An historic wine sale at Sotheby’s London this week raised over £1million from the collection of a single-owner comprising a superb collection of Bordeaux wines.
Head of wine for Sotheby’s Europe, Stephen Mould explained that the sale “was a landmark auction for Sotheby’s – our first ever ‘white-glove’ wine sale in London as it was 100% sold by both lot and value.”
The premium lots were dominated by Petrus, with a case of the 2000 vintage making the top spot at £30,550. Other wines featured included a case of 1989 Haut-Brion which raised £10,810, a case of 2000 Lafite – £10,340 and 2000 Cheval Blanc (12 x 75) £6,815. The collection’s impeccable provenance secured the £1M raised and reaffirmed the value of these extraordinary Bordeaux wines.
