Having had the opportunity to travel with him, I have been able to personally experience firsthand his endless pursuit for knowledge and ability to taste wine with an astoundingly precise and discerning palate. The following offering represents just a small portion of his entire cellar, amassed over the past 20 years through his personal relationships with the producers. From Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Coche-Dury to Jamet and Egon-Muller, his collection boasts the best of the best, with something for everyone. A loyal advocate for local legends such as Boillot and Bouzereau, who he considers deserving of a place amongst the great names like Rousseau and Méo-Camuzet, reveals his unprejudiced appetite for exceptional wines. The close relationships and friendships he maintains with the winemakers and their families is a true testament to the great respect they hold for him. All of the wines in the following collection have remained in Europe since their purchase. Every bottle in the collection was purchased directly on release. All wines have been stored below ground in a temperature and humidity-controlled cellar in Europe and have not moved since their original purchase. It is a bittersweet moment for us to offer the final part of The Carefully Crafted Cellar from one of the worlds most distinguished minds in wine today.

IWC 3/ bottle per lot US$ Claude Dugat The Dugat family has been in Gevrey since the nineteenth century, however it wasn t until a young Claude Dugat took over in the early 1980s that this domaine began to garner any serious attention. Since then the wines have simply been getting better each year, since his breakthrough vintage of 1990 the wines have been spectacular. Now at age fifty-one he is one of Burgundy s most celebrated and sought after producers. There are just four hectare of vines at Domaine Dugat from village level to Grand Cru, like much of Burgundy there is not a lot to go around. Claude Dugat is without any doubt this Grand Cru vineyards finest exponent, a wizard with the Charmes fruit. No one comes close to producing what he manages from his forty-two ares of vines. Here we have old vines, with an average age of forty years. Production is tiny, just 160 cases. Claude Dugat always makes mention of the need to stress the vine and to that end there is extensive green-harvesting. This of course means yields are low, somewhere around the twenty-five hl/ha mark. Picking is not overly late, the focus here being on perfect ripeness of fruit. Some stems are left in, fermentation is in stainless steel and maturation for the domaine's two Grand Crus is in 100 percent new oak for sixteen to twenty months. There is neither fining or filtration prior to bottling.

In 1953 the Roumiers also purchased the monopole Premier Cru Morey St Denis Clos de la Bussierre. In 1968, Jean-Marie s wife, Odile Ponnelle, purchased a tract of unplanted Corton- Charlemagne, which was subsequently committed to vine and the first Roumier Corton-Charlemagne was released in the 1974 vintage. In 1978 the domaine finally purchased the small slice of Musigny that they had been sharecropping since the mid-1920s. Domaine Georges Roumier is one of my favorite domaines in all of the Côte d Or. In my personal cellar, by quite some margin, I have more Roumier wines than from any other producer. I find them to be extremely reliable for cellaring, and to deliver at their apogees all the majestic complexity for which Burgundy is rightly renowned. Out of the blocks they are not the typically delicate style of Chambolle, but rather wines that are full and wellstructured in their youth. For young Chambolles they are atypical, but within the fullness of time, they develop all the silk and perfume for which the wines of this village are so rightly cherished. From the superbly crafted Chambolle-Musigny village bottling that I buy in depth in every vintage to the lonely bottle of Roumier Musigny, these are among the greatest wines that I have in my cellar, and bottles that I look forward to growing old with comfortably.

All this has been said by those attempting to describe the taste of Le Musigny. Le Musigny consists of two sub-climats, Le Musigny itself and at the same altitude next door to the south, Les Petits-Musigny. The lion s share, more than seven hectares, almost seventy percent, and including the totality of Les Petites-Musigny, belongs to the Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé. This estate proclaims itself the Domaine des Musigny. The domaine also comprise 2.75 hectares of Bonnes-Mares, located entirely in the southern, Chambolle end of the climat, sixty ares of Amoureuses, 1.80 hectares of Premiers Crus (Baudes and Fuées) and a small parcel of village wine. Wines of the domaine are defined as classy and fragrant, very exciting indeed. The domaine is in good hands. The future is bright.

