Christie’s second sale on 26 November, the Exceptional Private Collection, realised HK$25,198,618 (US$3,263,036) and was sold 95% by lot with Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Romanée-Conti 1988 commanding HK$1,347,500 (US$174,491).

Tim Triptree, head of sales said: “We are delighted to have achieved such pleasing results on the back of the Christie’s 250th anniversary global celebrations in Hong Kong.

“Bidding was determinedly dynamic over these two days, which saw strong participation from international clients, especially from Asia.
