As collectors' attention begins turning towards the end of the month when the 2014 vintages take the spotlight through the en primeur campaigns, burgundy wines are dominating global auctions.

A recent Zachys auction in New York saw lots well exceed original estimates, including two three-liter jeroboams of La Tache 1971 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Burgundy selling for $44,100 each. Other notable lots in the auction included a 12-bottle assortment case of Domaine de la Romanee Conti 1990, which sold for $67,375, six bottles of La Tache 2005 DRC, selling for $31,850 and a 6-liter methuselah of Richebourg 1971 DRC, which sold for $46,550.

Wally's Auctions in New York recently held a two-day February sale where one of the top lots was a case each of 1996 Bonnes Mares Domaine d’Auvenay and Bonnes Mares Domaine G. Roumier. Both sold for the identical price of $19,520.

Coming up on March 25th, Southeby's London has a sale where on of the top items is a six-bottle lot of Romanee-Conti 1993 DRC, which is estimated to sale for 44,000 pounds($64,875).
