Simon Larkin (Master of Wine and Managing Director of Atlas Fine Wines Ltd.) was recently interviewed by Caroline Hyde, Romaine Bostick & Taylor Riggs on Bloomberg Markets: What'd You Miss?, where they discuss Atlas’ upcoming inaugural online auction: The Great Domaine Leroy Auction, as well as covering the wider topic of fine wine as an investment.
In explaining what makes this particular auction so remarkable, Simon highlights the rarity and sought-after nature of this particular Domaine. “It’s become one of the most expensive, one of the most sought-after domaines in France now, producing a range of Grand Cru, some of which trade at £40,000 for a bottle for the Grand Cru Musigny [which is] incredibly rare; only about 800 bottles produced each year…these are some of the rarest wines that anyone is ever likely to own.”
Simon goes on to comment on the extraordinary rarity of the condition of the wines for sale in the auction – original sealed cases, purchased for the client by Simon over the last 20 years, professionally stored, and with impeccable provenance with accompanying documents and original invoices – this is near impossible to find for wines of such rarity.
Should you have any questions about Simon’s comments in the interview, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
