100 Years of Jaboulet | A Connoisseur’s Collection | Finest & Rarest Wines

At the conclusion of a momentous year for Sotheby’s Wine, our London team is delighted to present our final auction before Christmas with: 100 Years of Jaboulet | A Connoisseur’s Collection | Finest & Rarest Wines.

This outstanding sale begins with a very special consignment, direct from the cellars of Paul Jaboulet Aîné, in celebration of this year’s 100th anniversary of their flagship Hermitage La Chapelle cuvée. The incredible collection is comprised of bottles, magnums and extraordinarily rare larger formats that have never left the Domaine’s cellar, in truly pristine condition. It is made up only of the very best vintages for La Chapelle from the last 72 years, between 1949 and the present day, representing some of the most famous wines ever produced including the legendary 1961 and 1978.


Following this strong start, we are treated to a single-owner collection that represents the life’s work of a passionate British wine-lover and collector, with a particular taste for the very best wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, alongside a deep offering of blue-chip Champagne. In amongst this stunning collection, of special note is an outstanding pair of ex-Château Mouton-Rothschild 1945 bottles, authenticated and reconditioned by the estate in 2019, as well as a striking volume of 1989 Petrus that will become a jewel in the crown of any lucky buyer’s cellar.


Completing this very exciting auction we find selections from some of the UK and Europe’s most esteemed cellars, with perfect provenance and meticulous storage histories. These include one of the most complete verticals of Château d’Yquem to come to market for a very long timespanning more than two centuries and containing a significant offering of 19th century bottles, alongside rare large-formats of red Bordeaux from the 1940s. Further to this, we find an incredible range of mature DRC, wonderful cases of cult Burgundian Mugneret-Gibourgblue-chip Bordeaux including 1953 Latour and 1959 Lafite en magnumalongside the full roll call of the wine world’s greatest names from the rest of Europe and beyond.


100 Years of Jaboulet | A Connoisseur’s Collection | Finest & Rarest Wines will open for online bidding on Friday 3rd December, culminating in an online-streamed, live auction on Friday 17th December at 10am GMT.
