by Westgarth Wines May 14, 2015

Burgundy was the guest of honor at Sotheby's most lucrative New York wine auction in 15 years. The sale of the Don Stott Cellar brought in a crowd hoping to buy fine wine. Buyers came from Hong Kong, Mexico, Brazil, Canada and both coasts of the US. Total of proceeds from the auction came to over $8.4 million, some 22% above the high estimate projections.

The highest price of the sale was $58,188, paid by an Asian private collector for a case of DRC Montrachet 1973.
