Acker kicked off the second half of 2020 early this year, bringing its own fireworks display to Hong Kong, selling an estimated HKD$31 Million/US$4 Million while setting 100 New World Records, in a two-day sale on Thursday, July 9th and Saturday, July 11th. With COVID-19 restrictions relaxing in Asia, the sale saw increased live attendance in both Hong Kong and Shanghai despite the auction’s virtual format.

Bordeaux was large and in charge in this unprecedented July auction, carrying eight of the Top Ten Lots of the sale. Leading the pack was twelve bottles of 1959 Chateau Latour, which sold for an impressive HKD$421,600/USD$54,400, followed closely by twelve bottles of 1982 Chateau Petrus in original wooden cases at HKD$396,800/USD$51,200. Third place was shared by four fascinating lots of rare wine: an incredibly rare two bottle lot of 1983 Henri Jayer Richebourg, six bottles of 1959 Chateau Latour, twelve bottles of 1961 Chateau Montrose in original wood, and twelve bottles of 1982 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, all of which realized HKD$223,200/USD$28,800. The seventh through tenth positions were also a four-way tie, with nine bottles of 2009 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg, a twelve bottle OWC of 1989 Chateau Haut Brion, ten bottles of 1961 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, and ten bottles of 1959 Chateau Palmer each selling for HKD$198,400/USD$25,600.

A splendid selection direct from Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py, the oldest cellar in Burgundy, was one of the highlights of the auction. This thirteen generations old Burgundian family has produced wines of incredible concentration and quality, vinified with minimal intervention. Of the eight New World Records set from this Domaine-direct consignment, two were set by the Domaine’s ultra-rare Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, with two bottles each of the 2010 and 2015 vintages both selling for HKD$44,640/USD$5,760. Other lots to make the record book were six bottles each of 2015 and 2016 Mazis Chambertin Tres Vieilles Vignes, which went for HKD$29,760/USD$3,840 and HKD$27,280/USD$3,520 respectively, six bottles each of the 2015 and 2016 Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, realizing HKD$24,800/USD$3,200 and HKD$22,320/USD$2,880 a piece, and six bottles each of the 2015 and 2016 Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques, hammering at HKD$10,912/USD$1,408 and HKD$9,920/USD$1,280. It was a pleasure to welcome the wines of this historic family to Hong Kong and an honor for Acker to offer wines direct from its cellars.

“It’s nice to get a head start on what we expect will be an incredible Fall season,” said Acker Chairman, John Kapon. “The demand in the market continues to strongly point up, as numerous buyers from around the globe clamored once again over another catalogue chock full of the world’s greatest wines. It is great to see life getting back to normal for all our friends in Hong Kong and China, and we look forward to normalcy returning for the rest of the world as well. We are currently accepting consignments for our Fall auction season and will continue to make the best of, and offer the world's best, in what has been an incredible year for the fine wine market. Our 200th Anniversary continues to be memorable in every way.”

The auction season continues for Acker with a “live online” auction in New York on September 12th and in Hong Kong on September 26th. Acker is always accepting wines for consignment. Weekly web auctions are closing every week. For more information, email info@ackerwines.com.
