The Great Antique Yquem Collection
We already know the Chateau d'Yquem can be pricey, after all, a single bottle of the 1787 went for $90,000 earlier this year but what about owning every vintage of Chateau d'Yquem since 1860? Decanter reports on The Great Antique Yquem Collection, a collection of Sauternes first growth stretching from 1860 to 2002. This comprehensive collection will be offered for sale by the Antique Wine Company. The wines will be displayed in a pair of cabinets custom-built by furniture designer David Linley. How much will it go for? It's hard to know but it should fetch at least a million or two. The vintages are all said to be in great shape with many of the older bottles having been re-corked at Yquem. The collection will also include tasting notes for all the wines. The Antique Wine Company has a mailing list for the sale so you can be the first to know when it takes places.
