Some of my favorites offered in this auction are these 3 lots:
Lot 34: The 2007 Sloan Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa. Parker said “This spectacular 2007 should drink well for 25-30+ years.” (RP 100) (ST 96) 1 bottle ($500-700)
Lot 66: Chateau Pontet Canet 2009 (Pauillac) I always loved this wine and this is one of their best vintages! (RP 100) (WE 99) (WS 96) (ST 96) 12 bottles ($2,000-$3,000)
Lot 207: Chateau Margaux 2000 The 2000 Margaux is composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. Parker said, “There is no reason to hesitate to drink it. However, it should evolve for another 30-40 years, so there is no hurry either.” (RP 100) (WS 100) (ST 98) 2 bottles ($1,200-1,800)
To arrange for a preview, please contact Marie Keep, Director of Skinner’s Fine Wines Department, at 508-970-3296 or check out the Skinner Wine website for a listing of all the offering on the catalog.
