Top 10 bottle lots on iDealwine.com

6th August, 2014 by Lucy Shaw

Set up in 2000 by three former Paris Stock Exchange executives, iDealwine.com offers users the chance to buy and sell fine and rare wines and the opportunity to value the wines in their cellar.

The company hosts around 250 fine wine auctions in Europe every year, along with a series of online auctions. The following ten wines are the highest grossing single bottle lots sold at online auctions hosted by iDealwine between January and June this year.

Spread across 10 different auctions and 15,725 lots, with bidders hailing from 35 different countries, as far as single bottle lots are concerned, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti stole the show, accounting for seven of the wines in the top 10 from vintages spanning between 1969 and 2004.

Of the top 100 highest grossing bottles, 60 of them came from Bordeaux, proving the region still attracts buyers willing to flash the cash, though Burgundy often trumped Bordeaux in terms of the final hammer price, accounting for eight of the wines in the top 10.

While 33 vintages of Pomerol estate Château Pétrus made it into the top 100, only one found its way onto the top 10, while the 2000 vintage in Bordeaux is proving increasingly popular as an investment. Click through to find out which ten single bottles commanded the highest prices when the hammer finally fell.
