The cellar was part of the original house and it is believed that refrigeration was installed at the outset, witnessed by the presence of the original compressor now unused at the property. Christie's staff removed the wines from this cellar in at which time notes were made regarding the conditions of the cellar. The cellar temperature was recorded at between 53 and 55 degrees during the cataloguing and whilst humidity could not be accurately determined, local climate would suggest relatively high humidity.
Many of the bottles have slip labels from the "Island Wine Company, Territory of Hawaii" and appear to have been shipped directly there. Wines that were removed from Miss Duke's Hawaii home, Shangri La have been indicated in the catalogue. The conditions of the bottles in this collection have been carefully detailed for each lot and in many cases are exceptional for age.
The colour of all wines is extremely healthy and the levels are in all instances usual for age in most cases excellent. As a seal of provenance each bottle will bear a back label stating that it was consigned from the Private Collection of Doris Duke and sold at NYWinesChristie's.
The exceptional wines in this collection are matched only by their impeccable provenance. The Extraordinary Cellar of Doris Duke will go down in the annals of Christie's as one of the great 'pristine' cellars. By 'pristine', I mean a cellar or collection of wines which have never moved since originally purchased and laid down, remaining correctly binned , in ideal temperature and humidity conditions, untouched until removal to Christie's for sale.
Since the inauguration of the new wine department in , Christie's have had the privilege of handling some - most - of the great private cellars, almost invariably being sold by the elderly grandsons of the gentleman who had originally purchased the wine.
One of the most renowned was that of Glamis Castle, wines purchased by the 13th Earl of Strathmore and binned in the mid s. The contents of the cellar were sold by the present Queen's cousin in The list goes on: The earliest and probably the finest of all, the unprecedented range of pre-phylloxera Lafite from the cellars of the Earl of Roseberry sold at Christie's first "Finest and Rarest" sale in May Doris Duke's cellar is in the same league.
A chance to taste history A remarkable pre-sale tasting of selected wines from Doris Duke's cellar was held at Christie's in London on February 14th. Senior Christie's staff were assembled to judge the quality and condition of the wines sent over well in advance to give plenty of time to settle. All of us were impressed by the good levels for their age and overall condition. Anthony's and my brief tasting notes made on the spot follow. The Epernay house provided specially commissioned, heavy bottomed bottles with a shield-shaped label which bore the inscription "Champagne especially shipped for Simon Bros.
In response to requests, cases were shipped to New York in November , this time using the finer and more mature vintage. Of the cases shipped to New York, Doris Duke is believed to have secured approx bottles according to cellar records, seventeen of the remaining are presented here. How would this great Champagne have evolved after nearly 70 years on the second cork after disgorging?
After a while, string emerged along with the twisted metal cage, as at this period the corks were tied down by skilled craftsmen using string. Wire cutters were called for to break free the wire cage and then with excitement I lifted the bottle to my ear as I prised the cork from its bottle. A low hiss of Carbon Dioxide slowly escaped the bottle - what great news - the seal was still good.
The first pour went to M. Geoffroy has kindly allowed us to print his own impressions below, it was a first for him and for all present, a very memorable moment. Geoffroy as a momento of a very special trip to London. The tiny crop due to a severe spring frost , after exposure to a long, hot summer, made one of the greatest vintages ever. Exceptionally pale for its age, the wine showcases an intriguing bouquet of toasted sndalwood, vanilla, honey, praline and marzipan.
One the palate, one is struck by the life, the energy and the backbone. It remains focused, with a lacy texture.
A key feature is the tremendous persistence of dry nutty flavors.
