Simon Tam, Head of Wine, China, said: "Christie’s three-day sale achieved over HK$69 million/over US$9 million, demonstrating a new level of sophistication and maturity of the wine market. One of the most exciting moments of the auction was the sale of a case of 1978 Romanée-Conti, which achieved HK$3,675,000/ US$476,280, a world auction record for Romanée-Conti. It was extremely gratifying to see wines from the legendary terroir of Champagne, Spain, Barolo and Australia reach new levels alongside the classics of the finest Bordeaux and Burgundy. This auction emphasized the growing demand and importance for premium wines with the finest provenance."
