    The Calvinson collection. Our meticulous collector (born in '59) has assembled an incredible cellar of world-class wines. Everything was purchased on release, or from the most discerning retailers around the world, and stored in a purpose built temperature and humidity controlled cellar and in professional storage. Bid with confidence.

    "The 1959 Latour has always been one of my favorite vintages. Deep in color surprisingly little ageing on the rim, it has an opulent, for this First Growth possibly “decadent” bouquet with layers of black fruit infused with cedar and mint, a touch of grey ash emerging with aeration. The palate is sweet and comely on the entry, the powerful mixture of red and black fruit underpinned by a superb line of acidity, sensual and inviting with veins of blood orange towards the extraordinarily persistent finish. Just a magnificent wine." (98 pts. Neal Martin, Vinous, Nov. 2019)
