Two sets of very rare wines from Burgundy domaines Comte Liger-Belair and Emmanuel Rouget are being offered in an online auction by Atlas Fine Wines.
The London- and Switzerland-based fine wine brokers Atlas Fine Wines is following up its sell-out Domaine Leroy auction in 2021 with another remarkable selection of Burgundy wines in its second online auction this month.
The Two Great Domaines auction, which went live in October and continues until 4pm on November 10, 2022, features wines from two of the finest vineyards in Burgundy: La Romanée Grand Cru from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair (six bottles from each vintage, 2002 to 2017) and Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru, Cros Parantoux from Emmanuel Rouget (twelve bottles from each vintage, 2005 to 2019).
The wines, which were initially offered as complete verticals, are now being offered by the individual case, with 35 individual lots and opening bid case values from £8,000 to £53,000.
The pre-sale release states that, “Each collection is being sold by one Atlas client, and all the wines included were sourced by Atlas. A renowned specialist wine authentication company has assessed each of the bottles individually to give absolute confidence to any prospective buyer and consequently, all wines included in this auction have been authenticated.”
Atlas also said it offers help with “prompt worldwide shipping with quotations available on request.”
Interested buyers are invited to register online where they can view both lots on offer, including an “extensive range of high-resolution images.”
“Our auctions are now a regular feature and continue to offer the rarest collections in the wine world for auction via our website,” said Simon Larkin MW, managing director of Atlas Fine Wines.
“Our model of dispensing with unnecessary and hefty buyer’s premiums attracts key buyers from across the globe, providing benefits to both vendor and buyer alike. Last year’s Domaine Leroy auction attracted buyers from 15 different countries and grossed £1.6 million.”
