half a million dollars – 12 bottles of romanée-conti


The client bought 12 bottles of Romanee Conti 1978, two bottles of the 1961, 1966, 1996 and 2003 and single bottles of the 1981, 1990, 1992, 1995, 1999, 2001 and 2002.

“It is the highest price that has ever been achieved for a single lot,” Managing Director Stephen Williams of the London- based Antique Wine Company told Reuters on Saturday.

Amazing – and that together with the internet being full by 2010, and I think I need to go to the cellar!

    Hello Bill,

    In total the Chinese man bought 27 bottles DRC. But, it still is a lot of money!

    Greetings from the Netherlands,
