Record price for 1992 Grange des Pères

A bidding war at a recent online sale led to a new record price of just over €5,000 for the first vintage of one of the Languedoc’s leading domains, Grange des Pères.

Sold during iDealwine’s recent sale that finished on 4 December, the bottle of 1992 red was eventually sold for €5,219 to a French enthusiast who outlasted two other bidders.

The bottle was part of a collection of 150 from the estate being auctioned that day, many more of which also went for record prices.

Three over bottles, of 1992, 1993 and 1994 were sold for over €1,000 each, the 1992 going for over €5,000 as a result of a mad tussle and the 1993’s final click price of €1,418 was 770% over its starting bid.

The estate’s rare white wines also saw high demand, with the 1996 reaching €448 and the 2004 €552.

iDealwine commented: “We frequently see wines reach record prices on the iDealwine platform, not only for the auction classics but also wines from more niche estates.”
