Records tumble for Trotanoy at auction

An ex-cellar collection of Château Trotanoy realised US$238,044 at auction in Chicago last weekend.

The sale held by Hart Davis Hart saw some of the house’s strongest bidding of the season, with the overall sale reaching $3,668,745.

Of the Trotanoy on sale, highlights included an imperial of 1982 for $6,573 (double its estimate) and a case of 1998 for the same amount (also double its estimate).

The post-sale release went on to add: “Bidding was strong across all categories and vintages”, with a Burgundy receiving particularly strong bids.

A five magnum lot of 1985 Clos de la Roche, Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Ponsot doubled its high estimates to reach $41,825, while a six bottle case of 1962 Musigny Maison Leroy also sold well over its estimates to realize $17,925.

Chairman John Hart said: “These results underscore the fact that Hart Davis Hart is the best place in the world to buy and sell wines at auction.

“We look forward to celebrating the end of a successful 2012 with you at TRU the weekend of 7-8 December.”
