Six-litre DRC La Tâche leads Zachys HK auction

A Methuselah (six litres) of Domaine Romanée-Conti La Tâche 1999 went under the hammer last Saturday at Zachys Hong Kong auction, selling for the record price of HK$735,000 (US$94,839), the American auction house has announced.

A total of 661 lots were offered at the auction with 97.28% sold for HK$31.17 million (US$4 million).

Other top lots included a banded original wood case of six bottles of Grands Echézeaux Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2008, which are sold for HK$104,125 (US$13,435), nearly double its pre-sale high estimate. Another six bottles of Richebourg Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2008 fetched HK$110,250 (US$14,226), while 12 bottles of DRC La Tâche 2000 achieved a grand total of HK$294,000 (US$37,935).

Danielle Cetani, Zachys’ auction director for Asia, commented: “These phenomenal results in our June 2017 auction shows that the fine market is still going from strength to strength. Zachys is proud to bring prominent fine and rare wines with excellent provenance—not only from estates such as Clarence Dillon and Hennessy, but private collectors as well–to our clients around the world.

“Clearly, Zachys continues to excel in the auction of the finest and rarest Burgundy, and we’re excited to build on this success in our upcoming New York and Hong Kong e-auctions.”
