Acker hosted an intimate, 700-lot, single cellar evening sale on Thursday night, “live online” in New York, raking in $4.2 Million with 100% of lots sold. Bidders from around the world demonstrated high interest in this unique collection of pristine provenance with an average lot price of $6,000, setting 124 New World Records. Collectors will be pleased to learn that the second installment of this record-setting consignment will emerge once again on the second day of Acker’s next sale on Thursday and Saturday, November 5th and 7th, in an even larger single cellar session in Hong Kong.

The Top Ten Lots of the auction were again dominated by Burgundy, and first place was taken by a twelve-bottle original wood case of 2001 Domaine Leroy Romanee St. Vivant, selling for $59,520. Second position was a tie between twelve bottles of 1996 d’Auvenay Mazis Chambertin in OWC and 1995 G. Roumier Bonnes Mares in OCB, each realizing $55,800. Claiming the fourth spot was twelve bottles of 1998 d’Auvenay Mazis Chambertin that sold for $49,600. Fifth place brought us a three-way tie, with two parcel lots of twelve bottles of 1996 A. Rousseau Chambertin in OCB, twelve bottles of 1996 A. Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze in OCB (both New World Records), and twelve bottles of 1998 d’Auvenay Bonnes Mares, each achieving $47,120. Twelve bottles of 1993 Meo Camuzet Richebourg rolled in eighth, bringing in $43,400, and twelve bottles of 1962 Maison Leroy La Romanee filled out the ninth spot, realizing $37,200. Rounding out the Top Ten was the sole Bordeaux lot, as six magnums of 1982 Chateau Latour in OWC sold for $34,720.

This astounding collection, predominately composed of the top wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy, achieved 124 New World Records. In accordance with recent trends, the top Burgundian names were the stars of the sale with Louis Jadot collecting 24 New World Records, 16 for Domaine Leflaive, and 14 each for both Domaine Dujac and the combined estates of Lalou Bize-Leroy—Domaine d’Auvenay, Domaine Leroy, and Maison Leroy.

“We are firmly in the midst of one of the greatest auction seasons of all time,” exclaimed Acker Chairman, John Kapon. “The quality of the wines coming to market is unparalleled, with few so stunning as the collection of the Golden Phoenix. While the first installment of this consignment was titled the ‘Phoenix Rising,’ we look forward to the second installment of this marquis collection in our upcoming Hong Kong auction in November now that the Phoenix has fully ascended! Even before that, bidders should not miss October 24th in New York, where we will offer an incredible estate collection, significant selections of Domaine de la Romanee Conti and top young Burgundy, alongside the most spectacular private collection of Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair ever to come to auction!”

Following the close of the sale, Acker immediately launched its second, ”live online” sale in New York this month on October 24th, highlighted by four fabulous featured collections. The second offering from the collection of the Golden Phoenix will take place in Acker’s next Hong Kong auction on November 5th and 7th. Acker is currently accepting wines for December “live online” auctions, with weekly web auctions closing every week. For more information, email info@ackerwines.com.
