DRC and Henri-Jayer wines highlight Sotheby's

Fine wines continue to prove their worth on the auction block, with some tasty contenders in London

Domaine de la Romane-Conti and two bottles of 1985 Henri-Jayer were among the highlights at the Finest and Rarest Wines & Vintage Port auction held at Sotheby's.

The sale took place yesterday (March 17).

Both of the 1985 vintages sold above their estimates - most impressively Lot 71, which auctioned with a price of 10,000-14,000.

From Cte de Nuits, the northern Cote D'Or region famed for its red Pinot Noir, it eventually sold for an amazing 19,550.

Another 1985, Lot 70, exceeding its 5,000-7,000 to bring 8,625.

As we previously reported, a fine selection of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti (DRC) wines also featured in the sale, estimated at 15,000-20,000.

Featuring the Romane Conti, La Tache, Romanee St Vivant and other bottles, the assortment brought 20,700.

Another Domaine de la Romane Conti, 1990 vintage, sold for a staggering $78,000 at Christie's, last month.
