Sale of the Year?


#1

This caught my eye, the late producer of Blade Runner among other things, Jerry Perenchio is having his wine collection sold by Sotheby’s, no Yellow Tail here !

the list makes for sumptous reading

and of course one always wonders about how many of these stellar wines he actually drank .


#2

and how many of the bottles are from Rudi


#3

Heavens.

I wonder … does anyone actually drink these wines?! Maybe they’re all terrible but no one dares open a bottle to find out :rofl:


#4

This is why I buy wines EP for drinking rather than investment!


#5

I doubt he was buying as investment… as @cgoldin mentioned in another thread, there is the third category of collector


#6

I’ll be back later - just off to remortgage the house


#7

:joy: So many. They still probably taste alright though.


#8

Some of the Burgundy dates back to the 1940’s, it would be a mark of insanity to take a punt on them at that price!


#9

Not a trait wine collectors lack.


#10

In a mad world, is a madman mad, or sane?
