Dear Client & Friends:

Our finale to an exceptional auction season happens in New York City on Wednesday, December 12th at the wonderful Vaucluse; an auction whose splendor shines within these pages. Twenty eighteen has been an exceptional year for us in both revenue and the number of new world records we’ve set, a point of incredible humility and pride, but more on the industry benchmarks later . All of this has happened thanks to all of you - our clients around the world. Thank you for joining and supporting Acker Merrall through each incredible series of world-class collections, dinners and events in Hong Kong, New York City and the world over. The time we’ve spent together over these days and nights have been our privilege to enjoy; the very best of the best and we cannot wait to continue the traditions and trends together in 2019!

This NYC finale, and the Fabulous Five Featured Collections inside these pages, is the ideal way to finish the 2018 collecting year. Here’s a brief look at each; all five come to us from exceptional cellars and the experience that comes with decades of collecting and connoisseurship. The near fifty lots inside Lots 236-291 begin with a gorgeous magnum of 1945 La Mission, an emphatic start! It then proceeds to over a dozen DRC lots, Romanee Conti and DRC Montrachet inclusive, and a wonderful Barolo and Vega Sicilia Unico collection. Following immediately after is a collection from a longtime client and savvy collector, and it shows its quality and depth immediately via 2015 Rousseau Chambertin and 1985 DRC. The Giacosas inside this collection are all the mature vintages we’d love to drink plus recent benchmarks, too. Don’t miss Lots 292-330. There is no one whose palate and prowess exceeds that of the collector behind the next Featured Collection, Lots 331-374. Two Bordeaux powerhouse vintages prevail in 1964 Cheval Blanc and 1961 Lafleur – a truly superb way to begin this collection in Lots 331-374. Rousseau, DRC and Domaine Leroy follow before we adjust the Piemonte lens via Giacomo Conterno Montfortino Riserva with the 1978 in magnum and bottle. This, and all of these, are particularly stunning collections.

After that strong threesome, the largest collection of the sale follows in Lots 375-511. Perfectly stored First Growths and Super Seconds set the stage for a series of Rousseau Chambertin lots back to 1978, Liger-Belair, DRC, 1999 Henri Jayer plus jeroboams of Mugneret-Gibourg. The Rhones and Piedmonts are matched in range and depth with the great and famous reds and whites of California. This is an exceptional collection with great lots for every single cellar. Do not miss this one! The last of the Fab Five comes a bit later in Lots 789-966. The Chapoutiers that begin this collection are an enviable range of 100-point famous and delicious wines, one of the very best we have offered this year. Yet, it is the stellar range and depth of the great wines of California - Bond, Bryant Family, Marcassin and Peter Michael to name just four of the exhaustive list –that distinguishes this Featured Collection from the others. Spend some quality time inside this catalog poring over these lots as it is a wonderful compilation; a testament to the passion and skill of these longtime collectors.
