The Friday File: Last week a single lot of 114 bottles of Romanee-Conti burgundy wine sold at auction for $1.6 million, or $14,035/bottle or OMG, $2,550/glass! The price of $1.6 million broke the old record for a single lot of wine of $1.05 million for 50 cases of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1982 sold in 2006. The record-breaking lot contained six bottles of each vintage from 1992 to 2010. Cheers!
