Come March 20, and the wine enthusiasts have a reason to smile as the Sotheby’s New York sale of the collection of Lloyd Flatt is set to sell for more than $600,000. This special collection will present the compilation of rarest of the rare Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne as well. The event will be conducted as a way of paying respect to Flatt who passed away in 2008. He held the belief that wine was supposed to be drunk and not collected.
He was very popular amongst the wine enthusiasts as he often hosted some of the most exciting tastings ever held in America. Flatt’s tastings were highly regarded as he often would open the best bottles in his New Orleans cellar. The collection will include a 1959 Chateau Lafite Rothschild Bordeaux, which is expected to be sold for anywhere between $20,000 and $30,000.
There are also 12 bottles if Chateau Haut-Brion Blanc Bordeaux, estimated to be sold between $10,000 and $15,000. A 1990 Louis Roederer Cristal Millenium Mathusalem is estimated between $10,000 and $15,000 as well. They are definitely expensive but worth buying any day that is if you have the enough dough to splurge on. I wish I could literally drink them all up.
