Romanee Conti
The lot is among the world's most desirable wines

Among the most desirable wines from one of the world's most respected producers, the lot is likely to sell well on May 23.

The auction house comments: "It is more backward than the 1987, 1986, or 1985, and is one of the fullest and most tannic examples of Romanee-Conti I have tasted this decade.

"It may even outlive the otherworldly 1985. It is staggeringly concentrated with a bouquet that almost defies articulation. There is no doubting what it is and who made it. It is a flashy, dramatic wine with astonishing length and mystique."
