The most exciting was a bottle of Romanee-Conti La Tache, one of the most sought after Burgundy wines, bearing the date 1945 which produced large pre-sale interest. The final price from a telephone bidder was a ten times pre-sale estimate of £3400.
The largest section in the sale was the Bordeaux, with a wide variety of mixed lots and single bottles. The highest price was £700 for a case of six bottles of 2000 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux. A single bottle of 1968 Chateau d’Yquem reached £320 and two single bottles of 1975 Chateau Haut Brion found £260 and £250 respectively. Two bottles of 1956 Chateau Latour together sold for £420.
The other longest section was devoted to whisky and the rare single mats were subject to intense bidding in the room. The best price here was £600 for a bottle of 1975 Ardbeg “Old and Rare” bottled in 2006, one of just 180 bottles. Other single bottles included a 1960 Convalmore bottled in 2002 selling at £300 and a Bowmore 21 year old Islay Malt £250.
The miscellanea section featured two lots involving old Chartreuse. One comprising three bottles and four half bottles with four other bottles of spirits reached £1050. A single old bottle of Chartreuse, probably 1940’s, sold well at £620.
Another particularly lively section was the Champagne. A magnum of 1975 Joseph Perriere reached £210, a bottle of 1995 Louis Roederer Cristal Rose found £240, and a pair of 1990 Dom Perignon sold together for £290. Best of all was a magnum of 1966 Dom Perignon which tripled expectations at a price of £1250.comments powered by Disqus
