Bordeaux sweeps the board at Sotheby’s sale

It was a clean sweep for Bordeaux at Sotheby’s latest London sale with wines from the region accounting for the 10 top-selling lots.

Petrus 1982Petrus in particular was much in demand, six bottles of its 1982 making £12,338, another six bottles of its 1998 £10,575 and another six-pack of the 2005 the same.

Other best-selling lots included 1982 Latour, 2000 Mouton Rothschild, 1998, 1996 and 2000 Lafite.

In total the sale made £570,675 (US$816,065) and as Stephen Mould, Head of Sotheby’s Wine, Europe, commented, it wasn’t just Bordeaux that attracted buyers.

He said: “We kicked off the New Year with top prices for Bordeaux, and strong results for other regions, especially grand cru white Burgundy from Leflaive and superlative vintages from the Rhône. We saw wines from all over the globe exceed their estimates, from Australia’s flagship, Grange, to one of Italy’s Super Tuscans, Masseto. It was an encouraging start to 2016 and we now look forward to our Hong Kong sale on 30 January, followed by our next London sale on 24 February.”
