Burgundy sale 100% sold for HDH

Hart Davis Hart’s “A Celebration of Burgundy” sale was 100% sold in Chicago, with strong bidding leading to double the pre-sale estimate.

With an enthusiastic response to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Armand Rousseau and an ex-cellar collection from Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat, the final sale total hit US$4.4million.

DRC dominated the most expensive lots, with collections of 1990 and 1999 selling for $41,825 and $35,850 respectively.

A case of Coche-Dury 2005 Corton-Charlemagne managed to sneak into the top lots at $26,290.

However, it was elsewhere that estimates were smashed, with a case of Domaine Ponsot 1991 Clos de la Roche, Vieilles Vignes, selling for $19,120; another four bottles of the same wine from 1985 making $17,925 and three bottles of Armand Rousseau 1991 Chambertin realising $8,963.

The collection from Hudelot-Noëllat included several large formats and owner Charles van Canneyt was in attendance to see a Jeroboams of 2011 Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant make $3,585 apiece.

CEO Paul Hart said: “The weekend was packed with energy and excitement – Chef Johan’s cooking paired with wines from Hudelot-Noëllat provided for an exceptional pre-auction evening and lots of fun!

“Burgundy continued to generate excitement and strong prices. The outpouring of bids from around the globe was tremendous.”
