All things being equal, one would expect great Burgundies to fetch higher auction prices than Bordeauxs based on availability alone. And they did in a recent auction in New York where the top-selling lots were Domaine de la Romanée-Conti bottlings that sold above estimate and a slew of Bordeaux first-growths realized less than their Wine Spectator Auction Index averages.
But that’s not usually the case, which is a surprise since there is far more great Bordeaux produced than Burgundy. The top growths in Bordeaux can produce 20,000 cases of great wine a year, which means buyers can secure cases. With Burgundy, or Pinot, you’re usually trying to hunt down a bottle or two.

If the Premiere Napa Valley 2012 wine auction is a harbinger of things to come, the recession—at least for the rarest wines from some of Napa's elite wineries—is over.
Certainly the mood at Premiere was upbeat. Held Saturday at the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, Premiere raised $3.1 million from the sale of 200 lots of wine futures, an impressive 31 percent increase over last year's event.
