The Most Lucrative Fine Wine Auction in History Planned by Sotheby’s

Sotheby’s have announced that they will auction one of the most important single-owner wine collections in Hong Kong this March, featuring nearly 17,000 of the finest bottles from Burgundy, Champagne, Rhône, Bordeaux, and Italy.

The sale is expected to continue the momentum of wine sales, especially of outstanding single-owner wine collections. Last year, the auction house’s worldwide wine sales surpassed US$100 million.

Dubbed Tran-scend-ent Wines, the sale has a total estimated value of between between US$19 million and US$26 million, the highest estimate ever for wine auctions.

The most expensive completed wine sale ever occurred in Geneva last June. The private collection of the late Burgundy producer Henri Jayer sold for $34.7 million through Baghera Wines.

The sale will also offer 600 lots of Domaine Coche-Dury, which forms the most complete collection of Coche-Dury to be seen at auction, with the number of bottles potentially exceeding stocks held by the winery.

The 16,889 bottles of wine from the unnamed “Transcendent Collector” in Hong Kong will be grouped into 2,704 lots. The collection boasts over 250 lots of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti spanning five decades, including La Tâche 1953 and Montrachet from 1972 to 2006, and 80 lots of Maison and Domaine Leroy.

The sale will also offer 600 lots of Domaine Coche-Dury, which forms the most complete collection of Coche-Dury to be seen at auction, with the number of bottles potentially exceeding stocks held by the winery.

Additionally, the sale includes over 200 lots of Corton Charlemagne from 1988 to 2012, over 170 lots of Meursault, Perrières from 1982 to 2014, and over 90 lots of Meursault from 1989 to 2015.
