What Price 2011 Château d’Yquem? STOP PRESS
It turns out the price fetched in my previous post for the case of 2011 Château d’Yquem included a personal tour of the property and lunch for four people so there isn’t a direct comparison to be made with other vintages. There were 2 similar lots offered last week. Firstly, in the UK at the Christie’s auction on Thursday 21st February someone secured a case at £8,050. Even more astonishingly another lot in the US at the Sotheby’s auction on Saturday 23rd February fetched £16,175.
Maybe we should be offering an al fresco picnic overlooking the vineyards of Yquem when the wine is eventually available? Any takers?
We will, of course, let you know when the wine is on general release which should be soon. It was certainly sensational when tasted en primeur! Bill Blatch
