A bottle of Romanée Conti 2011 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, one of the most sought-after wines in the world, recently received a high bid of HK$95,000 at Sotheby's auction. This prestigious Grand Cru from Côte de Nuits has a bottle number of 01585 and boasts an average vine age of 56 years.
Though the label shows slight nicking and peeling from the bottom right corner, and the capsule is slightly scuffed, this particular vintage exhibits a stunning display of elegance and pure breed. With a touch of pomegranate and peppermint on the nose, it offers extreme silkiness and style throughout. The wine's juiciness and sweet finish add to its appeal.
The provenance of this exquisite wine reveals that it was stored in a private temperature-controlled cellar prior to inspection, ensuring optimal conditions for its preservation. With a production total of just 473 cases and an approximate yield per hectare at 26.8 hl/ha, this bottle represents a rare find for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
Serena Sutcliffe, MW, described this vintage as having exceptional clarity and beauty that is tempting to enjoy even in its youth. Her praise adds further allure to this already captivating offering.
With one bid recorded so far, valued at HK$95,000, there is no doubt about the desirability and demand for such a legendary wine. As the auction continues until February 1, 2024, collectors will eagerly watch as bidding unfolds on this extraordinary piece available exclusively through Sotheby's.
