In the money

Hong Kong Tatler - - News -

After a slow 18 months, Hong Kong’s fine wine mar­ket looked hot again in Septem­ber, with Acker Mer­rall & Con­dit post­ing about US$5.8 mil­lion in sales from its first au­tumn auc­tion. The bids were strong­est for clas­sic la­bels and vin­tages, from 12 bot­tles of 1978 Do­maine de la Ro­manée-conti La Tâche at US$70,116 to a 65-vin­tage col­lec­tion of Château La­tour for about the same price. Other popular wines were Bur­gundy’s 2000 Henri Jayer Cros Paran­toux Vosne-ro­manée and 1996 Ar­mand Rousseau Chambertin-clos de Bèze, and Bordeaux’s 1982 Château Mou­ton Roth­schild and 1975 Château Pétrus. Three bot­tles of the Napa Val­ley’s 2009 Scream­ing Ea­gle Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon sold for about US$7,000.
