The top lot for this sale was the rare vertical collection of Château Mouton Rothschild from 1945-2005 which fetched HK$612,500 (US$79,314).

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.

“The strong sell-through rates once again demonstrate the importance of Hong Kong as the hub for collectors of the world’s finest and most coveted wines.”
