Domaine Pierre Gelin Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru

The leading producer in the village of Fixin, Domaine Pierre Gelin was established in 1925. The 13-hectare domaine includes holdings in five of the eight Premier Crus in Fixin, including full ownership of the famed Clos Napoléon. Pierre-Emmanuel, Pierre’s grandson, has been making wines for the domaine since 2000. Being environmentally conscious, Pierre-Emmanuel practises organic farming (although not certified) and works to minimize impact in the cellar as well. He aims to produce pure and honest wines – and he succeeds! His wines are well-structured and benefit from a few years of ageing in order to reveal their full potential.

MEET OUR FOUNDER

Simon Tam

Founder & Auctioneer
Born in Hong Kong and growing up in Australia, with vineyards literally on his doorstep, Simon Tam has been developing and nurturing wine lovers in Asia for the last three decades. Always ahead of his time, Simon opened the first wine schools in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Macao in 1993. He was the author of the first ever “Chinese Food & Wine Pairing” column in South China Morning Post, where he elaborated on the art of pairing day-to-day family dishes with some of the most coveted wines in the world. The iconic ‘Mapo Tofu with JJ Prum Spatlese Riesling’ pairing was a particular fan favourite! He also pioneered the food pairing app “Flavour Colours”, based on changing of the seasons and finding the right wine pairings, particularly for Chinese dishes. Simon has always been passionate about bringing wine lovers from different cultures together, focusing on bringing ‘the delicious West to the thirsty East’. He was voted “Best Wine Consultant” by the UK’s Wine Business International magazine for his consultancy work with many winemaker associations around the world. Simon has judged in more than 150 wine competitions worldwide. He is the co-founding director of Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Competition, and was also founding chairman of the Greater China Wine Critics Association. He spent a decade as Christie’s Asia Pacific Head of Wine, joining as the first Chinese Head of Wine in the Company’s 250-year history. Itching to break away from tradition and de-mystify the fine and rare wine industry, Simon founded Aeos Auctions early in 2021. His mission is to share his passion with wine lovers from all walks of life. “At Aeos Auctions, we simply share good taste” Simon notes.

Aeos Auctions

Buyers Condition of Sale

BIDDING INFORMATION

Each Auction has Conditions of Sale that must be agreed to for bidders to participate. The specific Auction Conditions of Sale will prevail in the case of any differences than those listed below.

Before bidding, all Bidders must read the Bidding Information and the Conditions of Sale published on the Company website and mobile app. By participating in an auction, the Bidder agrees to be bound by the Conditions of Sale.

Bidder Registration

To participate in any sale, you will need to register via the Company website www.aeosauctions.com or mobile app (Aeos) and be subject to a credit card verification process. You will be automatically issued a digital paddle number which will be used to identify you during the applicable sale.

Please do not share your login information with anyone as any lots sold to your paddle number will be invoiced to you.

A 22.5% Buyer's Premium will be added to the successful bid price of each lot purchased and is payable by the Buyer.

Bidding

For online auctions, our primary means of bidding will be online. Bidders are, however, welcome to contact our team at hello@aeosauctions.com to submit written absentee bids.

In the case of a live auction, bidding will be accepted through various methods, including in-room, telephone, online and written absentee bids. Bidders who have registered to bid by more than one method (for example, both in-room and online) must monitor their own bidding activities to prevent bidding against themselves.

Payment

Invoices for purchases will be emailed to your registered email address within 2 days after the sale has ended. Invoices are due within 14 calendar days of purchase for live sales and 7 calendar days of purchase for online sales. At the end of this 14- or 7-calendar day period (as applicable), the Company reserves the right to charge the Buyer's credit card on file for any amounts still due.

Payment can be made in Hong Kong Dollars by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, UnionPay), cheque, bank transfer or cash.

BANK DETAILS

Collection & Delivery of Purchases

We offer 30-days of free storage in our temperature-controlled warehouse from the end of the sale. For orders not collected or delivered thereafter, storage fees may be incurred.

Purchased lots can be collected or delivered once the invoice has been settled in full, with 72 hours’ notice.

