Systembolaget LogoWine and spirits auctions

Late summer’s exciting meet with autumn.

After an unusual summer, we are back with an auction filled with both new and previous vintages, as well as a variety of flavours, ranging from lively champagnes to complex autumn wines.

A look at our champagne section presents Rosé champagnes such as a 1990 magnum Dom Pérignon and 75cl bottles from 1996, 1998 and 2000. In addition to this, there is an wide selection of 2008s for table and cellar.

From the classic Bordeaux region, we can present a total of 29 vintages of Château Haut-Brion from Pessac-Léognan in Graves. This wine has a particularly spicy, exotic and deep aroma. A bottle of 1945 Château Mouton Rothschild also stands out from the crowd, a particularly sought after vintage.

For the autumn’s game- and mushroom season we can offer several wines, such as a magnum 1982 La Tâche, and, rich 1990s Cabernet Sauvignon from California as well as truffle-friendly, mature Barolo and Barbaresco wines.

Among the spirits we have cognacs such as l’Art de Martell and l’Essence de Courvoisier, as well as a wide malt-spectrum of Macallan 18 yrs from a number of different distillation years. Additionally, Islay Whisky such as a Lagavulin 1985 21 yrs and Ardbeg 1975 & 21 yrs, along with Laphroaig 1977 & 30 yrs. Last but not least, the legendary Japanese collector’s whisky and very rare Ichiro’s Malt Card Queen of Clubs.

Welcome to our wine and spirits auction D029 September 2020, start 21st of August and held between 31st August – 2nd September.
