Burgundy label Domaine de la Romanee-Conti has continued its success at auction in a recent New York sale.
At the Sotheby's auction in New York on September 10th, six magnums of La Tache were the top-selling lot when they achieved $60,500 from an Asian buyer - 50 per cent above estimate.
A further five bottles of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 1985 also sold for the same price, again paid by an Asian wine collector, the Drinks Business reports.
Duncan Sterling, head of New York Wine Auctions, told the publication: "We are delighted to start the new season with such a strong result.
"This was our highest value sale in New York this year with buyers from 15 different countries competing for top class wines."
Charles Curtis MW, head of wine for Christie's Asia, suggests that strong recent results for Domaine de la Romanee-Conti in sales rooms indicate a growing interest in Burgundy from Chinese investors.