Sale Results

Results for the sale are available upon request and the Company cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions, howsoever caused. Sellers should await their settlement statement as confirmation of any proceeds of sale.

CONDITIONS OF SALE:

1. BUYER’S AGREEMENT

By bidding at the auction, the bidder (“Bidder”) agrees that this Buyer’s Conditions of Sale (“Conditions of Sale”), together with the Delivery Policy, Bottle Description and Absentee Bids Form, as published by Aeos Auctions Limited (“the Company”) constitute Bidder’s entire agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Company and the seller (“Seller”) concerning the property (“Property”) listed in the sale. The Company may amend the Agreement from time to time and at any time before, during and after any auction through posted notices, addenda or errata or oral salesroom announcements during the sale. By bidding at auction, Bidder agrees to be bound by all terms and conditions of the Agreement.

2. Aeos AUCTIONS AS AGENT

Except as otherwise stated in the Agreement, the Company acts strictly as an agent for the Seller. The Agreement for the sale of all Property is therefore between Seller and the highest Bidder accepted by the auctioneer (“Buyer”). Property is divided into separate groupings as solely determined by the Company and each such grouping (a “Lot”) is subject to a separate bid at auction.

3. BEFORE AUCTION

a) Registration: To bid in this auction, Bidder must complete a digital registration, provide credit card details for verification, and confirm they are of age to participate. The Company retains the absolute right to refuse any prospective Bidder participation in any auction.

Bidder will be issued with a paddle number. This will be attributed to Bidder for the auction. Should a successful bid be made, the associated paddle number will be considered to have won the lot. Bidder should not let anyone else use his paddle as all Lots will be invoiced to the name and address registered to the paddle number. Once an invoice is issued it will not be changed. The paddle associated with the last bid received will be considered to have won the Lot.

b) Personal information: Without your express prior refusal, the Company will be allowed to keep your personal information and may use it to inform you of our upcoming sales, services, and events.

c) Examination of Wines: While care is taken to ensure the correctness of Lot descriptions, the Company and any Seller are not liable for any description or error or omission in any description and Bidders cannot rely on the Company or any Seller. Bidders are advised to examine any lots carefully before an auction at the Company’s temperature-controlled warehouse and can do so by appointment. Please contact us at hello@aeosauctions.com.

d) Online, Absentee, & Telephone Bids: The acceptance and execution of written or telephone bids are a discretionary free service offered strictly as an accommodation to Bidders and is undertaken by the Company subject to its obligations at the time of auction. Accordingly, the Company is in no event liable for any errors or omissions in executing such written bids or for any failure to execute any such bids.

Online Bids: All bids submitted online are immediately executed. You cannot cancel a bid once it has been submitted. You may, however, adjust your maximum bid while it is higher than the current standing bid.

We recommend submitting your maximum bid when bidding online. If a maximum bid is submitted, bids will be placed on your behalf only as much as is required to ensure you remain the highest bidder (up to your maximum bid). In cases when two equivalent maximum bids are submitted, the earlier one will hold.

Estimates and Bid amounts may be shown in a secondary currency by the user selecting a preferred viewing currency on the website. Please note these values are only an estimate, based on the recent exchange rate and are not legally binding. All bids, as well as final payments, will be conducted in Hong Kong Dollars.

Live auctions will open for bidding on the Company website at www.aeosauctions.com before and during the scheduled live auction date. Bids may be submitted online during this period.

The Company assumes no responsibility for disputes or errors arising from online bid activity. In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer's decision is final. In the event of communication delays or failures, the auction will not be stopped.

Written Absentee Bids: Bidders are welcome to submit written absentee bids which will be recorded as soon as possible from confirmation of receipt. This will ensure the bids submitted first on any given lot will be accepted first by our time-based bidding system.

To place absentee bids, use the form provided herein or at www.aeosauctions.com. Please be sure to accurately record the lot numbers and the highest hammer price you are willing to pay for the lot.

Please use the bid increments included in the absentee bid form, bids off increment will be rounded up to the next bidding increment.

Absentee bidding will close 24 hours before the opening of the sale.

