Sotheby’s To Host An Ex-Cellar Sale Featuring Wines From La Mission Haut-Brion

June 23, 2016

Sotheby’s will host an ex-cellar sale featuring wines from La Mission Haut-Brion in New York this October. The sale will cover 270 lots, with wines spanning 1916 to 2012 and including some of the estate’s rare white wine which is produced in tiny quantities.

Prince Robert of Luxembourg, president and CEO of La Mission, explained that the estate had always had a strong following in the US hence the reason to hold the sale there and not in Hong Kong as many other high-profile Bordeaux estates have,

He said: “La Mission is an equal and complimentary sibling for Haut-Brion, offering a true case study for the value and character that is imbued in an exceptional terroir. Crafted by the same wine-making team as its direct neighbour its unique character nonetheless always shines through.

“We are excited to share some very rare treasures from our cellars with wine-lovers from all around the world and we salute the great professionalism of Sotheby’s for offering us the ideal platform to accomplish this.”
