HDH off to ‘tremendous’ start

US auction house Hart Davis Hart has said it is off to a tremendous start to the year after its latest auction surged to a US$5.6 million total.

The Chicago-based auctioneer held a two-day auction from 10-11 February with hammer prices “higher than we’ve seen since 2014,” the company said in a statement.

Wines from the collection of Huston Street in particular brought in strong results with the consignment achieving $785,975 in total, as buyers bid hard for lots such as 2002 La Tâche and 1982 Château Latour.

An offering of Napa wines direct from the cellars of the Bryant family also performed very well, making $110,986 in total while a further consignment from Dom Pérignon made $104,443.

Top lots included: a 12-bottles assorted case of 1999 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, a Methuselah of 1985 La Tâche, 12 bottles of 1989 Pétrus, a full case of 1982 Lafite and another 12-pack of 1993 Vosne-Romanée Beaux Monts from Domaine Leroy.