33 Jean-François Coche-Dury: Quintessential Meursaults and Much More Jean-François Coche s name is now murmured with the same respectful awe that is reserved for Henri Jayer. In many ways, he wears a mantle in the pantheon of white Burgundy winemakers that Monsieur Jayer wears amongst the red winemakers. From three-starred Michelin restaurants to the auction floors of New York and London, it is the white wines of Monsieur Coche that are the most ardently sought after. For those Burgundy lovers lucky and clever enough to secure bottles of Coche-Dury wines, the treasures that they are able to lock away in their cellars are a fine hedge against the vagaries of growing old. The white Burgundy crown that rests so easily on the head of Jean-François Coche is a rather remarkable achievement, when one pauses to consider his rather meager vineyard holdings versus the scores of white wine-producing domaines whose holdings are chock full of Grand Crus and illustrious Premier Crus. The two crown jewels amongst the white wines in the Coche cellar are the Meursault Perrières and the Corton- Charlemagne. The Corton-Charlemagne s first release was the 1986 vintage, and it is as fine a bottle of Corton Charlie as one can ever hope to find. It is very slow to unfold, and in any top vintage requires a minimum of ten years of bottle age to really blossom and begin to drink well. The Coche-Dury Meursault Perrières is the other twin titan in the cellar. Many Burgundy lovers, often over a glass of inspired Côte d Or rouge or blanc, like to banter about which vineyards are worthy of promotion in the appellation controlée system if the French were ever to open up the Pandora s Box or reclassification. Almost universally, the vineyard of Meursault Perrières is mentioned as clearly worthy of Grand Cru status. If one were to choose and example of why this is the case, one could do no better than a bottle of Coche-Dury Meursault Perrières. This is a complete wine that quite easily rivals the quality of the Corton-Charlemagne in the cellar. In some vintages the Corton looks to be the better of the two, sometimes the Meursault Perrières. But in virtually every vintage the Meursault Perrières is a long-lived wine of uncompromising brilliance, and well worth the price of admission. There are not many Bâtard-Montrachets or Chevalier-Montrachets that I would trade even up for a bottle of Coche-Dury Meursault Perrières.

35 RHÔNE Guigal Marcel Guigal - perfectionist, fanatical, pernickety is the super-star of the appellation and probably sells more Côte-Rôtie under his own label than all the other growers combined. Despite this size, however, the quality is exemplary - as they should be at the prices he charges! He harvests late, insists on very low yields, and keeps the wines in a combination of barrel and small foudres and demi-muids, all newish wood, for up to three and a half years before bottling. Their wines are so concentrated they can withstand this wait without drying out, and remain profound, rich and individual. La Landonne is the Brune, La Mouline the Blonde, La Turque the sort of hermaphroditic mixture. Usually my favourite is the Landonne. The Château d Ampuis bottling combines elements of both the sectors of Côte-Rôtie, from vines in the climats of La Pommiere, Le Pavillon, La Garde and Le Clos.

41 Pétrus Pétrus today is a little over eleven hectares, including five hectares purchased in 1969 from neighboring Château Gazin. The vineyards have clay topsoil and gravelly subsoil, allowing good initial water retention but excellent longer term drainage. The vines are old, around forty to fifty years, planted with ninety percent Merlot and five percent Cabernet Franc. To increase concentration the vines are pruned extensively and a green harvest is performed. At harvest time, nearly two hundred workers pick the grapes at their peak of balance and ripeness. Sometimes up to four passes are needed but if pressed, as in 1982, the entire harvest can be completed in just one day. The grapes are partially destemmed and after a fairly lengthy maceration period, sometimes almost a month, the wine spends twenty months in new oak before being fined (but not filtered) and bottled. Pétrus is a classic example of careful vineyard management and winemaking yet the result leaves evidence of something even greater. These methods combine with exquisite terroir for Merlot to create something that is, in good vintages, not only earthshatteringly tasty, but distinctive, lending the name Pétrus majesty because of its quality but also its inimitability. Pétrus 1966 Pomerol just below top shoulder, importer tag adhered to bin-soiled and damp-stained label, slightly depressed cork, signs of old seepage "Sweet, full-bodied, yet tannic.

