Zachys “The Vault IV” Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg 1999 “Smashes All Records”

Saturday 2021-12-11 wine auction at Zachys Wine Auction New York "The Vault IV" Analysis & Results

Zachys Auction Description:

"The depth and breadth of wines in part IV of this offering is spectacular at every level. But it’s the Burgundy that will make you pause and take stock of exactly what you’re beholding. Roumier, Rousseau, Coche-Dury, Leflaive, Mugnier, Leroy, Mugneret-Gibourg, Ramonet, Raveneau and of course, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. And not just any DRC—one of the greatest collections of DRC ever.

And the highlight among highlights is, without a doubt, lot 278: a six-magnum original wooden case of 1990 Romanée-Conti, bought on release by the current consignor and stored temperature-controlled professionally since. The lot was banded until just recently, when Zachys specialist opened it to confirm the contents. This lot will go down in history as one of the greatest cases of wine ever sold."

Wine funds and the big wine collectors on the phones, guests and bidders at the wine tasting.
