“Fifty cases of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1982 have been sold for over $1m in New York, in what Sotheby’s claims is a new record for a single lot at auction.
The lot, going for a groundbreaking sum of US$1,051,600, was part of a consignment from Park B. Smith, one of America’s major wine collectors, and was sold on 18 November by Aulden Cellars/Sotheby’s in New York.”
