Selling Off the El Bulli Cellar

2 people like this
It's really over. Ferran Adriŕ's elBulli shut it's doors last July and now the immense, interesting and eclectic cellar is being auctioned at Sotheby's. Details about the when and where of the sale are still under wraps, but the 139 page wine list can be found here.

The list is particularly eclectic because of the challenges elBulli co-owner and unofficial wine director Juli Soler had pairing wines to the experimental and many coursed cuisine of Adriŕ. The diversity of the list may mean that there are relative bargains to be had for those looking for a piece of drinkable culinary history. While the high-end heavy hitters are well represented on the list with a 5,350 Euro bottle of 1999 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée Conti and a nice little 2000 Pétrus at 3,745 euros, there are also bottles in the 20 Euro range. Spain is well represented as well as Bordeaux and Burgundy, but there are also some more far flung choices like New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs and Canadian ice wines.
