This Live Auction

February has become one of our favorite months on the Acker calendar, as we traditionally welcome a few of our Burgundian friends to New York City to host some of the most exciting wine dinners of the year as the run up to our Grande Fête de Bourgogne. Though 2021 is a bit different, we are still bringing you our third annual Grande Fête de Bourgogne auction, virtually this time around, on February 4th and 5th at 6pm ET! Join us as we celebrate everyone’s favorite region with 11, electric Domaine-direct consignments alongside a bevy of other Burgundian-focused features. It is also a pleasure to return to Zoom with a few of our favorite vignerons prior to the auction, and we hope you’ll join us in the revelry! We must make mention of the raison d’être for this sale first, the eleven, exciting Domaine-direct consignments, in Lots 1196- 1291! This regal roster features wines young and old from Y. Clerget, Chateau de la Tour, Domaine de Montille, Henri Gouges, Faiveley, Joseph Drouhin, Duroche, Dugat-Py, Hubert Lignier, Meo Camuzet, and Comte Liger-Belair! All of these wines offer a unique opportunity to taste Burgundy direct from the cellars in which it was made, and it is a tremendous privilege to present this prestigious list of Burgundy’s best! Night one of this auction is anchored by none other than the Golden Phoenix in Lots 196-380. He has risen once more, after unparalleled performances in New York, Hong Kong, and again in New York, offering up a regal roster of young Burgundy this time around with Bordeaux and Rhone in case and parcel quantity, and a delightful smattering of Champagne, Italy, and Spain! All of the Golden Phoenix collection has come from professional storage, where most of these wines have been lying since being purchased on release— it is an honor and a pleasure to welcome back the collection of the Golden Phoenix, as significant a wine cellar as any you will find in the world today!! A duo of consignors brings us some mature wonders in Lots 652-796. We introduced wines from the Estate of Doctor James Tait Goodrich in our January Hong Kong sale, and it is a pleasure to welcome a second tranche of wines from this true humanitarian and innovative surgeon who passed away last year. This prestigious cellar provides well-aged Bordeaux like 1953 Cheval Blanc, 1961 Gruaud Larose, a case of 1983 Leoville Las Cases, and an Imperial of 1985 Mouton. 1985 was a great year for Burgundy and this rings true with Bachelet Charmes introducing several 1985 DRC Grand Crus and crowned by an outstanding, original cardboard case of 1985 Dujac Clos de la Roche — you don’t see a case like that too often! Dom Perignon back to 1961 refreshes us on our way to California where classic bottles of B.V. back to ’61, 1978 Diamond Creek, six lots of Heitz Martha’s back to 1967, and 1970s Ridge make us Cali crazy! The second collector of this pair continues the trend of mature marvels, as this diligent collector returns to these pages starting with a splendid selection of serious Bordeaux with the spotlight on 1959 Haut Brion, a full case of 1955 Lafite, 1928 Latour, and 1950, 1961, and 1964 Petrus. Burgundy regals us with legends of the Côte, including 1948 Rousseau Chambertin, 1971 DRC Echezeaux and La Tache, 1959 La Tache, 1949 DRC Richebourg, 1980 Romanee Conti, and 1978 Ramonet Batard. This is a cathedral of mature wine! What a delight to deliver these mature wonders from a worthy pair of profound collectors! This is, of course, the Grande Fête de Bourgogne so we’d be remiss not to call out other serious selections from this superlative region to be found elsewhere in the catalogue! There are luminous, large formats of Dujac including a signed Methuselah of 1997 Clos de la Roche and a Jeroboam of 1985 Clos St. Denis, with provenance that goes back to the Domaine! Dance the night away with DRC and find Jeroboams of 1996 La Tache, 1997 Romanee Conti, and 1995 Romanee St. Vivant, in addition to several vintages of DRC Montrachet. White Burgundy is necessary to keep the party going, so stock up on an eye-catching cadre of luxurious Domaine Leflaive Montrachet, with over thirty lots back to 1993 of one of Burgundy’s rarest bottlings. We must make mention of a few other notable names to look out for—Leroy, Jayer, Rouget, Rousseau, and Ramonet cannot be left out of this fantastic Fête!
