HDH Burgundy sale hits US$7.7m

US auctioneer Hart Davis Hart recently hosted its largest ever ‘Celebration of Burgundy’ sale which realised US$7.7 million (£6m).

The sale, which took place over two days, was 100% sold with over 200 different Burgundian domaines represented.

As one might imagine there was a high proportion of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti at the sale, spanning 73 vintages back to 1942 and covering all of the domaine’s grand cru sites.

The sale’s top lot was a Jeroboam of 2001 Romanée-Conti which went for a record-breaking $95,600, while eight other DRC lots were counted in the sale’s top 10 results and the consigned DRC made $1.8m in total.

There were impressive results for other wines as well however, with six bottles of Domaine Dujac’s 2014 Romanée-St-Vivant making $20,315 and four magnums of Prieuré-Roch’s 2002 Chambertin Clos de Beze realising $14,340.

The 159 lots of Armand Rousseau made $762,828 in total; 87 lots of Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier’s wines made $377,058 and 22 lots of Clos du Tart realised $65,725.
