Report on December Auction & Announcing The Date of January Auction

For those of you who participated in last week’s December Rare & Fine Wine Auction, you would know what a fun and successful night it was. We had a broad range of exceptional wines; perfect for festive gatherings or further cellaring, including a collection of 76 lots from a Passionate Enthusiast’s temperature-controlled cellar.


The top 2 hammer wins of the auction were two Lafite — the 1982 Chateau Lafite Rothschild sold for $3818.75, followed by 2001 Chateau Lafite Rothschild magnum at $2115, great buys!


The assortment of rare Bordeaux was exceptional, 1983 Chateau Lafleur reached $1292.50; 1995 Chateau Lafite Rothschild sold for $963.50; both 1966 Chateau Cheval Blanc and 1966 Chateau Latour got snapped at $940 each while 1966 Chateau Margaux sold for $822.50.


Also, on offer in the last auction of 2020 was an impressive collation of big formats. 1994 The Antipodean Balthazar (12000ml) achieved $1762.50, while 2005 Te Mata Coleraine imperial (6000ml) reached $940, and both 2006 & 2007 Te Mata Coleraine magnum (1500ml) sold for $481.75 each.


Wines stored in their original wooden case (OWC) hold the most market desirability and garner the best prices.
