Sept. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Sotheby’s sold 1.36 million pounds ($2.19 million) of wine at a London auction yesterday in which eight of the top 10 lots were from Burgundy and all buyers of those wines were Asian, it said in an e-mail today.

The top lot was a case of Echezeaux 1985 Henri Jayer, which sold for 49,350 pounds, beating its presale estimate, while a case of the same producer’s 1983 vintage fetched 28,200 pounds, Sotheby’s said. The most expensive Bordeaux in the sale was a case of Chateau Palmer 1961, which went for 18,800 pounds.