Placing Telephone Bids in Live Sales: Telephone bids are accepted at the Company’s discretion and the Bidder’s risk. Please request your telephone bidding soonest ahead of the sale, at least 24 hours to ensure a telephone line can be allocated, along with a team member to accommodate language requirements.

The Company will not be responsible for bidding on behalf of Bidder if Bidder is unavailable at the time of the auction or if the telephone connection is interrupted during bidding. Such bids are made at Bidders’ own risk and the Company cannot accept liability for any failure to receive and/ or place any such bids.

Bidding in Person at Live Sales: To bid in person, please register for and collect a numbered paddle before the auction begins. Proof of identity will be required. New clients are encouraged to register at least 48 hours in advance of a sale to allow sufficient time for us to process your information. All lots sold will be invoiced to the name and address to which the paddle has been registered and invoices cannot be transferred to other names and addresses. Please do not mislay your paddle; in the event of loss, inform our team immediately. At the end of the sale, please return your paddle to the registration desk.

4. DURING AUCTION:

a) Warranties: By bidding at auction, whether in person, through absentee bidding, telephone bidding, online bidding or otherwise, Bidders represent and warrant that (i) they are at least eighteen (18) years of age, (ii) they have the legal authority, right, and capacity to buy, receive, possess and otherwise deal in any Lot purchased, and (iii) any bids made by Bidder or on Bidder’s behalf are not under any anti-competitive agreement and are otherwise in compliance with all applicable laws.

b) No Liability: In no event shall the Company be liable for any errors in entering any bids or for failure to enter any bids.

c) Estimates: Each lot (“Lot”) includes a description and an estimated price that is the Company’s opinion of the price expected at auction. Estimates are a guide for Bidders and generally reflect recent market prices for comparable products. Estimates consider condition, rarity, quality, and provenance. Estimates are determined in advance of the sale and are therefore subject to revision. Bidders should not rely upon estimates as a prediction of actual selling prices. Estimates do not include Buyer's Premium or any sales taxes as may be applicable

All estimations, increments and hammer prices are represented in Hong Kong Dollars. Currency exchange is provided for reference only and the Hong Kong Dollar amount will always prevail.

d) Lot Descriptions: This catalogue endeavours to describe the property listed herein accurately. However, the Company and the Seller shall not be liable for any such description and expressly disclaim any representation or warranty regarding the origin, physical condition, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, the correctness of catalogue description, size, quality, condition, rarity, authenticity, attribution, value, importance, provenance, previous storage conditions or historical relevance of any Property herein. The Company further retains the absolute right to amend at any time and in any manner any description of any Property contained herein. Classifications in the text are for identification purposes only and based on standard sources. Bidders must make appropriate allowances for natural variations in ullages, conditions of cases, labels, corks, and wine. Each statement contained in any catalogue and each other statement, whether oral or written, and whether made at an auction or in an advertisement, bill of sale, addendum, posting, notice, announcement or otherwise, is a statement of opinion only and shall not be relied upon by any Bidder or otherwise be deemed a warranty or representation. Images appearing on the website, the printed catalogue or elsewhere are for illustrative purposes only and may not be relied upon to reveal imperfections in any products. The Company and the Seller make no representation or warranty, express or implied, as to whether the Buyer acquires any copyright or other reproduction rights in any property. Neither the Company nor the Seller shall be liable for errors or omissions in the catalogue or any supplemental material. Bidders are urged and advised to inspect the property before the auction, including the cases, labels, corks and wines, and must satisfy themselves by inspection or other means as to all considerations pertinent to any decision to place any bid. EACH PRODUCT AND EACH LOT HEREIN IS SOLD “AS IS,” AND BUYERS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY RELIANCE ON THE COMPANY, THE SELLER, OR THE CATALOGUE.

e) Bidding by the Company: The Company reserves the right to bid on any lot on its own behalf, subject to the same terms and conditions applicable to all other Bidders.

f) No Sellers Bidding: Sellers have agreed not to enter a bid or to cause a bid to be entered on their behalf on any Property of which they are the owner.

g) Parcel Lots in Live Sales: A sequence of identical Lots carrying the same estimates and consisting of the same type of wine, quantity and bottle size is considered a parcel (a “Parcel”). The Buyer of the first Lot in such Parcel may, in the discretion of the auctioneer, be granted the option to buy any or all additional Lots in the Parcel for the same hammer price if there is no higher absentee bid on any subsequent Lot within the Parcel.

