The Connoisseur’s Collection,
June 2-7

This auction will run from 10 AM EST on June 2nd until 9 PM EST on June 7th.

“If you follow our auctions closely, you’ll recognize this collection. From an avid collector and Burgundy lover in New York City, this is but a small offering from his expansive cellar. He is knowledgeable and generous, and indeed over the years, the Zachys team has been fortunate enough to taste many superlative bottles from his cellar. His wines are stored professionally in the NYC metro area, and he is meticulous in his sourcing. All of the wines in the auction came from his cellar. Why is he selling? Check out the subtitle on the auction banner. That should say it all.”

*The editor of Connoisseur Magazine presents a random selection of 10 extremely interesting Lots that caught our attention,…from this incredible zCollection to spark your interest in this amazing Auction online.

I can only express my regrets that I haven’t tasted more of these wines,.. One can only Dream!

Lot #131:

Krug 1985

3 bottles | 750ml

“…wonderful, elusive nose of smoke, cream, honey, nuts, peaches, and vanilla…Very long aftertaste of vanilla…92.” RJ 5/04.

Lot #140:

Dom Perignon 1982

2 bottles | 750ml

“Medium-light lemon gold color. Bright and still youthful aromas of Meyer lemon and lime. Moderate, fairly relaxed acidity. The apparently substantial dosage makes it seem a bit ‘soda-poppy’ with hints of sugar cane and stalk. Excellent.” FH 5/18.

Lot #147:

Salon Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil 1999

3 magnums | 1.5L

Lot #1:

Echezeaux Domaine de la Romanee Conti 2013

2 bottles | 750ml

“…fine depth and length on the balanced, focused and attractively vibrant finale that displays just a hint of youthful edginess…92.” BH 1/16.

Lot #2:

Grands Echezeaux Domaine de la Romanee Conti 1993

1 bottle | 750ml

“Very singed, fragrant, flowery nose; sweet, rich, flavourful…” MB 3/96.

Lot #3:

Grands Echezeaux Domaine de la Romanee Conti 2011

2 bottles | 750ml
“It gently builds, never losing its head mind you, towards a lightly spiced finish that fans out beautifully…93.” WA 2/14.

Lot #13:

Chambolle Musigny Les Gruenchers Dujac 2011

2 bottles | 750m

…there is good freshness and punch to the delicious, round and notably ripe flavors that ooze a very fine minerality on the delicious, robust and well-concentrated finish…” BH 1/13.

Lot #50:

Chambertin Clos de Beze Joseph Drouhin 2014

2 bottles | 750ml

Lot #114:

Chateau Latour 2002

“Subtle yet impressive. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Big and juicy. Deep mid-palate for the vintage. A solid, classic Latour…96.” WS 3/05.

Lot #120:

Cote Rotie La Landonne Guigal 2015

“Impenetrably dense and dark, the 2015 Cote Rotie La Landonne is loaded with black olive, espresso and cassis fruit. It’s full-bodied, rich and velvety in texture and nearly endless on the finish, yet it never seems overbearing or overripe, remaining vibrant and fun from start to finish…100.” WA 12/19.
