Wine names can be confusing. An example is Beaulieu Vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Georges de Latour, Private Reserve, which is known by that name, by parts of that name, and even by the acronym BV.
Names are occasionally misstated or misspelled by the auction firm staff. When our research indicates that the name is incorrect, we make a correction. If it is impossible to determine which wine is intended that lot is omitted.
For California wines, some producers use the word "Estate" in the wine name, others do not, and some auction catalogs add the word "Estate" to certain California wines whether it appears on the bottle label or not.
Some Burgundy producers whose wine originates in a named vineyard site use an article such as "les" or "aux" which may or may not agree with the actual site name, and some articles used with a particular vineyard site can change from vintage to vintage.
Some California wines are alternately referred to as Proprietary Red and Cabernet Sauvignon. The word Meritage may also be used for such wines.
The Australian wine Penfolds Grange appears in catalogs that way and also as Hermitage Grange Bin 95 and also as Grange Hermitage and also as Penfolds Grange Shiraz.
In sum, starting with a confusing list of names and dozens of different interpretations of those names, we try to be as correct as possible. If you don't find the name you seek look for variations on the name or even parts of the name. If you see any obvious errors please let us know.
Most bottle sizes are traditional and are clear. However, Jeroboams present an unusual problem. Traditionally, in Bordeaux a Jeroboam contained six bottles, or 4.5 liters, and in Burgundy, a Jeroboam contained four bottles or 3.0 liters. So-called Jeroboams originating in other growing areas come in a range of sizes. We report the size reported by the auction house.
