Cheval Blanc tops London sale
A magnum of 1947 Cheval Blanc was the top lot at a recent London auction featuring the cellar of well-known collector Graham Lyons.
Hosted by Sotheby's, the magnum went for £54,450 to a European collector.
There was strong bidding for Right Bank claret in the shape of Petrus. Cases of six magnums of the 1982 vintage were picked up for £45,980 apiece while six bottles of the 2000 went for £22,990.
Stephen Mould, Sotheby's head of Wine, Europe, said: "Led by the cellar of Graham Lyons, the sale was a great success with many rare wines across all categories performing strongly.
"From Bordeaux, magnums of Petrus 1982 and Cheval Blanc 1947 were stars."
