American buyers refocus on Bordeaux at Sotheby’s NY auction this week

LafiteDuncan Sterling, head of New York Wine Auctions at Sotheby’s said: “North America reasserted itself in the auction market today accounting for 15 out of the top 20 buyers in our sale. This, coupled with continued demand from Brazil and Mexico drove the sale total comfortably over the high estimate”.

The auction highlights included top value lot of a case of 1982 Lafite, sold at US$36,750 (£23,500) – a discount on the current Liv-ex best list price quote of £30,000 and evidence of the significant bargains to be had right now in Bordeaux’s finest wines.
