De Vogue leads Sotheby’s sale

Sotheby’s latest London auction made over £820,000 and was over 94% sold, with Burgundy’s Domaine Comte George De Vogue stealing the spotlight.

Top lots from the domaine included: two cases of the 1971 Bonnes Mares, which sold for £42,300 each; six bottles of 1971 Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses; eight more bottles of 1971 Bonnes Mares; a full 12 bottles of 1961 Les Amoureuses and 1976 Musigny, Cuvée Vieilles Vignes.

Elsewhere in the sale, six bottles of 1978 Montrachet from Domaine Ramonet made £39,950, a dozen 1978 Hermitage La Chapelle from Paul Jaboulet made £16,450 and full cases of 1976 and 1973 Petrus £11,750 and £11,163 respectively.

Stephen Mould, head of Sotheby’s Wine, Europe, said: “Prices, in particular for Burgundy from the ‘Immaculate Cellar of Rare Bordeaux and Burgundy’, were sensational [while] mature Bordeaux performed well with many of the top lots including Petrus and the First Growths exceeding their high estimates.”