If the option is not exercised on all such Lots, the auctioneer will open bidding on the next unsold Lot and may elect to offer the Buyer of that Lot the option to take any or all of the remaining Lots in the Parcel. Bidding shall continue in the same manner until all Lots in the Parcel have been offered and declared sold or unsold by the auctioneer.

f)Auctioneer’s Discretion: The Company and/or auctioneer has the sole and absolute discretion to (i) withdraw any Lot; (ii) divide any Lot; (iii) combine any two or more Lots; (iv) refuse any bid; (v) advance the bidding, including changing the increments, in such a manner as the Company and/or auctioneer may see fit; and (vi) in the event of error or dispute, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, cancel the sale, or re-offer and resell the disputed Lot. Wherever the Company and/or auctioneer exercises its discretion, its decision is final, binding, and conclusive in all respects.

The Company reserves the right to reject any bid.

h) Successful Bids: The fall of the auctioneer's hammer or the close of the online sale indicates the final bid, at which time the Buyer assumes full responsibility for the lot. Successful Buyers will be notified and invoiced within 2 days after the close of the sale. Successful Buyers will pay the price of the final bid plus a 22.5% Buyer's Premium. Please note, the bidding may be reopened at the auctioneer's discretion. The final bid is provisional until the end of the auction. The auctioneer is entitled to re-open the bidding at his discretion at any time before the end of the auction. At the end of the auction, the final bid becomes irrevocable.

j) Purchase Price: The purchase price payable by the Buyer (“Purchase Price”) will be the sum of the final bid price (the “Hammer Price”) and the Buyer's Premium. The Buyer's Premium is 22.5% of the Hammer Price. The purchase price is exclusive of any goods or service tax or other tax (whether imposed by Hong Kong or otherwise). If any such tax were to be paid under Hong Kong laws or any other laws, the Buyer shall be solely responsible to pay such tax and at the rate and time as required by the relevant law, or if such tax is to be paid by the Company, such tax may be added to the purchase price payable by the Buyer.

k) Transfer of Title: The Buyer hereby acknowledges and agrees that title of any Property shifts to the Buyer upon the issuance of the final invoice by the Company (“Final Invoice”). The Buyer hereby names and authorizes the Company as the Buyer’s exclusive agent to store or take any other action authorized by this Agreement until the Buyer remits payment for the Final Invoice in full to the Company. The Buyer acknowledges and waives the right to take possession of any purchased Lot or Lots until the Buyer remits payment in full of the Final Invoice to the Company.

5. AFTER SALE:

The Buyer agrees that any successful bid is subject to the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement. The Company may change the terms of this Agreement in advance of its being entered into, by setting out different terms by notices on the Company website, mobile app or in the sale venue before and/ or during the auction. The Buyer should be alert to this possibility of changes and ask if there have been any.

a) Removal of Lots: No property may be removed from the Company’s premises until Buyer has paid the Purchase Price in full plus all other fees and taxes (inclusive of any taxes due in the location of the auction on Buyers who are not residents of such location) and has satisfied such terms as the Company, in its sole discretion, shall require. The Company reserves the right to withhold all property until all outstanding amounts are paid in full for purchases from any other auction(s).

b) Payment: Subject to the foregoing, all lots are to be paid for no later than of the fourteenth (14th) calendar day following a live sale, or seven (7) calendar days following an online sale, and removed from the Company premises at Buyer's expense no later than thirty (30) calendar days after the date of sale. If payment is not made within fourteen (14) calendar days of purchase for live sales and seven (7) calendar days of purchase for online sales, the Company reserves the right to charge the credit card on file for the full amount due or to impose a late charge of up to 2% per month of the Purchase Price, in addition to any other rights and remedies available by law to the Company. If the Buyer fails to collect the purchased lots from the Company’s premises within thirty (30) days of the sale, the Buyer may be liable to the Company for interest, storage fees and handling charges.