45 BURGUNDY Bouchard Père Et Fils Bouchard Père et Fils was founded in 1731 and rapidly rose to prominence and remains to this day one of the greatest negociant/domaines in Burgundy. It is the largest owner of Premier and Grands Crus in the Côte d Or with an incredible eighty-six hectares in these two categories plus another forty-four hectares of villages and regional vineyards, for a grand total of 130 hectares. And while not technically part of Bouchard proper, in 1998 Joseph Henriot, who is the owner of Bouchard, also bought William Fevre in Chablis and they account for another fifty hectares of top vineyard land. As anyone knows who does even a modicum of casual wine reading these days, there is the notion being promulgated virtually everywhere that all great wines must come from vintages with very high levels of ripeness, whether it be sugars (read alcohol levels) or phenolics. And while this is true so far as it goes, it doesn t leave room to accept that great vintages, and great wines, don t necessarily have to follow in this ripeness is everything mantra Bouchard chooses not to pick on ripeness but rather acidity and has always done so. The wines, and their associated remarkable longevity, fly squarely in the face that the underlying phenolics must be ultra ripe for the wines to ever be any good, or just as importantly, age well. The emphasis on favoring acidity rather than high ripeness does not come without a cost and that cost is often upfront drinkability. It would be a distortion to suggest that phenolic ripeness is ignored it s not, but it s important to acknowledge that other viticultural philosophies than the current fad of emphasizing ripeness above all else can make exceptional wines as well, even though more patience is required to ultimately enjoy them. In that sense, Bouchard is not making modern wines as they do not fully destem and do not cold soak, which when combined with more acidity and often expressly structured wines frequently make the reds austere in their youth but time and again glorious with enough time in bottle. The whites, as these tastings amply demonstrate, age extremely well too but because they too favor ample acidity, also require plenty of time in bottle to be at their best.

55 Joseph Drouhin The well-known Beaune-based négociant house of Joseph Drouhin has been an important firm in the appellation of Burgundy since its opening in In that year, Joseph Drouhin purchased a pre-existing small négociant operation and re-named it Maison Joseph Drouhin. Joseph handed over the reins of the significantly expanded négociant house to his son, Maurice Drouhin in Maurice Drouhin, who was one of the great figures of his era in Burgundy, presided over the family domaine until slowed by a sudden stroke in He was succeeded by his son Robert Drouhin, who continues to run the estate to this day. While Maison Joseph Drouhin now has a large spread of outstanding vineyard parcels scatted up and down the Côte d Or and in Chablis, it is virtually impossible to tell a Drouhin wine made from purchased grapes and those produced from their own vineyards, as the house style of terroir-driven, classic and age worthy Burgundy is shared both by the négociant wines and the estate wines. The Drouhins make all of their own wines from the Côte d Or, with an eye towards producing medium-full wines of great complexity and intensity of flavor in the traditional Burgundian style. Both the reds and whites are considered amongst the very finest wines produced in the Côte d Or by all knowledgeable Burgundy commentators today.

59 Anne Gros Domaine Anne Gros is one of several Gros family estates in the village of Vosne-Romanée, with her grandfather having been the famous Louis Gros who passed away in From Domaine Louis Gros has come four distinct Gros domaines in Vosne-Romanée today, with Anne Gros being the daughter of one of Louis Gros sons, François. This estate started out as Domaine François Gros when her father first took over his three hectare portion of the family s vineyards and began to bottle his own wines back in 1970, after having worked for several years alongside his brothers and sister at the family domaine. In 1978, health problems forced François Gros to cut back on his workload and his wines were then sold off in barrel to négociants for a full decade, until his only daughter, Anne, was ready to take over direction of the estate. At this point in time, it became Domaine Anne et François Gros, and since 1995, all of the wines here have simply been labeled as Domaine Anne Gros, to try to reduce confusion with the wines produced by her cousin Anne-Francoise Gros. The estate has expanded a bit since the original three hectares of vines that François began with in 1970, and today the domaine owns 6.5 hectares of vines in the villages of Vosne-Romanée, Vougeot and Chambolle- Musigny. Domaine Anne Gros is interesting in that it has no Premier Cru vineyards, with its two village wines of Chambolle-Musigny la Combe d Orveau and Vosne- Romanée les Barreaux augmented by fully three Grand Crus- an extremely old vine Clos Vougeot (vines planted in 1905), a fine example of Echézeaux and an aristocratic Richebourg. The style of Anne Gros wines are quintessential Vosne Romanée, with a certain plummy opulence beautifully tied to the underlying soils of the respective vineyards and the wines treated to a generous dollop of toasty new oak up and down the range. While Madame Gros is most famous for her three rich and opulent grand crus, her village wines have consistently impressed as being of fine Premier Cru quality and offer up excellent value. Today, Domaine Anne Gros is one of the most famous and sought after estates in the fabled village of Vosne-Romanée.

