Dear Clients & Friends:

It is early January as I write this letter for our February 1st New York City auction, which allows me to say (just one more time) with great pride and gratitude what an incredible 2018 it was! It was Acker’s biggest year ever with $125M in revenue, over 2150 New World Records, we passed the US$1 Billion lifetime mark as an auction firm and led the global wine auction market once again at the end of 2018. Thank you!!!
Onward to 2019, as we open our season in NYC with a killer auction and serious week-long celebration, as great as we have ever delivered. Mark your calendars now for “The Grande Fete de Bourgogne” – a singular, spectacular celebration of all things Burgundy, starting with dinners and tastings on Monday, January 28th, continuing throughout the week until the culmination of the Grande Fete auction, starting at 2pm on Friday, February 1st at Vaucluse. (For a full list of events, Click Here.)

Lots 770-771: 1 magnum each 2015 & 2016 Comte Liger-Belair La Romanée in OWCs
Acker’s “Grande Fete” is an auction led by Domaine-Direct Consignments from the cellars of seven of Burgundy’s finest winemakers, in Lots 721-771. The lineup of winemakers sending lots to us from Burgundy is seriously superb: Clos de la Chapelle, de Montille, Duroche, Fourrier, Henri Gouges, Meo Camuzet and Comte Liger-Belair. These are superbly special bottles. You would have to walk out of their cellars with bottles in each hand for these to be any more direct, or any more perfect!
The Featured Collections within this auction are structured similarly to a great Broadway play. This sale has multiple acts, none of which you want to miss, and all of which build on what’s to come next. After a scintillating prelude of over 200 lots, Act I is a series of four collections, all of which come to us from very experienced international collectors in Lots 229-451.
The first of these two, Lots 229-321, is a wonderful collection from a European client who is as savvy a collector as they come; the cellar full of all of my personal favorite “food” groups: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, Champagne and the top Italian reds. (We had to let a few, non-Burgundy goodies in, ya know?) But Leroy is the highlight! The second Featured Collection, Lots 322-369, comes to us from one of the most experienced and respected members of the global wine trade, someone who is a zealot about making sure his wines have been shipped and stored perfectly at each and every stage. His consignment is 100% First Growths, Super Seconds, DRC, Rousseau, and other top Burgundy winemakers and vineyards. You will love both of these collections, which really start to put the “Go” in our Grande Fete!

Lots 337-339: The 1996, 1998 & 1999 DRC Assortments in OWCs
Immediately afterward we have Lots 378-392, with rare Bizot headlining in tandem with Dujac, Engel, Colin-Morey, Dauvissat and the elusive Clos Rougeard. The storage has been perfect on these bottles. Over thirty DRC, Leroy and Rousseau lots speak to the clear quality of the collection inside the last of these Four Fabulous Featured Collections, which also highlights one of Bordeaux’s own crown jewels, Le Pin. Lots 393-451 are the perfect prelude to Act II of this auction, which has only one, sole collection that is very, very special.
Lots 463-466: 2 magnums each 1990 DRC Échézeaux, Grands Échézeaux, La Tâche & Richebourg
Lots 463-464: 2 magnums each 1990 DRC Échézeaux, Grands Échézeaux, La Tâche & Richebourg

Lot 504: 4 bottles 1992 Coche-Dury Meursault Perrieres
Lot 504: 4 bottles 1992 Coche-Dury Meursault Perrieres
You may be asking yourself – “just how special?” Well, Lots 452-581 hold among its many rare lots a full twelve-bottle case of 1990 Coche-Dury Corton Charlemagne! This remarkable lot is just one of nearly twenty famed Coche-Dury lots, 1990 Coche-Dury Meursault Perrieres inclusive, in addition to Raveneau back to 1989 and 1990, Chave back to 1990 and Verset and Clape back to those two brilliant tandem vintages, 1989 and 1990. I know this collection very well; it is one of the largest of this entire auction, and wherever you go, you simply cannot go wrong. Oh, and most of the bottles are pristine, with all the wines purchased upon release. Spend serious time inside these pages!
Lots 801 & 803: 6 magnums each 1985 Dujac Bonnes Mares & Clos St. Denis in OCBs
Lots 801 & 803: 6 magnums each 1985 Dujac Bonnes Mares & Clos St. Denis in OCBs

Lots 822 & 823: 2 bottles each 1962 & 1978 H. Bonneau Châteauneuf
du Pape Reserve des Celestins
The fireworks continue with Lots 795-829, kicking off with an “understated” six magnums each of 1985 Dujac Bonnes Mares, 1985 Dujac Clos St. Denis and 1979 Dujac Clos St. Denis all in original cases. That simple sentence is worth reading again, (and probably one more time after that as well); starting this French Connection European collection featuring the great Coche-Dury and Raveneau with legendary 1980 DRCs. Each lot was removed from ideal storage from a long-time client and consignor.
Lot 857: 6 bottles 1996 D’Auvenay (Leroy) Bonnes Mares

Clos de la Roche
We hit a high note with the most Featured Collection of the auction, Lots 830-1068. The man behind Lots 830-1068 is a true Burgundy connoisseur, the type of collector on my short list from whose cellar I would choose any bottle from blindfolded and be thrilled with my choice. Almost every great producer of Burgundy today is represented here. 1978 and 1990 Rousseau sound the alarm for the seriousness of this cellar right away, as do the two dozen Leroy d’Auvenay lots, and the DRC, Meo Camuzet, Truchot, Dujac, Roumier, Leflaive and Coche-Dury that have aged, and will still for many years, beautifully. Don’t miss his Giacosa and Giacomo Conterno lots, nor ignore the Clos du Mesnil. This collection from a true connoisseur is brimming with gems upon gems upon gems.
Lot 1089: 6 bottles 1978 E. Guigal Côte Rôtie La Landonne

Lot 1102: 12 bottles E. Guigal 1985 Côte Rôtie La Mouline
Lot 1102: 12 bottles E. Guigal 1985 Côte Rôtie La Mouline
The last of our Featured Collections is inside Lots 1069-1146 and it could go toe to toe with any I’ve mentioned in this letter. The mature Guigal La Las are off the charts great and you are unlikely to see their quantity and breadth again this year. Famous vintages of Giacosa and Giacomo Conterno compete successfully for attention in this great, great collection. And yes, there is a bit of Burgundy (and old Bordeaux) to warm things up. These are some of the rarest bottles in the entire catalog thanks to this European gentleman who has been at it for decades. It is the ideal final act of the sale, and the perfect way to close out the kickoff of the 2019 Acker New York City auction season!
