Spink Asia has enjoyed a busy weekend of sales, starting with
Singapore's inaugural Fine Wines auction on Friday.
The evening began with a wine tasting of some of Château la
Lagune's finest offerings. There was a buzzing, friendly atmosphere
as bidders were invited to try some of these exceptional wines
prior to the sale.
We were delighted to have with us a member of Château la Lagune,
deepening Spink's exclusive partnership with the Château, which
provided some of its finest vintages for the wine sale.
The sale started on a high note with a very impressive number of
bidders on lot 1, the 6 magnum and 2 double magnum of la Lagune
2000. It sold well above estimate at S$5,490.
The lucky bidder has been invited for a stay at the Château
itself, including a private tasting.
