The final part of Graham Lyons’ fine wine collection was 100% sold by Zachys in Hong Kong last week and realized over HK$31 million.

Offered on 11 September the third and final part of Lyons’ collection made over twice its pre-sale estimate with excited oenophiles who buy fine wine “leaping” at the chance to buy top fine wines from around the world.

Particular highlights included: a Jeroboam of 1961 Haut-Brion which made HK$343,000, three magnums of 1971 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Conti which realised HK$1.2m, a magnum of 1874 Lafite which went for HK$196,000, six bottles of 1929 Yquem going for HK$232,750 and a bottle of 1792 Blandy’s Madeira realizing HK$58,800.