Payment can be made in Hong Kong Dollars by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, UnionPay), cheque, bank transfer or cash.

c) Default by Buyer: If Buyer fails to make the payment following the Conditions of Sale within ninety (90) days following the auction, the Company may, in its absolute discretion:

i. Cancel the sale.

ii. Resell Property publicly or privately for Buyer’s account and at Buyer’s risk and charge Buyer for any deficiency between the final bid in the resale and the final bid placed by Buyer, in addition to all costs and expenses of both the initial sale and the resale at the Company’s regular rates and the Buyer’s premium due in connection with the initial sale;

iii. Set off all sums due from Buyer against any amounts which the Company may owe to Buyer.

iv. Exercise all the rights and remedies of a party holding a priority perfected security interest in any Property or other property in the Company’s possession owned or consigned by the Buyer.

v. Collect from the Buyer the total amount due plus any loss, cost or expense incurred by the Company in effecting such collection.

vi. Charge the Buyer interest at the rate of eighteen per cent (18%) per annum on all sums due from Buyer.

vii. Collect from Buyer the fees, expenses, and disbursements of legal counsel to the Company incurred in exercising any one or more of the rights or remedies outlined in this Agreement.

viii. Not permit Buyer directly or indirectly to participate in future auctions.

ix. Exercise any right or remedy against the Buyer available to the Seller; and

x. Assert any other rights or remedies available at law or in equity.

The Company may, in its discretion, exercise any one or more of the preceding remedies or any combination thereof.

d) Shipping:: All packaging, handling, transporting, insuring, and delivering of purchased Property are the sole responsibility of Buyer and occur at the sole risk and expense of Buyer, whether or not Buyer engages the Company for such purpose. Buyer shall pay the Company in advance for all expenses incurred by the Company in engaging such services unless the Company chooses in its sole discretion to bill Buyer after such services are performed.

e) Export/ Import Permits: It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import license. A delay in obtaining licenses shall neither justify the rescission of any sale nor excuse a delay in providing full payment for the Lot. Local laws may prohibit the importation of some property and/or may prohibit the resale of some property in the country of importation; no such restriction shall justify the rescission of any sale or delay in making full payment for the Lot.

f) Delivery Restrictions: Bidders are also reminded that various jurisdictions impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverage products which may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction by a purchaser from another jurisdiction, without requiring the purchaser, a consignor or shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. The Company shall not as a condition of sale assume any obligation or bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying for or obtaining the requisite permits or licenses in the event the quantity purchased exceeds said limitations.

g) Taxation: Taxation is determined by the laws of the destination of shipment. It is Buyer’s responsibility to ensure compliance with applicable tax laws for shipments. Some jurisdictions may also impose excise taxes on shipments of Property into their territory. The Company may collect such excise taxes from Buyer, where required.

h) Condition of Goods: Notwithstanding any other terms of these Conditions of Sale, if within 3 calendar days of the date of delivery of the property, the Buyer notifies the Company in writing of a claim that any lot is short, ullaged, or has suffered breakage, then the Company, in its sole discretion, will decide any such claim as between the Seller and the Buyer and may rescind the sale and refund all or part of the Purchase Price received. This does not affect any other rights of the Buyer at law or under these Conditions of Sale. Notwithstanding any other terms of these Conditions of Sale, if a Buyer purchased property that is inauthentic and returns such property to the Company within ninety (90) calendar days of the date of delivery, then the Company agrees to rescind the sale and refund the Purchase Price received. The benefit of this Condition of Sale is not assignable and shall apply only to the original Buyer of the lot and not to subsequent assigns, buyers, heirs, owners or others who have acquired or may acquire an interest therein.

