Langton’s has begun to host the online wine auction series “The Danny Younis Collection”.
The once-in-lifetime opportunity is providing local and global bidders access to Australia’s most remarkable collection of highly desired, rare fine wines from across the world.
The wine auction is available exclusively online at langtons.com.au/auctions and features assortment of Burgundy, Bordeaux & Sauternes, Rousseau, DRC, Vintage Madeira, Champagne and more throughout the eight-auction series.
“Collections this high-end don’t simply happen,” said Michael Anderson, LANGTONS Head of Auctions.
“They come about from a level of knowledge and understanding of the industry and its stars (both rising and established). The collection is a who’s who of top styles and cuvées from the world’s rarest producers.
“If you are a fine wine fanatic, as Danny clearly is, you will appreciate the gravity of what is being presented here. No wine lover should miss this opportunity as it may never present itself again.”
Over 5000 wines ardently collected by Younis will go under the hammer over eight successive auctions spanning nine weeks. It has an astonishing portfolio of Grand Cru Burgundy, Classified Bordeaux and Australian wines, prestige Champagnes, and a discerning selection of highly sought-after rarities.
“Bordeaux will always remain my No. 1 love,” said Younis. “At one stage I had over a thousand bottles of Rousseau. I’ve been emotionally attached to all of my wines and can indeed remember where each and every one of them was bought from. Provence is everything. If you’re a Burgundy collector, the wines of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti are really your holy grail. The reality is I’m never going to drink the amount of wines that I currently have and believe now is the time.”
