Over the Barrel

    Wine direct from the cellars of two prestigious winemakers will be featured in the Aulden Cellars-Sotheby’s sale of fine and rare wines on May 17 at Sotheby’s New York. The Peter Michael Winery of Sonoma, California, and Chateau Angelus of Saint Emilion, France, will showcase rare vintages from their vineyards, both of which are known for producing limited quantities of wine made using traditional French-style barreling. Peter Michaels Winery, which will donate auction proceeds to the Sir Peter and Lady Michael Foundation to fight cancer, will offer 30 bottles of Les Pavots Cabernet Sauvignon Vertical 2001-2005, each expected to fetch about $16,250. The auction house estimates the Peter Michael offering, which also includes Mon Plaisir, Belle Cote, and Les Pavots, will bring in more than $120,000. Chateau Angelus will offer wines from 1989 through 2005, including a 1989 Angelus estimated at $4,500. The total Chateau Angelus collection is expected to go for more than $117,000.
