Sale Overview

Christie’s Wine Department in America is pleased to announce Fine and Rare Wines Online: LA Edition.

The sale offers over 950 lots from the greatest winemaking regions around the globe. Over 300 lots come from the distinguished cellar of an East Coast gentleman, almost entirely purchased upon release, including impeccable selections of First Growth Bordeaux and Grand Cru Burgundy. Another 100 lots come from the cellar of Tom Wekell, a prodigious collector and part-time wine merchant from the Pacific Northwest. The sale also features rare Madeira consigned from the Island with vintages dating back to 1720.

From Bordeaux, highlights include spectacular vintages of all the First Growths including many in rare large formats with vintages dating back to the 1940s. Burgundy’s finest producers are all represented including Coche-Dury, DRC, Leroy, Rousseau, de Vogüé with rare assortment cases offered from Ponsot and Prieuré Roch.

For lovers of Italian wine, there are vintages of Barolo dating back to 1955 alongside the best of Tuscany including Ornellaia, Masseto, Sassicaia, Solaia, and Tignanello. The California wines on offer are an embarrassment of riches including an exceptionally rare 10-vintage vertical of Screaming Eagle with perfect provenance and some of the most famous California wines ever produced including 1971 Ridge Monte Bello and 1974 Heitz Martha’s.

Those who enjoy the sweet and sparkling can find rare vintage Champagne, Yquem from vintages as old as 1947, Tokaji Essencia from 1863, and an expansive selection of Port & Madeira spanning three centuries. Our valued clients need not look any further for hidden gems and rare collectibles.