BH 1/ magnum (1.5L) per lot US$ Georges Roumier The domaine was enlarged a number of times since its inception in 1924, with Georges acquiring a bit more Bonnes-Mares in 1952, as well as two parcels of Clos Vougeot in the same year. In 1953 the Roumiers also purchased the monopole Premier Cru Morey St Denis Clos de la Bussierre. In 1968, Jean-Marie s wife, Odile Ponnelle, purchased a tract of unplanted Corton- Charlemagne, which was subsequently committed to vine and the first Roumier Corton-Charlemagne was released in the 1974 vintage. In 1978 the domaine finally purchased the small slice of Musigny that they had been sharecropping since the mid-1920s. Domaine Georges Roumier is one of my favorite domaines in all of the Côte d Or. In my personal cellar, by quite some margin, I have more Roumier wines than from any other producer. I find them to be extremely reliable for cellaring, and to deliver at their apogees all the majestic complexity for which Burgundy is rightly renowned. Out of the blocks they are not the typically delicate style of Chambolle, but rather wines that are full and wellstructured in their youth. For young Chambolles they are atypical, but within the fullness of time, they develop all the silk and perfume for which the wines of this village are so rightly cherished. From the superbly crafted Chambolle-Musigny village bottling that I buy in depth in every vintage to the lonely bottle of Roumier Musigny, these are among the greatest wines that I have in my cellar, and bottles that I look forward to growing old with comfortably.

78 Domaine Ramonet Pierre Ramonet was more than a character. He was, to use the old cliché but it is true in this instance a legend in his own lifetime. More or less from scratch, by dint of sheer hard work and a genius for wine, he built up one of the finest white wine domaines in Burgundy. Today the name of Ramonet is synonymous with top Chardonnay. The allocations for bottles are fought over, for every collector considers it his or her right to own some. They sell at auction for astronomical sums whenever they appear. On the rare occasions, as in January 1995 at the Montrachet restaurant in New York, when someone puts on a special vertical tasting and dinner, the tickets and they are not cheap are over-subscribed ten times. Ramonet in white is the equivalent of Henri Jayer or the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in red. Pierre Ramonet died in 1994 at the age of eighty-eight. He is much missed. But his echo lives on, and the wines, in the able hands of his grandsons Noel (born in 1962) and Jean-Claude (born in 1967) since the 1984 vintage (mais sous ses ordres, stoutly avers Noel), continue his reputation. They are very fine. A Ramonet wine is a Ramonet wine before it is a Chassagne, or a Bienvenues, or a Bâtard or a Montrachet. Clive Coates, MW, Côte d Or" Lots ZACHYS tel fax zachys.com 253

It was a benchmark for me, and I ve sought out Syrah ever since. Charles Antin CHAMPAGNE Krug Of all the wine world s luxury brands, Krug is perhaps the most glittering. No expense is spared in its production, though the techniques used are in fact remarkably artisanal, including fermentation in small, old wooden casks. Time is of the essence: the overall ageing cycle is the best part of a decade here, with all wines being aged for at least six years sur pointes (upended, after the ordinary ageing period that follows the second fermentation is concluded). No expense is spared, either, in the pricing of its five wines, the cheapest of which, Grande Cuvee, costs as much as many rival houses top cuvees. This is a wine of magnificent complexity and layered richness, nourishing and diverting, as detailed and textured as a Gobelin tapestry. It contains wines from a decade s worth of vintages and from at least twenty different crus (not all of them Grand or even Premier, one might note); Krug makes no secret, too, of its need and love for Pinot Meunier. (The Krug 1928 vintage, regarded by the family as the greatest ever, contained twenty percent Meunier, and there is eighteen percent in the finely honed 1988.) There is also a relatively understated rose of pale tawny hue, and a series of vintage wines of magnificent stylistic oscillation, fully respecting the potential of each year. The Collection vintage wines have spent more years in the Krug cellars in Reims; disgorgement took place at the same time as for ordinary vintage wines. Finally, a champagne de terroir: the pure Chardonnay Clos du Mesnil, vinified from wines in a genuine 1.9 hectares walled vineyard within the village of Le Mesnil, purchased by Krug in 1971, and released as a vintage wine beginning with In great years (like 1988) it is magnificent and multi-dimensioned.
