Sotheby’s Celebrates Burgundy Wines

Sotheby’s and Aulden Cellars have teamed up to offer an exceptional selection of Burgundy wines for the final sale of the spring season at Sotheby’s New York on June 13. Alongside fine wines from Raveneau, Dauvissat, and Fèvre in Chablis will be a selection of white Burgundies from the Mâcon appellation from winemaker Dominique Lafon, offered for the first time at a Sotheby’s sale. Lafon’s Mâcons are “for buyers looking for sophisticated summer drinking at a very reasonable price,” said Robert Sleigh, head of Sotheby’s New York wine department. The Mâcons are available in two- and three-case lots with estimates of around $200 per lot. Other highlights within the sale’s 1,217 lots include 12 bottles of Château Pétrus 1990, Bordeaux estimated between $16,000 and $25,000, and two cases Corton Charlemagne Leroy 1996, a white Burgundy estimated between $1,800 and $2,500 for both cases.
