Christie’s three consecutive sales of Fine & Rare Wines in November 2012 achieved over HK$108,385,145 (US$14,057,553), and sold 83% by lot and 85% by value.
David Elswood, International Director of Wine in Europe & Asia, said, Christie’s three-day weekend of wine sales brought a grand total of HK$108m (US$14m). The sales presented a selection of rarest Bordeaux, fine Burgundy and other fine and rare wines. Buyers from across the region participated, underlining the perception that collectors are seeking the best wines with impeccable provenance. First Growth Bordeaux performed well, with Latour and Lafite making something of a comeback.
