1978 Taittinger Collection "Vasarely" Brut Champagne
Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1978 Taittinger Collection "Vasarely" Brut Champagne in original presentation boxes. This is the debut vintage of Taittinger's Collection series, originally released in 1983. The goal of this collection is to unite Champagne and art by commissioning artists to design special edition bottles. This stunning bottle's design comes from optical artist Victor Vaserely, as the wine's name indicates. Making this cuvée all the more rare, the 1978 harvest was one of the smallest in the history of Champagne since the pre-war period (78 million bottles). This highly-collectible Champagne was produced from 40% Chardonnay grapes from the best vineyards in the Côte de Blancs and 60% Pinot Noir harvested from the best vineyards on the Montagne de Reims.

1990 Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle Alexandra Brut Rose
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle Alexandra Brut Rose (94RP, 94WE, 94WS, 92W&S). Wine Spectator: "Beautifully done. Vigorous and almost chewy, this intense, full-bodied rosé exudes mint, berry and wood aromas and flavors. Muscular and dense, with a character that engages the palate and needs contemplation or food." (11/2003)

1990 Moët & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne
Bid on this bottle of 1990 Moët & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (98RP, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium lemon-straw colour. Intensely fragrant nose with aromas of jasmine, cinnamon buttered toast, stewed apples and preserved ginger. Concentrated honey-nut, warm apple tart and spice flavours fill the mouth giving ample flesh to the firm, fine structure. The bubbles are still remarkably frisky and, in harmony with the crisp backbone of acid, make for a relatively youthful, elegant and exquisitely balanced wine. Very long finish. (LPB)" (03/2009)

1996 Krug Brut Champagne
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Krug Brut Champagne (100W&S, 99ST, 99WS, 98AG, 98RP). Wine & Spirits: "It's hard to imagine how a wine of this power can sustain perfect balance. What is now a more nonchalant intensity in the aroma was, in fact, too much to handle when we tasted this last year, as if the wine had no time for mere humans with their limited sense receptors. If you stop to taste ripe pear, ginger spice, apple blossom and butterscotch the wine leaves you lost in random flavor descriptors as it soars off into a vinous glow that lasts for minutes. This may well be the greatest vintage wine of Henri Krug's career (unless it is challenged by the 2002). It is impossible to predict how long this wine will thrive in bottle, though considering the current fine condition of the 1959 Krug, the first 50 years are a given." (12/2008)

1989 Krug "Collection" Brut Champagne (OWC)
Bid on this bottle of 1989 Krug "Collection" Brut Champagne (OWC - 96AG, 96RP, 96WS, 95WE, 93W&S) in original wood. Wine Spectator: "Shows a lovely interplay between the creamy bead and rich notes of almond financier, apricot preserves, treacle and cardamom, with finely cut, persistent acidity and flavors of pastis, raspberry puree, fennel seed and fleur de sel. Offers a refined, lasting finish, with a push of saline-tinged minerality. Drink now through 2029. (Insider)" (11/2013)

1990 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne (96ST, 95RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Rich, multidimensional, highly aromatic nose of pear, red berries, apple, honey, toast and spice. Extremely rich and concentrated, with its medium to full body leavened by bright citrus notes and compelling minerality. Great inner-mouth aromas. Conveys an impression of powerful yet remarkably fine raw materials. The spicy finish offers exceptional persistence and richness." (11/1999)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1996 Krug "Clos d'Ambonnay" Brut Champagne (OWC - 97RP, 95AG, 92WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Clos d’Ambonnay is very similar to the Clos du Mesnil in this vintage. It has the same piercing purity and minerality with the heft of the Pinot still to fully emerge. Hints of menthol, spices and berries wrap around the eternal finish. Clos d’Ambonnay, from a single, walled-in parcel in the village of Ambonnay, is in many ways the red equivalent of Clos du Mesnil. (97+) " (06/2011)

2000 Dom Pérignon "Wedding Edition" Brut Champagne
Bid on this bottle of 2000 Dom Pérignon "Wedding Edition" Brut Champagne (94RP, 94W&S, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Dom Perignon is a gorgeous, seductive wine that floats on the palate with remarkable grace. Toasty aromas meld into freshly cut flowers, apricots and pears, with sweet notes of mint and licorice that linger on the long finish. This perfumed, inviting Dom Perignon is elegance personified, and in this vintage the wine fully merits its lofty reputation. (AG)" (03/2009)

NV Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle La Cuvee
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle La Cuvee. 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium straw color, with a vigorous mousse. Wonderfully expressive aromas of white flowers, peach, fresh pear, sweet butter and exotic magnolia blossom. Concentrated and deep, with fresh ripe apple, redcurrant and fruitcake flavors accented by a strong chalky note. This manages to be dense and lively at the same time, with a remarkable range of flavors. Powerful and almost painfully concentrated on the very long finish. This cuvee, which is in a new, black bottle with a small black label, is based on 1996 juice, with the addition of wines from 1995 and 1993, and may be the finest Grand Siecle cuvee I've yet encountered." (Nov/Dec 05) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A mineral streak runs through this racy brut. Coffee, lime and hazelnut fill out the flavor profile, while the vibrant structure keeps it focused. It ends crisply, with a honey and mineral aftertaste. Drink

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (96RP, 95ST, 95WE, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Comtes de Champagne is awesome, but it, too, is all about potential, and there is no shortage of it here. Austere and very youthful, the 1996 is dominated by bright, piercing acidity and formidable structure. Readers who can wait will be rewarded with a magical bottle of Champagne, but today patience is the word. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036. (AG)" (09/2010)

2002 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne (100W&S, 99JS, 98WE, 96CG, 96RP, 92WS, 91ST). Wine & Spirits: "If a wine could ever make you want to pull the top down on your '68 Ferrari convertible, rip off the rearview mirror and take off, this is it. It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal Rosé, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earth bound. All the scents and flavors seem to emanate from limestone, as does the acidity, which hits at the front of the mouth and powers through the wine with the kind of solar energy that lifts mist off the white chalk on a cool morning in Cramant. The wine goes on for miles. It's already irresistable, and will only improve with ten, 20, 30 and 40 years of age." (12/2009)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Moët & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon" Brut Rosé Champagne (95ST, 95W&S, 94RP, 94WE, 92WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale orange-bronze color. Pinot-like aromas of blood orange, game, smoke and earth, along with hints of orange marmalade and peach; the nose of this wine always reminds me of Nuits-Saint-Georges or Vosne-Romanee. Very intensely flavored, ripe and tactile, but without an ounce of excess weight. Compelling flavors of wild red fruits, spices and earth; very Cote de Nuits. Wonderful framing acidity. Finishes with superb spicy persistence." (11/2001)
