A recent auction hosted by Acker Merrall & Condit in New York saw an impressive £3.2 million worth of wine sold, including a jeroboam of La Tache, Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 2005 for £13,444.
The sale at the Central Park Boathouse on September 11th also featured a dozen bottles of Musigny 2005, which went for £14,235, as well as two separate 12-bottle lots of Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2000 for £15,820, Paul Fraser Collectibles reports.
However, the star of the show proved to be a case of Vosne Romanee Les Gaudichots 1929, which sparked a fierce bidding war to end up with an eventual sale price of £98,850.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports that a two-day Christie's sale in Hong Kong of top Bordeaux such as Latour, Margaux and Haut-Brion raised HK $48.13 million (£4 million).
This will be followed next month by a Sotheby's auction of nearly 2,000 bottles of Lafite, sourced directly from the chateau's cellars.
