On March 22nd and 23rd, Acker returns to Hong Kong with over 1000 lots packed with exciting wines! January set the bar high for the Year of the Snake with strong demand across the entire market. There are several featured collections in March, all containing benchmarks from around the world of fine wine. We will send details of these special collections very soon. But first, as is our tradition, our Top Ten Lots for March HK will get the juices following with extraordinary wines to cap any collection:
10. 1982 Lafite. A Lafite that collectors know to be among the all-time wonders from this beautiful estate, a perfect twelve-bottle OWC case of 1982 Lafite (Lot 6, US$30,000-$40,000, HK$240,000-320,000)
9. 1999 Romanee-Conti. Two lots of Romanee-Conti are always better than one! (Lot 365 in OWC US$32000-48000, HK$260000-380000 and Lot 713 US$32000-48000, HK$260000-380000)
8. 1999 DRC Assortment. Perhaps 12 assorted bottles in OWC from THE Domaine will suit your regular drinking needs more, or perhaps you realize the Assortments are great investments (Lot 688 US$35,000-$50,000, HK$280,000-400,000)
7. Marcassin Superlot. If there is Burgundy in California, it would be Marcassin. Their Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays have won many blind tastings against top Burgundies, and we are proud and excited to offer an amazing and unprecedented 186 bottle Superlot of Marcassin (Lot 252, US$40000-60000 HK$320000-480000)
6. 2009 Petrus. When I tasted the 2009s en primeur, this was my wine of the vintage. Theory and practice are happily married here in this 2x6 bottle OWC (Lot 249, US$35,000-$50,000, HK$280,000-400,000)
5. 1990 Romanee-Conti. Will the 1990 Romanee-Conti become as famous as the legendary 1945? To answer that question, you must own it, and enough of it to last you another 30-40 years. Here’s three bottles more (Lot 709, US$40000-55000, HK$320000-440000)
4. 1990 Petrus. This is a rare, three-bottle OWC of the 1990 in double magnum, a true collector’s item (Lot 41, US$45,000-$60,000, HK$360,000-480,000)
3. 1982 Petrus. A benchmark wine from this benchmark Chateau in a beautiful twelve-bottle OWC (Lot 706, US$60000-80000 per lot HK$480000-640000)
2. 1988 Romanee-Conti. The vintage has aged slowly and in the case of this wine, magnificently, which will be good news to the new owner of this twelve-bottle OWC (Lot 707, US$100000-140000, HK$800000-1120000)
1. 2005 Romanee-Conti a rare six bottle OWC from an epic vintage (Lot 251, US$90,000-$120,000, HK$720,000-960,000)
