Someone Still Has Money in this Economy - Wine Auctions Up 45%

This wine is NOT coming out of boxes.
In their most recent lot, a case of a 1996 La Tache went for $23,900 and nine bottles of 1991 Chambertin went for $17,925. We realize that fine wine is very expensive, and by all accounts HDH is a very very good auction house - nothing whatsoever against them. Here we were ranting about $20 cocktails, thinking that was expensive in a recession. Clearly, we've set our foodie sights far, far too low.
