A trio of lifelong friends is auctioning their wine and champagne collection that could net as much as $10 million.
“The Trinity Collection” will be auctioned online through Acker Wines on June 9 and 10. It will include some of the most expensive and rare bottles of vintage champagne to ever go under the hammer.
“This is a breathtaking selection of bottles,” Acker chairman John Kapon said in a statement. “I have personally witnessed the care and passion that went into building the three cellars that comprise the Trinity Collection, and it fills me with tremendous pride to present this extraordinary catalog to the public.”
The Trinity Collection is the sale of over 900 lots from three collectors and friends. This auction is about two-thirds Burgundy, but the mature, vintage Champagne is the star of the collection.
“This is arguably the most important collection of mature Champagne ever to come to market, and it is without question the most significant collection to come to market in well over a decade,” read the Auction notes.
“You simply do not see these for offer; they are amongst the rarest of the rare.”
Some of the standouts include a 1911 Moet & Chandon, a 1921 Pol Roger, 1943 Krug, various Louis Roederer bottles, and a Salon dating back to 1928.
Acclaimed writer Richard Juhlin, who provided an introduction to the Champagne selection in the Trinity Collection, said that “Salon is arguably the most sought-after Champagne among connoisseurs.
“This magnificent wine is so rare that only a few have had the chance to taste the quintessence of Le Mesnil across many multiple vintages.”
Selecting the bottles of old Champagne involved multiple inspections, inspectors, and enhanced authentication practices.
It’s estimated that the collection could fetch as much as $10 million in the coming days. You can register your interest online now.
