What is your recent auction purchase?

#1 Post by Warren Taranow » July 10th, 2019, 11:11 am

It would be nice to see if a Berserker had snagged a wine I was courting, or simply what people are buying on the auction market.

My latest auction wins:

2001 Vilmart Cru Coeur de Cuvée; one bottle on WineBid
NV Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle; an older bottle from Spectrum

Cheers,

Warren

I usually post my auction wins in the Most Recent Purchase thread.

I was tracking that 2001 Vilmart and probably would have bid if the price had gone down again. Enjoy!

I was a low bidder on this.

On Winebid, I picked up 1993 Faiveley Les Saint George, I think $85 all in (w/ tax/commissions)

I definitely see a couple things on here that got snagged from under me at WineBid ;). I’m looking at you ‘90 Dauvissat Clos and ‘93 Faiveley Les St Georges. Enjoy them! [cheers.gif]

I got the '11 Kiser En Haut a few months for $20 hammer price on Winebid. Pretty nice bottle, love that vintage in CA.

Also picked up some El Molino Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for $25 and $35 respectively. Vacceli Granite Blanc and Rouge for $20 each. A few Zidarich for $10 and $15. Yes I"m mostly a bottom feeder.

Lately been laying off, have at it people!

Bought up 6 of the 2007 Copain Clos Pepe Pinots a little while back. Not sure why but a few months ago at least a dozen cases of older Copain landed on WineBid, maybe closer to two dozen. The CP is drinking really nicely right now, shame that vineyard can only be found in an $80 Walt Pinot starting with the ‘18 vintage...

Wow, that's CHEEP for the Zidarich. They mostly sell for around $40/bottle. Quite a steal for wines nobody likes, besides Tom Hill (and yours truly)!

1979 Heitz Martha's Vineyard Cab. No deal, but it's a birth year wine, so I paid up to win what turned into quite a competitive bidding process.

That's not bad at all, for the age and relative scarcity of older bottles of this.

Thanks for the shout-out Josh. Your sentiment of sharing even the good ones you didn't take home is a great one! Every bottle of wine I win from WineBid, I share with friends. And the ones I bid on and don't win, I figure I'm still sharing with friends in the community I haven't met yet.
