Sotheby’s to Offer Absolutely Stunning Imperials from a Classic Bordeaux Collection


LONDON.- A stunning selection of Imperials will spearhead Sotheby’s London sale of A Classic Bordeaux Collection, Featuring Three Glorious Decades on Wednesday, 6 July, 2011. This exceptional offering of top Bordeaux from a Continental cellar features a treasure trove of all the First Growths, plus Château Cheval Blanc and Château Pétrus, in a wide range of formats, bought en primeur. These predominantly young vintages can be purchased for drinking now or storing for the future, with the large bottle format providing a slower maturation process. The Imperial size is equivalent to eight bottles, ideal for dinner parties of 15 to 20 people. They also make glorious gifts for children, to be laid down until 18th or 21st birthday celebrations. The collection comprises 441 lots and is estimated to realise in excess of £1 million*. Serena Sutcliffe MW, Worldwide Head of Wine at
