DELAWARE – April 12, 2021 – Acker hosted an exciting, two-day auction in Delaware on Thursday and Friday, realizing $6.3 million in sales as Burgundy once again reclaimed center-stage. Burgundy dominated in diverse fashion the Top Ten Lots of this impressive auction, accounting for 81% of the astonishing 277 New World Records achieved, with new superstar Cecile Tremblay taking 23 of those listings alone. No longer a short-list, the roster of Burgundy’s best continues to expand and diversify, as a broad swath of Burgundy’s brightest stars stood out throughout the sale.

The Top Ten Lots of the auction were fueled by Burgundy’s best names, with the top lot of the sale going to six bottles of 2006 Georges Roumier Musigny that sold for $59,760. In a tie for second place, a twelve bottle 1996 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Assortment case and twelve bottles of 2005 Armand Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze in OCB each realized $52,290 each. In the fourth and fifth positions were three magnums each of 2010 and 1996 DRC La Tache, both in OWC, that brought in $49,800 and $47,310 respectively. The sixth spot was shared by consecutive lots of twelve bottles each of 2009 and 2010 A. Rousseau Chambertin in OCBs that sold for $43,575 apiece. In eighth place, six magnums of 2015 Dujac Chambertin in OWCs realized $39,840, while a single magnum of 2003 DRC Romanee Conti for $37,350 clinched the ninth spot. Rounding out the Top Ten, in another tie, was six magnums of 2016 Dujac Chambertin in OWCs and six bottles of 2015 DRC La Tache in banded OWC that each fetched $34,860.

“While Burgundy is leading the way, the entire market is electric right now,” exclaimed Acker Chairman, John Kapon. “We have four sales in production as we speak scheduled for the next two months. Some spectacular cellars are soon to be featured in this sizzling season of sales. Next on Acker’s agenda is our April Hong Kong auction featuring a slew of celebrity cellars lead by Martine Saunier and Domaine Duroché. We’ll follow this up with ‘Viva Italia!,’ our May Delaware sale, that includes six, spectacular, Domaine-direct consignments from some of Italy’s finest producers, then our May Hong Kong sale, with a superb selection straight from the cellars of the great Comte Liger-Belair, followed thereafter by a three-night, single cellar extravaganza beginning on June 8th. Buckle up for the bevy of fine wine to come!”

The auction season continues for Acker with another “live online” auction in Hong Kong on April 23rd and 24th and returns to Delaware on May 12th and 13th. Acker is currently accepting wines for its Spring and Summer “live online” auctions, with weekly web auctions closing every week. For more information, email info@ackerwines.com.
