Christie's HK sold 100% at single owner wine auction

Christie’s HK sale of Fine & Rare Wines: The Property of a Gentleman Part II on Saturday totaled $2.6 million, 100% sold both by lots and by value. David Elswood, International Head of Wine Sales, commented, the sale results proved that Asian demand for Bordeaux wines of the finest quality and provenance is "alive and well."

Large format bottles sold particularly well, with the majority of them surpassing the high estimate, marking a change in the collecting habits of Asian collectors. The top lot, a vertical of four 6 litre impériale bottles of Pétrus, did particularly well, achieving in excess of HK$780,000.