To be able to claim under this Clause, the Buyer must (i) notify the Company in writing within the 90 days of the reasons for believing the wine to be counterfeit, specifying the date of purchase and the reasons for such question; and (ii) return the wine to the Company in the same condition as at the date of sale to the Buyer and be able to transfer good title to the wine free from any third party claims arising after the date of such sale. The Company in its sole discretion will decide the validity of any such claim as between the Company and the Buyer. It is specifically understood and agreed that the rescission of a sale and the refund of the original purchase price is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available as a matter of law, or in equity. The Company shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages incurred or claimed, including without limitation, loss of profits or interest.

The Company has the right to demand from the Buyer two independent specialist reports which are recognized by the specialist sector concerned and which are accepted by the Company and the Buyer at the expense of the Buyer. The Company shall not be subject to any report presented by the Buyer and retains the right to seek additional expert opinion at the expense of the Company.

DELIVERY POLICY:

The Company provides 30-days free storage in their temperature-controlled warehouse.

Once payment is received in full, the Buyer may arrange to collect the goods from the Company warehouse with at least 72-hours’ notice.

Delivery
Purchases will not automatically be shipped. Once payment has been received, arrangements can be made to deliver the wines to the Buyer For further information on collection and delivery assistance, please call 852-3689 1607 or email hello@aeosauctions.com.

To ensure the safety of the wines, it may be necessary in some shipments to repack the wines in protective shipping containers and to ship the wooden cases separately at an additional charge.

BOTTLE DESCRIPTION:

It is the Company’s general policy to describe levels for wines twenty years of age or older. Unless otherwise noted, ullage levels will be appropriate for age.

Though every effort is made to describe or measure the levels of older vintages, corks over 20 years old begin to lose their elasticity and levels can change between cataloguing and sale. Old corks have also been known to fail during or after shipment. There is always a risk of cork failure with old wines, and the Company assumes no responsibility for this.

Under no circumstances can an adjustment of price or credit be made after delivery.

Unless otherwise stated, Bordeaux are Château bottled.

ULLAGE LEVELS

Bordeaux: For wines in bottles with defined shoulders, including Bordeaux, Port, and other wines, the level is measured and catalogued as follows:

BN - BASE NECK: Perfectly good for any age of wine.
Outstandingly good for a wine of 10 years in bottle, or longer.
VTS - VERY TOP SHOULDER
TS - TOP SHOULDER: Normal for any Bordeaux 15 years old or older.
HS - HIGH SHOULDER: Slight natural reduction through the easing of the cork and evaporation through cork and capsule. Usually no problem. Acceptable for any wine over 20 years old. Exceptional for pre-1950 wines.
MS - MID SHOULDER: Probably some weakening of the cork and some risk. Not abnormal for wines 30 - 40 years of age. Estimates usually take this into account.
LS - LOW SHOULDER: Risky and usually only accepted for sale if wine or label exceptionally rare or interesting.
BS - BOTTOM SHOULDER: Not acceptable for sale unless a rare sort of bottle. Wine will usually be undrinkable.

Burgundy: Burgundy, German, Alsatian, and similar bottles with gently sloping sides are measured and the distance from the wine to the cork or capsule, depending on which is visible, is given in centimetres. Burgundy fills under 2 cm will not be mentioned.

- The condition and drinkability of Burgundy are less affected by ullage than its equivalent from Bordeaux.
- A 5 - 7 cm ullage in a 50-year-old Burgundy can be considered normal, indeed good for age.
- 3.5-4 cm excellent for age.
- Champagne will be measured as the distance between the liquid and the base of the bottle in an upturned bottle..

At the Company’s discretion, we will not always cut the bands on the original packaging of younger wines. In such cases, all wines are sold AS IS and will not accept returns for any issues the Buyer might discover after the band is cut.

Labels and capsules can become soiled, stained, or otherwise marked, especially with older vintages. The condition of the label will not always be specified for bottles appropriate for age. Bidders are invited to make appointments to inspect wine in person.

At times, bottle numbers will be covered in photos to protect Seller’s anonymity.

Since all the wine sold by the Company is consigned, and much of it is rare, the Company cannot replace wines that have been ruined because of cork taint. WE DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS OF CORKED WINE NOR DO WE REFUND FOR CORKED WINE.
