Over 700 lots of fine art, antiques, estate jewelry, and fine wine will be offered at Leland Little Auction & Estate Sales Ltd's Spring Catalog Auction. Fine Wine will be sold Friday, March 18, at 6 p.m. Eastern Time. Decorative and fine arts from regional estates will be sold Saturday, March 19, commencing at 9 a.m.
Floor, absentee, telephone and live online bidding will be available both days. The sale will be conducted at Leland Little's gallery, located at 620 Cornerstone Court in Hillsborough.
2010 was a record sales year for the gallery, both in sale volume and quality. The new year has started strongly for LLAES Ltd with seven Estate Treasures Sales as well as preparations for the Spring Catalog Sale.
The auctioneer will continue the two-day auction program, which proved successful in 2010, starting with 106 lots of fine wine on Friday evening. The Fine Wine Department, the most recent at LLAES Ltd., consistently represents quality offerings and has garnered an international following.
This sale will feature vintage 1990, 1998 and 2000 Chateau Lafite Rothschild. The 2000 vintage has been described as "... a compelling wine, with extraordinary precision, great intensity, and a seamlessness." by none other than the legendary Robert Parker.
Parker scored the wine at the full 100 out of 100 - and that is not done lightly. It is listed at $1,500 to $3,000 for two bottles and should make an excellent investment.
His sale will also feature vintage 1964 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 12 bottles (est. $1,000-$1,500), vintage 1973 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 12 bottles (est. $2,000-$3,000), as well as other Chateau Mouton Rothschild vintages from 1973, 1982, 1990 and 1998.
