DELAWARE – October 18, 2021 – Acker continued to dominate an insatiable wine auction market with a double-session sale in Delaware on Friday, October 15th, hammering down US$10.4 Million in sales with 99% of all lots sold. A case of 1991 Domaine Leroy Musigny sold for a World Record US$460,650, while Leroy set an astounding 43 New World Records overall. The sale resulted in an impressive 245 New World Records as Acker eclipsed US$40 million in sales this Fall alone, adding to its dominant 40% market share. “The Lifetime Collection of Dr. Ivan Volent” shattered its pre-sale expectations of $4 Million, achieving $6.65 Million in only 178 lots. An amazing 67 of those lots set New World Records, as buyers battled ferociously over the great provenance of Dr. Volent’s collection.
