Could the record-breaking winning bid on a super lot of Pinot Noir signify better times on China’s horizon?
The world record for the most expensive lot of wine ever sold has been broken as of Saturday with the former price of $1.05 million (USD) being replaced with the new figure of $1.6 million. The wine was sold by Sotheby’s and consisted of 114 bottles of Romanee-Conti from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti. The lot was made up of six bottles from each vintage from 1992-2010. The buyer’s name has not been released.
