Petrus '82 Fetches Almost $3,000 a Bottle at Sotheby's Auction

  • Latour '82, Lafite '96 in demand as Bordeaux leads top lots
  • Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2000 also features in London sale

Six bottles of 1982 Petrus from the Pomerol region of Bordeaux fetched 12,338 pounds ($17,600) at a Sotheby’s wine sale in London this week, according to an e-mailed statement from the auction house.

The price, paid by an Asian bidder, fell short of the upper estimate of 15,000 pounds for the lot. Two six-bottle lots of the same estate’s 1998 and 2005 wine sold for 10,575 pounds each.
