3 Bottles 1982 Château Margaux

Lot 4: 3 Bottles 1982 Château Margaux

by Auctionata AG

April 7, 2015, 2:00 PM CET

Berlin, Germany

Estimated Price: €1,520 - €1,900

Description: Three bottles of Château Margaux1982 vintageMargaux, Bordeaux/FranceOriginal filling quantity: 0.75 lFill level: 2x into neck, 1x base of neckRobert Parker (2009): 98/100Wine Spectator (2014): 92/100René Gabriel (2010): 18/20Stephen Tanzer (2002): 96+/100Condition:The fill levels are excellent (2x into neck, 1x base of neck). The labels and capsules are in perfect condition.Ratings:Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate #183 (June 2009): 98/100"Consistently scoring between 98-100, the superb 1982 Margaux may be slightly bigger, bolder, and more masculine than vintages produced over the last 15-20 years. Its dark plum/purple color is followed by notes of melted tar intermixed with sweet cassis and floral underpinnings. Very full-bodied and dense for a Chateau Margaux, with a slight rusticity to the tannins, it boasts blockbuster power, richness, and impressive aromatics. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life."Wine Spectator (Web 2014): 92/100"This relies on sheer muscle, with dark, plush layers of warmed fig, currant preserves and charcoal lined with extra notes of roasted vanilla, espresso and bittersweet cocoa. The tannins are ever-so-slightly drying on the finish, and this rumbles more than glides, lacking the full range of perfume and beguiling elegance the greatest Margauxs have.-Non-blind Château Margaux vertical (December 2013). Drink now through 2035."René Gabriel, Bordeaux Total (2010): 18/20„Delikate, parfümierte Nase, eine herrliche Süsse zeigend, sanft rosinierend aber auch noch etwas Frisches in Form von Preiselbeeren darin zeigend, dominikanischer Tabak, Feigen und Rosinen. Im Gaumen stoffig, leider auch gewisse sperrige Tannine die nicht so ganz zu einem Margaux und auch nicht so richtig zum Jahrgang 1982 passen."Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (July 2002): 96+/100"Deep ruby-red. Boysenberry, cassis, toasty oak and bitter chocolate on the slightly dusty nose. Penetrating and powerful; quite dry but almost exotically ripe, with sappy berry flavors complicated by graphite and licorice notes. Finishes very tannic and very long, with a strongly spicy character. 94(+?). Second bottle: Medium ruby. Vibrant aromas of boysenberry, violet and licorice. Pure silk in the mouth, with great sappy verve. Hugely concentrated and compellingly sweet. Utterly spherical wine, finishing with outstanding mounting fruit. Drink now to 2030." Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

U.S. M1 Helmet Painted for a 1st Lieutenant in the 42nd Infantry Division

Reactivated for the Second World War, the 42nd was among other tasks, responsible for the liberation of the Dachau Concentration Camp. After occupation duty in Austria, the 42nd was consolidated into a purely New York unit and remains active to this day with deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan.

WALTER KING STONE (American, 1875-1949) Rocky Cliffs ov

Lot 68127: WALTER KING STONE (American, 1875-1949) Rocky Cliffs ov

by Heritage Auctions

May 2, 2015, 2:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: WALTER KING STONE (American, 1875-1949) Rocky Cliffs over Valley Oil on canvas 24-1/2 x 29-1/2 inches (62.2 x 74.9 cm) Signed lower right: Walter King Stone PROVENANCE: Private collection, Virginia; Estate of the above. From the early 1900s until 1920, when he began a twenty-three-year tenure as Professor of Fine Arts at Cornell University, Walter Stone King had an active career as an illustrator and writer. He won widespread recognition for his nature illustrations, which appeared in books as well as the major national magazines including Scribner's, Century, Colliers', Outing Country Life in America, St. Nicholas, and The Country Gentleman. His favorite medium as an illustrator was flat watercolor wash combined with charcoal drawing. During his years at Cornell, however, his work went through a shift as he began painting in oil, exploiting not only the vivid color the medium afforded but also the varieties of texture it was able to achieve. In this dramatic view of the plains below a towering rocky cliff, Stone seems to have adopted the vantage point of one of the birds of prey he often illustrated. Like Maxfield Parrish and other successful illustrators who were sophisticated colorists, Stone rendered the shadows in this scene with a searing blue, which creates a forceful optical dazzle against the golden cliffs. Stone was a friend and favorite painter of the poet Robert Frost.

Condition Report: Original unlined canvas.

KARA WALKER (1969 -   ) Freedom, A Fable: A Curious Interpretation of the Wit of a Negress in Troubled Times.

Lot 168: KARA WALKER (1969 - ) Freedom, A Fable: A Curious Interpretation of the Wit of a Negress in Troubled Times.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: KARA WALKER (1969 - ) Freedom, A Fable: A Curious Interpretation of the Wit of a Negress in Troubled Times. Bound pop-up book, with offset lithographs and five laser-cut, pop-up silhouettes on wove paper, 1997. 238x213 mm; 9 3/8x8 3/8 inches, full red leather binding as issued. Edition of 4000. Each year, the Peter Norton family commissions an art edition to celebrate the Christmas season and holidays. The book was privately published and gifted to friends. Another copy of this book is in the collection of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. Through the use of a pop-up book, Kara Walker takes a medium typically relegated to young children's entertainment, and writes of a "soon-to-be emancipated 19th century Negress." What begins as a seemingly hopeful tale of a free life written in the mode of a fairy tale, Walker's prose quickly mimics her dark and provocative imagery, detailing the racial and sexual horrors that awaited a young African-American woman in the 19th century.
