Historic auctions for DBR wines

On 29 October 2010, Sotheby’s held a special auction in Hong Kong consisting solely of our wines.

This was a truly remarkable event, with numerous old vintages of Château Lafite Rothschild on sale, ranging from 1869 to 2009!

Coming directly from the estate’s cellars, various bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild were sold at record prices. Three bottles of 1869 reached the highest price ever paid at an auction for a bottle of wine. Auctions of several vintages of Carruades de Lafite, Château Duhart-Milon, Château L’Evangile and Château Rieussec also reached exceptionally high prices.
