Domaine Ponsot sees ‘stunning results’ in final Perenchio sale


The second part of Sotheby’s Jerry Perenchio auction, held in New York on 19 May, smashed its pre-sale high estimate of US$3.5m to achieve a total $5.2m, with tremendous results seen for Domaine Ponsot and Meo-Camuzet.

The former led the way with a full case of the 1985 Clos de la Roche, Cuvée Vieilles Vignes realising $123,000, while a case of the latter’s 1985 Richebourg went for $116,850. An imperial of 1961 Chateau Latour went for the same price.

Other auction highlights included cases of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti’s Montrachet and La Tache going for between $79,950 and $86,100, and three bottles of Henri Jayer’s 1985 Richebourg achieving $73,800.

According to Sotheby’s, bidding was particularly strong from “resurgent” North and Latin American clients, who bought 65% of the lots offered. Sotheby’s head of wine, Jamie Ritchie, called the results “stunning”.

The first part of the sale, held in Hong Kong in April, saw similarly impressive results, realising a total $16.2m.
