As Strauss & Co’s Fine Wine Auctions partner, we look forward to the North/South Live Virtual Auction this Sunday at 11 am. This private, single-owner collection offers maturing vintages from the finest and rarest domaines in Burgundy and the Rhône Valley.
Over the last decade, the wines of Burgundy have grown in status to become the most sought-after wines in the world. Strauss & Co offers 19 producers, including Domaine Armand Rousseau, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüe and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti – the apex of the wine hierarchy.
The Rhône valley has a shorter history than Burgundy but its wines are starting to command similar demand. The wines from two legendary producers are on sale who, over the last half century, have become synonymous with the Northern Rhône. Both Domaine Jamet and Auguste Clape are classically styled, historic producers who are considered two of the greatest Syrah producers.
Naturally, these wines are released young but often require a decade or more to show their best. Due to the small production and wide demand, finding mature bottles can be extremely difficult, however. Please see the Strauss & Co website for more information and happy bidding.
