Burgundy Powers Fine Wine Sales

February 11, 2019

That truth was confirmed by Sotheby's Wine, which is reporting Monday that its total wine and spirits sales rose to more than US$100 million in 2018, up from US$64 million a year earlier. Much of this was driven by several extraordinary Burgundy sales in October, including a 1945 bottle of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, or DRC, for US$558,000 and another DRC 1945 for US$496,000.
