Chateau Mouton Rothschild auction brings in HK$32 million

by Westgarth Wines February 03, 2015

The first ever ex-chateau auction of Mouton Rothschild last week at Sotheby's Hong Kong gallery brought in HK$32 million (US$4.1 million), more than double the pre-sale estimate of HK$13 – 20 million / US$1.6 – 2.5 million.

The auction saw impressive results with 93% of the 263 lots selling above their estimates, including the world auction record for a 66-bottle lot. The lot included vintages from 1945-2012, with the exception of the 1958 and 1963 vintages. The lot beat the pre-sale estimate of HK$2 million and sold for HK$2.94 million.

The only other time Mouton Rothschild has sold wines at auction shipped directly from its properties was at Sotheby’s in New York in 2007.
