HONG KONG.- Robert Sleigh, Head of Sotheby’s Wine, Asia, commented after the sale: “Burgundy, Champagne and Californian wines continued to perform very strongly, along with mature Bordeaux. Commodity Bordeaux from younger vintages, that are still available in larger parcels, received less demand, which reflects the significant volumes of these wines that have been sold in the last two years, along with historic price increases.”

Serena Sutcliffe, M.W., International Head of Sotheby’s Wine, said: “The three thrilling Magnums of Veuve Clicquot Champagne, 1921, 1929 and 1947, came direct from their cellars in Reims especially for this auction were highlights of the sale. They were bought by a Mainland Chinese Champagne connoisseur.”
