One of the most superb collections of mature wines ever to appear at auction, the cellar of the legendary entrepreneur Jerry Perenchio brought a total of HK$52,821,120 / US$6,730,467, doubling pre-sale expectations (est. HK$19.7-27.5 million / US$2.5-3.5 million), with 100% of lots sold. Prices soared for Burgundy, with 12 bottles of Romanée Conti 1971 reaching HK$3,198,000 / US$407,489, equivalent to HK$266,500 / US$33,957 per bottle, more than triple the pre-sale estimate (HK$950,000-1.4 million / US$122,000 – 179,000). The 1966 vintage, on offer in a 9-bottle lot, also exceeded expectations to bring HK$2,337,000 (US$297,781), equivalent to HK$260,000 / US$33,087 per bottle. Henri Jayer’s Richebourg 1985 drew spirited bidding, with two three-bottle lots selling for HK$984,000 / US$125,381 each, equivalent to HK$328,000 / US$41,794 per bottle – also tripling pre-sale expectations (est. HK$300,000-400,000 / US$38,000 – 51,282).
