Selections from An Important Bordeaux Collection

While each lot in An Important Bordeaux Collection is remarkable in their own right, here are a few selections that should not be missed.

Chateau Latour 1966 (5 bottles)

For a vintage largely overlooked, “[T]he 1966 Latour remains an exemplar of the vintage, certainly one of the best, if not the best Left Bank wine of the vintage,” (N. Martin for TWA, 96 pts. 10/16). In fact, 1966 was rated four stars in Michael Broadbent’s Vintage Wine who wrote “[O]ne of my favourite vintages which I have always described as a lean, long distance runner,” with the Latour as “the slowest maturing of all the ‘66s” and “a flavoury, beautifully textured wine, with time in hand.” (10/00)

Lot 1019, Estimate: $1,800-3,000.… Read More

Wines to Open Now:

Wines to Open Now:

Wine certainly seems to be a key player during this strange time of quarantine. Never have so many people been talking about and drinking wine; parents deserve it after a long day of simultaneous homeschooling and work, friends are drinking it throughout Zoom hangs, and it seems like we all are pouring ourselves a glass when the clock strikes 5PM and we close our computers for the day. While we work through bean recipes and sourdough starters, now is the perfect time to dive into the wine reserves.… Read More

‘Starter Cellars’ to Start your Wine Collection

Building a wine collection from scratch can be a daunting undertaking, which is why Skinner is introducing ‘Starter Cellars,’ giving bidders the resources to build an impressive wine list from the ground up.

Starter cellars are designed to fit within your interests and your cellar and are curated to allow for exploration, education and growth. The collections vary in bottle size, regions and vintages, giving you the flexibility to decide what type of collection you would like to build and the advantage of having bottles already aged ready to open and others to lie down and appreciate in value and drinkability.… Read More
