Record-Breaking Rare Burgundies Will Be Consumed, Not Collected

Tuesday 09:57 GMT

The unnamed buyers who each bought a bottle of 1945 Burgundy for record-smashing prices on Saturday at a Sotheby’s auction in New York are unlikely to let them sit in a cellar.

The 1945 bottles got heightened attention because of the quality of the vintage, but also because only 600 bottles were produced. “The fact these bottles had come from the domaine and gone to the Drouhins and had not moved since makes it as close to the domaine as you can get,” Ritchie says.
