, required. The buyer will not acquire title to the lot until all amounts due to us from the buyer have been received by us in good cleared funds even in circumstances where we have released the lot to the buyer. (c) Collection of purchases We shall be entitled to retain items sold until all amounts due to us, or to Christies International plc, or to any of its affiliates, subsidiaries or parent companies worldwide, have been received in full in good cleared funds or until the buyer has satisfied such other terms as we, in our sole discretion, shall require. Subject to this, the buyer shall collect purchased lots within seven calendar days from the date of the sale unless otherwise agreed between us and the buyer. (d) Packing, handling and shipping Although we shall use reasonable efforts to take care when handling, packing and shipping a purchased lot, we are not responsible for the acts or omissions of third parties whom we might retain for these purposes. Similarly, where we may suggest other handlers, packers or carriers if so requested, we do not accept responsibility or liability for their acts or omissions.

(e) Export license Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, the fact that the buyer wishes to apply for an export license does not affect his or her obligation to make payment within seven days nor our right to charge interest or storage charges on late payment. We shall not be obliged to rescind a sale nor to refund any interest or other expenses incurred by the buyer where payment is made by the buyer in circumstances where an export license is required. (f) Remedies for non payment If the buyer fails to make payment in full in good cleared funds within the time required by paragraph 4(b) above, we shall be entitled in our absolute discretion to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies (in addition to asserting any other rights or remedies available to us by law): (i) (ii) to charge interest at such rate as we shall reasonably decide; to hold the defaulting buyer liable for the total amount due and to commence legal proceedings for its recovery together with interest, legal fees and costs to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law; to cancel the sale; to resell the property publicly or privately on such terms as we shall think fit; to pay the seller an amount up to the net proceeds payable in respect of the amount bid by the defaulting buyer; to set off against any amounts which we, or Christies International plc, or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries or parent companies worldwide, may owe the buyer in any other transactions, the outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the buyer; where several amounts are owed by the buyer to us, or to Christies International plc, or to any of its affiliates, subsidiaries or parent companies worldwide, in respect of different transactions, to apply any amount paid to discharge any amount owed in respect of any particular transaction, whether or not the buyer so directs; to reject at any future auction any bids made by or on behalf of the buyer or to obtain a deposit from the buyer before accepting any bids; to exercise all the rights and remedies of a person holding security over any property in our possession owned by the buyer, whether by way of pledge, security interest or in any other way, to the fullest extent permitted by the law of the place where such property is located. The buyer will be deemed to have granted such security to us and we may retain such property as collateral security for such buyers obligations to us; to take such other action as we deem necessary or appropriate.

of whatever kind associated with both sales or otherwise arising from the default. If we pay any amount to the seller under paragraph (v) above, the buyer acknowledges that Christies shall have all of the rights of the seller, however arising, to pursue the buyer for such amount. (g) Failure to collect purchases Where purchases are not collected within seven calendar days from the date of the sale, whether or not payment has been made, we shall be permitted to remove the property to a third party warehouse at the buyers expense, and only release the items after payment in full has been made of removal, storage, handling, insurance and any other costs incurred, together with payment of all other amounts due to us. 5. EXTENT OF CHRISTIES AND NYWINES LIABILITY Neither the seller, Christies, nor NYWines nor any of their officers, employees or agents, are responsible for the correctness of any statement of whatever kind concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in description or for any faults or defects in any lot. Except as stated below, neither the seller, Christies, nor NYWines, nor any of their officers, employees or agents, give any representation, warranty or guarantee or assume any liability of any kind in respect of any lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition, attribution, authenticity, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibition history, literature or historical relevance. Except as required by local law any warranty of any kind whatsoever is excluded by this paragraph. Notwithstanding any other terms of these Conditions of Sale, if within 30 days after the sale, Christies and NYWines have received from the original buyer of any property notice of a claim in writing that any lot is short or has suffered breakage, then Christies and NYWines in their sole discretion will decide any such claim as between the consignor and the buyer and may rescind the sale and refund the purchase price received. The benefits of the warranty are not assignable and shall apply only to the original buyer of the lot as shown on the invoice originally issued by Christies and NYWines when the lot was sold at auction. The original buyer must have remained the owner of the lot without disposing of any interest in it to any third party. The buyers sole and exclusive remedy against Christies, NYWines and the seller, in place of any other remedy which might be available, is the cancellation of the sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid for the lot. Neither Christies, NYWines nor the seller will be liable for any special, incidental or consequential damages including, without limitation, loss of profits nor for interest. 6. COPYRIGHT The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material produced by or for Christies, relating to a lot including the contents of this catalogue, is and shall remain at all times the property of Christies and shall not be used by the buyer, nor by anyone else, without our prior written consent. Christies and the seller make no representation or warranty that the buyer of a property will acquire any copyright or other reproduction rights in it.

