Sotheby’s Hong Kong is delighted to announce the sale of a prestigious private wine collection – Only DRC – A Private Cellar of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti – on 7 September 2013, offering 129 lots of DRC wines valued at HK$ 11 – 16 million/US$ 1.4 – 2 million. Over 75% of the wines in this sale were originally purchased, on release, directly from one of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s importers. They were subsequently sold, as part of a larger collection, to the current owner, so these wines have only been owned by two collectors since being released from the Domaine and distributed by the importer. Moreover, the Domaine has informed us that, following the 2009 vintage, they will no longer be offering wines in a format larger than a magnum. This sale offers a unique opportunity to acquire 36 Methuselahs (6L bottles) of the wines from DRC, as this size will no longer be offered for sale from the 2010 vintage onwards.
Auction Venue: 5/F One Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Hong Kong
