The 1988 Romanee-Conti case fetched the highest at Bonhams Fine Wine Sale

Who doesn’t like a well-aged glass of good wine, and many would even pay an arm or a leg for one. For Bonhams Fine Wine Sale, the leg and arm took a total collection of $1.4 million. The priciest catch was a case of 12 bottles of 1988 Romanee-Conti, which was sold for $119,300 to a UK buyer. This was followed by 6 bottles of 1985 Romanee-Conti for $80,785 grabbed by a South American and a case of 1966 La Tache sold taken by a North American for $27,706. Strange, though, is a collection of 59 bottles of Château Mouton Rothschild, from 1945-2004, which featured labels designed by renowned artists including Picasso, Dali, Warhol, and Miro, was snapped up at $84,465. Some other treasures included Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Chateau Lafite Rothschild, and a case of 1982 Petrus. The auction has been in inception for two years.