7. SEVERABILITY If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part shall be discounted and the rest of the conditions shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law. 8. LAW AND JURISDICTION The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to these Conditions of Sale, the conduct of the auction and any matters connected with any of the foregoing shall be governed and interpreted by the laws of the jurisdiction in which the auction is held. By bidding at auction, whether present in person or by agent, by written bid, telephone or other means, the buyer shall be deemed to have submitted, for the benefit of Christies, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that country, state, county or province, and (if applicable) of the federal courts sitting in such state. SPECIAL NOTICE Though every effort is made to describe the wines in this catalogue and to describe or measure the levels of older vintages, buyers of old wines must make appropriate allowances for natural variations of ullages, conditions of corks and wine. Corks over 20 years old begin to lose their elasticity and levels can change between cataloging and sale. Old corks have also been known to fail during or after shipment. We therefore repeat that there is always a risk of cork failure with old wines and due allowance must be made for this. Under no circumstances can a return be accepted or an adjustment of price or credit be made after delivery except under the terms stated in paragraph 5, above, of the Conditions of Sale. Unless otherwise stated, Bordeaux are chteau bottled. Important note regarding opening of cases and listing of levels: Christies and NYWines general policy is to open all wood cases and to describe levels. Bidders must make allowances for reasonable variations in ullage which may be encountered in cases older than twenty years.

If we resell the property under paragraph (iv) above, the defaulting buyer shall be liable for payment of any deficiency between the total amount originally due to us and the price obtained upon resale as well as for all costs, expenses, damages, legal fees and commissions and premiums

The auctioneer may vary the increments during the course of


the auction at his or her own discretion. AUCTION RESULTS: +1 212 703 8080 Please also refer to the information contained in Buying at Christies. I request Christies to bid on the following lots up to the maximum price I have indicated for each lot. I understand that if my bid is successful, the purchase price will be the sum of my final bid plus a buyers premium of 21% of the final bid price of each lot and any applicable state or local sales or use tax. I understand that Christies provides the service of executing absentee bids for the convenience of clients and that Christies is not responsible for failing to execute bids or for errors relating to execution of bids. On my behalf, Christies will try to purchase these lots for the lowest possible price, taking into account the reserve and other bids. Absentee bids submitted on no reserve lots will, in the absence of a higher bid, be executed at approximately 50% of the low pre-sale estimate or at the amount of the bid if it is less than 50% of the low pre-sale estimate. If identical absentee bids are received for the same lot, the written bid received first by Christies will take precedence. Telephone bids will be accepted for lots with low-end estimates of $1,500 and above, no later than 24 hours prior to the sale and only if the capacity of our pool of staff phone bidders allows. Arrangements to bid in languages other than English must be made well in advance of the sale date. Telephone bids may be recorded. By bidding on the telephone, prospective purchasers consent to the recording of their conversations. Christies offers all absentee and telephone bidding services as a convenience to our clients, but will not be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids. All bids are subject to the terms of the Conditions of Sale and Limited Warranty printed in each Christies catalogue.
