‘Dream’ Burgundy auction to take place in Hong Kong
A “dream” collection of more than 200 lots of Burgundy will go under the hammer in Hong Kong on 9 June.
The wines on offer by Sotheby’s will include gems from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti and Armand Rousseau, as well as Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair, Comte George de Vogue, Leroy and Coche-Dury. The majority come from revered vintages such as the 1990, 2002, 2005 and 2009.
Adam Bilbey, Sotheby’s Asia head of wine, said: “We are thrilled to present this dream cellar of Burgundy’s finest in a city that shows an insatiable thirst for these wonderful wines. Asian buyers claim 58% of Sotheby’s worldwide wine sales last year, and we will continue to drive the growth in this thriving market.”
